Penny Black Christmas in July

Well my photo skills haven't improved since I've been away, hopefully I'll find some decent daylight today and take the pic again. edited changed the photo yesterday but Mr Blogger wouldn't post!
Anyway you may think its strange to see a Christmas card but its for the Christmas in July Penny Black Saturday challenge. I'm not really ready yet to make Christmas cards and all my papers are still stored away from my Craftroom but at least all my Penny Black Christmas stamps are still in a draw in my craftroom.
So using plain white card  I draw some wavy lines then cut them out and inked some pale blue ink on the edges to make the snow background.
The blue background I used an Embossing folder sorry not sure whose, I think I brought it at AllyPally in April. I found a snowflake on a Penny Black Clear Christmas set, along with the sentiment. I used a colorbox inkpad in white I had to heat dry it cos it was a pigment ink, next time I plan to experiment with some holographic embossing powder.
I manage to find some Basic Grey christmas tags and I just about managed to cut out three, using my favourite Christmas tree die. All that was need was Snowy the snowman himself and a touch of ribbon.
Do pop over to the challenge block and check out all the fab cards the DT have made.
An update on my Dad who is now home and Mum who has been in respite went back home yesterday since my Dad is really missing her.
I've been shattered and spent a couple of days just chilling the only time I've been to my craftroom was to unpack my craft tote but I hope to change that today and actually make a card!
