My Friend Flakey



Good evening,

Well sadly I've now caught the cold, first it was Rab, then Iona, now moi.  Still, I managed to get out to a Docrafts demo at a local craft shop this afternoon held by the lovely and talented Beckie Dreyer.  I don't manage to these demos very often but I enjoy going when I can because quite often I have some of the products already at home but other people use them in ways I'd never have thought of and that's what I like most about going along.  I also managed to pick up one of the die sets that was being demo'd, some lovely mica spritzing ink and a couple of pearlescent ink pads.  These aren't the type of stash items I'd usually go for but I'll try just about anything once lol!

Ok, so onto today's card.  I picked up this gorgeous Sugar Nellie digi as a freebie a few weeks ago when they were having a joint Facebook event with Kit & Clowder.


I've coloured the image with Promarkers to match the papers which were a magazine freebie ages ago.  The sentiment is from LOTV and that has been stamped onto some of the patterned paper.  The snowflake was made using a Die'sire set and the card is finished off with ribbon, buttons and gems.

Thank you for looking and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
