Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and have had a lovely weekend, we were blessed with some lovely weather, Sunday was lovely and warm too, you can really feel the difference as it turns late afternoon now though can't you, as soon as that sun drops the temperature drops quite fast.
We even laid the fire in ready to go on Saturday evening but it didn't get that cold, so its all ready to go when we do need it. We were looking at the price of getting a bulk drop of Logs but goodness me we shocked, prices were upwards of £350 !! It seems to be the popular thing to sell these days, as you see 'kiln dried logs' advertised everywhere, probably since Log Burners became the 'in' thing.
I wouldn't mind the cost if we had a Back Boiler or something, so that the cost was offset by heating the house or water but it just goes up the chimney!!
On to todays challenge, I decided to go with what seems to be your Favourite Challenge, the TicTacToe, I have to say I think that they make a great challenge as they are so versatile.
I tried to choose one with plenty of variety for Christmas and All-Occasion cards alike, you can class Christmas as a 'Celebration' so thats the festive link, plus the Gold or Silver, then just choose 1 other like I did, I like the fact that it has 'floral' too, as that can mean anything from Poppy to Poinsettia.
I hope you enjoy this challenge and I can't wait to see your cards.
My card uses Categories: Celebrate/Silver/Fancy Fold
I made an Easel card using the Beautiful Blizzard Die to create the main focus of the Easel Card, I die cut it in Whisper White and Coastal Cabana and then I cut the snowflakes again with white card covered with double sided adhesive, I then 'painstakingly' picked every one out, peeled off top of double sided adhesive and dipped it into Fine Glitter and then popped the white snowflakes back into the Coastal Cabana Frame, just like a Jigsaw Puzzle (although I didn't think it was fun at 11pm last night)! I used both some silver card and some Glitter Gems to pop into the centres of the snowflakes, I die cut the 'Merry Christmas' from 'Merry Christmas' Thinlets, 3 times to create depth and dimension, the top layer was covered with double sided adhesive too, so I dipped that into the Dazzling Diamonds glitter too.
I made this card to combine two challenges, Our TicTacToe and my 'Stampin For All' Design Team Challenge, which was to make a card using only dies!
Luckily this card fits both categories.
I will be in my craft room today as I have a lot of things to make, including a Pocker Letter for a Swap with Danielle and my Swaps for our Onstage Event. So I need to concentrate and get motivated.
Oh before I go I must tell you that I did a Tutorial for Fridays Winter Woods Scene card, so I will leave the link below for you all to go and see how I made the card.....
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs to all,
