Snowy Mountains and Skies for CCC

Good morning.  I am back on schedule with my card for our little club.  It is due on Sunday but as usual I am posting a day early because I have a DT post due then - unlike last time when I was a week late!  For shame!

Kate is our lovely host this time and wants to see snowy mountains and skies. I have managed to make two cards so if I can keep this up my stock will soon grow.  But it's early days so I won't count my chickens just yet!

My Cards


Recipe
7 x 5" white base card
blue card - Lime Tree Crafts
Falling Snow e/f - Sue Wilson
Frosty Border die - Memory Box
word die - Britannia Dies
image - from  Greeting Card Factory Deluxe
gems from stash

 

Recipe
6" square base card
image - in my image folder for years!
copper cardstock - old stash
backing paper - LOTV (disc)
pierced banner die - Sue Wilson
sentiment - computer generated

I added lots of glitter - it's for Christmas after all.  I think I read somewhere that it is illegal not to add glitter to Christmas cards ... lol! 

If you want to see what the other girls have made you will find their details in my sidebar.  

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Oh my, TWO gorgeous snowy mountains cards. Love the softness of #1 with the lovely winter woodland scene. The delicacy of the icycle border enhances the chilly feel (and I did spot those red critters in the trees too). Love those snowy Rocky peaks in #2. You've certainly aced Kate's challenge with these 2 beauties. TFS & Hugs

Wow! Loving both of these Christine. The frosty blue and white of the first one is so gorgeous and wintry, making this scene perfect for the challenge this time, but I love the snowflake background teamed with the gorgeous mountain scene on the second one too.
