Time for Frosty

Hi girls. It's good to have you here at my blog. Thank you so much for calling in.
I have felt lately that reading back my blog posts over the last few weeks I am sounding a bit of a disaster area with this persistent kidney infection. Well just for a change I have broken the post on one of my dental crowns and had to visit the dentist yesterday and am going back today to finish the treatment. I was absolutely shattered when I got home yesterday so I'm not looking forward to today. Thankfully with William retired I have my trusty sidekick to help.
Enough of that - on to the card for today. I don't think it's one of my best but I let you judge. I am not entering it in to any challenges.
I have used Magnolia's "Frosty the Snowman". The background mounting and sky is Bazzil and I have mounted an overlay made with a Martha Stewart Round the Page Punch called "Flower Bunches". The trees and sledgers have been drawn in freehand and any colouring is done with my Copics. I have used a Marrianne Designs "Poinsettia" die to make the flower and the pearls are from my stash. I have used some glitter and stickles to add a bit of sparkle.
I am afraid I missed the best of the light yesterday and the photo is not the best I've ever taken.
I hope you like this and if you have a minute to spare I would love it if you left a comment for me to tell me what you think. I value each and every contribution.
Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,

  27. OMG, Fiona! I'm almost embarrassed to show my face here, I've been gone soo long. And you've been such a faithful commenter on mine! this is sooo adorable and I'm happy to see that punch used for a Christmas card. I just bought it and was wondering if it was not the best purchase considering the season but it TOTALLY WORKS! Yea! Thanks for the inspiration. This card is adorable. Now I've got some catching up to do! xxD

  28. Hi Fiona

  29. Sorry to hear about your crown and the persistent kidney infection - hope you are out of the wars soon.
    what a fab idea to use a doily effect for a christmas scene, it sets it off beautifully. even better that you created it yourself, great effect.

  30. What a wonderful card Fiona.

    Hugs Riet.x
