I'd like to wish all my followers and anyone else who spots this post a very Happy Christmas and very good wishes for the New Year.  Thanks you for all your visits and comments, all much appreciated and hopefully I can keep up to date with visiting and commenting in the months to come.

As this card is made entirely from snippets I'm going along to the Playground with it for the latest challenge and this is the bumper Christmas one with several opportunities to enter into the draw for a selection of seasonal prizes.  The lovely and generous Di has written a clear description of how to set about taking part in this event and if you are lucky enough to be chosen by 'Mr Random' you should have something to start you off on making cards for next Christmas.  Well worth popping along to see what is on offer starting with a very pretty card showcasing prize A.

As I said this card is made of snippets of mostly white card apart from the trees and the little deer.  I started with a snippet of white card which I coloured using two shades of blue Distress Oxide; next step was to find a larger snippet of white pearl card from which I cut an oval aperture before embossing with a snowy embossing folder.  The snow slopes were cut from more snippets of white pearl and the deer from a small piece of kraft card.  Most of the trees and the white snowflakes were left from other cards and I managed to use them up here; found a narrow strip of matching green to die cut the words.  I thought it just needed something else and the snippet of baker's twine just did the trick - everything was then assembled and glued together before putting it onto a white 6 x 6 card.


  1. Great job here Val. Looks lovely! Wishing you and yours a wonderful festive season. x

  2. What a beautiful card Val - such a pretty scene and well done on using plenty of snippets. The twine is a lovely finishing touch as well!

    Merry Christmas

  8. This is such a pretty card Val. I have looked back and you've made some lovely cards. I recently bought the sizzix wreath, second showing on Hochanda I had to give in. Looking forward to playing with it in the new year.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas. Barbxx
