Bah Humbug Challenge #16 is entitled "snowflakes"

Here is my card for that challenge. I'm determined not to have that last minute rush just before Christmas!

Anyway, back to this card. The backing paper is from the Seasons Greetings CD1 from Graphicus. I have distressed the edges using stormy sky DI and stamped a little star stamp from Denami in the same ink randomly. I have matted this onto dark blue card, then added a polka dot ribbon in pale blue. I have cut the snowflakes using a cuttlebug die and added crystal stickles to them, then added a star shaped gem to the centres (not too sure about the gems?). The flourishes in the corners are cut with another cuttlebug die.

As always, when I am making my cards for this challenge, I made two pretty much the same - adds to the stack!

I then spent most of the evening trying to cut out two welded reindeer and a shadow on my cricut using my gypsy. It cut the welded reindeer ok but just kept freezing just after it had started cutting the shadow. Frustrating to say the least. I went onto the cricut website and found a section devoted to the gypsy with a section for technical issues. I found someone else who had just the same problem. I tried everything they suggested but to no avail, so finally gave up and went to bed at 1.30 am!!! Needless to say, I'm feeling tired this morning. Anyway, I am going to get back to it and see if I can get any further with solving the problem today.

Oh well, back to the grind! Bye for now.
