Snow Family

 
Good afternoon everyone - at last the weekend is here again and opportunity for a bit of crafty time. The weather here in Liverpool is absolutely atrocious today with heavy rain, so all the more reason to stay indoors and play with my newest crafty stash.
 
I ordered a couple of the latest lotV Chrimbo stamps recently, and also treated myself to a couple more new Joy Crafts dies in the shape of a couple of snowflakes. I decided to go for a monochrome theme as that fits a couple of challenges at the moment - this is what I made.
 
 
Stamps: LotV "Snow Family" and "Christmas Grungy Sentiments";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; liquid pearls on the snowflakes and Stickles on the groud and snow children's hats :-);
Papers: LotV "Krafty Christmas";
Supplies: gems by Papermania; sparkly snow pearls and ribbon from my stash;
Tools: Memory Box "Frostyville Border" die; Joy Crafts "Winter Wishes" snowflake dies.
 
 
Challenges:
Lili of the Valley (August) - Make It Festive
Crimbo Crackers #48 - It's Snow Business
Divas By Design - Christmas In August
CRAFT #220 - Christmas
Simon Says (Wednesday) - Monochromatic
Dream Valley #63 - Monochrome
Allsorts #220 - Use Your New Stash
Totally Gorjuss #197 - Die Cuts & Punches
Charisma #32Ice Cream Flavours
(coffee and vanilla)
 
That's all for today ... I guess the Chrimbo cardmaking will be starting to ramp up from now on :-)
 
Have a great weekend, whatever the weather's doing.
Hugs,
