Mum - Look Away Now!!!

Back again, a bit later than planned but hey it's still December and still this year so I'm doing better than recently lol. But on the plus side I have passed my exams - 2 modules down, 3 to go lol :) so happy :)

Anyways have been busy this week been getting my family's Christmas cards finished and have been getting a picture frame done for my room featuring some of my holiday pictures - just can't decide how to 'scrapbook' the 3rd space in the frame .... hmmmmmmmmmm decisions decisions.... lol. Might have to have a go after I've posted this and written my shopping list for tomorrow.

Anyways onto Christmas cards, and my first challenges in ages so have picked some easy ones lol. Anyways this is my Mum's card off me - I LOVE this image, really is one of my faves cos it's just so typical of me and my brother when we were little, and we've got countless videos and photos to show it - just need to subsitute the snow for the sea (or river or lake) and the sledge for a rubber dingy lol.

I added lots of glitter for the snow and glossy accents for the wellies - I love the glossy wellies my fave bit :)

Supplies: Stamp by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug, Copics, Promarkers, Glossy Accents, Papers from Stash, Felt Snowflake off an old Christmas Card, Ribbon from Stash, Buttons from Stash, Red Ink Pad

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 50 - Bingo (Felt (the snowflake), Spots (the ribbon and dots on the paper) & Buttons (the buttons lol)

 ABC Challenge - F is for Frosty

Right I will be back in a few mins with another card to post... XOX
