Saturday Slot

 A big thank you to CAS Colours & Sketches for picking this card as one of the winners for Challenge 102

This week at CAS Colours & Sketches it's a Christmas theme again, but this time choosing any of the past sketches. 

So I chose Sketch 42


And that circle was just begging for a diecut snowflake! I started by making a glitter line using double sided tape - thanks to Bev for reminding me about this technique - and then randomly stamped tiny snowflakes over the top part of the card. And a sentiment just below the glitter line.

I messed up one of the tiny snowflakes so moved the die cut snowflake over to the other side to cover it up

Finally I added a trio of pearls to outline the sentiment.

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Big & Bold Snow
Ink: SU, soft sky
Die: Die'Sire, snowflakes
Embellishments: DecoArt, crystal glamour dust; Hobby House, the blues pearls

Now for my December Daily pages. Once again I'm linking up with Let's December Daily.

This is my first showing of my new grandson, Edward. Happily after a bit of a difficult time for Mum & worry for Dad, all three are now safely home. 

And the journal card:

This is my favourite photo taken in the hospital - my oldest son connecting with his first baby. My daughter-in-law will make her debut when she's able to hold him and feeling a lot lot stronger.

Well thanks for looking today, your visit is much appreciated. Sending you some Christmas sparkle.
