Crafts & Me DT Card.............Winter brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hello all my lovelies how are you? Its freezing up here in the North but thankfully not as cold as yesterday. I took my son school yesterday morning & going along I put my window washer on to clear the windscreen & the water froze as soon as it hit the window..........couldn't hardly see out & in a big van thats not good. Luckily I was only a few yards from leaving mine so I was able get a jug of warm water & defrost it lol.

Well today sees a fabby new challenge over at CRAFTS &ME & this week the lovely Angela has chosen the theme which is...................WINTER - snow/snowflakes
I decided to use a stamp that is not actually a crimbo image but I think she suits all types of cards & of course she has wings & Im a sucker for my angels/fairies....

I love this image she is so beautiful. I decided to break out my distress inks but I have ran out of my usual watercolour paper I use & found this, dont know who its by as it no longer has a cover......wish I knew tho cus its crap!!!!!!!! It really is rubbish & made using the inks really hard & after I had finished I didnt like the end result but didnt have time to redo with copics :0( so excuse colouring..........

Its another simple flat card for crimbo posting..............I tell ya these are killing me if only postage was cheaper!!!!!!!!! 

Ingredients are;
Image is 'Turn To Hesed' by Sara Burrier exclusive only for Crafts & Me, coloured with distress inks & wings covered in stardust stickles
Wooden Snowflake I heat embossed with white & silver powder.
Papers are Websters Pages & edges inked with Vintage Photo & matted onto kraft card & then onto a 6x6 card blank.  Winter sentiment stamp which I recently found in my mess I call a craft room lol. Pine tree branch cut out of white card & edged with a touch of vintage photo.
Pearls, gems, ribbon & ribbon slider all from my stash.

Well thats it from me we look forward to seeing your wintery creations. Please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations..........they are ALL stunners!!
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate you all & loves ya all.

Your card is gorgeous Vicky....even if the paper was "crap"! The fact that you created this beauty regardless of the paper is a sign of a true artist. I could never pull it off!!!! I love distress inks, but needs lots more practice!!

Sue said...

Wow! this is gorgeous Vicky! I do love that image - she's beautiful. Love the papers and layout and the embellishments are all perfection! really sweet card!
I know what you mean about the cost of postage. It has shot up!!! I had to rethink my Christmas Cards this year and do CAS so flat. I hate having to do that - they should maybe have a reduced fee for postage at Christmas!!!
Hope you have a good day!
Hugs Sue xx
