House of Cards Term One Blog Hop

THIS IS A STICKY POST - so if you've come for Waltzingmouse Fanatics or Make the Day Special - please scroll down - thanks :-D

Welcome to the House of Cards Term One Blog Hop!

If you've come from Sue T's blog then you are in the right place!   If you have just stumbled here and would like to participate then hop over to the House of Cards Challenge blog to get started.  We've got some fabulous sponsors that are providing prizes, so make sure to leave comments at each stop for a chance to win!

For the hop, our challenge was to use one of our sponsors images and to be inspired by the photo below.


I was lucky to get a a fabulous image from Dilly Beans - #516 Framed Snowmen http://sillydillybeans.blogspot.co.uk/  and I used the cool colours and lots of sparkle from the photo to come up with this.


I coloured the snowmen entirely in grey copics and added a hint of blue in the background.  For the sparkle I used silver stickles and some blue and silver beadazzles.  I added a ring to frame the snowmen as a nod to the plates and to contain my greeting which I stamped inside.  The card base looks grey in the photo but it's actually a silver pearl.

Here's a close up on the snowmen so you can see the glitter detail better - I love the tiny blue beads in the beadazzle.


Unfortunately, this will be last post as part of the House of Cards DT as I have a massive new project coming this way in January which unfortunately means I've had to step down.  Thanks to Mynnette and Ruth for having me - it's been great fun ladies and I wish you all the best for the new term :-D

Thanks for stopping by!  Please join in the fun of our hop and make your way over to Vicki's blog!
