and Siobhan & Oscar (yep - she's the cheeky one!)
And finally our little AmeliaSharon xx
I think the expression on that Whimsy deer's face is priceless! I bet there are loads of you that remember trying to catch snowflakes on your tongue when you were little! Just like the deer. I just had to team the image up with the lovely sentiment (again, this was gifted to me by Paula).
The background was made by stamping a Papermania poinsettia stamp in red ink and a Hobby Art Ltd Snowflake Cluster stamp in green ink. I've also used marshmallow glimmer mist on this for a delicate shimmer in electric light, but it doesn't show up too well in daylight. I didn't want something that was too overpowering because the snowman is covered in glamour dust.
The main image is from my new Whimsy Christmas set. Isn't the snowman cute!! I was tempted to make the little bird into a bluebird but thought a robin was more fitting for the Christmas theme. They are coloured using ProMarkers. The sentiment stamp is a woodware one.
Thanks for looking,
Brrrrr! Chilly looking but a fab picture.
The challenge colours are BLUE, SILVER and WHITE and the optional extra is WINTER and GLITTER.Yep - perfect for crossing off another Christmas card on the list. I really enjoyed having a try at making an easel card. I think there are instructions for how to make these over at splitcoast stampers - but I just dived in and made one without instructions. I was pretty pleased with myself when it turned out looking like this!
The DT have made some amazing items with these colours. I hope you'll find time to pop round to their blogs and leave them a little comment. We all love it when that happens and the DTs always work so hard on creating something inspirational for the challenges.
We have 5 prizes from Handy Hippo for the winners of this challenge. I hope you'll all find time to enter.
Thanks for looking.

I was deeply distressed when I heard Jaimie's story and immediately said 'Yes' when I was asked to join this hop. I really hope that my card, along with all the other cards she will receive, brings some comfort to a deeply traumatised little girl who needs her faith in humanity restoring.
My card for Jaimie uses her favourite colours of hot pink and black. I know she's not a 'girly girl' and that she enjoys outdoor sports, but I lacked a sporty stamp. I chose this stamp to symbolise the gifts of love and hope that she will be receiving from all over the world.
On the inside is a simple heart for spreading the love.
