Ally Pally Goodies and Snowman Card!

Good morning

Hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend.  It's a beautiful sunny morning here in Norfolk ... oh I love sunny autumn days :-)  I had a wonderful day yesterday with Marianne and Lynsey at Ally Pally yesterday.  Lots of craft shopping and chatting and we also met up some lovely blogging friends ... waving at Vicky, Jacqui and Heidi :-) 

I have recently been sorting through my craft stash and have found lots of unused stamps, paper pads etc so I didn't buy a huge amount but am really pleased with what I came home with ... i'm sure this will keep me busy for a little while :-)

The new Crafter's Companion Snowman collection was launched on Friday as Pick of the Week on Create and Craft.  The POTW contains a bumper cardmaking kit and a special edition CD-ROM.  The cardmaking kit is £24.99 and features card blanks, rub-ons, die-cut decoupage, flocked snowflakes, stickers and much, much more!  It even comes in a special keepsake Snowman folder. 
You can make over 48 cards with the kit alone so it's great value for money!

Also included for FREE is the special edition CD-ROM.  This CD is different to the previous one because it also contains templates and designs to enable you to make lots of different shaped cards.

Here is one of the cards I made using the CD-ROM.  I have printed various elements and made an acetate front card.  I printed one of the card blanks and cut it down to create the scene behind the snowman and sprayed it with iridescent Spray & Sparkle.  Unfortunately you can't see from the photograph but IRL this is really sparkly.  I have then decoupaged one of the Snowman images and placed it on the scene.  Just finished it off with some punched borders, ribbon and pearls.
