Sun -v- snow

I've been away for a while on my hols. I must be one of the only people I know who leave UK in a heat wave, to holiday in the Arctic!

I kid you not, we cruised to the land of the midnight sun, which is in the Arctic Circle - and yes, the sun stays up for 24 hours - thank goodness for blackout curtains!  We had snow, sleet, rain and a force 10 gale, all the time knowing family & friends were bbq'ing in the sun!! 

Still had a lovely time, seeing real live wild reindeer in their natural habitat was amazing. And the Norwegian fjords are gorgeous. 

So no crafting for a few weeks, and have to say its been so hot in my craft room I couldn't summon up much enthusiasm. But today made this stepper card

I'm hoping it qualifies as a snippets make to enter the challenge over at pixies playground, as the whole thing is made from a leftover aperture card. I bought loads of these in my early crafting days, but struggle to use pre-printed cards now, I prefer to stamp & decorate myself. These were too pretty to get rid of, with glittered butterflies, so I set to with the scissors & this is all that's left of the original card!

Going in the snippets folder for another day! And the centre stepper card will be the basis of my classes next week - a twofer!! :-) 

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend, whatever you're doing. 

Thanks for stopping by

  1. It certainly does qualify Debs! Fabulous card - I love the colours and butterflies. And what a clever idea - funny enough, I was rummaging in here earlier and came across a load of ready printed card stock and I wondered however I'd use them! Now I know :)

    Your holiday sounds brilliant - now I know where you've been hiding lately!

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. What a great idea...Your card is lovely!

  3. What a gorgeous card and in purple too so extra brownie points from me!
    Your trip sounds amazing Debs. I hope you will be scrapbooking it all? I would love to see the pics. I have a special place in my heart for reindeer! Had to laugh at your comment about getting away from the warm weather. My friend and her family booked a holiday in Portugal over Norfolk Broads to get away from the damp British weather! It is warmer here right now!
    If you see my teddy, can you let me know please. Threw it when the gates were shut last night. Gotta find it now to say sorry!

  4. What a pretty card. And your holiday sounds amazing.
