Manly Christmas!

Good Morning,  I'm hoping the rain stays off long enough for me to go a walk.  I went one yesterday with the children.  They were on their bikes and Mum was puffing along behind!

Onto todays card.  I'm playing along with The Friday Mashup which is a square sketch this week and make it manly.

I swapped my snowflakes to the other side as I just felt it looked better.

My card base is Crumb Cake textured and the card is 6" by 6".  I started with Lovely as a Tree stamped in Night of Navy.  I masked off the snow to sponge in the sky with Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.  The oval was mounted onto Night of Navy Card.  A strip of Whisper White was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  This is a really versatile folder which can be used for lots of occasions but I particularly like it for a snowy scene.  I added a some Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.  One of the snowflakes has been glittered using VersamarkHeat and Stick and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  This is a lovely glitter, it's very fine and gives a super sparkle to your projects.  A Basic Rhinestone gem was added to the centre of the snowflakes which I had in my stash.  The "for you" sentiment is from Occasional Greetings and has been stamped in Night of Navy.  I used two oval punches to make my sentiment tag - The Extra Large Oval Punch for the Navy background and The Large Oval for the Whisper White.

Still time to join my Stampers 6, I'm looking for 4 members to take part in the club.  You will receive a free catalogue and a small gift to enjoy whilst looking through your new catty!  Check out the tab at the top of the page to see details.

Right the sun has peeked through so I'm off for my walk before I find something else to do!!

Hi Aileen, Lovely to see you playing with us again at the Friday Mashup. I really like your interpretation of the sketch, moving flipping or moving things around a little is ok if it works better for you!

I really like you trees and the twilight sky you've created. Really lovely.
