Snowflakes challenge at fab'n'Funky Challenges

Good morning lovely blog friends

Firstly I must thank all of my lovely friends who sent me such kind messages and left such comforting comments after my last post on losing my lovely cat Barney.  I really was so touched by your kindness and support, I  feel so fortunate to have had so much understanding and kindness shown.

I haven't so much as picked up a pen until I made this card last night but I've decided it's got to be onward and upward from here on, sad as I still feel I'm sure that creativity is a good healthy distraction.

Its our last challenge of the year over at 

Set by our lovely Rachel the theme is


We are sponsored this week by 

and had some gorgeous images to play with 

I chose Flakey Friends which is the snowman image- available here

I also used one of the lovely background digis from Make it Crafty
Called little village scene available here

I had to photograph it in poor light last night so it doesn't show all the - way over the top - glitter that I used !

This is what I did...

Image - Flakey Friends from Stampart design by Kathryne
Background image -little village scene from Make it Crafty
Coloured with copics
Glitter glue - stickles 
Ribbon - vintage seam binding - crafty ribbons
Snowflake punch - martha stewart
Glass snowflakes - ebay (ages ago)
Sentiment - from the holiday stamp set at hot fudge studio
Dies for sentiment - spellbinders circles and scalloped circles
Kraft card - MFT

We hope you'll join in with our last challenge for the year - I'm sure there will be lots of snowflake cards around this week
