So to my card which turned out more green than blue but hey ho not much I can do about that now. The papers are Lily Bee Christmas Cheer just had a few left. The girls are from The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Scarfs, I used two stamps from the set and because I layer my images, I didn't have to worry about masking them.
Lucky for me I haven't put away my snowflakes die including the Maryanne one, I cut it out in white first then Kraft which I cut out the centre. Instead of messing around with a glue stick I ran my snowflakes in the small Xyron (its handy for words and letters too) facing down so that glue covered the it. I ran a small embossing tool round the edges before taking the protective strip off and then covered it in the glitter. I still get covered in glitter but it not stuck to glue on fingers!
I used the Happy die and stamp set since my daughter whose birthday is the 1st of Feb and she has been complaining it always seems to snow on her birthday (she better not look at the long range weather forcast).
I used the sketch from The Sketchy Challenge and it had this odd bit at the end of one of the mats so I used a Tilted Banner and sentiment cos the space annoyed me. 



There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog ,,,if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out :-)
