Don't you DARE do anything on my head!

Snigger, sorry but that's exactly what I thought the snowman might be thinking right now :)

This card is for Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge 73 where the theme this week is 'a touch of the blues' and also for my buddy Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge, that runs for a week from the 25th of each month. I know, I know - who wants to make Christmas cards in this heat - but, I promise, both challenges are fun with prizes too and you'll be so much happier when Christmas begins to loom. Every card made now is one less to think about later on in the year:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- Kan Ban 'Crystal Star' backing card

- a snippet of dark blue glittered card behind the image

- pryramage snowman by GorJuss

- snowflake die cut with a Marianne die, glittered with Glamour Dust and then a diamante in the centre

- sentiment also from the GorJuss pyramage pack with a couple of little diamantes

- sparkly edged ribbon from the ribbon box - bought originally from Hobbycraft

Have a nice day, the weekend looms so let's hope this lovely weather lasts :) Whoop, whoop - if I'm quick I might be first to link into Rudolph Day over at Sarn's!!

Heh speedy, great card, really like the layered effect on the image. Good luck with the challenges :)

Hope your bum isn't too soggy from sitting in the fridge? Be careful you don't get frostbite, that wouldn't be good ;)

Have a great Friday xx

Hmmn! Not sure quite what to say there Di, except I like the card. Love the technique you have used even if I cannot for the life of me remember it's name!! Too hot to think I think!!

Kathleen said...

Fabulous card, love the snowman and love the pryramage, and not to mention your thoughts!!
Funny thing is we have had the Grandsons from Wednesday night till after tea tomorrow and while bird watching through my craftroom window Ethan said to me that he was not that keen on birds any more as while at Filey he had one bird pooh on his head and then another on his hooded top, he wasn't too happy when I broke into fits of giggles.

Hehehe from the title I expected one of your fabulous Tuesday Tales. Lovely card, Di. Brilliant job. All my pryramage efforts have ended in the trash.
