It's Snowing and Fab 'n' Funky GD


It is snowing (again) outside and so my Tilda snowdome is very apt for today!  I am very honoured to have been asked to be a guest designer over at Fab 'n' Funky Challenge blog.  They are celebrating their birthday this week and so have a Happy Birthday challenge and an amazing blog hop with some wonderful prizes.

I hear you ask, why a snowdome for a Happy Birthday challenge?  Well, I think they must have changed the theme of their challenge from what I was originally asked to make, to coincide with their birthday celebrations.  So, my snowdome may not be for a happy birthday, but who cares?  I am just so pleased to be a GD at Fab 'n' Funky!!!

I used a Tilda stamp from the Magnolia Winter Stamp Club and she is coloured with pro markers and added Stickles.  The snowflakes are an x-cut punch, covered with a textured "snow" paint with jewel centres (although they don't show up too well on the picture).  The blank snowdome was only about £2 from The Range Home and Garden - but I think they are fairly readily available at most photo processing shops too.

Do take a look at the Fab 'n' Funky challenge - they are a great talented bunch of ladies over there! 

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Corrosive - Things that move (the snow moves when you shake it!)
The Crafty Pad - Snowflakes
Crazy Challenge - Anything goes
A Crafty Little Place - Anything goes
City Crafter - Blue Christmas
Hope the snow's not too bad where you are!
