Winter Wonderland.......

Hello there, firstly I would like to say a big thank you to all my wonderful friends who left me a comment on my last post, you are all so very kind and thougthful. My brother is on the mend and everyday we can see an improvement in his physical injuries, I think the test will be when he has to go out on his own but I'm sure he'll be ok, he is a very strong man with lots of support.
Every year I buy a new Christmas stamp set and this year I have bought two Winter Wonderland and Christmas Greetings from Inspired by Stamping. I love these snowflake stamps, they work perfectly with the Snowflake Nestibilities. Even though I love to take time over some of my Christmas cards with lots of layering, stitching and inking, I also do a batch of quick & easy cards, where I can get a little production line going, as I have to make so many. Here's this years quick card:


I stamped the two different snowfakes onto white card in SU Baja Breeze ink and covered with some glitter film, I used the snowflake Nestibilties to cut them out, layered them with a 3D foam pad and added a rhinestone to the centre. I then stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Greetings set in SU Real Red ink.  Joanna is offering FREE SHIPPING on all stamps anywhere in the world,today (24th November) and Friday 25th November, just use discount code IBSFREE, you don't get that anywhere very often !!!!

Happy Thankgiving to all my friends across the pond, have a wonderful day.

That card is beautiful. Did you ever crochet something like a snowflake in fine thread and add it to a card? Its good to hear your brother is on the mend. That must be a big relief.
