Bloomin' weather...

... well we were supposed to be meeting friends and going to climb Roseberry Topping, but the wind and rain has put a stop to that - mind you I think the boys breathed a sigh of relief - but there is always next week mwah ha ha!!!

So a sneeky bit of craftin has been done and then I really must step away from the pooter and do some much neglected housework.

Here is my first Christmas Card of 2011, I saw a challenge on a gem of a challenge and thought that was quite different and fancied a go - popped to the Pink Gem shop and spotted a super cute image and knew what I wanted to do - yay I was finally going to get to use my fluffy stuff and heat gun (which hubby bought me last christmas and I've only just took it out of the packaging!!)

It was quite tricky to get a decent photo but I hope you get the idea:

I have used my fluffy stuff on the bear and promarkers on his scarf then Sakura gitter pen on the star. I have matted the image onto embossed paper and then distressed/glittered around the edges (not sure if that shows) added white organza ribbon from stash, punched some snowflakes and again used sakura pen on them and that is it.

I would like to enter this into:

A gem of a challenge - white on white
Paperplay challenge - christmas in August
Simon says stamp - all white
Ooh la la - christmas
Craft room Challenge - white on white
Fab & funky - christmas
