Good morning my crafty friends. I am sorry it has been so long since my last post but ill health had taken it's toll. I have bad arthritis in my hands and also have carpal tunnel in both hands and a trigger finger on my left hand which has kept me from crafting. I have got a few cards to put on that I had done but for now I am posting my DT card for Gruffies and Guests challenge blog. The theme for this month is blue and silver or anything goes as usual. I was lucky enough to have a early birthday present from my Hubby which was some new dies from the couture creations dies which included this beautiful die (winter flourishes collection) I just had to use it as it makes a beautiful frame for any image you want to use. I cut a piece of silver miriboard 1/2 cm smaller than my 8x8" white card blank so that a little white was showing around the edge of the card,then I placed the inner snowflake die where I wanted it and cut it out. Then I chose this lovely snowflake backing paper and cut it another 1/2cm smaller than the silver piece to give a silver frame and then cut the outside frame die to match up with the silver cutout to create this lovely frame. I then decoupaged my chosen house mouse picture from the triple cd and placed it underneath to show through the aperture. I added some white diamond sparkles glitter to make the snow shimmer and added this lovely silver snowflake patterned bow and a sentiment. I hope you like it,it's a bit late to be a inspiration to you as I am sure you already have all your cards made for Christmas but it is the halfway reminder for this months challenge so perhaps you could pop over and enter for a chance to win this months prize over at
