Dreaming of a White Christmas...

Even though the majority of snow has disappeared here in London, it's still extremely cold out there and we still have the threat of more bad weather to come! I wonder if we will have a white Christmas? That would be, my dream come true!

But there's so much to do before then and my list seems to be getting longer instead of shorter... arghhhh!!

In the meantime, I've made lots of lovely cards to share with you all over the next couple of weeks and I can't wait for you to see them. I am so proud of some of these cards...and I particularly like the one I'm sharing today...and here it is...
I love the way this card came together, it's extremely colourless, if you know what I mean...but so effective! For me, it captures that icy, wintery feel, so well.
I must admit, I am loving using my Cuttlebug and Big Shot to die cut and emboss all these elements and for me, these two machines have really transformed my work. I don't know where I'd be without would be like cutting my right hand off! hehe...
Of course, that beautiful, elegant deer is from Tim Holtz's Alterations range and the snowflakes are die cut using a Spellbinders die, which has been so useful for all my Christmas cards this year. The JOY message that I stamped onto white card is from Paula Pascual's Stamp range and I matted and layered it all using papers from Dovecraft, some Bazzill cardstock and some Centura Pearl card, that I embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Finally, I just wanted to let you all know that the wonderful Barbara Gray and Clarity Stamps, will be on Create and Craft tomorrow morning at 11:00am and if you look carefully, together with all the lovely cards from the fab DT at Clarity, you might see some of the samples that I made for the show and will be sharing with you all next week!

I hope you all having a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by to look at my work...
Love Emma
