Christmas Furry Things

Sorry I haven't been posting much over the last couple of weeks but things have been a little bit hectic......... our friends Bob & Val invited us up to Southwold in Suffolk to spend a few days with them which was brilliant, then we've been busy decorating and installing new furniture in one of our bedrooms and I've also been doing some more glass work (more of which in a couple of days time).

The challenge over at Die Cut Dreams this week is Christmas Furry Things and it's being sponsored by Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps who have some gorgeous images.  I have decided to use their lovely polar bears digital stamp which is so cute.  I printed out the image and used Nesties to mat and layer onto silver mirri.  I started off by using flock powder but it didn't look very "furry" so then went on to use Polar White Flower Soft which was much better.  I then inked the top of the card to simulate a night sky and used Glamour Dust for the snow.  Last week at the craft show in Exeter I bought some Go Kreate dies (XL Frames Frilly #2) which are much larger than the equivalent Nesties.  I used the medium die to cut a 5"x7" card blank which was covered with a sheet of Papermania Contemporary Christmas paper.  A dotty ribbon across the top of the card (tent folded) and a fabric flower were added.  The sentiment is from a free stamp set given away with Creativity magazine and I added a tab of the same ribbon at the side of the card along with some blue gems.

Thanks for stopping by.
