Brrrrrr It's Cold!

Hello, I'm back after a lovely relaxing holiday - fabulous weather - it was 33 in the shade and night time about 25-  and now back to reality and feeling the cold!
Thank you for all your visits and lovely comments on the scheduled posts, I did appreciate them.
My Christmas cards were all made before I went away, most of them in small batch production lines, great when time is short.
For this one, the main image is a Flonzcraft stamp and I added a snowy background. The background paper was stamped with  Stampendous 'Postcard Greetings' before embossing with a Tim Holtz snowflake folder. The snowflake die cuts were coated with Twinklets Diamond Dust.
That's it for now, some catching up with DT comments and then I can start visiting you lovely blogs to find out what you've all been doing.
Enjoy your weekend.
Avril xx

Stamping AND embossing the same paper, what a great idea, I'm sure going to try that. The end result looks fantastic!

A wintry scene that really matches the arctic weather we had this weekend when we visited Edinburgh! You'll see the piccies on FB :-) could have done with some of that 25 at night temperatures during the day LOL
