So, in celebration of the lovely weather, I have made a Christmas card based around snow lol.
he challenge sketch (#71):
I used a free embossing folder from Cardmaking and Papercraft 135 on white card for the first strip. I then rubbed VersaMark ink over the raised areas and heat embossed with white and glitter embossing powder to give a subtle sparkle. For the second strip I covered card with two different Washi tapes (which should have been for the Jingle Belles challenge, but I finished too late!). I used a blue die-cut circle and stamped a kitty from Pepper's Christmas Party stamp set, with tatty teddy grey ink. I coloured this in with promarkers and added liquid pearls where the snowflakes should have been on the scarf. A sentiment was added to the topper, a ribbon to the bottom, and finally a snowflake button to the top. Peel-off snowflakes were also added to the Washi layer.
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

The cat who turned on and off by Lilian Jackson Braun
This is another Qwilleran and his cat’s story. I do love these, the humour is just brilliant and the storyline is always good too. These books definitely keep you guessing and giggling – and you just want to meet those kitties! This particular book sees Qwilleran doing a feature on ‘Junk Town’, a neighbourhood of antique dealers, with an uncalled-for bad reputation. His story aims to show the real community behind Junk Town – but Qwilleran cannot feel easy with the apparent accidental death of a favoured dealer. Koko assists Qwilleran through his ability to turn things on and off (although this is only a brief part of the story, but it is the part that answers all the questions). Definitely a must read/listen from me :).
Thank you for looking
