Things With Wings at Winter Wonderland

 Good morning.  Hope this finds you all well.

Here at Winter Wonderland it's time for our penultimate challenge this year. The theme is "Things with Wings" and our sponsor is Sheepskin Designs. 

My Card

My card is a 7" x 5" red base card, I have embossed white card with Sue Wilson's Falling Snow embossing folder and just added a strip of Scandi Snow paper from Lili of the Valley.  The image is Penguin Stack from our sponsor and coloured with Promarkers. The snowflake dies are from  Dovecraft.

I hope you all find plenty to keep you occupied and safe during this new lock down. If I am honest things won't be much different for us.  Due to John's health issues he has shielded for the most part with only the occasional trip out to walk along the river at Evesham and a walk through the grounds at Upton House, a National Trust property just a couple of miles away from us and where we were the only people there. Heaven.  I have continued to do my grocery shop, but at 7.30 in the morning when there are few people in the store.  I have always been an early bird so that suits me. I have also met with a couple of my WI friends in the village a few times but outside in their gardens where we could keep a very safe distance apart.

Anyway, stay safe and well!

Hi Christine,
it's good to read that you are safe and well, just as we are over here.
Crazy times... but we have to deal with it.
I was so suprised by seeing your card, because I used the very same image for a card, which I published on my blog just 2 days ago. Such a coincidence!
Well, keep smiling and crafting!
