Hello from snowy Glasgow!! Did you see my pictures yesterday...OMWord...what fun Ruby Rocky and I had in it!
Before I get on with today's challenge I'd like to thank everyone who entered Pam's WOW challenge last week...all I'll say is WOW and glad I didn't have to choose the winner's lol. Make sure you check the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of them :-D
As you know we ran a little Guest Designer competition and today is the debut of the 3 winner's, Sally, Diane and Catherine. Make sure you give them a big Ladybug welcome and lots of Ladybug Love :-D
This week's challenge has been chosen by my Megamazing Right , Left, Centre, Top and Bottom hand Lisa lol. She's opted for sparkle and snowflakes....perfect for this time of year. We all had to use December's SOTM Tom & His Reindeer
I love this stamp..it's one of those you look at and go ??? and then you stamp and colour it and go 'now I get it' lol. I had good fun putting my card together though not without it's challenges and boo boo's! Here it is..let me know what you think...
The picture is not doing my felt ric rac justice!! IRL it tones in with the other reds on the card...what's that all about??? I'm kinda thinking I should have used gold cs for the snowflakes but hey ho, I'll remember for next time. I stamped Tom & His Reindeer in Momento ink and coloured it in with my Copics. I decided to emboss the image but unfortunately got the folder back to front and debossed instead!! I don't think it has the same effect but too late now hmph! I used my PTI ric rac die and cut out a couple of borders and sewed them to the pp and stuck it down to the main card. The snowflakes are cut from a Nestie die that hasn't been used since this time last year...it's not as fine and detailed as some of the dies out there now but I kinda like the chunky snowflakes.
Looks like the snowman had chicken pox hmph!
Despite the debossing and chicken pox I really do like it lol.
