Yep . . . it's Tuesday today

and that means it's time for a new sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. As always Dawn has drawn a "stonking great" sketch which I have flipped . . . well, I had an idea you see and to make it work, I had to turn the sketch over ! ! !

Now when I saw the sketch I automatically thought of "Snow globe" . . . can you see what I mean . . it screamed out to me "snow globe", so that's what I did !

Papers: Funky Fairy's "Lil Blue Cracker"
Snowflake stamp: Elzybells
Rub ons: Doodlebug

I have cut 2 circles in different sizes; loads of chalking & inking and then stamped my snowman into the smaller circle. I stamped him again; coloured him with promarkers and raised him up with foam pads. I have even used GLITTER . . . This is momentous for me as the stuff seriously scares me ! Made a snow globe base which as been finished off with some ribbon and for some unknown reason . . . has a huge snowflake stuck to the side of it ! Stamped some extra snow flakes along the top of my globe and finished with a sentiment.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - the theme this week is "merry & bright" and I think my card is definitely both merry (look at that snowman's expression) and bright.

Cute Card Thursday - the theme is "Glitter me silly" . . I know that the glitter on my card is a touch sparse but hey, this is LOADS for me. The stuff scare me half to death . . so going to be brave and enter my card as hey, this is a big step forward on the glitter front for me !

Secret Crafter - their theme is "Four Seasons". I have rather obviously chosen Winter.

Well gotta dash as have to have a further spring clean / declutter (!) as my new kitchen gets delivered tomorrow !
