Christmas Launch at Sir Stampalot

Evening Everyone.
Thanks for stopping by. This is a very quick post as it has been another long day, but fun, as it always is when I'm on holiday at Sir Stampalot.
I think I might need a holiday to get over this one, and a payment plan for all my stash lol.
Christmas starts tomorrow here in Peterboro with three days of fabulous demonstrations. There has had to be a bit of juggling done with the demos as unfortunately the new Molly Blooms Christmas stamps weren't ready in time, so I am now going to be playing tomorrow instead of Sunday.
I always have a great time when I am here, and it's always a bit of a challenge over what I'm going to be doing as I don't usually find out until I get here. But I hope people will like what I've done.
I have been playing with some of the new Penny Black and Hero Arts Christmas stamps, and there certainly are some lovely ones there.
The major trouble with being in the shop for all these hours is that I keep seeing more and more things that I just have to have!!! It's all about the ownership girls. Sorry, bit of an in joke between me and Janice.
The card I am sharing with you tonight has been made with a stamp from one of the new Hero Arts cling sets CG209 Four Framed Snowflakes. The greeting is actually from a very useful clear stamp set CL343 Holiday Sayings.
I have stamped the snowflake using versamark ink and then have applied Decorating chalks using a cotton wool ball.
The greeting has been stamped and embossed afterwards and as you can see the embossing powder sticks to some of the snowflake image as well. I rather like this slightly patchy effect, but if you don't then you might be better off stamping the greeting with a Stazon pad and not embossing it.
I have made the card using a Nestabilities set. It makes for a nice small card and would have fitted very nicely in to the challenge over at Allsorts. I see that I'm too late to enter this time but I will leave you the link anyway as they have some good challenges.
Hope to see some of you tomorrow - well in a few hours actually.
Nite, nite
Love and hugs
