Snow Burst

Welcome, I've had a busy week with no time for blogging or craft until today, I've had Emma home and John is leaving for a trek across the Simpson Desert on Saturday so we have been shopping and cooking at night after work to get ready. This morning I had to go and find a flannelette sheet to make into a 'jelly bag' for inside his swag as the nights are mighty cold. Emma also left back for Mount Gambier this morning, there have been some big storms around the state today so I hope she has managed to miss most of it - it is a five hour drive which is a bit tiring on your own.

Just three of us for craft today, I managed to make a couple of Christmas cards and  I am entering this one in this weeks Annabelle Stamps Blog Challenge - Say it With Snowflakes



Recipe:

White card and Navy card base.
I punched out snowflakes in 2 sizes then stuck them to white card lightly, brayered the card with SU Bashful Blue then removed the snowflakes leaving the white image. I then used a snowflake from SU Snow Burst and stamped randomly in SU Not Quite Navy.
Pale Blue Rhinestones were added to the white Snowflakes and Silver rhinestones to the navy snowflakes - the scan makes the colours a bit hard to see.
Sentiment was a free image from Simply Cards - stamped in SU Not Quite Navy
