Pinch, Punch..............

Hi all

.... the first of the month. Well we have certainly closed the door on summer firmly behind us. I woke up this morning to a really blustery, rainy day, the sort that usually has you reaching for a warm mug of chocolate and an afternoon curled up on the sofa reading. So thats exactly what I did.... Dean was out with some friends and all the chores were done (well the urgent ones anyway LOL).

However, I did manage to finish off this card this morning for the Colour Create challenge, which was actually to make an all white card (with the exception of the image) and I used the sketch from Mojo Monday. The stamp was the very appropriate Snow Joy from Penny Black, which made it eligible for the Penny Black Saturday challenge of 'white on white' and all mounted on glitter paper, with  a bit of bling on the sentiment which qualified it for the Simon says stamp challenge of 'all that sparkles'.

 The image has been coloured with Copics and then the snowball was given a little wash with H2O's, but this doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Recipe: 205/365 Stamps: Penny Black - Snow Joy & ...Snow. Paper: Pearlescent & glitter card from The Glitter Pot. Cuttlebug Embossing folders - both ironicly called snowflakes! Tulle from Crafts u Love. Pins by Making Memories from the Craft Range. Diamante & Pearls from stash and last but not least a liberal dash of Star Dust stickles.

Off for a nice girly lunch in Guildford tomorrow so hoping we all have a better day tomorrow.

Thanks for looking

Sara xx
