CD Sunday - Snow people

Over at CD Sunday Challenge this week the theme is snow people.

This is my card for the challenge -



I turned to 2 My Craft Studio CD's for this card - the background is from The Magic of Christmas - Vol 1 - Contemporary, & the snow people are from Parchment Delights - Vol 3.

I layered the background onto a red square whilst still using MCS to give it a frame this was then placed on a square white card.  The snow people I printed twice.  They had a sort of "snow glob" partially behind them which didn't fit with my idea so I cut that off from both images.  They were then placed together with sticky pads & placed on the background.  To give it a wintry feel I added some glitter by scribbling with a glue pen.  Glitter & I do not get along - but this much I can manage.

Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit & if you would like to leave a comment it will be very much appreciated.

Background paper

Hello everyone - goodness I hadn't realised it had been so long sine last blogging.  It's probably due to the fact that I have had to try & finish sorting my new craft room as it has to have a single bed in it & the bed will be used this weekend. Having to concentrate on that I haven't had time to enter any challenges - but hope to put that right this week.

Anyway  - to my background paper.  Well that is what it will be when I have found the right images to go over it.

This morning about 7:15 the sky was absolutely amazing & I have a "thing" about taking photos of the changes in the seasons & times of day - so got snapping.

This is one of the 6 photos I took -


Just looking at it you wonder where the aircraft that left those streams have been or where they are going, don't you.

This one is the one I must turn into background paper - 


I was thinking that if I put it through the MCS effect "swirl" it would produce some great patterns for more backgrounds. Then there are all the things that can be done with it in Serif Craft Artist too.  Hmm! must find time - no! - make time, to play.

Thank you for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Perhaps you will pop back again to see what I actually do with that photo.

Hi everyone
Sorry I have not been blogging but I have been on holiday - didn't have a good enough internet access to blog - much too slow.

Still I have some fantastic photos from the holiday which I can't wait to start working on - so watch this space.
