This card so fits our weather at the moment but Dena made this one with a Mary Hall design way back in the summer! It was for a feature in Craft Stamper and you can see all her cards and the tutorial on how she achieved the sparkly effect on her own blog here

So we have plenty of holographic embossing powder in the HOS and with the weather set to continue I think the snowy stamps have a long shelf life here in the UK at least.

Here are some others from the catalogue

I think the above samples are from Sarah,
but with  no watermark and with the 1000's of picture in my files it's hard to keep track with out watermarks.


I also took a gander at Dena's Sugar Nellie Gallery, ( well worth a look if you have time, but there are over 100 cards!)

I lifted these to show you ...

So technique Tuesday's tutorial link was at the start of this post, try it out and let me know how you get on.
Thanks to Dena for taking the time to show us how its done.

Other than that, not much news, but a shout out to Cass "rock chick".............while shopping in Adsa this morning I notice they have boys T shirts with Kiss, ACDC and something else, I thought of you and as they were not your size or mine then why not for Louis :)

stay warm and take care
