It's going colder again

We had a bit of frost last night and tonight we have a forecast for a little snow in the early hours, as long as it does not last as long as the last lot lol.
I got the Christmas decorations away this morning, I now need to carry on clearing out from where I left off in December, I think my craft shelves and paper storage are one of my first priorities, I find I have become obsessive about saving cardboard boxes to put things in, all shapes and sizes, If I'm not careful, I may end up living in one as the house is over-flowing---- hehehehe Is it just me ????

Today's card is a friendship card, I tried the crackled look, (if that's the right term)that I saw in a demonstration, it has not turned out as I thought it would though.

Free paper from a mag.
Sentiment came with it
LOTV stamp which was a new one just before Christmas and I did not use.
Coloured with Pro-markers
Heat embossed 3 times with Holographic powder, then cracked when cold
Sizzex swirl with silver stickles
doily dabbed with distress inks, tattered rose and Antique linen but it does not show in picture
Ribbons and corner from stash

I will be entering into the following challenge;

Paper Sundaes ----- something new (stamp and crackled technique)

Creative Inspirations Monday Challenge -----Use something new ( stamp and crackled technique)

Thank you for passing by

What a very sweet card! As I'm sure you know, I love the House Mouse stamps and this one is so cute. I think you did a great job on the cracked glass look. I don't know which tutorial you watched, but there is a good one I think on Splitcoast Stampers under the "resources" tab. Happy New Year Tilly! Best, Curt
