Snowy Days Are Here!

That is right, snow is creeping towards London and my card today is to celebrate this! Yes, I like to celebrate snow as it rarely visits us and a snowy winter walk in the park would be a great way to spend Sunday-so it had better hurry up and start falling!!
My card today is my 2nd Christmas card of the year for the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I only have 50 to go! This week the very talented Ruth set the funky Christmas colours of purple, metallic silver and white. I just love this combo for Christmas and here is my card:

I was hoping you would be able to see the sparkly glitter hills as IRL they really do stand out. I stamped this funky Xmas tree and added a few metallic brads and some purple gems. The sentiment is from PTI

Love how this turned out and so happy I made it to week 2!!

I am also going to enter this into the 'winter' challenges at
The Sisterhood of Crafters
Fab 'n' Funky

If you are a lover of all things CAS Jackie Rockell  is starting a new CAS challenge blog-so keep your eye on her new blog here.

The snow has not yet fallen but we can hope. Happy Sunday crating chums!!
