Festive Flurry Winter snowflakes

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and hope 2014 is all you'd wish it to be. 

I'm joining you finally today as I'm trying to follow my New Year's resolution to be more organised around the home and therefore have more time to be crafty.  Unfortunately crafting has had to take a back seat lately and I've missed it so much!  So it was with happy delight I disappeared for a while today and made this card.

Now you can't be more organised than this.  First Christmas card for next year, I mean this year!  I must say I'm not really over Christmas yet.  I was quite sad to take all our decorations down.  No more sparkly lights to brighten up the dark nights. :( 

I've used shades of blue to fit with the Less is More colour challenge this week.  Festive flurry is stamped in Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise and Soft Sky.  The sentiment is from That's the Ticket stamped in Tempting Turquoise and punched out using the Ticket Duo Punch. I used silver card stock as mats and added some silver ribbon to "hang" my ticket from.  I added some extra sparkle with 3 Basic Rhinestones of differing sizes.  I corner punched the main panel to reflect the ticket sentiment. 

I'm also going to pop this into Merry Mondays which now has it's own blog.  This week you have to add twine or ribbon. 

So I know I said this before, but in my defense Christmas came along, hopefully this is me back on track! 

Looking forward to catching up with you all. 

Take care, keep cosy and happy crafting!! x
