Joy the world...


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? What a freezing cold day it was today here in London! I'm taking my winter puffy fluffy parka tomorrow morning! It was my first day in my new job today and it was a great day! All colleagues are lovely and after sitting two fun test required by the agency I had some fun getting to know their systems... more to be done tomorrow! I missed the blogland though because my blackberry is on the way out and no longer displays pictures, doesn't lock and getting online is always accompanied by a prayer followed by a massive fail! I'm definitely getting an iphone soon! I will then be able to keep in touch with you all more once I have one... for now, I will be probably a bit quiet during my days and will be catching up later at night. Please bare with me!

Today I have a quick post for you where I'd like to share a wintery card which I made the other day...

The background is a Brusho wash, the gorgeous trees are from the BoBunny stamp set that came with the Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine, both of which are gorgeous! the trees were embossed using a white Wow! embossing powder and the snow dots were created using the gorgeous silver pearl embossing powder, also by Wow! The 'snow' is made using the gorgeous 'shaved ice' by Cosmic Shimmer. it's so pretty and sparkly in a real life! it was sprinkled over some Mod podge. I also added a bit of Diamond stickles to the star. The sentiment scallop circles were layered using some dimensional tape. Simple yet effective card, I think! I hope you like it! Feel free to let me know what you think about this one, I always appreciate your interaction with me here via my little blog. I'll look forward to reading your comments tomorrow and hopefully will have time to re-visit!

  1. this is gorgeous Ingrid, love your background and all the lovely sparkle. Carol x

  2. Can't say i agree with your choice of phone as i moved to Android and use a Galaxy Note, the screen is so much bigger and the photography more fun as the camera has a much better lens and images are sharper, but that's just my opinion lol. Needing a larger screen was also a vital component in my choice.

    Am ADORING your Brusho background, very Northern Lights and a perfect companion to the white frosty trees, very special indeed Ingrid.

    Glad all went well on your first day and i like the sound of your winter puffy fluffy parker, just want to wrap up and snuggle after your melodic description.

    Enjoy your days and we will see you when you have time.

  4. Ingrid, my dear friend, I'm delighted to hear your job is starting off so well! They are blessed to have you, which I've probably already told you... but it never hurts to hear it twice, right?! :o) I'm sorry your phone isn't doing so sparkly but know you will love your future iPhone!

    As for your card... it is exquisite! I LOVE purple sky backgrounds and yours is the loveliest I've seen. The snowy trees are extraordinary and I love all of the texture you gave the snowy ground. The sentiment is equally beautiful, which your peaceful landscape pairs so wonderfully with. As always, your project is marvelous! I look forward to seeing what you have planned for us tomorrow! :o)

    Hugs and blessings,
