I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

One card - five challenges (now 6)

I haven't participated in any challenges for a while so I thought my first Christmas card for 2011 should be for a challenge and then found it fit five! (Now six - thanks Kate Mwah!!!!)
  1. Sketch & Stash #52 - Sketch layout
  2. Stamp with Fun #93 - snow
  3. Digital Tuesday #93 - All white except one image
  4. Papertake Weekly - Cold & frosty morning
  5. ABC Christmas - A for anything Christmas
  6. Winter Wonderland - Let's go dotty.
I used an image I bought last year from Digistamp Boutique which I forgot I had LOL. Minimal colouring so fits well with the CAS look.

IMAGE:
"Happy snowmen" from Digistamp Boutique
MEDIUM:
Promarkers from Secret Crafter
TOOLS:
Cuttlebug
Circle and scallop circle nesties
Swiss Dots embossing folder
Martha Stewart Snowflake punch
X-Cut scallop border punch
OTHERS:
White glitter card and white linen card from Secret Crafter
Pearls from stash
