Let It Snow.....

Hello everyone how are you all? Sorry I am late getting round, Payton didnt want go home yesterday when Ben & Megan were leaving & we felt so sorry for her cus she was crying cus she wanted stay at nanna & gramps..............so yes, we had her stay at ours. Well whats a nanna to do  ;0)

Anyway's I do have a card, I did mean to do it earlier but I've been stalking the LOTV shop for the new stamps & lots of others lol..............well they had a sale!!! Then late this afternoon we took Payton home (yep had tears again ) & had a cuppa with Megan & kisses with Arjay.
So here's my card............finally lol.
The papers are my absolute fave paper Maja Design & these are from the new Vintage Frost Basics. I have used '9th December' & '10th December' both sheets have been inked with Pumice Stone DI & machine stitched. I've also added white gesso to them.

The lace with the pearl centre is from my stash & the lace thats on the tag is also from my stash.

I have added a large sparkly snowflake which was from Asda last year. The 2 flowers I've made with a MB die with the same paper & inserted a Tim Holtz 'Bauble' inside each one. I also added white gesso to these as well. I also added Magnolia 'Vintage Berries' in blue.
This is the inside complimenting the front. Excuse my thumb in the corner again............I really need to keep that thing out of the way lol. The frame is spellbinders but I dont think you can get these anymore. I've had this nearly since I started crafting. I inked it up with Pumice Stone.

The tag is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey & the sentiment is a wood block one from my stash. The tree is a Marianne Design die which I have covered in glass glitter...........wish I could capture the sparkle on it :0(
I also added a Tim Holtz Bauble to the lace on the tag.

The uber cute image is of course LOTV James Bear 'Santa Stop Here' I lurve James Bear & I've been wanting the one with the christmas tree for ages but its always been out of stock, even when I placed my order this afternoon. However when I went to get the link for this stamp I saw he was in stock...........yes yes yes I got him lol. I dont care I didnt get 20% off him I'm just happy to have him woooooo hooooooo.
He has been coloured with distress markers & stardust stickles added to his hat. I also added glamour dust to the snow.

The bracket-y thingies were made with Joy Crafts 'Edge' which I cut in half & inked up with Pumice Stone DI.

Well thats it from me but lastly I do want say a huge thank you for your lovely comments about Arjay. I have been asked how long does he have the cast on for & all we know is about 5-6 months depending on scans, hopefully it wont be any longer than that. 

Thank you for stopping by, huge hugs to all
