Feelin' blue

Had my grandson on a sleepover last night, he usually manages to sleep in his own bed for half the night but then creeps in with me, well I have to fetch him as he'll wake everyone else up, this morning at 7.00am I had a little voice in my hear saying wake up Nana, and as you can guess thats all the sleep you're going to get as hes bouncing around and I'm shuffling half a sleep about, he did get my coat of my bed for the way my coat is my dressing gown, thats what he calls it..........
All my Christmas cards seem to be blue this year and I don't know why as its not a colour scheme that I usually do, perhaps is all this snow we're having as I'm loving all things snowflakes at the moment, brrr.......
hope you are all keeping warm, we've still not had much of the white stuff just a sprinkling, so onto todays card,last weeks compendium of curiosities challenge was double distressing, and I just had to use TH stamp for the main image, colours used are Broken China and Chipped Sapphire, the snowflake dies are by Marianne.

Other challenges are

Compendium of Curiosities.......double distress.
Cute card colour theme.
Tuesday Taggers.....Jolly old St. Nick.
Crafty Pad.....Snowflakes.
Lots to do.......Embossing either heat or dry.
Alphabet Challenge......E is for Embossing.
The Stamp Man......Anything by Tim, Xmas theme.

Hi, sweet Daniele! Sounds like you're having a fun (if sleep deprived!) time with your little grandson!

I love blue Christmas cards, especially when they're as gorgeous as this one! You did a fabulous job on the double distress, and the multi-dimensional snowflakes look amazing against that background. The little Santa collage stamp is perfect, and the Tissue Tape gives such a cool contrast.

I hope you're having a great December so far, and I'll look forward to seeing what you do for Challenge 24!
