Winter Wonderland Mark 2

Good morning all.

Yesterday was a wasted journey...the property we were looking at had a house belonging to someone else in the middle of the land which went with it grrr. Never mind we're not in a hurry so I'm sure something right will come along eventually. I did manage to almost finish the Christmas shopping too so not altogether wasted.

Another Christmas card to share, hopefully I've only got one more to actually make. Very similar to the one I shared two days ago as I decided I really liked that one.

Scenic stamps from Crafty Impressions and sentiment from Clearly Besotted. Main image is heat embossed with white detail EP. Inking is done with some DI and a little bit of Memento around the outside to match the card. Stitched die is from Lawn Fawn, snowflake is from Memory Box and the scene dies are from the middle of a Spellbinder die.

  12. Gorgeous! Love this series of colours and designs you are using!

    I know what you mean about frustrating real estate viewings. We looked for so long before finding ours. Will be so glad to move in January...seems like we looked for years...about 3 years I think. Saw so many that looked great on the internet and then turned out to have awful views or just horrible lots.
    Our new one is not perfect by any means but finally came close to ticking most of our requirement boxes!

  13. Beautiful card, great work. Thank you for taking part in the Crafty Boots Christmas Challenge.

    Wishing a happy Christmas to you and your family.
