Christmas Catch Up at CCT

This week on Cute Card Thursday we are playing Christmas Catch Up and our sponsor for the challenge is Whiff of Joy.  Do stop by the blog to read about the prize and see what the DT have created.

My card is one that thankfully I had made last week .. .. the pesky germs are messing me about and I'm struggling again.  I thought yesterday I was on the mend and managed to finish filling and rubbing down the small area of skirting board where the sideboard will go, and I even made some buns.  But, the buns are not very nice and the bugs hit me back hard in the night - or I've got a different lot knocking me for six.

Anyway, as I said, thankfully I had already made this card with sweet Don shoveling the snow and a couple of extra stamps from the winter scenery set, coloured with my Copic pens.  I've used the Marianne Design Wintertime paper bloc again and cut out various MD die cuts to embellish.

Here's the card.  I've used a soft blue chalk ink to highlight the embossing on the die cuts and around the edges of my papers and image, then finished off with Stickles and pearl drops for the falling snow.

These are the Marianne Design things I used:
Wintertime paper bloc - PK9100
to create the faux stitched effect - LR0161
Don shoveling snow stamp - DDS3337
Don & Daisy Winter scenery - DDS3331
Warm Wishes stamp from a MD freebie in a magazine last year (came with Don ice skating)
mittens - CR1255
snowflakes - LR0124
Scandinavian heart - CR1228
Let it Snow label - LR0187

Now to challenges I can enter with my winter scene: Moving Along With The Times are looking for a Winter Wonderland, Crafty Little Fairies' theme is Let it Snow, and so is Christmas at Sweet Stampin', Incy Wincy and Craft Your Passion.

I still have the 2nd quickie CAS card to share with you so will try and sort that out for tomorrow, until then it's back to the Lemsips.
