Twinkle twinkle little spots - CLP challenge 30 + Simon says Stamp challenge-Let it snow

Good morning everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to our American cousins...just excuse me a mo please....wwwwwwoooooohhhhhhhoooooooooo the wallpapering is finished, yes yes yes, and as I put the last strip up my Dads says how about we do the Bathroom next lol...I need to do some serious crafting first though and this time I think we will go to B&Q with an open mind and no colour charts...are you all cold enough, bbbbbbrrrrrrr I don't know it always takes us by surprise you would think in Britain we would be used to it by now, but that old Jack Frost always sneaks up on us doesn't he...my card for today is for the CLP challenge which is the fabulous sketch and the Simon says Stamp challenge of Let it snow, I used this amazing digi from Make it Crafty, isn't it just the cutest little house I would love one in my garden wouldn't you, would you believe its called Slimy House but instead of colouring the slime I shaded it and added glitter to look like snow, I think it works ok do you?, this stunning glittery spotty paper is from Making Memories Mistletoe range and is called Big Red Dot glitter, all I needed to finish was a huge red satin ribbon and the sentiment which is cut from lush ribbon I bought at the NEC...I love this little house and will be using a lot more times I think...supermarket with my Dad today and I will be distracting him from B&Q as best I can, have a great day everyone

What a wonderful, festive card, Mina. Love everything about it. Great idea to make the slimy house into a snowy one - works a treat. And I love that big fat red ribbon and the lush papers.
