Snowman for Cute Daisy May

Over on Cute Daisy May this week we were asked to use texture. I used the quickest and easiest option, my cuttlebug and the snow folder. I ran the snowman through the machine after cutting him out and colouring him, and highlighted the 'snow' on his clothes with a white pen

this photo gives you a good look at the snow effect....................
I used my favourite making memories letter stickers for the sentiment. The papers are by mambi

There is a brand new photo of Kiki and Monty on my sidebar, look how that little baby boy is growing - he has hair now! I am going to see such a difference in the two babies when I get home.
I have been working all weekend on a magazine commission - would you believe I have been making Easter cards? Bizzare, no wonder I am so behind with my christmas stuff, I think it's April :) I have just sent an online order for photo printing to walmart for 122 photos, that have to be, somehow, turned into scrapbooks, mini albums and tag books before Christmas day, stupidly I paid extra for one hour printing, so if I want to pop up in my jammies they will be ready. Why did I do that when there isn't the slightest chance I will have time to do anything with them for at least a week? Search me.

  2. You are so funny Enfys. Love your little snowman, but the little ones (KiKI and Monty) are really cute. I have to agree, they are going to be so big when you get home.

  14. Enfys, I LOVE the snowy effect! Great card, girl! OMG, look how big that little guy has gotten! What a cutie pie! Your grandchildren are beautiful. Kiki looks like she has gone from a toddler to a little lady overnight. Don't you hate that?! Maybe Walmart might want to think about putting a drive-thru pick up in.... we'd all be there in our jammies!

  23. And the answer is...because you needed them now when you ordered them! lol I put some in for developing a couple of weeks ago, and we thought they were going to be really expensive so waited till this week to get them... They were all of $20.00... silly me. I got my package today!!!!!Thank you sooooo much!!!! All of the lovely card candy! I'll never have to buy another brad! lol And the teddy stamp...I've wanted one for ever so long. I love the little purses. Did you make them, or buy them like that? I love it all... so I'm sending this message and then going to the lazy-boy and putting my feet up with my new mag! Thanks so much. I'll bet the UK winner is gonna be just as excited whe she gets hers.
    Oh yeah, I love todays cards, and those two babies are going to be so big when you get home. And Kiki is getting so grown up! She looks like she loves being a big sister!
    Well I'm off to browse my mag. Thanks again En, you're becoming such a good friend. I hope I can return the favor soon.
