Well folks it's Thursday again and time for a new challenge at Moving Along with the Times. This week Shell has chosen the theme of Christmas and we have Crafty Sentiments sponsoring us this week. The DT got some lovely Christmas digi images to play with, pop along to the main blog and take a look at their fab creations. I used the snowman couple.
I decided to try my hand at an easel card as I haven't done one for a long time and also keep to my favourite style - vintage. The backing papers are from Crafty Sentiments but I did change the colours a bit by using Photoshop Elements.
The frame is a Spellbinders die and edged with picket fence distress crackle paint to make it look a bit like snow, the image was edge stamped using a TH snowflake stamp. I used DIs to colour the image and added some glitter. The ticket I purchased from Sentiments 4 You and the other bits I found in my collection of Christmas papers and bits and pieces. I have used stickles round the DPs and the ticket.
As I visit other blogs it seems many of you are well on your way to getting your Christmas cards finished, I have only done 3 - still got a long way to go.
Enjoy your Thursday and hopefully some crafting somewhere during the day. I hope to later on.
Take care - luv Brenda xxxx
