Stamping for the Weekend

This post comes to you magic of Mr Blogger......I hope ! I am away today paying a surprise visit to a blogging friend.......I can't tell you who yet, otherwise there won't be any surprise if they read this will there. But I will let you in on the secret tomorrow.

I also need to tell you all that there is a brand new Stamp Addicts Christmas programme coming up on Friday 18th at 11am. I shall share some sample cards with you later in the week and tell you more, but this card does use one of the stamps I used to create samples for the show.

My card is for this weeks Stamping for the Weekend challenge and boy did I struggle with it, don't get me wrong, it's a great sketch...... I just can't do busy and with all those layers I panicked I can tell you. But I have a finished card and I sort of like it, perhaps it will grow on me.

My main image is Judikins 2084H stamped with black memento ink and coloured with Promarkers and cut out on the Bug using Nesties. DP is My Minds Eye and the swirl was cut on Cricut Storybook, inked with brilliance lime and embossed with detail clear. The border is punched with Martha Stewart embossed snowflake and the tiny snowflakes are punched. The greeting is a Hero clear set for which I have lost the code.

Hi Brenda, Gorgeous card! I love the colours and the gorgeous snowman. I also struggled at first with this sketch because I don't usually have so many layers but really like the finished result.

Hope you have a great day visiting your blogging friend.

Hi Brenda. I hope you've had a lovely day with your friend. Your card is lovely, The layers are great and what a jolly snowman. It's great to be made to do something out of your comfort zone isn't it, the end results are usually very satisfying, even if they do take awhile to grow on you.
