 Hello everyone,

Traditional or modern, that is the question that our hostess Sarah is asking for this fortnight challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT  and for me, I do not know, but lately I have been going with modern like pale blues and greys and whites on white.. and that is what we have here....Grey and white..

and my Gel plate came into action for texture..

and this was number one sheet, just normal card stock nothing fancy..

and then I slipped in inside a cellophane bag and started to fill her up..

They were all secured..ALL the ends closed after last time!!

and there we have a background.

On the outside the snow mounds went on..

a white tree and derr and my new black gems, perfect for eys.

added the glue and lost his eye!

Popped the tree on..

Found his eye on the end of my finger nail, ha ha ha, 
so the went on..

and then decided to decorate the tree, so more silver sequins.

A silver Merry Christmas die cut sentiment..

Not too thick for posting..


This one you see the background blotches etc..

All the sequins and bubble spread out..
and I was done..

our sponsor this time is 
Amanda Jayne Designs with 2 single digis

So there we go, do come and have a play

and thank you so much for stopping by and
I'll see you tomorrow..

Gorgeous cards and thanks for the laughs, I thought of you having a black eye on the end of your finger nail! Last week I wanted to put a large box of tiny pins into a tin to keep them safe. I picked it up and it was upside down, 200 tiny pins on the floor.... WTF! I swept them up but I keep finding more, even in my slippers. You have to pay for stupidity! Hugs, Valerie
