As the "Big" day is fast approaching I thought I ought to finish them off so I can get writting them and get them posted.
I don't normally use lots of blue when making cards. I think that having two boys I have tried to get my pink fix where I can, but this works well with different shades of blue. The card base is embossed with snowflakes that I have dusted over with some chalks. The verse is stamped and heat embossed with a glitter dust and the manger is stamped using a pearlesent ink.
The verse reads:
The Legend of the Snowflake
Long ago a glittery star lead the way to a Holy Child.....
and today it is said that snowflakes are tiny pieces of that very star,
sent to lead our hearts anew to Jesus, Light of the World.

The colours are lovely, sadly my photo doesn't do it justice!
Thanks Julie the cards is lovely and will have pride of place on my craft desk.
It's Samuel's show and tell at school today and he has taken his gift tags that he made with me at the fair on Saturday. He is very proud of them!
Well I've done the supermarket shop this morning and picked up some miniture gifts for Samuel to give his teacher for Christmas. So now I'm off to find a design for a gift box to make. Hopefully I'll show you my finished gift tomorrow.

I used the Seeing Spots set for the background and the cake from the Fun & Fast Notes set, I coloured the cake with my SU markers and used Pumkin Pie and Pixie Pink card stock.
Now all I need to do is decide on my layout on my display boards, but I keep moving them all round and changing my mind!!
