White Christmas




Good Morning,  Well the snow is back, not quite as heavy as predicted but there is a lot more to come.  It went down to -10 last night Br...........  it was cold especially with the wind chill factor too. 

I made a white card last week for one of my SIL's  and thought it would be nice to make the other two a similar one.  I've used sweet sneaky Tilda yet again.  Can't help it, she is one of my fave at the moment. I'll get on and make the other one later today and probably post it tomorrow.

I embossed a plain white card with drip drop folder and then added a doohickey doily lace die. Tilda has been coloured using water colour pencils and pro markers for the skin tones and hair.  I've added lots of lovely snowflakes from a Marianne D's die and glittered them all with Glamour dust from decoart.  The rest of my recipe is below this post.

I still can't quite believe that this time next week it will be Christmas Eve.  I wonder what Santa will bring me this year. What!!!  do you mean, of course I still believe in Santa. lol

I hope you all have a wonderful day.
