Snow Angels

I used to love making snow angels when I was growing up. There was something magical about the whole process of finding an untouched patch of snow, falling back and moving your arms up and down and then carefully removing yourself to see the perfect angel you'd made in the snow.
It was that childhood memory that inspired me to come up with Nikki & Buttercup Snow Angels...
I teamed up some SU! kraft cs with Bo Bunny pp to create this card.

Does this bring back any memories?




LOL...here's Buttercup trying to make her own angel.
I'm still working away on samples and it looks like I might have enough for the weekend. I'm going to cut this short and get back to it.
Thanks for stopping by :-D
Catch ya later x

It doesn't bring any memories since here in Paris there's never enough snow to make snow angels... But it seems fun!

Oh, this definitely brings back memories for me. We get lots of (too much!) snow here in Ohio. And like you, I can remember trying to be so careful when getting up so that I wouldn't mess up the angel lol!

This card is so pretty. I love all the sparkle and I love that image. And Bo Bunny papers are always a favorite of mine.

This stamp makes me laugh cos last year during our LONG HARD WINTER I got an amazing photo of my son doing exactly the same thing, making snow angels! I'd imagine alot of people can relate to it. Lovely card, love Nikki's fluffy hat and her crystal buttons!!! .....wish I was as classy as she is!! lol xx

Love the touch of glitter! I'm embarassed to say that Steve and I created snow angels not that long ago when we were skiing in France! Yeah, I know, I still have a lot of growing up to do!!

Lovely card. Love the colours used in this one.

Bring back memories - no, I still make snow angels, I go outside with the kids to do it. Means you can get away with not looking really silly because I'm 'showing' the kids how to do it LOL.

I also love having snowball fights with them. As the saying goes - You don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing!
