Good morning everyone I have been bursting to tell you all that the fabulous Summer of Belles and Whistles asked me to be a guest for the Belles and Whistles advent, how fantastic is that as you all know I love Belles and Whistles stamps so this meant a lot to me, are you all enjoying the advent I love them and they always remind me of the excitement my Daughter had every morning, we used to instead of the usual advent make her an Advent goody bag with 24 teeny little presents in and she got to dip into it every morning, the gifts were either something sweet to eat or maybe a girly thing like nail varnish or even a silly little joke gift but no matter how small she loved it so much and although shes 26 now we only stopped doing her Advent when she moved out last year (I know I should have stopped years ago but I couldn't resist)...I got to use this stunning Merry Sledding stamp for my card, isn't she so sweet and pretty and shes wonderful to colour, I used Distress inks for my colouring. I really wanted the image to pop off the page and what better way of showing her then to use just white card for the background, the 'snow' is made with linen card and scored to make it 3d, when I have a bit more time I will do a tutorial to show you how this is done I think its called paper sculpting, I used the same method for the star a little bit of twinkling frost and we have a winter wonderland.
Don't forget to hop on over to Belles and Whistles Advent for a chance to win a yummy prize everyone and have a fantastic day and I hope its not as snowy as this where you are it is here and very very cold too, I think a white Christmas is on the cards here
p.s. I'm entering this for the 7 kids college Fund Winter wonderland challenge and the Cute card Thursday One for the Kids challenge too
