A Spoon Full of Sugar #77 - Create a Scene


Hi girls glad to see you back to my little blog again. I hope you have all had a great weekend. I had a great day yesterday with the Crafty Sentiments Blog Hop that is still on until Wednesday so if you haven't had a go yet why not start off with my post at the top of my blog. I had a bit of a problem at the beginning of the day since Blogger managed to make the text on my post so small it couldn't be read and it had been posted for 3 hours before I was aware of it. Anyway I managed to fix it and the rest of the day went quite smoothly. I had over 100 hits worldwide but only 39 comments which I thought was a pity - particularly since it was a blog hop - I hope my card wasn't that bad!!!
Anyway back to today's business. I am aware that in the last week or so I have made quite a few cards with shades of blue as the basic colour. Strange, because I prefer pastel shades but I think blue is a Christmassy colour. This card is being entered into the latest Spoon Full of Sugar challenge which asked us to "Create a Scene". I used a Crafty Individuals stamp to create the scene and mounted it into a Nestabilities frame I purchased after a class at Stampaholics in Perth where we created a similar style of card. The backing paper is "Blizzard" by Doodlebug Designs Inc. and I have embossed snowflakes in silver onto this paper. The sentiment is also from Crafty Individuals and the embellishments are all from my stash.
Hugs,
