Brrr.... It's Cold enough for snow!


Only kidding,  but I thought I'd share another Christmas card using the  Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint sketch,  with a few extra silver embossed snowflakes.  I've used some very old papers, which I inked around the edges with Chipped sapphire and a piece of torn embossed greetings,letting the Merry Christmas show, this was also coloured with the C S ink.  A bit of muslin and a Tim Holtz Snowflake flurries die cut.  A  reasonably flat card, so perfect for posting.
I am entering this at:
  Country View Crafts -  The colour Blue
  Allsorts - Christmas
  Rubber Dance - Colour theme (I've picked Wintry Sky and Tis the Season)
  Penny Black and More - Anything Christmas

Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it.

Lovely card to start the week Avril and great for our challenges at PB&M and Allsorts, apols for the brief comment but struggling with blogger issues on computer so using my tablet which is not ideal for less than nimble fingers.

I've got a pretty good idea of how many Christmas cards I've got ready for this year but have totally forgotten about postage details... Wonder how many are normal weight and size, hmmmm..... This one is good for that purpose it sounds. It looks pretty in purple and blue and that snowboarder die is on my wishlist. Pretty card.
