It's snowing! At least here on my blog. Have you seen the cool snow I've added? I think it gives a festive feeling to the blog. When the petals fall off from that pink tree in the spring it looks like it's snowing in pink. Horrible news about that tree: someone decided to cut it down! I can't believe it. That tree is one of my fav during spring. It only blooms for a couple of weeks and you need to be fast not to miss it. But now someone has decided to cut it down to make room for some concrete pavement I guess. I'm so mad! Here's a LO I made with a photo showing how it "snows", isn't it beautiful?
Moving on to today's card. Yesterday me and my sweetie celebrated our 11:th anniversary together. We didn't do anything special, just had dinner at home (since I don't dare eating out with my stomach) and went to the movies which we both love to do. I can't believe it's been 11 years!
I made a card for my darling using a bunch of challenges:
Papertake weekly - a great sketch and an opportunity to be a guest designer.
Crafty calendar - winter sparkle. Winter-themed cards and projects, with the added option of sparkle and bling.
The pink elephant - Color me wonderful. Use your fav colouring medium.
Sophisticat - snowflakes and sparkle.
Gingersnap creations - winter wonderland.
Cuttlebug challenge - glitter and bling.
Just magnolia too - make a card for someone special. Doesn't get more special than this :)
Quixotic paperie - use charms.
And finally Simon say stamp also had charms as their theme. The charm I added has a writing on the back that says: made for an angel.
The image is from Magnolia and coloured with promarkers. I coloured them to represent me and my sweetie with haircolour and the colour of our clothes. I added glitter to the girl's coat. I love glitter so that worked great and the boy got blue sweater which is my love's fav colour. I used the wonderful papers from SEI that haveboth glitter and a "reversed" metallic embossing (the metal is etched into the paper rather than raised) I made the snowflake decoration using a tutorial from Bev. Thank you Bev.
Hope you've enjoyed my card. See you soon.
