Snow Pals

O-M-G!! what a bad, bad picture for today :-( Sometimes if it is getting a little later in the day i simply do not get enough daylight in the room i have to take my pictures and than it is impossible for me to lift the shadows out with photoshop. I almost did not want to show this card at all on my blog.
I had planned for today a card with a tutorial but than a card magazine from the Netherlands contacted me and asked if i had some Winter cards i could sent in (they have to be there by the 26 of this month) and of course.. :-) that was important for me lol. So last night i worked to finish 2 more cards and they will all shipped this morning. This card was fortunately the perfect themed match for this weeks CCT Challenge to use snowflakes :-) so i did not miss the challenge. iam sorry .. bad pic and no tutorial for today. :-) i hope you forgive me
On the card i used the cute snowman from Magnolia's last year winter collection and the sentiment is from Amuse. This card was part of my Raspberry Ribbon DT work for this month. If you have the kit you also recieved those big plastic snowflakes. This one i covered with paperglaze and covered gernerously with blue Martha Stewart glitter - let dry over night and than layered it on my card. Really simple and it sparkles totally nice.

A little later today when i come back, i will have an other posting up .. i had a few questions regarding my sewing machine, my Magnolia stamp storage and the bins i got at Ikea. Sometimes it is hard for me to describe things in english since it is not my first language, so i think pictures will help more.

Dont forget about the Pretty Pressings blog candy :-) i will draw the winner on Saturday this week.
