A Wintry Scene

Good morning.  Time once more for our little Christmas Card Club to produce a card to save us from panicking when Christmas suddenly appears out of nowhere!  I always find it amazing that it seems to catch us by surprise every year - and yet the date is the same every year.  We could be forgiven for getting caught out by Easter which could be classed as "a moveable feast" since the the date is different every year - but Christmas ........... Anyway our little club beavers away all year round and it helps to take the strain out of things.

This time Rachel has asked us to make a scene and so that is is exactly what I have done. Actually I think this would also make a great winter birthday card.

My Card

Fancy step card - Craftwork Cards
Image - Greeting Cards Factory De Luxe
Frosty Spruce and Frosty Pine dies - Memory Box
Sentiment - computer generated.

This image was so lovely I decided it needed very little in the way of embellishment. I printed the image twice and cut the second one in half for the sides of the step card. I diecut the trees in navy card and then just added lashings of glitter.  Voila!  Job done!

Well the sun is shining brightly through the window as I'm writing this Christmas post!!  Bodes well for the rest of theday, although John has just told me it is going torain.  Well, saves watering the garden!!. Hope you enjoy  whatever you have planned - or maybe you are just having a lazy weekend!

Take care.
