Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and ready for the week ahead.
It was a bit of a shock when I realised while at Ally Pally that I hadn't thought about today's challenge!! I thought that i would be able to do when I got home, as the show finished at 4pm, that soon changed though as there had been an accident on one of the roads which caused huge tailbacks.
So I was sat in the car frantically tryng to find something to challenge you with.
I decided on a TicTacToe, they are so versatile and can be used for so many occasions.
I thought that this particular one would be good for Christmas cards particularly but there are plenty of categories to use for non Christmas cards too.
I might use some of the new things I bought yesterday. So excited to sit and craft.
My card uses categories: Snowflakes/Sparkle or Shine/Punch or Die Cut
I went diagonal for this challenge card.
I used the Brand New Stampin'Up 'Blizzard Thinlit die' to die cut my topper (it die cuts the whole lot in one go!!) Plus you have a pile of different snowflakes as well. I added mounting foam onto the back and placed it onto a Balmy Blue card base, that I had added a piece of double sided tape to and covered with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, which gave the snowflakes sparkle!
I then stamped my sentiment from the stamp set that goes with the die...Beautiful Blizzard.
Beautiful Blizzard Bundle

Ally Pally was lovely, very quiet, we didn't have any trouble getting a table for lunch, there weren't many of us to find seats for though, we weren't short of conversation though. It was lovely catching up with Lynda, Terry and Margaret (who i havent seen since May!
I want to share with you all a gem of a Craft shop, unbelievably good prices, absolutely lovely couple too, they started their craft shop in May this year, well worth supporting ......
'A Crafty Place' is their name, the owner is a lovely lady called Anne.

Lots of love and hugs,
