One Layer Bells

Morning, who am I again?!  Well I knew the first half of February was going to be crazy with 2 major family birthdays to organise but wouldn't you soon as they were over I came down with a bug.  Honestly, the day after the second Birthday I woke up feeling like I'd been beaten up & run over with a steamroller for good measure!  A week later, I am ready to feel better.  

This card made me smile, first I was seriously impressed that this cardstock went through my printer as it's supremely thick.  I suspect technically it would be classed as light board but what do I know?!  Well it makes perfect one layer cards, that's what I know.

The snowman is Bugaboo & I coloured him very lightly with Promarkers & it didn't bleed through the card...yeah!  He's been made for the One Layer Christmas Challenge whose twist this month is Bells.  This is a great challenge for me as more and more people are looking to cut postage costs on their Christmas cards.  Plus it fits in with my resolutions this year to master one layer cards.  Happy Girl!

Also playing along with the following challenges:

Allsorts - The Colour Purple (very pale, hope that's ok?)
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Extra Feb - Anything Goes
Holly Jolly Christmas - Non Traditional Colours (lilac & blue)

Ok folks, that's me done for today.  Hope you're having a great day & thanks for dropping by.

The Genius (Occasionally!) xx

Fabulous OL card Abi! The cardstock must be pretty substantial for the colour not to bleed through- amazed you got it through a printer!
Hope you make a quick recovery from your nasty bug!

Your card is just amazing! I love the snowman and the wonderful colours.
Everytime I run heavier paper through my printer, I'm glad the whole thing doesn't explode or something like that :)
