Winter Woodland

Hello crafters and for those of you in the UK, I hope you are having an enjoyable Bank Holiday Weekend. We had scary thunder and lightning yesterday, (nowhere near as bad as those poor people in Poland) and a lovely day today so I hope tomorrow will bring more of the same.

Unusual for me to be here on a Sunday night but Martin has an early start so is tucked up in bed and Connor (having taken his last exam for his degree) and Laura have rented a holiday cottage in Lincolnshire for a week, so I have no interruptions at all and made this...


I snapped up this stamp set when Waltzing Mouse Stamps announced that they were closing their doors and cased a card from their inspiration gallery for this one. The stamped elements were coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut and added to the stamped tree background. Not my usual style but I was really pleased. My Cheery Lynne Poinsettia die set had an outing and the ribbon and perl brad were in my stash.

I was inspired by these challenges

A Gem Of A Challenge - Weather (I chose snowy winter)
Winter Wonderland - Pearls and Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by xx

  2. This is so sweet Sarah. I've just got a couple of minutes while Al whips up some mussels for supper, says he's starving!!! At least they don't smell as they are cook in the bag from Sainsbugs. Weather glorious all day, Al made me a potting bench then finished off one of the tall raised beds. Had to do some bunny protection as my carrots are now through, have a good rest of the week. :)

  8. You HAVE to know I love this one! Great job on the tree scape, and love the stitched hill where the cute little fawn is gazing up at the beautiful bird. Looks really great, and I hope you'll find more uses for this wonderful set. Hope your day stayed lovely, with no t boomers. Enjoy the rest of your holiday. TFS & Hugs
