Let it Snow .......

I don't really mean let is snow, it's a bit early for all that .... it's just the theme for my latest festive make for Merry Monday!!

Happy Friday by the way ...... and Happy Halloween!  Mwahahahaha!  
Or I should say Hop Tu Naa as it's called on the Isle of Man.  Ginny the Witch will be out and about tonight I'm sure!

Anyway ...... on to this weeks Merry Monday challenge.  We have to use snowflakes (check!), dry embossing (check!) and neutral colours (check!)

And here's the result .......

I know ..... it's more of a snowflake, rather than flakes although the embossing folder I used is called Falling Snow so hopefully that counts, and I've stuck to the required neutral colours

I stamped the cute little snowman and the words, using Watering Can Archival ink (grey)

Then I embossed the card using the Falling Snow embossing folder (Cuttlebug).  It needed to go through twice as the card was a little too big, but luckily this is one of those designs that you can easily match up.

I added a touch of sparkle using some fine crystal glitter randomly over the snow flakes .....

And to finish I attached a pretty metal snowflake

All done!!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

If you're out playing Trick or Treat tonight .... stay safe and have fun.
We started early this morning ....... it's dress up day at pre-school and look who we've got, our very own Captain Alex ....... Ahoy there matey!!

There was a lot of Yo Ho.... let's go! this morning before he left on Grandad's pirate ship.  Someone's going to have fun today!

Cheerio until next time
