Snow much Joy

The weather has turned cold again brrrrrrr. But that is ok as I was making a Christmas card today. I did clear a little more of the allotment pond this morning though - managed to catch a colourless mole on the side of my face and had blood everywhere!!! Not pleasant when you are busy de-cluttering lol. Here is the pond now:


And now for my Christmas card. I wanted to use some of my peel-offs but still enter various Christmas challenges, so here is what I came up with:


The snowman is a peel-off, and he was a little so-and-so to get off the backing sheet!!! He originally said Merry Christmas in his tummy, so I cut this out and added a 'Joy' star instead. The image was coloured using promarkers, including a metallic to add some glitz, and then cut using the X-cut large frames die.This was mounted onto gold mirri card, and then onto a purple card blank. To finish purple diamantes adorn the top corners and a brown pearl was used for the obvious eye.
This was created with the following challenges in mind:
Card Mania - Pearls and swirls (the swirls are on the joy sticker)
abc-challenge J for Jewels
Jingle Belles Let it snow
alphabet challenge G for Glitz and Glam
abc-christmas J for Joy
TPE300 Anything Goes
CRAFT 312 Christmas - no green or red
Creative Corner Anything Goes
completely christmas #64 Include a candle
crafty hazelnuts 230 Die-cut or punch


I also started designing my next tattoo last night. It is going to be a phoenix for my ankle (I already have a butterfly on my right ankle), but I haven't decided how I want the wings yet. I also think the tail may need to be a little longer (or body a little shorter lol).


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I will post an update on my height chart on Wednesday for those who are following the progress.

  4. What a cute card, the peel-off snowman is adorable! I always have great trouble getting peel-offs stuck down evenly, so I admire how skilfully you've mady your card! I hope the mole is better - they can be such a pain! Thanks for joining in at CRAFT Challenge!
