Christmas Card Club - Snowflakes/All White.

Hi, ....Sunday already, time goes too fast.
It's been a fortnight since the last challenge at the Christmas Card Club and so the new theme is...
Snowflakes / All White
 
Here's my card...
If you've been following my blog recently you will know that it has been mega busy for me lately and so I'm afraid this was rather a quick and simple card but quite pretty. I'm not very happy with the lighting in this photo but it's been so dreary and dull that nothing I do seems to make it any better, sorry. The snowflakes are die cut from a Cheery Lynn die, which, by the way, I think is awesome - it cuts 20 different snowflakes with one pass through the machine. The tree is a Marianne Designs die and the embossing was done with a Cuttlebug folder.
I hope you get a chance to visit the other Club members blogs - links to their blogs are in the CCC tab at the top of the page - There will be some beautiful creations for sure.
 
I also hope you can pop back later as I will be posting another card, one I couldn't share before as it was for my eldest daughter's birthday, but as today is the day and she will have already seen it I'm safe to put it on my blog. It's her 25th birthday, boy that makes me feel old, and we will be having a family celebration in a few days which I am looking forward to. 
 
Thanks for joining me today, and see you a bit later,
 
Lorraine

Gorgeous card Lorraine. Must look for that Cheery Lynn die - cutting individual snowflakes can end up being quite a chore! Lovely embossing folder too. Hugs Christine xx

Such a pretty card Lorraine - love that embossing folder you've used. Must look out for that snowflake die - bonus that it cuts so many at once. Enjoy your daughter's birthday celebrations.

Lorraine, this is a beautiful card, and surely didn't look 'fast' made. Love all the delightful icy details you've got going on with this pretty card and I hear you about the lighting. Your card showed up wonderfully on my monitor, so TFS & Happy Birthday to your daughter. 25 is pretty young...wanna talk old..how about a 46 yr old DD? But we're thankful to have them reach that age, right???Hugs
