Busy, Busy, Busy!

Hello bloggers!

Sorry I haven't been around this weekend - was meaning to post, but life ran away with me!  Helped out Lizy with a market on Saturday, which was fun :) And then yesterday, I did a bit of shopping - or tried to, to get the last bits for my tree.  You wouldn't believe how difficult it was to find silver tinsel and a silver tree topper!!!  Still haven't got a tree topper, but Jamie's mum has been given a purple star, so we're going to try that.

Lizy and Keiran came around yesterday evening to help decorate my tree - as Jamie is a little Bah Humbug - sorry, sorry, as he puts it, he's indifferent to Christmas, not Bah Humbug.  Yeah, whatever, Bah Humbug!! ;)  So I put on a Christmas DVD and did a buffet tea, whilst we decorated.  Thanks you two, I love my new tree!  It's our first Christmas tree in our own place, so it means a lot to me :)  Here's a photo of it.....

OK, enough about my tree and my busy weekend, onto the card!  I have made my first ever white on white card this weekend.  And I am rather pleased with it :)

The image is Pollycraft - Luna Bitterfrost; Frosty and again I have used promakers to colour it in.  I have added some glitter too :)  The embossing folders are Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots and Crafts Too for the greetings one - but not sure of the "official" name.  Have added glitter around the edge of the nesties too.  What do you think?

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

- TotallyPaperCrafts - Let it Snow
- Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Christmas Fun
- Papertake Weekly - Sketch
- Crafting for All Seasons - White on White
and finally
- I Love ProMarkers - Snowmen & Snowflakes

Thanks for looking, and welcome to my two new followers!  (Lizy and Jen don't count, as I know them! :P)

See you tomorrow! xxx
