Christmas In May

I'm busy trying to get ahead of myself, scheduling posts for when I'm away soon.  Add into that mix some decorating, some splashing of the cash at the stamp show last week, and it's no surprise to learn that I've been buying Christmas stuff in May.

Well, actually, it was a surprise to me.  When the postman knocked on the door with this parcel, I'd completely forgotten that I'd placed this order, and couldn't remember what it contained until I opened it.  How bad is that??  How good is that!!!  Like Christmas :)

It contained (amongst other things!) the Tim Holtz Layered Snowflake die and this Texture Fade embossing folder, so I just had to use it before I put it away for Christmas.  I inked the inside of the folder with Weathered Wood and Tumbled Glass, added my card and ran it through the Cuttlebug and got this gorgeous icy snowflake.

I'm entering this into the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge Anything Goes:

I could be back with another card for this challenge yet - there's a new Christmas stamp waiting to be added to my stash....


  1. Brrr ... that is gorgeously icy and frosty, Shirley ... and so striking ... just wow! Anita :)

  2. This is gorgeous! Some simple yet so striking and effective! I love it! Glad to see you playing over at OLCCC! :-)

  3. Hey Shirley girl! It's not called 'forgetting''s just that you 'simply overlooked' a certain purchase (and likely the charge on your credit card as well!). But how nice for us that this unexpected parcel resulted in a wonderfully decadent snowflake to be admired!

  4. Love the texture fade embossing folder and your beautiful embossed Snowflake. Thanks for sharing at OLCCC, great to see you here.

  5. Well this is just scaring me now, don't think about Christmas till it's too late!..but I can't resist commenting on your stunning card, absolutely dreamy colours..perfect! Ruth x

  6.'s like a scene from the movie, Frozen, which, by the way, I happen to love. Ergo, I love your card! Yayyy for the 'unexpected' happy mail!
