Winter Wonderland

If you're reading this then I'm still in bed having a lie in after a long day coming home from hols yesterday. I don't want to miss out on the November's challenge By the Cute and Girly which is for Winter Wonderland and we're not just looking for cards.
This month I use the photos of my daughter trying to get her car off the drive to attempt to get to work when we had all that snow in February. You have to understand we don't get snow like this but the novelty soon wore off. I used cuttlebug snowflakes and used Diamond Dust on them too, although you can't quite see there's a border made with the icicle punch that I've glamour dusted too
Ever since I saw one of these on UKS last year I've wanted to have a go but it was at a time when I was stressing that I'didn't have enough Christmas Cards so it wasn't high on my list. This challenge was well timed.
The papers are October Afternoon, loads of snowflakes and the sentiment is a Woodware one. The numbers are rub ons but they're what I brought from WHS works out much cheaper. If you fancy making one the link for instructions are here.


When is a card not a card when I make it a picture album. I thought this would be great for my MIL, she doesn't get to see Hubby and the Kids that often so I thought it would be nice to send a card with the most up to date photos. I used Basic Grey Wassail papers, oh do I see the zigzag punch from MS again and the Holly is from Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge.
Do join us over on By the Cute and Girly to see all the fabulous creations the DT have done and don't forget we looking for any kinds of craft.

Okay, I have my cuppa, the kid is watching cartoons, I am ready to go on A Scrapjouney Adventure!! What a wonderful bunch of creations, I must have a go at that box, I'll bet the end result will be atrocious, but I still want to try. I love the idea of the photo slots on the fold-out card. Fab stuff!!

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..
