Snow Snow Everywhere!

Afternoon all! Well thought we'd got rid of all the white stuff but it came down again last night and it's a bit on the chilly side today....perfect weather for staying in and crafting. Just had a play today, had some new Kanban card blanks and decided to turn one inside out and make it into an easel card. Bought some bits at the papercraft show last weekend - the memory box die and the decorative corner being two of them. Blinged Pom Pom up with a bit of glamour dust and tried my new Christmas pressie (Ottlite) and it's showing it up quite well....better than it would have been with the light here today.  I've picked out 3 of my favourite colours - pink, brown and cream.

Hope you're all keeping warm wherever you are today x

I'm Back!

Hi All sorry been MIA, had such a busy Christmas and New Year that I'm only just getting back into the swing of things.  All my crafty bits had been packed away and I've been too lazy to get them out again  :-(  but had a couple of cards to make this week so they've been coming out in bits and bobs, soon won't be able to move again for all the boxes and bags!

I'm hoping to get down to Bonus Arena in Hull on Sunday there is a Ross Papercrafting show on down there and as I haven't bought any stash for a while I think it's about time I treated myself to something new!.....My new LOTV stamps I bought in the sale just before Christmas were a present for me! lol

Today's card is for a friend at work for her MIL.  She only just found out she collects Geisha ornaments and pictures so asked if I could do something along those lines.  As I didn't have time to order a stamp I had a look for a digi image and found the one I've used here also the little lanterns bought separately...details at the bottom of the post.  I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and think it's worked out really well.  Hope you like her!

This is the sketch
