Challenge Time

 Time does seem to fly and it is time to visit Pixie's Crafty Workshop for the Snippets challenge.  I have another Christmas card this time because apart from the base card the whole thing was assembled from card and paper from my snippets boxes.  Decided to use a window die which was cut from some white pearl card so I searched for some scraps of design paper which could be wallpaper and carpet with a narrow strip of red for the skirting board..  The window was backed with a snippet of scenic paper for the snowy outside view.  A black cat was die cut to sit on the window sill and then more snippets were used for the tree, its decorations and the parcels.  As usual there is a lovely prize for the lucky person whose name is chosen from 'the random hat' so do pop along to the Playground to see the great card made using a super die which looks as if it could be used for lots of card ideas.

Window - die from Memory Box
Cat - came as a free gift when I purchased the window die

  3. Great design, Val. I love how you've created a cosy room, with the view out of the window. xx

  4. Hi Val

    Great use of your window die .. .. love the scene it contains! Very clever.

    Love how you mix so many different dies together to create your scenes.

    Hope you had a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  5. I just love this, it’s so inventive, using alll those different elements to make a fabulous scene. I especially love how you used the paper scene behind the window. As you know I’ve been playing with doors and fireplaces, but I now need to make a giant card to include a window! Thanks for the inspiration and your visits Val xxx

  6. Cool... that's such a fun card, I love the little black cat sat being nosey at the sweet winter scene outside. Your card makes me smile and that in my book is a winner :) x

  7. What a gorgeous card Val - I love the sweet scene you created with all those snippets!
