Little Birdie


As the UK is currently inundated with yet more snow we have a suitably themed card for you.

I have used the current sketch at The Sweet Stop for the layout of this card. The snowflake paper is a gorgeous wrapping paper from Paperchase. It is one of my favourite places to go if I go shopping in Birmingham. They always have gorgeous droolworthy items and they are very reasonably priced. Of course the papers are far too nice to actually use as wrapping paper so I often buy a couple of sheets to make cards. This has got lovely metallic silver snowflakes scattered with the blue ones but the metallic hasn't picked up in the picture very well.

The dotty paper is from an old DCWV stack, the faux stitched ribbon is Papermania/Docrafts, snowflake from a Christmas garland and the clear and blue gems are from Paperchase too.

The digi image is by the Prairie Fairy coloured with Promarkers and lots and lots of stickles. The sentiment is a Doodlebug sticker.

In Birmingham we have had about 4" of snow yesterday and it is really cold today so not going anywhere soon. It was coming down so thick and fast and it was lovely to not have to go out in it. I was happy as Larry crafting and watching CSI while Paul was tinkering on his computers. It was a lovely lazy Saturday, all thanks to the beautiful snow :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
