Final Sneak Peek before the NEC and a Crafters Companion DT Card

 

Morning all, this will be my final sneak peek post before the NEC, also I have yesterdays DT card for this months Challenge on Crafters Companion Challenge which this month is Let It Snow Let it Snow, Let it Snow.

I will try to schedule more Lili of the Valley Cards whilst I am at the NEC, keep your fingers crossed I do it right, me and Technology do not get on to well.  I hope to see lots of you in Birmingham, it is always such a great place to meet up with friends.

Today my sneak is from the fantastic Mice Collection, I love the meeces they are perfect for men's cards as well as for the girls.  The papers are from Nitwits Collections “Buds and Blossoms”, for once I choose the Paper before colouring the image, I know it is much easier to do this but all my good intentions are forgotten when I see the images I just want to get colouring Smile.

I have used quite a a few Dies on this card ,  The roses are made with a Marianne Designs Die, The leaves are a Doo Hickey Die as is the Border, and of course nesties have been used to cut out and frame the image, the Button is also a die by Die-Namics, all these dies are available from Tracy at Dies to Die For.

Now for my Crafters Companion Card, sorry I am late with this, I had to go out yesterday afternoon and forgot to schedule this one.

This gorgeous SWALK Image from the Winter Cheer Collection is Called Snowman.  I have used Spectrum Noirs to colour the image.  The paper on the base of the Rocker card is from the Winter Cheer Collection CD.  Again I have used a couple of die cuts on this card.  The Christmas Trees which I have distressed around the edge with Broken China Distress Ink, also available from Crafters Companion, and the fence are both Doo Hickey Dies.

I hope you can come and join us for this months Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge, Sara has donated a £30 voucher to spend on the website for one lucky person so it is well worth joining in.
