Belated Christmas wishes and a Happy New Year to you all x

Well another year over and what a year it has been!! If someone had said to me this time last year that I would be out of work now, I would have thought they were on another planet!! I know that I volunteered for redundancy but when there was 32,000 of us that had to go, it was best to volunteer than be pushed. So now to look forward to 2012!!
This little card is the one that I made for my daughter, my first attempt at a side step card. I thoroughly enjoyed making this one, lots of glue and glitter, cutting and sticking and generally making a mess, lol!! There are still a few challenges left running that I can enter it into, so here we go
Sundays with Crissy - anything goes
ABC Challenge- F is for FROSTY
My Time To Craft - Winter Pals
Crafty Catz - Santa's hat
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
The order of the Opus Gluei - I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Stamps and Fun = Creativity - Snow
Incy Wincy - Winter Wonderland
Bunny Zoe's Craft Challenge - Fancy folds/Shaped Cards

The three snowmen/lady are all High Hopes Stamps which I love
All coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch pens
Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder
Marianne Design - tree die
Memory Box Frosty Die and Frosty Border Die
Lots of Sparkly Crystal Glamour Dust

I hope you like it

Best wishes for a Happy New Year and lots of crafting!!!

Hugs Jo x
