Snowball fight!

Hello lovely people,

It's a double blog post day from me today so if you're after my card for In The Pink then just scroll on down.

However, if you are here for the new challenge at Crafty Little Fairies then you are in the right place and our theme this month is...

SPARKLE AND BLING

We have 4 fabulous sponsors this month so do check those out on the blog to see what you could win :-)

I am on a roll this year with my Christmas cards and for this one I have teamed up a new-to-me Tilda and some of my enormous new stash of Pion DP!  I bought loads of Christmas papers, some from new and some from old collections.
My bling is a little shy in the photos but I have some from the Frantage in the corners, gems on the snowflakes, a little charm and the snow is all covered in glitter...fairly subtle I'll admit but that's how I like my bling :-)


I adore skiing so of course I had to get this Tilda stamp although she does appear to be snowball fighting rather than skiing!
I did think about giving her gloves but it's quite hard to roll a good snowball with gloves on so she has bare hands... just in case anyone was wondering!

Sweet card, Kat! Love the pretty papers, cute Tilda (I agree, snowballs are better made with bare hands - the snow tends to stick to gloves!) and delicate snowflake embellies! Hugs, Lisa x

Oh this is soooo lovely Kat! I have to admit I tend to "chuck a load on there" when it comes to Frantage, but seeing your more subtle approach I have to admit it's really, really lovely and perfect for this card. Love it! x
