Papertake Weekly GDT Card- Baby its cold outside

Good morning my lovelies, how are you all? Well for the 1st time this winter us here by the sea have snow, I've had to keep kids off school. Typical we get snow when we are helping Ben & Megan move house I'm babysitting Payton & Natalie & the youngest is helping his dad load the van ;))

Well its time for a new challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly & the themem this week, aptly called.............
.........yea it is, I'm sitting here in the conservatory looking at my snow covered garden lol.
I decided to go vintage again as I want to do more vintage & shabby chic this year, I dont like to do the same kind of thing & I'm worried about getting stuck in a rut, so you will be seeing different things this year ;0)

All the flowers are from WOC & I added 'Holly' underneath out of kraft & gave it a light dose of 'Snowtex'. I also added white 'Pearl String' in amongst the flowers.

I made a double bow with 'Shabby Seam Binding' & attached 2 silver bells which I covered in 'Snowtex' & added a 'Scalloped Pearl' to the centre. I covered a silver 'Metal Corner' with 'Snowtex' too.

I cut out these tags from the papers I used & cut out the letters & popped foam squares beneath them to make them pop out that little bit more. 
I also added  a strip of 'Jute' fabric but twisted it & doused it with 'Snowtex',  I also added 'Jolie' lace underneath.
If you click this pic you should be able to see where I have twisted the 'Jute' fabric. The bead trim is from my stash so is the wooden snowflake which again got snowtex treatment & I added this fab 'Let It Snow' charm.

The image is from the Pion range & this image is from the sheet  'Fairytale Of Winter' I so struggle when it comes to choosing an image as they are all so so gorgeous. I also added snowtex in places so add a bit extra snow ;0)  I have also used Pion paper Silent Night
 'Nativity Scene' & inked the edges. Sooooooooo love Pion can hear my sobs everytime I cut into it :0( I also added a 'Doily' & some 'Cheese Cloth' underneath there somewhere lol.

Well thats it from me hope you will join along with the fabby challenge this week.

I will be around to see you all, although it may be a bit sporadic as I've got Payton & Natalie so will only be able to use my lappy at certain times.............when Payton is alseep lol, she likes to press all the keys, also when we have an Ipad or a laptop in our hands we usually have to go onto You Tube to watch her
 favourite video.........she is sooooooooo my grandaughter she loves any music with a beat ;0)
She even says 'Again' when it finishes & when you say again she says 'Yeah'.........I could eat her up she is so darn cute..........she is my yummy bear lol ;0)

Thanks for stopping by & for your support it means the world my lovelies mmwah
Tatty bye xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Sweetie I am so sorry I have not been around to comment on the postings I have missed. I have read every one though. Lol!!! I do hope you are feeling a bit better sweetie. I also hope Ben's move goes smoothly.

All of your cards are awesome. Your layouts are always super. If I put that amount of gorgeous embellies on my work they would look a mess and I would get in a right old state. Your have a fab flair for laying it all out and it looks super.
