So this weeks theme is very fitting for this period of time and it is snow and ice - blue and cold. Nice theme isn't it? So luckly for me I had an image coloured up in the fitting colours and just needed to get it down to card which was a lot harder than I had planed for. Lol However, one of the best things with the Papertake Weekly challenges is their little library of sketches they have on an extra page. I really love that. I go there all the time when I have no inspiration to get a kick start and I did so this time as well. I started off with sketch #73, took away an element and got the card done. Unfortunatly the weather has been horrible this weekend so it was not easy to get a good photo of this card. Anyway I have done it and I so happy I could find the time to fit it in as I have been away for a few days. Got back a day early as Willy started to feel better with his cold.
Maybe I should say something about my card as well. A bit of lack of time and I still ended up with this little creation of mine. Two Magnolia images merged together for a little winterscenery and coloured it with my Letraset family. Then I used some of the really stunning and high quality designer papers from Bildmålarna. I love the colours of those papers. I also used some silver colored corrugated paper as backing for my image. Some adorable snowflakes from Joy Crafts bought at Moa Pysell. For my little flower cluster did I also make a little backing page with some snowflakes and then added the lily lookalike flowers. Added a few pearl stars in to that and topped it of with a snowflake silver charm and some silver sprays to that. Edwin and Jasper has also gotten a few pearl stars to keep them company. Gemstones in blue comes from Bo Bunny and I had them for ages. The time will come for everything, doesn't it?
Ok, I probably should shut up by now so I better do that. But I see you soon again. Lots of crafting will be going on here the coming weeks busy, busy as I will soon start school again I hope. They just seem to be able to find a place for us to be. And this is a big ecducational company that has these kind of troubles. Just amazing. For a full control of the challenge, theme and the rules of the blog, why don't you drop by and have a look for yourself.
Love n hugs
