I have recently joined several crafty groups on Facebook. What a wealth of information and inspiration I have found there! Crafters are such friendly people and very supportive.
I've discovered a few different challenge blogs and am also taking part in a card swap for the first time - Im so excited! I will blog my card when its finished and been received by my swap partner - dont want to spoil the surprise (or horror with my dodgy cardmaking!)
I discovered a blog http://craftcreatoins.blogspot.co.uk/p/winter-challenge.html?spref=fb where the challenge this fortnight was right up my street - Winter.
I love wintertime - I start getting excited when I see coats, scarves and boots appearing in the shops and the lead up to Christmas is my favourite time of year. This year will be extra special as it will be my darling wee boys first christmas! Oh I cant wait.
Here is the card I am going to enter in the challenge
I used a flourish die to finish off to represent the cold winter wind again in holographic card and to finish - you guessed it some card candi!
I'm happy with my card - its hard to go wrong when you work with such lovely pieces - the stamp and snowflake papers were just wonderful to work with and I'm pleased to say all out of my stash not a single new thing bought for this card!
