Sweet Stampin DT Card - Snowflakes & Challenges

(click photo for a better picture)

Hello Everyone, what a soggy week we've had here in England but at long last its the weekend and time for a new challenge over at the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog. This weeks theme is "Snowflakes". I decided to go vintage for a change and have used the lovely Bo Bunny stamp sent to me from the lovely Linda aka Pinklilac. Coloured with Pencils & Sansador and all the papers, image and Martha Stewart Snowflakes have been distressed with a Copper Encore Ink Pad and a Brown Chalk Ink Pad. Used the Gold Viva Pearl Pen adding lots of Pearls. Have torn all the papers though not sure what they are as they are from my scrap draw, but I do like them.

We'd love you to join in this weeks challenge and I do love taking a look at what you've created. Cant guarantee I can get to everyone but I do try when I have time to hop.

More cards for Daniel arrived and I promise now he has bought them back home I will make a list of thanks an piccies. He had a good day today but this week has basically been a nightmare and several days of missing some lessons and tears on the other end of the phone. He's taking a few days off next week, special leave they say. I'm not a happy bunny!!

Hoping my mojo is slowly resurfacing. Hard to focus when I've other things on my mind lots of you are still visiting my blog.

Thats it from me for now, here is a list of challenges my card fits into;

Crafty Catz - Paper Tearing
Paper Sundaes - Let it Snow

Hi Claire

I was so sorry to read that things have still not improved for Daniel. I'm not surprised you are not a happy bunny .. .. I wouldn't be either!!

I was pleased to hear that Daniel had a good birthday though. He looks as though he had a good day .. .. which is brilliant.

I hope things start to improve soon.

Your card is lovely by the way. Great layout and colours.

Love Jules xx
