I am running late with my bloggy post today because I have been super lucky to have my little squidgy Mo-ster at home with me all day today. The teachers at his school have been supporting the public sector strike today so I got an extra snuggle day.
We have had the best day as we have spent it with my mum. Mum and I had haircuts then we popped to Asda and on to the garden centre for Mo to see all the christmas decorations, he loved it...and so did I!! have got my eye on some super cute decorations for the tree this year so I can't wait. I really really fancy having a real tree this year so I need to work on Scott for that one!!! :) I saw the cutest ever pom pom tree tinsel that Mo would absolutely love so I will have to work hard ;) !!!
Anywhoo!! onto my card!! My mum's friend has ordered 6 cards this year and this is the first one I have got done out of the order!! its a biggy!! its an 8x8 inch card. I am new to 8x8 cards but oh my I am loving them!!
I was completely inspired for this card by the Allsorts challenge blog peeps, they rock!! so I am entering this card into their Pennants/ Bunting challenge.
I am also popping it over in the I love Promarkers challenge blogs snowmen and snowflakes challenge. The Helz cuppleditch paper has the cutest snowflakes all over it, I love it! its from the Festive Treats 12x12 stack (....just to enable you of course....:) )
Promarkers used- snowmen- pastel blue to outline the snow peeps inside, burnt orange and ginger noses, boys have cool grey 3,4 and 5 on their hats and the girlies have antique pink and pastel pink hats. The boys have poppy,cardinal red, pear green and olive green on their scarves and the girls have pastel blue, denim blue, antique pink and pastel pink on theirs.
I absolutely love my new SU pennants punch set and stamps and on an 8x8 card it is just perfect for getting that hanging bunting effect and the image to fit together perfectly and not get sqooshed in. I popped my snow family out on some foam tape and added a papermania sentiment stamp punched out with my SU oval punch set (.....Lou reads the post back and realises she is addicted to SU stuff.......!!!)
The snow peeps are an old freebie from JellyPark. It was just one super cute little snowman but he told me he was lonely, needs must so he got resized and flipped a few times to make a cute snow family!!!
Right, I had better go and get the yummy chicken and sausage casserole my mum made us this morning dished up and eaten and then once my gorgeous little man has gone to bed tonight I need to get some more crafting done!!
Huge squishy Hugs!
