Snowflakes... Father Christmas is on his way...

Hiya all!!

Finally i have a creation to show you since being in my new craft studio, i've been catching up and getting ahead for my Design Team projects but today i was eager to create something just for my blog hehe!! so ok father christmas isn't on his way well... he's gettin ready too making all those toys!! hehe and stamps for us crafters!! 



You may remember just before the big move out i was obsessed with the new sassy stamps that i brought from funky kits, as many of you know i didn't really get much time to play with them, and yeah they've been out ages but i never knew about sassy's till my buddy Shannon told me about them... n now... well i'm hooked!!!

So out came one of my fav sassy stamps 'ms hippie chick' hehe! i actually wanted to do something different with her, as i think she's a summery kinda stamp i wanted to change her to a christmassy stamp, i do love doing this to my stamps at this time of year, you'd be suprised how easy and how many stamps are that versitile you can!

So as you can see from the piccy above i've instead of colouring her flowers in her hair added some snowflake brads and coloured her a blue colour to go with my papers and snowflake feel of todays card!


I also wanted to use one of my 'father christmas' charm snaps that my lovely buddy shannon brought me for my birthday back in july! she's been waiting to see what i do with them... well i'm got a few more ideas coming up! but i love them.... where can i get more!!!!


I'm not a fantastic jewellery maker myself so i've been trying to use up my mountains of gems and beads so i created this dangly charm myself! along with the MOST used die in my studio Snowflake, that was the best £7 i've ever spent on a die and has to be my favourite die, if you look back through last years christmas cards you'll see i love it i use it quite alot! so be prepared to see it more than 50 times between now and december hehe!!

I even got my new space all messy with distress inks on this card too,,, ooo how've i missed my room so much lol!!
