Good evening everyone, and welcome to my newest followers. Thank you
for visiting, and I hope you find something of interest while here.
It's Friday once again, and therefore it is time for another challenge at
Winter Wonderland, and the theme this week is 'ANIMAL ANTICS'.
During January and February your creations could be for any occasion,
but for the remainder of the year, you MUST create
something for Christmas.
Our generous sponsor this week is
I love creating Christmas cards, and I had great fun with this one.
This oh, so cute image is by our sponsor, and is coloured
with Promarkers. I have been trying to get my hands on Frantage
for a long time, but here in Australia, it is VERY difficult to find.
However, I remembered a store a few hours drive from here, and found
that they actually stock it...so thank you Tracey, at Pages 2 Scrap.
Another product I purchased from Tracey was a huge jar of Tim Holtz's
Clear Rock Candy glitter. I used heaps of it on my 'snow', but sadly I
could not capture the amazing effect it creates, in my photographs. I
created that pine branch (on the right) by using a Cheery Lynn Fringe
die, after seeing a tutorial by the incredibly talented Pamellia.
Inside my card is decorated to co-ordinate with the front.
