Snowy Days

My first Christmas card ready for 2015!  I am getting ahead of the game! It could be used for a winter birthday card I suppose but I am going to keep it for a Christmas card.

The scene is made by using Hobby Art clear stamp set Woodland Glade and the words are from Christmas Post.  The stamping is done with black Versafine embossed with clear powder.  I used Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and Black Soot for the sky and a little Black Soot round the edge and a touch of blue on the snow.  There is loads of dries white glue and glitter for the snow.  The base card is a lovely dark blue but it looks quite black in the picture, sorry!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Hobby Art - Winter
That'ts Crafty - Anything Goes

Please pop over to these fab blogs and have a look!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas!  Thank you for visiting me - I really appreciate it loads and loads! Take care. Christine xxx
