Card For Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #79

Helloooo! Hope you are all well.  It's been an extremely busy week and will be now throughout the winter as the horses are in at night, which makes a lot more work for me.  I won't be making a card a day like I have through the summer, it'll only be 2 or 3 cards a week now, especially with no craft class either for the next few weeks.
BUT I have made a card for this week's Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge, which has a lovely sketch for us to use.  Here is my card:
You probably all know this image called 'Dropping The Shopping' by LOTV.  I saw it in a magazine last Christmas and absolutely fell in love with it.  The papers are Henbury Lane and the sentiment is by Little Claire's Designs.  I've added glitter to the little girl's hat and coat, and used white embossing powder at their feet, which I find perfect for snow.  I tried some fluffy stuff last year but didn't get on very well with it at all.  Embossing powder really does the trick for me, but if you've used something else you can recommend, I'd love to hear from you!
I am getting on quite well with Christmas cards and am trying not to panic as there isn't long to go.  But on the plus side, it's also time to be looking through those websites and catalogues for ideas for your Christmas list, isn't it?  Hubby has already bought me a subscription to 'Simply Cards and Papercrafts' recently.  The free gift is 48 Promarkers which came in the post on Tuesday.  I've been drooling over all my new colours ever since!  Can't wait for the first magazine to arrive, too.
Well I'd better go and ride before it rains again.
Have a great weekend, everyone.

  1. Another lovely card, Jane. I'm the same as you with the snow, tried the fluffy stuff but gave it up as a bad job when I kept singeing it and you know what they say about the yellow snow lol I use white embossing powder too and sometimes add a bit of iridescent powder for a subtle sparkle.

    ps I haven't forgotten about the stamped images, just not been able to go to the post office as I'm in a lot more pain with my back this week

  2. Cute! I really like the dark green as your accent choice. It gives a sense of "richness" to the card.
