tis Friday again, and time for another theme over at SCD. We are still on our Christmas Card month and its fab to have so many players taking part.

So, the theme for this week has been chosen by the very talented and my very dear friend, Ang and she has chosen:-

Blue and White Snowflakes

Here is my take:-

I have made an easel card for this week, they are so popular at the moment and so easy to make! The main part of the card has background paper created by using a snowflake stamp from Purple onion, this was stamped in three different blue inks and then ice stickles used to add glitter. The main image is again a stamp from Purple Onion and this was stamped onto metal, embossed, filled, sandwiched and filed and then sprtized with glimmer mists before being adhered to the front of the card. The base uses background paper entitled "Good Cheer" by October Afternoon, the stopper was created by stamping a penny black stamp and gems were then added.

I hope that you pop over to the SCD blog and see what the other DT members have come up with, some gorgeous examples there, and also our special GD, Pia, is still with us.

Have a good weekend and thank you for taking time to look at my blog....xx
