Baby's First Magical Christmas

Last night I was jigging about, after Cazzy told me she'd spotted Spyder's Corner had been mentioned in the Crafts Beautiful Magazine's Top Blog Spot!! Wowohoo!! And this morning the Postie poked my mag through the letter box and I quickly searched the pages and there it was along with two other blogs, how fantastic is that!! I know it's only tiny and if Cazzy hadn't told me, I would've missed it, but I'm well chuffed! So my mojo suddenly came out from under the bed and I've been having a bit of a crafty day! (Well, I thought I'd better put something on...I mean, on the blog! Just in case I get a couple more visitors!! (even though they typed my link wrong)
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Trigger's lost a shoe and Slim Pickens has found something very nasty down the well...and now, back to the card...
The Magical Crafts Challenge has a sketch this time round and I thought, oho, I'll do that! But as usual I'm a bit behind! I've used freebie papers again, and if you didn't fall asleep on one of my older posts you might remember them, but if not, you can download them from The Craft Table. They're called Winter Wonderland and don't forget to leave a nice comment!
I've also used acetate over the front of the card and then fixed the cute little Forever Friends bear on to that. The snowflakes were punched out of a white glitter sheet with a Woodware punch and fixed using silicone glue. Just to give it a bit more sparkle I've coated some double sided tape with a smidgen of micro glitter. down one side of the card. For the larger oval I used a large Dovecraft punch.
The font is a freebie, and one I've already mentioned but just in case you missed that too, (where were you!!) it's called 'Honey Script' and can be found here where you'll find two fonts to download.
I'm hoping I can enter this card into another challenge, but...I've gone and forgotten where it was! Aha!! Pile it On has a Tinsel Town challenge this week, well~there's a bit of glitter, so I'll pop this into that challenge too.
Ok! It's tomorrow all ready so I'll love you and leave you and see you later with a shaker card, my favourite! Bye bye till then.
