Hello 2018!

Hi, hello and Happy New Year! This is my first post for 2018...seems like ages since I had time to blog...or visit my blog buddies, but Christmas is over, all the decs packed away, house clean and tidy so back to business as usual :) I had a lovely time celebrating with my family and friends but it's nice to be back to normal.
So what have I made for today...a Christmas card of course! Isn't that what you do in January??? Our theme this week at Sweet Stampin' is 'Winter White' , we'd like to see predominantly white cards. I made this card in a rush, whilst looking after my 2 eldest granddaughters , so I kept it very simple.  Inkylicious stamp, stamped with Memento London Fog ink, liberally coated with Wink of Stella. Can't remember who the snowy embossing folder is from, but I love it! Added a die cut snowflake and stamped the sentiment with the same ink as before. Quick and easy!
 Meanwhile my girlies were having a fantastic time experimenting with my lovely (new and untouched!!! ) Oxide Distress inks, the things you do to keep the kids happy! Olivia (10) made a beautiful birthday card for her best friend, Ruby (8) made a glorious, colourful inky background which she's keeping to use later! You'll be relieved to know that my ink pads survived unscathed, those girl's have been well trained to respect my stuff!
There's some fabulous inspiration waiting for you over at Sweet Stampin' produced by my lovely teamies and we'd love to see what you make of this challenge too...lot's of white and don't forget to stamp!
Thanks for visiting, will be back in a bit with another DT card!
