Snowman Hugs

Hiya, well that's Christmas over, hope you have all had a good one and were spoiled rotten!! I've had a great one this year as we were able to spend it with our family and more importantly our first little grandchild 'Olivia'... The best early Christmas present by far!!

We have now moved in to our new place, still have a few outstanding things to be done and fixed though, but will have to wait till next year!!

Now on to sharing some inspiration. It's my turn today to share for Digi Doodle Studios. I'm using this fab winter image called 'Snowman Hugs', you can find it here.



On a 7x7 blank card, I matt and layered purple non-shed glitter card and patterned paper, with ribbon border. The image, I printed on to watercolour card, coloured with Promarkers, added various loose glitter for depth and effect, then die cut out, layering on die cut glitter card. Decorating with die cut vellum poinsettia flowers, die cut berry sprigs and twigs. Finishing off with gems, glitter glue...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Bloggers and Followers, hope you are all well and starting to get into the throws of the Christmas rush!! I still can't think about it yet...Today I'm all set for last minute packing and ticking off my to do list for our big move tomorrow!! ... I do appologise for not being about for the past couple or so weeks, it has been all go with the move. Been doing a big clear out as we go, and oh my can't believe how much stuff we hoard, that hasn't seen the light of day for years!!

So on to the reason I'm here, today Digi Doodle Studios is kindly sponsoring Crafty Catz weekly challenge, so I am sharing with you a little card I created, as being GDT, using Chipper Tweets...


Taking a blank 7x7 card, I matt and layered white embossed card and red satin card, twice, creating the double panels. On this I added more matt and layered card, this time die cutting the red/white card and embossing the white with different pattern.
