I'm joined by another Guest Designer this week: Ann who produces wonderful creations, do check out her blog but be prepared for a long stay, there's a lot to enjoy looking at there:)

Before I get to my card I have some more Shirleys2Girls news to share with you: First the 45% off sale continues; this is on everything except digi stamps, so now is the time to stock up.

Secondly Shirleys2Girls has a Design Team call out. From January they will be a digi stamp only company and they are looking for Design Team members. For all the details check out the challenge blog, you need to have your application in by 20 December. I would like to add one thing to the info on the challenge blog: I've been lucky enough to be invited to be a guest on the team for the last month or so; it has been so much fun! I've been made welcome by all the team, the challenges have been fun and the Girls are very generous with their images. If you love the images and you're thinking about joining a Design Team, don't hesitate, get your name down now!

OK now on to my card:). I've used the stylish "Greetings" stamp available from S2G here and used non-traditional colours of blue and silver. The image is coloured with Copics and lots of Stickles. I've covered some card with foil and run it through a Cuttlebug folder to add my Twist. The silver and blue paper, as well as the sentiment, are from Craftwork Cards. The image and the snowflake are cut out with Spellbinders dies and I got the darling felt snowflake border from Stamp Attic, my local shop.


  1. Terrific idea, Anne. I had no luck with household foil but am glad to see it can be done. Your cards are great. The shutter card is a masterpiece.

  2. Very pretty and sparkly. Love it.
