Pixies Snippets Playground

Last week was so hectic as we looked after our Grandson all week, rather than the normal 2 days we normally do. I did start these cards at the beginning of the week and it took me a week to get them finished too. As the die cuts were cut using scraps and also the stamping was done onto scraps I'm off to join in the fun over in Pixies Snippets Playground. I used an embossing folder from Crafters Companion for the background, which I coloured using distress ink and a blending tool. The stamp and die for the image are from the new collection, Festive Holly, from Heartfelt Creations. coloured with pencils and a bit of snow added to the roof.



 I managed to make two to pop into the box for that special time of year.


I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Christmas Cards All year Round - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes with the option of Die Cuts

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
