Frost Fair nails!

Last Friday I toddled off to one of our local National Trust properties to spend the afternoon at the Frost Fair there, a veritable feast of Christmassy crafty-ness, with perfect crisp white snow and the smell of mulled wine to get you in that festive mood!

It was full of some beautiful things, jewellery, handmade cosmetics, cards, chocolates and fairies! I don't know if it's something that's exclusive to Attingham Park or f it goes on at lots of different venues, but if you get a chance to go then I'd really recommend it, I managed to pick up a few little pressies and it made a great afternoon out even if it took me the rest of the day to get the feeling back in my legs!

Anyway, the day before inspired by the snow and helped along by Leanne's tutorial (she puts me to SHAME!) I created these:

I used ELF's white as a base, with their Golden Goddess next (LOVE this!) and Collection 2000's Button Moon for the snowflakes.

Are you feeling festive yet?
