Chasing Snowflakes - Another Combi

Well, we've had a lovely day out at Blackness Castle. For once, the weather held up - a bit blowy but a nice day nonetheless. I feel so blessed!!! I'm into old castles and churches in a big way and our Jack is fast following suit, I'm glad to say. Mind you, I have to admit to feeling a bit like an old ruin myself at the moment. Women of my age will understand, the dreaded hot flushes have struck. Now, these I can contend with but all of a sudden my legs appear to want to go walk about just when I go to bed at night. I've just settled down and all I want to do is sleep but my legs and feet have other ideas. They behave as if they would rather be out and about with someone else - preferably at a disco, I think. I believe it's referred to as "restless leg syndrome". It's driving me blooming bananas, I can tell you. Is there a cure apart from chopping them off?

These images are part of my new stash from my outing to my fav craft place on Saturday. I think they are dead cute. This is my entry for the Passion for Promarkers Challenge this week which is Pastel Pink and Cool Aqua. You have also to use the sketch and a very nice sketch it was too. I am also entering this card for the Little Yellow Challenge which is Lace and Pearls. You can have a punched edge for the lace bit so I've got that and I've got pearls on their wee coats. I coloured the wee boy's coat with my cocoa promarker. I've been taking note of the tutorials! Stamp with Fun is also pearls this week so it qualifies for that as well and Creative Inspirations is bling. I've stamped lots of little snowflakes and "stickled" each oned individually - took me ages! I also put Glamour Dust on their pompoms. I think that should qualify for a bit of bling. Last but certainly not least, One Stop Craft is Christmas in July. Since Christmas is my favourite time of year and this is a Christmas card, we qualify for that one as well.

This is my recipe:

Images: Kars - Cold Christmas by Nellie Snellen
DP: Crafts House - Winter Wonderland Winter Words
Pink, Aqua and Cocoa Cardstock - Coredinations
Coloured with Promarkers:
Pastel Pink
Cool Aqua
Ice Grey 1 & 2
Saffron and Gold
Stickles: Frosted Lace
Pearls - Kanban
Tools: Fiskars Snowflake Punch
RicRac (how do you spell that?) from stash

If I had to choose a name for this card, I'd call it "Chasing Snowflakes". Don't they look happy?

Thanks for looking.

have you ever been up to the NE of Scotland, they don't call it castle country for nothing! They are all so different - from the ruins at Dunottar which is just down the road from me to the majesty of Balmoral.

Oh Lynne this is wonderful I love that colour combo and how cute is that image. I also loved visiting castles and stately homes the history always held a fascination for me. I have finished the hot flushes but my legs at night they drive me mad lol. I have left a little something for you on my blog.
