Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 110 - Let it Snow

Happy Saturday Everyone

I hope you have all had a good week.  Only a couple of weeks left to go till Christmas!  I just can't believe how quickly this year has flown by!

This week's challenge over at Totally Gorjuss is "Let it Snow" and this week's fabby sponsor is Crafter's Companion.  Check out what the DT ladies have made for you to get your creative juices flowing.

Here is the card I have made for this challenge.

I just love Lili of the Valley stamps, they are just wonderful to work with.

I'll make my apologies for the rubbish pictures now - this weather is just no good for taking pictures in natural light and I hate all the hassle of having to get my light tent out then plug all the lights in and around it and then ending up with an average image at best - wow how grumpy am I!!! 

Anyway, I have purchased an all new singing and dancing light box (I hope) which has all the daylight bulbs inside it so all you have to do is plug it in, switch it on, put your card (or whatever you want to photograph) inside and bobs your uncle!  Sounds great and I can't wait!  I'll be back with more updates when I get it.

Okie dokie, so rant over about the weather and pictures (sorry!) - the recipe for my card is:

Stamp:  Lili of the Valley "Feathered Friends"
Papers:  My Minds Eye "Jolly Holly"
Poinsettias / Spacers / Brads:  The Hobby House
Circular Stamp:  "Cats Life Press" from Happy Daze

Image has been coloured with Copics:

Coat & Hat:  R39 R29 R27 R24 N7
Boots:  E37 E35 E33 N5 N3

Hat & Trousers:  E43 E42 E41
Coat:  E37 E35 E34

Boots:  N7 N5 N3

Branches:  G28 YG67 YG63
Robins:  R17 R14 E35 E34

Everything has been coated in Glamour Dust and Stardust Stickles
I have edged everything in "Festive Berry" and "Walnut Stain" Distress Inks

One last picture of the inside of my card before you all drop off and fall asleep:

That's it from me - I hope you all have a great weekend and keep all well wrapped-up and warm.
