Allsorts Challenge - A Christmas Carol

Here is my entry for this weeks Allsorts Challenge. Guess which Christmas Carol I was thinking of? That's right - Good King Wenceslas -only kidding, lol! I'll let you into a little secret. I was really stupid and coloured the floor green to start off with, duh! It's snowing and I forget about the deep and crisp and even stuff on the floor!!! I then coloured over with 2 different sorts of white gel pen, some white acrylic paint and some tippex! It was looking okay until I applied the stickles, but now the snow is an off white very dodgy colour... Steve suggested I blame the foxes! There was another Christmas carol suggested too - a variation on See amid the winter snow... I think I'd better be quiet before I offend all my readers!

The stamp is from stamporium, and I coloured it with promarkers (mainly!). Thanks for looking!

What a lovely card, very striking, Had a chuckle at your snow story glad I'm not the only one who messes up now and then.

Absolutely no idea what carol you would be refering to there Sally.

Nice card and why not a good covering of snow, been hanging around for a while, hence the off white colour.

Thank for joining in the fun at Allsorts this week, good luck with the draw.

Ah yes foxes love throwing their snowballs in the snow! Lovely card, really nice image and I've used tipex before now...but only because I thought it was the glue pen!

Lovely card. Foxes? Just being true to nature, weren't you? ;-)

Hi Sally

Thanks for the giggle.

I love your card.

Just be careful though if you are posting it out to someone for Christmas. There may be excess postage to pay to compensate for all the layers behind the snow - especially the Tippex!!!

Thank you for joining in the fun at Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx

Ha Ha, I thought I was the only one who did things like this. Hubbys are great with their comments as they pass by aren't they!!
It's a great card Sally. I'm on my second attempt at this challenge, the first one made it as far as the bin!!!
