Cheeky Chappie and Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge

This weeks Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge is to make a card which complies to "Blue White & a little bit of snowflake!" Here is my card:
It's not really me and I'm not over the moon with it but it's always good to go outside the box a bit.........I have used my "xmouse ornament" Penny Black stamp and as usual have coloured it with my watercolour pencils. I have run the entire card blank through the Cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder and have gone over it with blue chalk ink. I then painted with the same colour ink to highlight the snowflake on the image. I then used a wide ribbon with a smaller bow. Finally I added LOTS of glitter (which you can't really see) to the background. In fact I wish my blog had glittervision as my cards would look much nicer if it did!!!!!
I must tell you about the visit I had from my nephew yesterday, he is cuter than cute and the cleverest child ever to walk the earth (do all aunties think this??? LOL) Firstly he decided that Arthur needed to sleep with all his toys........this is the result:
Poor old Arther, he is so chilled he really isn't bothered by it all. Olive isn't quite so sociable and done a runner as soon as he got here..........
Finally he asked me if he could take my camera to take a picture of Arthur in the conservatory......this is what I found when he asked me to show him what he had taken!

He told me "It's my funny trick Auntie, I tool my own photo, do you like it?" well who wouldn't.

  8. Your card is lovely.

    Being an aunt myself I must say yes our niece who is 3 is the cutest little thing and I could spend the day just taking pictures of her. The picture of the cat is funny, the cat doesn't seem bothered at by all the toys. And the closeup pic is to cute. Do you scrapbook? If so that would be a cute page and story.
