Playing with some new goodies


I haven't made many Christmas cards this year yet but buying some new stash in America which I couldn't wait to use was a good chance to make another Christmas card. Anyone who knows me will know I love snowmen and I couldn't resist buying this stamp when I visited the MFT shop in Florida. The yummy papers are also new, Bo Bunny Altitude. Fell in love with the colours and at about £4.50 who could resist. Even better when I got to the checkout they were half price!

I coloured the image with Copics and added some stickles and clear Wink of Stella pen to the heart. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the trees were from Joy. I wanted them last year and when I saw that Noor! Deisgn Uk had 30% off  whilst I was on holiday I ordered them and they were waiting for me when I got home. Gotta love the internet. I used a white Wink of Stella pen on them and the MB stitched snowflakes.

Can see why you were unable to resist that snowman Marianne, he is very sweet and really like the shape of those trees.
