Yet another week has raced on by, therefore it is time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty. This time our challenge couldn't be easier...on your creation just...
'ADD A SENTIMENT'
This could be for any occasion; Christmas, birthday, anniversary, baby, get well, etc.
We have 2 generous sponsors this week, who are offering great prizes.
I was asked to choose any image from the wonderful range of images from
Fred She Said Designs. It was difficult to narrow my choice down to just one,
but I finally chose this ever so sweet digi, Snow Lady-Light Up Your Holidays.
She was a delight to colour, and I think is destined to become one of my favourite
Christmas images. I smothered all my snowflakes with Stickles Star Dust.
A closer look at Snow Lady.
I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the panel inside my card, and punched
a snowflake border into a narrow panel of the lovely blue DP. It has VERY subtle
snowflakes and checks, and is the most beautiful quality. Sadly, I only bought one
12x12 sheet about 4 years ago at a clearance sale in a hall, and have procrastinated
about using it. (Yes, I have confessed to you all that I am a hopeless paper addict!).
The 3 tiny snowflakes are the negatives from the punched border...I keep all of these
(in many colours), in a tiny, clear container.
I downloaded this fabulous font from a freebie site when I bought my first
computer, many years ago, and promptly forgot all about it until I bought
a new computer recently. I am sorry, but I cannot remember the source.
Side-on view of my card.

I hope none of you are like me, starting to panic that you will not have your Christmas cards finished in time. My New Year's resolution each year is to have them all ready by the beginning of November...BUT, guess what??? Oh dear, I can always try next year.
