I've got Frillies!

Yes, after weeks of trying to decide between the different shapes and sizes, I finally ordered a set of Go Kreate Large Frame Frilly #10 dies - and what wonderful service, they came the following day!  Of course, now I want another set .. .. but will have to wait a month or so for the piggy bank to fill back up!  I've had no problems cutting through a double layer of card to create my blank, making sure I didn't go all the way through on the spine so I had a card .. .. and then cutting a paper layer to fix on the top.  Expect to see several shaped cards in the next few days .. ..

But this is my first design, a Christmas card with Lili of the Valley's stamp, the perfect snowman, coloured with my Copics then a touch of Lace Stickles for the snow.  I've embellished with various Marianne Design snowflakes, and had to strategically place a couple of them when I discovered that I hadn't washed my hands well enough after picking strawberries from the garden - oops!  I've also added lots of Stickles to the snowflakes too, a real sparkly number under the lights, but not showing up too well in my pictures.

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge is for snowmen or snow-women this week and Holly Jolly are also looking for snowmen, and I think I can just about manage to enter the Christmas Card Challenge for snowflakes.

I'm supposed to be tidying up the table and putting crafty things away before the grandkids arrive, but I might just finish off another frilly card I have almost made, then I can schedule it to share with you tomorrow.  Enjoy your day!
