Snow fun!

Hullo, Hullo,
I have a Mini Magnolia card today to show you, my lovely friend Tracy bought me this as a gift last year and I have only just found her since (well I did say she was mini!) I had put her somewhere safe along with mini Edwin and his lizard.
The reason I started this card was because I wanted to play with my new Martha Stewart PATP Deco flowers, these damn punches are slowly becoming my guilty pleasure (as Cheryl Cole would say!) I have also used MS branch punch and MS poinsettia punch, I seem to have gone a little punch crazy!!
I have also used my fab new Sentiments Flags die and stamp set from Lil Inker, I am loving this it comes with sentiments (although this sentiment is an Elzybell) along with a die to cut out a banner image.
I still have lots of cards to make and am finding it hard to find the time and to be honest don't really feel that inspirational to make them but they gotta be done one way or another!!
I was happy to find that my card qualifies for the following challenges
Just Magnolia - anything goes and sparkle (there is sparkle honest!!)
Secret Crafter - christmas
Stamp Something - Christmas Colours
totally papercrafts - christmas punches
Top tip Tuesday - anything goes
Stampavie and more - snowflakes
Now onto some snowy pics..
Don't trees look pretty covered in snow - i love it!
Kids deciding to build an igloo this was taken just before they started arguing and then burying each others head in the snow! Brotherly love !!
They then decided to build a real igloo..

Sadly this never got finished because then the rain came and everything started to defrost, so they have decided this will be top of the list when the next lot arrives!!
Hope you have had fun in the snow and not been too disrupted!
Toodle pop!

    I love MS punches too LOl slowly but surly building up my stash. Although I find it difficult when using a corner punch and border punch to match up correctly!!

  19. Your snow photo's are amazing! Thanks for sharing :) And as for that card - it's just too beautiful! xxx

  20. I knew you live in a flippin' mansion, I just knew it. Nutters Wing indeed! This card is so so so so so so so so so pretty, I love it. xxx

  21. Oh girl you and me both have an obsession with these punches. Don't you LOVE this one? I sure do and I love your card too! Such a clever way to use that little stamp!!!
