Cuttlebug Fun...

I have not used my cuttlebug in ages..so I thought lets get that out and try something out. I embossed the white cardstock with my snowflakes die and then took the oval nestie and cut it out so you could see the image I coloured with distress inks.
So now I can officially say...I have made my first Christmas card...yahoo! It is a start!
I then took a piece of cardstock and ran it thru the snowflake die and then cut along the edge to form a little snowdrift! The inside image is coloured with distress inks and then I added LOTS of glitter!!! My little trees are stamps released from Papertrey last year called, Made of Snow. Another favourite set! I stamped them on Christmas paper and then cut them out, glued them to the snowdrifts!



I have totally fallin' in love with the Lily of the Valley Christmas collection. I have ordered a few and I am happy to say...it will not be my last order! Especially when I keep seeing the gorgeous work others are doing with the images! Have a wonderful evening and thank-you so much for popping in for a visit!
