return of the snow? - Belles and Whistles challenge let it snow+Sir Stampalot challenge-A winters tale+7 kids college fund+Friday Sketchers challenge

Good morning everyone, who has the snow back then?...we had a teeny tiny bit yesterday but it melted as soon as it landed...I haven't got a new guillotine yet and have had to go back to the trusty steel ruler and knife, I had forgotten how long it take cutting like this compared to my gorgeous guillotine boo hoo...in answer to Lorraines question yesterday yes its just me these things happen too, I just lurch from one thing to the next lol...my card for today is for the Belles and Whistles challenge, 7 Kids college fund and Sir Stampalot challenges too, the sketch is from Friday Sketchers...this gorgeous little sweetie is from the Snowbabies range, did you know that 10% of the price of these stamps goes to Breast Cancer research....this gorgeous little one is called Snowball Snowbaby and you can get her either at Belles and Whistles or Nikki has them in at Bunny Zoe's here...I coloured her with Distress inks and glittered her snowball, the stunning papers are from Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly range and is called Silly Chilly, lush isn't it...I finished with some fantastic ruffled ribbon, boy was this hard to tie into a bow and snowflake charms...I will add the photo of my guillotines later, keep warm everyone and if your lucky enough to live somewhere warm...enjoy

I live in Napier.New Zealand and it is summertime with temps in the 30'C but yesterday we had a cold snap... a cold southerly blew up the island...... back into sweatshirts. With the sudden change we thought it was winter again....To your card, it is gorgeous and that ribbon is absolutely beautiful.

Annika said...

Oh, so darn cute! Such a lush ribbon that pink!! I really would love some colouring lessons from you - how on Earth do you always achieve such seamless blending and subtle glow??!!
Bummer about the guillotine...I have the spare one but no use to you obviously :(
Sorry I've been out of loop for so long, it's been more a hospital than a house here for almost a month!

Hi Mina,
This is gorgeous. I love that design paper and the colours are beautiful. Fabulous ribbon and bow and the image is so sweet.
The Kinross micro climate has given us 7 inches of snow over the last two nights. On top of the 12 inches we had left from the last time it's not clever.
Hugs,

Ohhhhhhhhh Mina, I can't believe how absolutely GORGEOUS you've made this little snowbaby. She sure is a cutie, and you have her in pinks and grays, and she's just breath taking. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what you did with her, I just may have to try those colors myself. Who would have thought? LOL Thanks so much for joining us for the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge this week.
Hugs,

What a lovely winter card - love the colored image, the sparkly snowball and those papers (never seen that line before). And I think these things happen only to you because the gremlins love you more than your hubby, lol. Now if only they will just behave...
