Snow is Falling...

Good morning folks and another post from me!!

Well first I thought I would give you a wee update on my new iphone...I am now loving it!!  You were all right!!  I have everything in the one place..emails, messages, calls, blogger, music and it!!

The challenge today over at Lili's Little Fairies is "Christmas in August"...a nice easy one.  

So for my card I have used one of the new Christmas stamps from LOTV...I just love snowmen and when I saw this stamp I knew it was a must.  I have coloured the snowmen with copics and done some shading with polychromos.  The papers are Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate...which are nearly finished....:(  The snowflakes have been punched in the same papers, the tree has also been cut with paper from the same collection.  I layered the papers onto kraft card and added some stitching to each of the layers and the distressed the edges.  The tags are also from LOTV and have been attached with some twine.  I finished with some pearls, giant gems and glitter...lots of it!!

papers - Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate
stamp/tags - LOTV
pens - copics
pencils - polychromos
die - Distinctively Dee's Tree
punches - MS Arctic Snowflake and Himalayan Snowflake
rhinstone brads/pearls - the Hobby House
