It has been a few weeks since I have done a Festive Friday challenge … due to holidays / work etc. But … the colour challenge this week was irresistible so I just had to play along! Isn’t this a yummy combo!? My inspiration was the snowflakes on a few of the DT sample cards! Nicole is trying to build this challenge … so please will you consider playing along … and getting a start on your Christmas Cards?
I decided to pull out my BRAND NEW Verve stamp set “Glad Tidings” that has some matching dies for the label and the snowflakes! I have been dying to use these for a few weeks! These goodies were a 50th b’day gift from my dear blog friend Lee-Anne. I was so touched when I received an email from Verve to say I had a credit waiting from Lee-Anne! What a sweet surprise! And … the perfect gift! Thank you so much Lee-Anne. You are such a generous and wonderful friend! I managed to get another Christmas ornament set, too … so I will show you that one for another of the Festive Friday challenges!
I am not sure that a CASE is acceptable for a challenge ??? … but I need to acknowledge the inspiration from Michelle Woerner from the Verve Gallery. So perhaps that disqualifies me … but even so … I really had fun using my new goodies! I did change the colours … add a snowflake die to the label … but it is pretty similar to the original! Thanks Nicole for a great combo! Loved this one! Well … it is nice to have the kids home this week (school / uni break) … so I had better go and pay them some attention!! 😉
