I'm submitting this to the new Uniko Studio Challenge - USC#16, they've changed the rules a bit - you don't have to use Uniko Studio stamps anymore (although they'd love it if you do) on your project. The theme for the new challenge is Anything Goes or Anything Goes with their sketch. I used the sketch. I stamped the large stamp in Versmark, heat embossed with clear powder and then inked over with lilac. I then stamped a selection of smaller snowflakes over the card, added a greeting stamped on vellum and finished with a large blue glitter die cut snowflake. I layered the white panel on blue glitter paper. On the inside is a mat layer of blue glitter and on the white panel a Christmas greeting and more snowflakes.
I have to say that this came together really quickly! While we have the sun shining at the moment and no snow, the forecast is for snowy squalls blowing in this afternoon.
A quick screen shot from the weather forecast earlier this morning. I'm not really complaining, we haven't got it half as bad as many in the States - some areas have had over 3 feet of snow overnight, and we're no where near that.
I think Ben and Sophie are finding the temperatures something of a shock. I took them out yesterday and the walk between car and shop was a shock every time we did it! Both the kids smoke and have to go outside if they want a cigarette, I have to say that if I were them, I'd definitely be thinking of giving up!! Not sure what our plans are for today - maybe a quick trip to Northville before the snow arrives. That's it for now - see you soon.
