We were delighted when my oldest stayed over on Friday night as he was taking part in a 5k charity walk at the beach through his work and we are just a 20mins walk away from the beach. It was soooo nice to have all the family together for a little while.
( they couldn't have picked a worse day to do the walk ,it was just pouring with rain- he came back soaked to the skin and frozen!)
But while he was away I managed to get this card made for the challenge over at MCV. This week the guest designer was the very talented Tracey Mc Neely,Don't you just love her card?? As usual didn't have the snowdrift die or a christmas tree one -some how no matter what I buy for my stash I never quite seem to have the right die or stamp for my project! :) but I think I managed to improvise not too bad....Used tumbled glass DI for the background and used a circle mask for the winter sun. Cut the triangles out of SU DP scrap paper and the snow drift was ripped paper,die cut some tiny stars as it is a early frosty morning...,yeah I know I'm reaching :) but it needed something and I didnt have any thing to make snow :( and then I stamped a flonzcraft sentiment.But still felt there was something not quite right ,then I realised that my trees were ''floating' oh no I had forgot to add the trunks and I had stuck everything down !!! hopefully no-one will notice that they are a late addition :)
Thanks for taking the time to look.
