To You From Me

Hellooooo everyone hope you are all have a fabby dabby weekend.
Mine is spent wallpapering......my eldest son Ben & Megan have got me wallpapering their entire living room.......good job we love our children lol.

Anyhoo's todays card is with a stamped image I coloured a few weeks ago but I saw the new challenge over at one of my favourite challenges Hanglar & Sweet Magnolia & thought this cutie was perfect.........so I made this card for that challenge. I know that never happens!!
I'm sorry but how adorable is he..... Ok papers I've used are Maja Design 'I Wish' collection, sheets I've used are 'I Wish For Lots Of Snow'............omg I really do ;-) & 'I Wish For Frosty Mornings', both 12x12 sheets. They have been inked with Pumice Stone, distressed a wee bit & then machine stitched.
The card shape is with a Go-Kreate die.

All the flowers are from Noor Design UK as are the Pomegranate Apples, there is also some moss in there. The grey lace & rusty star thingy ma bob are from LLC. Leaves are with Tim Holtz Holiday Greens.
Have you seen the little tag......thats from Magnolia's latest Aspen Collection & you can get it here from Noor Design UK........I stamped it in cocoa memento onto kraft card & stamped the sentiment which comes with it in black, then tied some Chocolate Waxed Cord through the top.

The ribbon I've add for quite a while & got it from Ebay with lots of other colours that sit unused in a box lol.......shame really as its beautiful ribbon. The centre bling is from Noor Design UK & I tied a couple of rusty bells from it with waxed cord again.

So this cutie is a Magnolia stamp & one of my favourite christmas stamps.......he's just adorable!!
He is called 'Frosty With Snowflake' from the So Snowy collection 2009, I think lol.
I stamped him with versamark & then heat embossed him in white & coloured him with distress inks.....I forgot how fun these were to do, I havn't done one for a looooong time.
I added glitter to his star & underneath him for snow & his hat. & I added a sparkly gem for the centre of his snowflake. I also added shabby white frantage as snow
He was cut out using a Memory Box stitched oval & behind him is a Joy Crafts 'Holly Leaves' die.


As always I decorated inside to compliment the front. The poinsettia I fussy cut from another Maja Design sheet....cannot remember what though ;-( The little Snowman postcard stamp is from Maja Design I Wish Emphemera Cards sheet which got a little bit of distressing.
I also added Gesso & Snowtex here & there for that little bit extra wintage lol.

Well thats it from me a busy day ahead decorating.....as long as they keep the cups of black tea coming & throw in some choccy biscuits now & again it will be grand lol.

Have a good day everyone, take cate
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
