The Paper Shelter Challenge #578 Colours of Winter

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is to use the colours of winter, so think white, blues, purples, greys or greens, but not red and gold, which are more traditional Christmas colours.

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mythical. I thought I would go with a mythical beast for one of my Christmas/Winter cards this time and used the yeti and baby digi stamp from Paper Nest Dolls that I have had for ages. 

I went with a purple, blue, white and grey combo - this combo feel very cold and wintery to me! I did print the digi a bit too big, so had to pop them on to a 7 inch square card base, but I love how quick and easy this one was to put together!

Something Else on Saturday #228 Featuring Gingerbread Kids from Ink 'n' Splatter

Good morning and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post. For today's card, I am using some more of the Gingerbread Kids images from Ink 'n' Splatter, which I had left over from my DT cards. I wanted to do something different and while flicking through one of my dies folders to find a frame, I noticed this theater frame die form Taylored Expressions, which I hadn't used, so thought I'd give it a go. This frame is such a fun fold and I know it's one I'll again and again as I love the element of surprise with it. (Not so easy to photograph though!)

This is the card more or less closed - it started to slide open as I was was trying to photograph it!
