MAWTT Challenge 77 - Let it SNOW

Wow another week nearer Christmas and I still have cards to send and presents to buy and wrap. Hopefully I will get there by the 25th!!!!

This week over at MAWTT, the lovely Hazel is hosting and the theme is 'Let it Snow' and I chose this gorgeous image called 'Chester dah Snowman' by Robyn's Fetish to play with. I have already seen the team's work and I have to tell you - you must pop over and have a look at all the different cards and projects, there is some wonderful inspiration for you to look at.

As many of you will know I have been following the 12 Tags of Christmas by Tim Holtz, but didn't have time to make them all myself. So I decided to use some of his techniques in making this card. If you haven't seen how to use a stamp on an embossing folder you really should go take a look. I have used it here to create my background and then I printed Chester out twice, covered him in snowtex and pieced his hat, nose, arms and heart after colouring them with distress inks.

I haven't put a sentiment on yet cos I'm not sure yet who I am going to send this one too. If anyone knows of any challenges I could enter this into I would be grateful if you would let me know. Sadly I just haven't got the time to go looking at the moment. Thankyou so much.

For those of you who know me - just to let you know Mum is still in hospital and is likely to be there quite some time as she is still being fed by a tube, saying that though she has been allowed some pureed food this week. I am having to battle with the hospital to get information and get things moved on. Communication from and with them is a nightmare and I don't just mean to me - but between each team on duty and each department too. I am gathering my evidence now for a formal complaint.

So sorry I am still not visiting you very often, I really miss keeping in touch, but hopefully soon.

Take care - luv {brenda} xoxox
