Christmas with friends




My DT card for the new challenge of frosty Christmas at Crafty Ribbons. I have made a white on white card as I love these so much,  I have made more of these this year than any other year. 
Image - Wee stamps Hobby House topper
Embossing folder - Crafter's Companion
Dies - Doohickey slender firs, Marianne tree
Punches - Martha Stewart snowflakes
Other - Stickles, pearl dots

Crafting from the heart anything goes

Well yesterday was an interesting experiment but I decided to go back to normal posting today. I prefer to see the whole card at the top and I think it is better when the card appears i people's reading lists on blogger. I know I prefer it when looking at other blogs. I also realised that I have cards ordered from people on Facebook who may not be interested in blogging. I didn't seem to make any difference to the number of comments either. I always get far far more visits than I do comments but if you have read this then thanks for looking and if you have commented too a special big THANK YOU xx.

Brilliant card and love this sweet image. The dies are gorgeous. I find I seldom post my cards on facebook but do get heaps and heaps of comments, in fact it takes me over an hour or so solid re visiting my followers who did comment....love your work and would always leave you a little ♥

Two great cards Marianne, re your post below and people having a look on facebook then not commenting on your blog at least they are liking it, lots of followers don't comment perhaps people don't have the time to always visit

Hi Marianne, another gorgeous card, such a sweet image and the white with the red is wonderful.
I like to visit and comment on the blogs that I follow, even although it can take a while, but I will also like and leave a word or two on FB, it's all time though. Kate x

This cute image is lovely and the ribbon looks so well with all the embossing!
I have read all (and thanks for the thanks :D ).
I don't go on Fb, but I think that the card on the top is always more visible for anyone.

I think WOW gives a real wow factor to a card (lol!) especially with little coloured details and the image really pops on this one.
Big hugs, Kat xx

Love how the image stands out on the white background. That red ribbon adds the perfect touch as both a sentiment and pop of color!
