Snowball


Having major meltdown with computer apps at the moment, I use Picasa to upload my photos too but despite uninstalling and reinstalling it won't let me. So I had to find the actual programme that came with the PC and having to work out how to crop etc. Then finding out I had to use photoshop who doesn't get on with me that well to add the signature. As you can see I got there in the end but I really don't have time messing about on the PC when I could be doing far nicer things like actually make cards.

Back to my card, this cutie is a sneak peek at some new images not sure when they are going to be available but hopefully it will be soon. Not sure if the image is a boy or girl probably depends on what colours you use.

The papers are Doodlebug and then I got out some favourite dies especially has Mr Mojo is still on holiday somewhere sunny I expect. I used fun foam for the white part of my snowflakes to help them stand out from all the white and a touch of blue to help also.

I used MFT crochet border die for round my stitched oval die image and some glamour dust for the snowball and the Sticklers for my hills of snow.

Today I'm joining Slimming World, having put back nearly all my good work over the last couple of years. I need to get back on the wagon and decided that perhaps I needed a bit more support and the half the family seems to go to Slimming World anyway so that could be helpful too.

Also today it is a year since I lost my Mum but today is the only day I will mention it. I want to remember the good times not the bad. We have put some words in the remembrance book on her birth date so we can remember her on her Birthday and the happy memories we have of her.

  3. Gorgeous card, love the bright colours. I hate having to mess around on the PC too but I use photoshop all the time for my pics and thankfully never had an issue. Good luck with SW. I love the plan but hated the classes, wen twice, got the info and a recipe book and did it myself. Need to get back on it now but it has changed the way I cook and think of food. Thinking of you today and your lovely Mum xx

  10. This is gorgeous Debby and I love the way you have coordinated the red and white spots on the background and on that cute character's hat and scarf. I can see where you get your knitting and crochet skills from and the first anniversary is always the hardest, but you are right to remember all the happy times you had with her. x

  21. Wonderful make. That snow looks very nice and I just love those die-cut snowflakes.

    Seeing your Mum's photo made me think of my grandma and great-grandma who I lost both during last year. Tough times but memories are the ones we cherish.

    Hugs,

    Your card is amazing, Ihad to look twice at the snowball, is it really just glitter? It looks like some sort of flock texture, beautiful make. Jo xx
