Choir of Snowmen

I've always loved this Flaky Friends stamp set from Stampin' Up. I thought they looked like a choir of snowmen -- wouldn't you like them to come caroling round your door at Christmastime?!

The background of the card is created with a Cuttlebug musical embossing folder. This particular embossed image is striking, but it is even more so when using a dark purple cardstock with metallic dusky pink and silver inks as an accent.

To tie in the choir of snowmen with the musical background, I found the perfect sentiment stamp from another Stampin' Up set, Peace to the World.

Mufti Day Card

Dear son was asked to bring in a gift for his Mufti Day contribution. These items will then be sold at the City of London Freemen's craft fayre on 6 December (in Ashtead, Surrey). I whipped out a bunch of Christmas cards for his gift . . . they are specifically for his House Whittington stall, so they had to be in the House colour of blue! That works when making ice cold blue cards for winter.
