Ooh La La’s ‘Christmas’ challenge. Part of the journaling was inspired by a line from this weeks song from the SIWAS challenge site ‘run and hide’. The journaling reads ‘It was such a treat to have deep snow at Christmas; it made the traditional Christmas Day walk much more fun as we all went sledging on the bridge. Games in the garden were also fun with us all running and hiding from Andy who could throw snowballs further, harder and more accurately than anyone else’. For decoration I used a snowman stamp, a pair of boots cut out of another designer paper and an embossed snowflake so this layout also fits with Creative card crews ‘best foot forward’ and DYSU ‘emboss it’ challenges.
Stamptacular’s site, which was to use a photograph as inspiration. The moment I saw the photo I knew which stamp I wanted to use, the chandelier that came free with Crafty Stamper. I stamped and then heat embossed that onto pale lemony creamy coloured card which I layered onto white and then black card. I kept the design of this card clean and simple so it also fits with CCT ‘CAS’ , with Delightful challenge ‘things with wings’, Meljen’s ‘use black’ and with Tuesday Throwdown and Spoon full of sugar ‘birthday’ challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
