Let it Snow

What a week, I seem to have spent my time chasing my tail and never actually catching it! The kitchen saga is still rumbling on although I'm now down to just two missing doors both of which have been wrongly delivered twice so far!! Today I was going to work wonders and woke to a power cut (or should I say yesterday as it's now Sunday morning!). My mojo went completely awol last week and I have a veritable pile of green things lying on my desk none if which would make themselves into a card!! I have managed a quick one for this weeks challenge.

Taking inspiration from Chrissy, stamp is from Personal Impressions, stamped in versamark and heat embossed with detail white EP, masked with post its and inked with various blue DIs. Sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped in blue jeans DI. Snowflake has been stamped in versamark and embossed with vanilla ice sprinkle and sparkle EP. Finished with some gems.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - let it snow
Totally Gorjuss - let it snow
Phindy's Place - clean and simple
Simply Create Too - embossing
Allsorts - it takes two (colours)

Apologies for neglecting everyone last week, hopefully I'll get caught up with everyone soon.

  1. Hi Carol, think its time to slow down now don't you?!! and its so annoying when they don't sent the right item in the first place but then to get it wrong a second time is even more annoying on to a better note! your card is lovely as always:) Sandra H

  2. I'm glad I inspired you to make this really pretty card Carol. I think that it would have worked well even without the additional three lovely snowflakes!
    Thanks so much

  5. I like this one. I made green cards all week yesterday, but non suitable for LIM, not until the end of the week. I really like your snowflake like this, and the sentiment is beautiful.
    I am glad your kitchen saga is coming to an end. Just in time for christmas.

  6. Beautiful card and such a delicate and pretty colour
