Hi, Today we woke up to the deepest snow i have seen for years! David went out to see if he would get his car out and it was up over his knees all the way along the road...he had no chance, totally snowed in! Its so beautiful to look at but the kids are out and in because the schools are all closed and there is wet clothes and boots everywhere! They are having great fun though! They are making a full size igloo later seemingly!
Anyway onto the card i made as i sat at my desk watching the snow get deeper and deeper! The sketch i followed is from the LOTV challenge blog. I love this image i have used, she looks so different every time i colour her with a different colour scheme! I have used Promarkers to colour her and the white i have used flocking, not that you can see much if it in the picture. The colour scheme came about from the Daring Cardmakers challenge, they are asking for Spots and Stripes. The DP is "Jolly Happy Xmas" from Dovecraft. I have also entered the Passion for Promarkers challenge. They have a challenge and a blog hop running for 2 weeks. The Theme is "Old and New". Well this card really fits the challenge, The flower i have on my card i have had since i started out card making a good few years back. So old it had lost the green leaves from the back of it! The new things is the DP's and the charm and chain. I have seen a few people use a few links of chain to dangle charms from lately but the first time i seen it was on Bev's blog, "All The Things I Love". The Crafty Catz Challenge is "Christmas" and Stampin B's challenge is to make a holiday card and the Paper Cutz challenge is Anything Goes this week so i am entering these challenges too.
