Blustery days

The nights are drawing in now and you can feel that nip in air most evenings, showing signs of Mr Winter arriving soon, Yes its time to get all your lovely cosy warm clothes out wardrobe and put the heating on again. Plus I always say its excuse for Hot Chocolate drink and or chocolate bar too. Yum!!

I have been crafting quite a lot of late with design team samples and will be sharing my work on here shortly but in the mean time I will show you card that was designed for Crafters Companion Facebook Challenge - Click here for that challenge.

This month's theme is Christmas or Winter, So I went down the winter route as we don't do Christmas really, we prefer to have lovely meal and couple box-sets to watch then swapping gifts, its  spending the holidays with family which most important of all than needing gifts.

Using the colours from the topper to inspire myself with the right colour theme, Its card that's a little  different to my normal card style, as I am trying to push myself to try new things. 

6 x 5 Card blank - I really love this size for friends and family cards.

Crafters Companion items used are - Topper printed on Crafters Companion Solar white neenah card-stock - Topper Image from Humphrey's Corner Everyday CD ROM and the Boxer board to create the fold to make the card.

Other items used - Lifestyle classic embossing folders - Printed Background strip from DCWV - Sequins from The works - Glitter card both white and blue from Quality save - Inked edges using Colour box chalk inks - Orange/red card from DCWV - Pale blue card from The works - Blue card stock from  Pound world - Mirror card from the The works. 

Topper was cut by using the Silhouette cameo software via print and cut and used my own design frame die to cut a frame around the topper and also created two offsets, plus the swirls were cut on silhouette cameo and purchase through the silhouette store.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today to my crafty world and would love you to leave comment so I know you have enjoyed your visit.

I will be back soon with those samples and some information on some TV shows coming soon.
Bye for now - Keep crafting and smiling.
