I just love Snow!

Hi to you all lovely people out there!

Hope you all had a FAB week end! The weather is so lovely here in Scotland! The sun is shining!!! We had a lovely weekend.  My dear friend had a market stall in a big Craft Marque  at a Game Fair this past weekend and we went along to give her support! It was just wonderful! The best of all it never rained! We are all going to another Game Fair this coming weekend with our Motor home and she is having another fair at the Craft Marque! This is also like a big get together for a lot of our friends and family and just all sit at night next to the lovely fire and have a few bears and the ladies all having wine and a good catch up.

Well I better get back to business!

We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 July. 
The theme for that challenge is Chalk Board Technique  
So come and share your lovely creations with us at Sweet Stamps monthly challenge here


Here is my Recipe!

I used Textured White Card Stock and made a 8 X 8 Card
Layered Blue and white card
The background paper is an image from the internet 
that I printed off and added Stickles to the snowing hills
I used a Marianne Design Die, Anja Corner LR0200 on all 4 corners. 
My frame is a Spellbinder Die Grand Nestability Floral Ovals
The center I cut out by using another Spellbinders Die Plain Ovals 

My Image is a lovely Duo Stamp from SweetStamps.com
I coloured them in with Promarkers:
Sandstone, Caramel, Burnt Sienna, Pumpkin,
Lipstick Red, Pear Green, Olive Green, Moss,
Cobalt Blue, True Blue, Powder Blue,
Baby Pink, Rose Pink, Ice Grey 1 and Cool Grey 5

The Inside I printed off another sheet and just made dots with the Stickles
I stuck my negative of my die and 
added 4 lovely snow buttons from my stash 

At the back I had to hide were I added my extra card stock to create my 8 X 8 
I had some left over card from the inside and just cut to size and 
added over the extended card

I hope you all enjoyed looking at my project as much as I enjoyed making it .
