Even if you're photo phobic!!

If you are anything like me, you will hate to have your photo taken.
The challenge over at Sweet Stampin this week is to 'add a photo', the chosen theme by my teamie Alie.
First thought.... arrrrrgh!  I don't 'do' photos!
so I had to look elsewhere, I realised that I had bought a download from CraftsUprint a couple of months ago and hadn't yet made anything with it. The download was for 2 snow pictures.
So if you, like me, are 'photo phobic' ...don't panic! you can still play ;)
Take a piccy of scenery, or your dog, cat, hamster, rabbit, or anything else that you'd like to put on a card or scrapbook page and enter this weeks challenge.

Here's what I made (don't shout at me for making a crimbo card! i'm getting in early for xmas 2011) lol

the front

the back

I started by printing the snow pictures onto 220gsm cardstock.
I uesd acetate to make an A6 card blank.
The first image was matted onto pale blue paper and mounted onto the front of the card, I added the greeting (by Catslife Press) by stamping onto the same blue paper, then added 2 large felt snowflakes (by SU) and finished the front by using lots of crystal gems.
The other picture is inserted inside the card but 'back to front' so that the plain back of the picture can be used to write a greeting and the image itself can be seen from the back of the card as shown in the photo above.

Our sponsor this week is Tiddly Inks who are donating a $10 shopping spree to this weeks winner!

Before I go, i'd like to enter this card into the challenge at Papertake Weekly, who have the theme 'cold and frosty morning'

Happy crafting, and have a lovely weekend :)
