Calico Snowflake

Hello everyone, I've just got a quick sneak peek for you today, and it's pretty short and sweet once you get there too.  I'm over at the Calico Craft Parts blog with a tiny festive creation.


I hope your preparations are all going smoothly, and that you're feeling calm and collected and ready to play, and of course with plenty of time to hop over and check it out... hmmm!  For now I'll love you and leave you, and I'll see you again soon.

They say that every snowflake is different.  If that were true, how could the world go on?  How could we ever get up off our knees?  How could we ever recover from the wonder of it?
Jeannette Winterson

As long as you don't mind hopping to Calico to see the full reveal...
I'd love to enter this in the Winter Wonderland theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
And I know the colours might not look very grungy, but I hope you'll like the grungy textures if I enter this for the Grungy Christmas theme at Stamps and Stencils
