Crimbo card No1.. first to show of many lol

I can't quite believe that i've missed out on the last 5 or so Compendium of Curiosities challenges..
Well that changes today.. I'm getting back to feeling like me again and to prove it here is my offering of this weeks Double Distress Pg40 {see book for details}
I used broken china and faded jeans, with a smidge of brushed corduroy for my grunge, the snowflakes are a cuttlebug folder. I dont have the Timmy one YET!!
I punched out a couple of snowflakes and covered them with diamond dust, don't they look pretty.
The dotty paper, snowman and sentiment are all Timmy stash, and the base card was stenciled using the snowflake waste from the punch outs.
This also fits in with Something Completely Different's 'Snow' prompt, Lots To Do's 'Embossing' prompt and The Stamp Man's 'Anything by Tim Xmas theme' challenges.
It's so nice to be inky again, i can't tell you how much i was feeling like i would never craft again!
But here i am, hopefully normal service should resume shortly.
I've had a good few inky days so lots more crimbo cards to come!

Hello, you darling girl! It's so great to see you, and please don't feel bad about missing the challenges-- you're always welcome back whenever you have time, and I'm thrilled that you had time for this one!

What a beautiful holiday creation this is! I LOVE the beautiful winter-y color palette you used, and the layering of the perfectly double distressed grunge with those gorgeous papers makes this really special. The color blending on the snowman is amazing!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that I get to see you for the next Challenge, too! Happy December!
