A flurry in a hurry

Hi guys.  I'm seriously having one of those weeks.  I usually sort my DT cards out over the weekend for the blog posts during the week.  This week I seem to have messed it all up.  I've literally just run in from work and flung a card together for the new challenge at Cardz4galz.  The new theme is - let's here you sing it - Let It Snow!

One of the reasons I am so unorganised this week is because I was preparing for a demonstration and craft session for the local NRAS group (for sufferers of Arthritis).  I have spent ages die cutting bits for them to play with but, luckily, I had some tiny little snowflakes left.  I dragged out an ancient stamp from Hot Off the Press and embossed it in silver.  I then masked a panel and blended some salty ocean distress ink over the top.  I flung a few of the snowflakes on there and added some bling and a sentiment. Voila!

I would love to quote Mr T here and say 'I love it when a plan comes together'.  However, there really was no plan.  Leg it into craft room, find a suitable stamp, fling some bits at it and there you go.  I bet I couldn't do it again if I tried.

Why don't you pop over to the blog and show us your creations.  I may need the inspiration for next week.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x


  1. Wow! How whimsical and elegant! Dawn, your silver embossing and lovely colors made a fantastic card! hugs, de

  2. To say you threw this together at the last minute for our challenge Dawn - amazing. Gorgeous. xx

  3. Oh, Dawn, you make me laugh, just like a good friend should! As I'm singing (you asked me to!), I just have to say how much I love your card! Sometimes genius comes out of total panic! LOL BTW I love that you are helping those with arthritis! As someone who has a form of it, I have firsthand knowledge how difficult it can be to be creative. You have a big heart, my friend! Have a more restful day!

    1. Bless you for your comments Debbie. I hope the Arthritis doesn't give you too much pain. I have a friend who is so crippled with it. She organises the local group and I've had some lovely feedback from them. I'm hoping to go again. Take card. Love Dawn x

  4. Well i would never guess this was 'flung' together card, its perfect. Emmax
