Happy Winter!


Morning Fluffers :)
 


 
Christmas. It's coming! You know my feelings on Christmas Cards on any days other than Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. But, seeing as I'm on the Design Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin, I am forced, forced, to make one Christmas Card each month. This is a cunning plan to have twelve Christmas Cards in advance of my usual panic date of 23 December. Clever, huh?!

To help overcome my feelings about making Christmas Cards, on any day other than 24 December, I have decided that any Christmas Cards I make, will not say 'Happy Christmas' on them, which is great, as I'm not big on sentiments anyway. But also allows me to convince myself I am making a Seasonal Winter Card, and not a Christmas Card. Job done.



So, over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin this month, we'd like to see Cute and Cuddly in Non-Traditional Colours. I don't mind telling you, this one had me stumped for quite a while. Cute and Cuddly, no problem. Non-Traditional Colours, no problem. Cute and Cuddly AND Non-Traditional Colours... erm...

Anyway, this is my take on Cute and Cuddly in Non-Traditional Colours. I am kicking myself for glittering the red ribbon, as, the colouring underneath was not half bad. But, you know what a job it is to pick glitter off, grain by grain...

Ah Faye, this is such a cute card. Love the paper piecing! I've covered up some good coloring with glitter sometimes too, I do think the glitter was a good choice though - very nice touch to the card.

Yep. About as difficult as it is to pick it up off the carpet!! Nice ploy. Would now be a good time to tell you I have 34 stock piled?
No thought not!!
