One For the Boys over at By The Cute & Girly

 Hello everyone, a new challenge starting over on BTC&G and this month it's a first!  'One for the boys', think this is the first time we have ever done a male challenge.

Our Sponsores

Simon Says Stamp

 I decided on a Christmas card for Hubby and this month our digital sponsor is Fred She Said. I have used this image a few times and decided this time to make it all wintry. Glamour dusted the van first then coloured with Flexmarkers. Added Flower Soft for the snowy ground.

Fred She Said 'Old Truck'

Marianne Poinsettia, Snowflake, Icicle border die
Cheerylyn -Holly Flourish
Gems from stash
Inkylicious -Merry Christmas
Snowdots embossing folder

Hope you will join us, pop on over and check out what the rest of the DT have made and enter a card.

Been awol just lately, not enough hours in the day at the mo, up to my eyes getting everything organised for our holiday to Canada. The days just seem to disappear and not much to show for it!  Had an unexpected two day stay with my grandkids so exhausted by the time I got back home. So much washing, where does it come from and the weather hasn't being that kind to get it dry. Sorry I haven't been able to leave comments on your cards, will have a lot of catching up to do when I get back. So looking forward to this holiday. Not sure what the jetlag will do to me but will cross that bridge when it happens. Staying with friends in a town called Quesnel. That will be our base for the first week then meander back towards Vancouver in the second. Hopefully I will find a craft shop of some kind for a nosey around.

bye for now

I LOVE this card!!!! When I first saw it, I thought it couldn't be more perfect than this!!!! The colours are fantastic and the embossing just gives it that extra special feel! I hope you will have a good time on your vacation! If you weren't staying at the complete opposite side of Canada, I would tell you to come and visit (I live about 6000 km from Vancouver)!!!

Beautiful card!! May copy your card for next year's Christmas card for my brothers. You mentioned that you glamour dusted the truck. What is that?

Debbie, glamour Dust is very fine glitter. Just type into Google and you can buy it on line, gold or white.
