Crafty Cardmakers 35 White and a Splash.

Hello everyone I hope you are all well and not up to your ears in snow. Up here in NE Scotland it has been very snowy. It started on Wednesday and seems to have just kept on snowing. We were brave and went away on Saturday afternoon to visit my daughter and family in Crieff in Perthshire. They have not had nearly as much snow as us. I'm writing this on Saturday evening so things may have changed drastically by Monday lol. The snow wouldn't matter so much to us as the main roads are ok just the back roads where we live are not too good. But we have the pups with us as no-one wanted to look after 2 ten week old puppies. Well my younger daughter had to work and I thought it was a lot to ask my son. They are pretty smart and usually good but accidents do happen!

I hope you enjoyed our last challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and thanks to everyone who joined us. I enjoyed visiting your blogs. Last week's challenge is still open for another week so you still have time to enter if you want.

This week we would like to see white with a splash of colour. As I'm even more short of time just now here's the quick card I made.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV quick squares cut out with a circle nestie.
Sentiment :- Hero Arts.
Card Candy :- Craftwork cards.
Martha Stewart punch, other punch, glitter, 2 Cuttlebug embossing folders.
Promarker on snowflakes.

Hope you like it. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and I may make some more of them. I love these cute squares they're great for making a quick card and as you can see you don't have to leave them as squares. It's also easy to personalise them with a touch of glitter.

I'm entering the following challenges :-
A Spoon Full of Sugar :- Anything Goes.
Simon Says Stamp :- Let it Snow.
Crafty Creations :- Christmas is coming.
Fussy and Fancy :- no red or green.
Pile it On :- Feather n' Fur.
One Stitch at a Time :- Bling it Up.

I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you come up with for this challenge. Please pop over to Crafty Cardmakers to see what my teamies have made to inspire you. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. If you have time to leave me a comment I'd love to hear what you think and I'm sure my teamies would love to hear from you too.

Thanks for looking.
