Snowflakes in September


Another challenge that will help me get ready for the not so far away festivities. This time I have used one of my favourite festive stamps, Snowy, by Penny Black. I have quite a few images all water coloured and good to go, so you can look forward to seeing Snowy on lots of cards over the next couple of months!

I am trying my luck in the Allsorts challenge where the theme is 'Snowflakes in September'. The paper is 'Santa's on his way....' by Forever Friends. I used a snowflake punch and a CB die for the snowflakes and finished them off with buttons.

It is a Holiday Monday weekend here so I have an extra day off work. I plan to clear out the garage so that I can get the car in over the winter months but if you come here and see more cards then you know the car will be out in the cold this winter!
