Nutcrafters Winter Walk

Good Afternoon everyone.  This weekend is the last full weekend Emily will be at home.  She's off to Uni next weekend (Boo Hoo!!) so we have just been getting a few more bits and pieces that we think she will need.  I am sure we will think of more things before she goes.

My Christmas card for this week is using another of the new stamps from Nutcrafters.  This one is called Winter Walk, isn't she fab!!


I've stamped the 2 images, coloured with Promarkers and cut them out and then matted them onto blue card and then matted that onto blue glitter card.  I've added 3 little pearls for the buttons and added the fake snow from B&M.  The challenge this week at Bah Humbug is to use 'Paper Weaving' so I trimmed down the offcuts of the blue and glitter card, weaved them together and then cut out a cloud shape.

I hope you all popped over to check out the relaunch of Nutcrafters this week and picked up the freebie digi.  Good luck if you have entered the draw for the £10 voucher.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Inspired by a song (Walking in a Winter Wonderland)

Awww, so cute, and your paper weaving on the cloud looks so effective (and yet tricky!) :) Fab snow too!

I'm sure your daughter will pop back home often (even if just to bring some laundry! lol) but you will miss her lots...

.......So do more crafting! :D

Have a good week Debs

I hope everything goes well with the preparations for Emily's departure. Your paper weaving is a lovely original idea for the cloud.

At the risk of telling tales on someone not here to defend herself ... Yes it was Ann's theme idea this week lol!
Good luck to Emily - hope she enjoys this new adventure in her life and wishing her success in her future.
Really sweet card and fantastic way of incorporating weaving. May have to 'borrow' that idea to perk up clouds lol!
Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
