Well Hello....have you missed me?

A very good morning to one and all.....have you missed me? Well I have to put my hand up and say that i am soooooo missing blogging at the moment. I had a huge urge to craft a couple of days ago and made a couple of creations yeah. I'm not back full time just yet but will try and post when I can. My daughters wedding is 8 weeks this Saturday so you can imagine I'm still busy busy. Anyways todays card yip thought I better make a start on the Crimbo cards as it is only 144 days to the Big Guy pays a visit yeah.........I lurvs Christmas I do.

I couldn't wait to use my new cuttlebug folder Graces Frame I decided to cut out the middle section of my frame and added snowflakes embossed panel behind for a layered effect. Adding a few punched snowflakes for effect covered in Star Dust stickles. 

The image is a Forever Friends sticker put on white card and then cut out shaped slightly using my bone folder and adhered to the card. I added white flowersoft and glamour dust to look like he is standing in snow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Our Creative Corner ~ Christmas in July
Winter Wonderland ~ No Designer Papers
Dutch Dare ~ Anything Goes
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club ~ Mistletoe Kisses

Thanks for stopping by...
