Snow Much Fun

FUN!!! I don't think so.
Who chose ACETATE as our Totally Papercrafts challenge this week?
I am going to blame our original host Mel - 'cos her comp is out of action and she can't get me back ;-)

I can't wait to see your cards/projects this week.
And, if you're like me, and don't know what to do with acetate, just give it a try.
I followed this fab shaker card tutorial from Beate Johns at Splitcoaststampers. You don't even need to rush out and buy crafting acetate - I used a piece of old packaging.

Our sponsor this week is Meljen and the lucky winner will get to choose 4 of her fabulous images. I used her cute snowman - normally it's sharper than this, but my printer is just about to die and is only printing out in pale purple!!

Challenges - 
Meljen - Use a ribbon. (I know it's just a little piece of ribbon, but hope it qualifies! )
Wild Rose Studios - Christmas Card/Creation and a Blog Hop.

Supplies -
Meljen's Snowman digi image, coloured with Copics and Stickles.
The 'snow' in the shaker is Diamond Dust.
DP - Hot off the Press, Forever Christmas
North Pole stamp was a magazine freebie.
Buttons from my stash



Wow Caroline, what a fabulous card, and well done for recycling the acetate packaging. Love the colouring and the glittery "snow".
