Well Howdy Y'All

A big "HELLO" to my new followers - thank you so much for choosing to follow me it means so much and I am very flattered indeed.

It's Saturday - again already - and that means it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and this week we would like to see all your creations with a 'Snow' theme which is just perfect timing as I get to make another Christmas card, (oh my gosh I am sooooo behind!).

Our generous sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion, so if you would like to win a £10 voucher to spend in their store get your entries in and as always, make sure you check out what the wonderful DT ladies have made.

Here is my card:

The recipe for my card is as follows:

Stamp:  Wee Stamps - Angelica from Dies to Die For
Papers:  Simple Stories from The Hobby House (if you can't see these on the web site give Jill a call and I'm sure she'll be able to sort them out for you)
Corner Die:  Whimsy - Corner Die Set from Dies to Die For
Flowers:  Kort and Godt
Rhinestones:  The Hobby House

I have coloured the image with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E44 E43 E42 E41 / N0 (shading)
Coat:  E29 E27 E24 E22
Top:  E42 E41 E40
Trousers, Leg Warmers and Socks:  E42 E41 E40 / E37 E35 E34
Squirrel:  E15 E`3 E11 E00 E0000 / R20 (cheeks)
Squirrel Hat:  E27 E24
Little Birdie:  E35 E34 E31
Branch:  E27 E24 E23

I have outlined the image with Iced Spruce Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Liquid Applique has been used for the snow on the branch which has been covered in Glamour Dust
Angelica's wings, coat, the squirrel's hat and all the snow has been doused in Glamour Dust

And there you have it.

I hope you will be able to come and join in the fun with us over at Totally Gorjuss.

Thank you for all your lovely comments - they mean so much.  I will be back later in the week with some blog candy as a way of saying "Thank You" for your continued support.

Have a great week.

Hi Hazel, so sorry I've not been by for ages - no excuse other than lack of time! Suppose it must be a good thing my daughter woke up at 6.30
this morning, at least I've had a chance to catch up on your beautiful cards!

So admire your colouring, it's perfect everytime and your layouts for your cards are wonderful too.

Hope you are having a good weekend.
