Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit!! :-)

I hope 2016 is a good one for you all!

My Simon Says Stamp January 'Flurries Of Love' Card Kit arrived on New Year's Eve! Woo Hoo! A perfect end to a fabulous year! I did quite a bit of travelling last year, visiting Vietnam, Cambodia, our daughter, Amy who is now living in Krakow Poland.
I had a wonderful time at the Simon Says Stamp CREATE event in Ohio, it was so lovely to get together with Heidi, Jason and the kids, they are my family too, my sister Steph and all the Simon Says Stamp family in the office. We also had a wonderful trip to Savannah Georgia, that was amazing! and of course I had a couple of trips back to the UK, visiting our son, Sean, and my family and friends. I hope to have as many fabulous adventures this year too ;-)

Anyhow's enough of my reminiscing and onto my card.
happy memories tho :-)

I white hear embossed the snowflakes onto a piece of the paper and then stitched a strip of torn vellum along one edge, I love the soft 'misty' effect this gives. I used some of the lovely glittery silver washi tape and added a few of the snowflake sequins from the kit for some sparkle and then popped the cute Sea lion on the sentiment panel. I love how this has turned out! 

And this is the whole kit and caboodle! Isn't it FABULOUS I love the purple and aqua colours together, so pretty :-)
