Snowy blues .... for several challenges

A card that seems somewhat appropriate given all the snow everywhere today.  My cats have been sitting at the window mesmerized with the snowflakes floating down.




Once again I have chosen a lovely Lili of the Valley stamp for this card.  Ths one is called Skating Along.  I have coloured with Copics, with copious amounts of glitter on the furry parts of her clothings, and added some silvery glass shards to the ice.  The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley from one of their newly released sets.  The papers are from a Bearly Mine Christmas set.  Edge punch is Martha Stewart as are the snowflakes.  The flowers are, as ever, from Wild Orchid Crafts.



I am entering this for the following challenges. 
Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate it that you take the time to read my blog and leave a comment.

  12. Hi Val
    Sorry not around much - frequent visits to the hospital as well as work have prevented me from keeping in touch with my blogging friends. I haven't forgotten you wanted my rough workings for my 4 fold card and if you email me (addy on my sidebar) I will get it back to you.
    I have had a look through all the wonderful things you have been making - such gorgeous creations. I am so looking forward to having more time to be back in the swing of things.
    Take care.
    luv {brenda} xox
