This image was one that I had used recently in my Promarkers class and I finally got around to making it up into a card....and yes I have the list of colours!! I am determined to use up my scraps of previous years Christmas paper before I buy anymore...she says and I got 2 free 6x6 pads in some mags this week....but they dont count..lol!!! This card uses some of last years Bo Bunny range and one side of a sheet of 12x12 you get 4 6x6 squares which are great for using as a backing. Bo Bunny do this with all their ranges so it worth keeping an eye out. Don't think 12x12's are just for scrapping, you will gets tons of cards out of just a few papers. I also had some border stickers left over from a kit to co-ordinate with the papers. The easel card itself is from a QVC kit and as the bottom part is folded over and stuck down I dont have to attach anything to the centre to hold it in place..the lip is enough. The trees on the left were already on the paper, I just carefully cut away enough to slip the stamped image behind. One of the scraps I had was covered in trees so I cut a few out to add some more dimension.
The sentiment stamp is new from Woodware, they are doing a range of singles stamps, great value for money and I love the mixed fonts in this stamp and its quite big which is great if you are doing the larger cards. Snowflakes are a mix of punches in glitter card, scraps of Bo Bunny paper and my fluffy paper.

Finally, today is a very special day for remembering the horrors of 9/11...my heart goes out to everyone that was effected. It does put your life in prospective and even though I have had a horrible week my family and I are still here and breathing I just wish I could say the same of the 2976 people who lost their lives that day.
