Season Greetings.....

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas.........now that will all get you humming along, my trees are up I spent most of Monday putting up the main one and decorating the rest of the room, this year I decided to sprinkle fake snow over the tree and underneath, Ethan came into the house this morning took one look at the tree and started scooping the snow up sprinkling it every where, he was so wired before going to school with excitement.......feel sorry for his teacher. I also have a remote control to switch the lights on and off and of course thats another gadget he wants to play with.

Thought I would share with you a card that I have had on my desk for the best part of a week playing around with, started off cutting out the window arches, then I found an image that I had done ages ago, using a Crafty Individual stamp CI365 Ferns and Butterflies which is stamped on a background that I made using Treasure Gold guilding pastes, I did add glitter to parts of it and textured snow to the ground, then I cut in half and mounted behind the two windows, the trees are Marianne dies. The snowflake is a Joy die, this I embossed in white twinkle Wow powder.
Don't forget that you can still enter the challenge at Crafty Individuals, the theme is make something Festive.
