Week 202 One Layer

Week 202 
We have another One layer Challenge for you today.
This time the focus should be
SNOW
Your last chance for those final Christmas Cards should you need them!

Here are our cards to give you a few ideas... not that you will need many!

Here is a little snowman from Dearie Dolls digi images. Simply coloured with Mirage pens and twinkled with a little Glamour Dust.
The font is Love is a many complicated (thing) I presume!


From Clearly Besotted I've used the following products:
Signature Christmas Dies used as a mask
Christmas Sparkle: Tree image to create my snowflakes, which 
are heat embossed in white then inked with Peacock Feathers Distress ink.

The sentiment is from the Little Pudding set and I've hand-drawn 
(yes hand-drawn which was VERY scary)
the strings and bows to my ornaments with a Pilot silver marker
and to finish some turquoise pearls from my stash.

 Not bought any digis for a while, but couldn't resist this Mo Manning set, this is Valerie with pup.  Coloured with Copics and with some Glamour Dust added, the sentiment is a Sheena Douglass stamp
As ever, each of us has a few extra cards on our personal blogs so we'd love you to pop  by and pay us a visit too!

If you're not sure of our rules for one layer cards, do look at the guidelines on our side bar.
