Cute Card Thursday - Snow and Snowflakes



Hi everyone, I managed to find a challenge to fit my cards today and I'm entering 2 cards because I think they both fit the brief for this one.
The cards are for Cute Card Thursday's challenge of Snow and Snowflakes This week we would like to see 'snow' or snowflakes on your card
The first card is Tilda sitting on a sheepskin covered bench which is keeping her bottom warm, but her little knees look very red.
This has been mounted onto a cuttlebugged circle nestability, then onto some 'snowflake' christmas paper and some lilac glitter card. She's been coloured with Promarkers and finished off with a sparkly snowflake embellishment and a little cuttlebug corner.
In the second card a different little girl called Tilda (surprise!) has just finished building her cute snowman, and she's so proud of him that she's brought a little lamp outside so she can see him better. She thought he looked a little cold, so she's lent him her scarf and ear-muffs. Again the images have been coloured with Promarkers, and the snowman and snow flurries have been finished off with Duncan's 'True Snow' to give some texture. They are mounted onto 'Swiss Dots' cuttlebugged cardstock, then onto DCWV christmas paper and finally onto some silver holographic miri card (which my scanner hates!)
I'd like to thank all of you for the lovely comments you've been leaving, it's lovely to hear from you all and I hope you continue to visit.
