This is one for High Hopes. Please meet She-Baa, lovely stamp to work with for christmas and even easter, so easy to cut around too and i hope you like my little creation. It's not a big card and could have gone overboard with lots of snowflakes and as I'm building up my own collection of cards to send to the special angels, everything has to be fairly flat and this is perfect! So this is a Stair Step card, could have been a normal one like the talented dt's have done over at their blog but I'd tweaked my own template long ago and had to give it a go. Tree in the background is from Toodle & Binks, comes with lots of hearts around branches but I cut them off andsaved them. Paper is from Martine, loving these, sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy Snowflake set heat embossed with blue inkpad and clear embossing powder, X cUt snowflake punch used, blue gems for their centres and bell, blue metallic effect braid from the haberdashers, yes I've had another spend, it's a wonder what you can use on your cards...

...placed some white tissue paper subtly stamped with silver & white snowflakes for snowy effect...

...heat embossed sentiment

...the back, so sorry for dark shading on the bottom left (it's not a smudge), it's on the camera lens,and can't seem to get rid of it...personalised stamp from Scrapmagasinet. I've used it so much and still is the same! There's so many challenges this one fits, so I'll mention them and link up but if i don't meet the requirements please disregard my entry...Charisma 'with love @ christmas', CCT 'gently does it', Bah Humbug 'fancy folds',Winter Wonderland' sing a christmas carol (mine is Silent night, Holy night, all is calm, all is bright), Top Tip Tuesday 'christmas inspired', Anything Challenge, Ellephantastic 'blue',Crafty Calendar 'winter wonderland xtra of snoflakes', Allsorts 'twas the night before christmas', One Stop Craft 'embossing', One stitch ata time 'winter wonderland' and Crafty Purple Frog is 'sparkle'. I think you can see the Glamour Dust, mirri card and braid is kind of sparkly too. There's candy at the top, all I ask is come back to see if you've won! Bye for now all.
