Snowflakes everywhere!

Hello there,

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are keeping well.

Sorry I've been rather quiet recently...but I have some fab news....I am moving house! This is of course causing me all kinds of chaos (between packing and internet providers!!) and therefore I'm relying a little bit on scheduled posts at the moment. I've also been a bit limited in the card making and the baking!! This is a very sad state of affairs!!  However, in a couple of weeks time we will be settled into our new home and I really can't wait!!

Anyway, enough of me moaning....we have a new challenge for you this week at Celebrate the Occasion...we want to see your punches or dies this week. I got a little bit carried away with this challenge and made two cards.....

Card one is made using a fab image from our current sponsor Floppy Latte.....

 
I've gone with an icy blue and grey colour scheme to match the cute north pole image...my snowflakes are punched from white paper and are covered in glitter glue. The image is coloured with my Promarkers.
 
Card number two uses the same punch, but with a fab santa image.....
 
 
I've used polka dots and snowflakes in the background to compliment my glittery snowflakes. My cute Stamp Fairy image is coloured with my Promarkers and I've added a little sparkle to Santa's hat with my Stickles.
 
Pop by the Celebrate the Occasion blog to see what the fab DT have created for you this week!
 
I'd like to enter this santa & rudolph card in the following challenges:
 
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Merry Christmas
Love to Create - anything goes
 
Pop by all these fab blogs to see what the DT have created for you.
 
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
