Snowy Mountains and Skies for CCC

Good morning.  I am back on schedule with my card for our little club.  It is due on Sunday but as usual I am posting a day early because I have a DT post due then - unlike last time when I was a week late!  For shame!

Kate is our lovely host this time and wants to see snowy mountains and skies. I have managed to make two cards so if I can keep this up my stock will soon grow.  But it's early days so I won't count my chickens just yet!

My Cards

7 x 5" white base card
blue card - Lime Tree Crafts
Falling Snow e/f - Sue Wilson
Frosty Border die - Memory Box
word die - Britannia Dies
image - from  Greeting Card Factory Deluxe
gems from stash


6" square base card
image - in my image folder for years!
copper cardstock - old stash
backing paper - LOTV (disc)
pierced banner die - Sue Wilson
sentiment - computer generated

I added lots of glitter - it's for Christmas after all.  I think I read somewhere that it is illegal not to add glitter to Christmas cards ... lol! 

If you want to see what the other girls have made you will find their details in my sidebar.  

Take care and enjoy your weekend.
