Craft Your Days Away - Shades of Grey + One Other


I can't believe I haven't posted for two weeks - how rubbish am I?  I just seem to have been so busy.

Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away.

The challenge for this fortnight is Shades of Grey + 1 Other, so why not pop over and join in - there are some amazing creations from my teamies.

We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge - it's The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and their fabulous prize is a ribbon and embellishment bundle.

Here's my card for this challenge:

I've realised it's nearly Christmas so I've made a Christmas Card (ok - I know it's not but I do need to get a wiggle on with my Christmas cards). I've used a cute Pollycraft image and the snowflakes are chipboard shapes covered in blue glass embossing powder. The snowflake paper is simply some snowflakes stamped in black ink onto the grey card.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Willow Sketchie - Christmas in July
Paper Play Challenges - Christmas in July
Card Crafters Circle - For Children
Cardmadfairy  - Christmas in July
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Christmas in July

Anyway thanks for looking - I need to go and tidy my house now as my sister is coming to stay with us this weekend and my house looks like a bomb has hit it.

Hope you all have a good weekend!

Julie xx

Edited to add challenge entries - as I finally got my house tidy!

This is a wonderful card. The shades of gray add to the winter feel -- and what kid (big or little) doesn't love a good snowball fight (grin)? Thank you for entering this week's challenge at Card Crafter's Circle.
