This week the two challenge sites have joined forces to have a blog hop with candy strewn along the way....the challenge is called holiday fun so it can either be Christmas, thanks giving, Easter etc, you get the idea, so my entry is a Christmas card using masking for the background that I made using the set of Marianne snowflake dyes and then distressed with stormy Sky, the atc stamp is from Tim Holtz as if you didn't know that, to add a little colour to the card I used red and green embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer to highlight parts of the design, the snowflakes were made by using the dye cuts on thin acetate (don't use thick as it won't cut) and then used clear glue and glamour mist .....you still get the appearance of semi-transparent, I then added a diamante to the centres just in case there wasn't enough bling.....lol, the background of the card was distressed with black soot and silver embossing.
Hi my name is Daniele and I am a mother of two, Ethan is my first grandson and keeps me on my toes and now we have another Grandson Zachary who is a real sweetie. I am a store manager at Thorntons and no I don't eat chocs all day however we do try all the new ones its a hard job but someone has to do it.
Obviously card making and scrapbooking I only got into this after the birth of my grandson . Gardening, although this usually gets done by hubby now as I have too many pics to scrap,knitting and eating chocolate. My other passion is holidaying in Italy......such a beautiful country to visit. I am part of the DT for Crafty individuals,and was previously part of the design team for Sketch n Stash, Ooh la La and Kraftyhands.
