Winter Wonderland

      I have a lovely friend who loves dancing and every time I hear swing music (which I love thanks to my Mum!) I think of my friend. She goes off on lots of adventures often to do with her dancing and I adore seeing her photos of these journeys! She has a wicked sense of humour so I made her a shadow box with a winter theme instead of a Christmas card!
        The shadowbox was painted and waxed and I used the Sizzix Birch Trees Thinlets: Holiday Words Script Thinlets and Woodlands Thinlets all with plenty of glitter. I hope she likes it!

The Green Stuff!

Sitting here in the living room, everything smells wonderfully of the Christmas Tree which is glowing away bedecked with lights and baubles!
I treated myself to a couple of different shades of green inks from Lawn Fawn so I could use them with the Deck the Halls set, I'd never found the Tim Holtz Distress Inks had worked well with polymer stamps! i was really pleased with the quality of the stamped image and the shades of green and happily stamped out lots of fir boughs!
Again I used the Flirty Frames (so useful for everything!) and a reindeer for the new Penguin set!

Cuppa something Hot!

I love the Love you a Latte and the cookie Lawn Fawn sets! I kept the colours simple again, creating a snowy background with some of the snowflake stamps from the Deck the Halls set and embossed with white embossing powder. 

Loved the Flirty Frames set, great to sit any stamped image in!

Penguins in the Snow!

Not the chocolate penguins! Lawn Fawn's new set which has lots of cute little stamps to create a scene with trees, snowballs, a sled, reindeer and hats!

Again I kept the colour scheme simple and coloured it in using Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. This is entered in the Lawnscaping Christmas Challenge and the Simon Say Stamp Winter Challenge.

Festive Fun!

So Lawn Fawn released those cute new Christmas stamps and I indulged in the sheep and penguin sets! They were great fun to colour in and I actually didn't stress too much over creating the cards, tried to keep it simple!
