Snowflakes are falling......

Hello everyone,
First, I'd like to extend a big Thank You to my new followers.
I'm honoured that you chose to join me on this crafting journey.

Here we are, half way thru another week and that much closer to the big day!
Can't believe how time is flying by....  better get my cards mailed soon!

Today starts a new challenge at Fab'n'Funky and the theme selected by our lovely Rachel is Snowflakes.  Our wonderful sponsor is StampArt Design by Kathryne and I've used an adorable image called "NEW" Santa Mouse.    My photo does not do this little guy justice...he is too cute for words...and the lens it seems!   As you'll see I've surrounded him with lovely white snowflakes and he seems quite happy about it. 


I so wanted to send this to my granddaughter but unfortunately it's a commissioned card.  Might just have to make another one!   It fits into a 6x6 box..no overhanding bits to contend with.



As alway, coloured with Copics
Red is THE most difficult colour for me...it seems to always want to go over the lines (so don't look too close okay..:)

Lots of MB dies used.
Frostyville Wreath
Frostyville Border
Grand Happy Holidays
Magnificent Pine
 The word snow is a die from Papertrey Ink and the words let it are cut using my QuicKutz Studio Mini dies.
DP - Recollections Blue Christmas from last year
 Fran-tage shabby white embossing enamel

This is a gorgeous card Pat, such an adorable image and I love all of your fabulous die cut details, especially the happy holidays one.
Sorry I haven't visited much lately, I've been rather poorly but am now well on the mend so should be back to normal soon.

I love every detail and element on this card! The colouring of that sweet mouse is fabulous and I love the vibrant red against the soft blues and white. Wonderful use of dies on this design. Everywhere I look there is something that makes me smile. Thanks for joining our Let It Snow challenge this week at Craft Your Passion. I hope we see you again soon.
