Thursday, and another Christmas card

Morning!!  I'm still going on the Christmas cards, but need to make a birthday card tonight to hopefully will have something different to share tomorrow!!

I'll make this short and sweet... but you know my tendancy to waffle!!

I'm on a stash diet (boo!!) so have been rifling through all my bits and bobs and found this paper lurking in one of the many bags I have containing left overs from my fortnightly scrapbooking class at Scrapbook Sisters, and thought it perfect as I know you wouldn't see much of the paper anyway, so it didn't matter that it isn't actually a from a Christmas range.

 I've been playing with the MS snowflake around the page punches again, snowflakes are a mix of die cuts, punches and the offcuts from the MS punch.  I gave the lot a generous coating of glamour dust and stuck a red gem to the centre.  The sentiment is one from Lakeland that I bought a couple of years ago

I love this Lily of the Vally image, stamped on Neenah, coloured with copics, and put glossy accents on her boots.  After seeing Fluffy Stuff used by both Lisa and Kerry I went on a hunt to find mine as I haven't used it in ages, I thought it might have gone off so after I had located my heat gun and wiped the dust off it ;-) tested it.  Then I wondered what would happen if I sprinkled glamour dust onto the unpuffed fuffy stuff, and whatdayaknow it worked and I didn't burn the house down, and I had sparkly fuffy stuff!!  Whoo hoo!!

How fab is that!!  I can see I'm going to be doing that again!!

Hope you like it as much as I do :-)

Thanks for stopping by

Sue xx
