Rustic Snowflake!

Good Evening Everyone,  I do hope you've had a lovely day and enjoyed whatever you've been doing.
It's been a poor day  weather wise, dull and raining, it's really up and down, only a  couple of days ago the sun was splitting the heavens and it was too hot.

I've  been  on puppy duty this afternoon which has was lovely, the three of us just wanted to snooze, after they'd had their treats of course.  I've not been needed these last few days as Damian has been working from home putting together the tenders for Aldi and Liddel, his company supplies their salmon.  He's also been working with his company's food developers on the Christmas buffet food, some of which we have had samples of.  Salmon with some sort of cream cheese mousse shaped like a
Christmas  tree on lolly sticks,  they jury's out, but we are not the best of folk to try it on.  Hot  smoked trout was another taster, in little pastry cases,  now  Alistair loved those.  So if these products go through and your buying fancy bits and pieces  from these stores ,  you'll know where they they  come from.

Right on to my card;
Another card for Christmas using the Rustic Snowflake Embossing folder from the John  Next Door range, and you can but it here.  It's a really pretty EF and I've embossed  icicle Foundation card by CB. 
 Sara Davis snowflake die cut out of glitter card  CB sentiment, ribbon and gems to finish, a fairly simple card, but I'm pleased with it. 

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, really  everyone of them. 
That's all for now, take care and see you soon,

Hi Kate, I have to admit I love salmon, especially smoked salmon, so I'm so pleased to know where it comes from ... I'll enjoy it even more now. Your card is beautiful - the EF is lovely and the sentiment is perfect with the die-cut snowflake. Elizabeth xx

Such an elegant card, love the texture. It's turned autumnal here too definitely a day to curl up and snooze. I hope the Christmas specials do well, I noticed Tesco had all the party food appearing in the freezers this week and I found Christmas shaped potato things next to the sweet potato fries! Just waiting for Nescafé to bring out their gingerbread latte packet coffees now, I've missed them!

Puppy duty, that sounds like a great way to spend a day! I'm on puppy duty every day and I never get tired of snuggling with my girls!! What a gorgeous card!! I love white on white, but it can be difficult to pull off. You sure have done a great job of it! The glittery layered snowflake is a show stopper and the embossed background is beautiful! Love it! sending hugs :)
