The Natural World at Christmas for IAAS

 Good morning and I'm here with my DT card for IAAS where the challenge is "The Natural World at Christmas - but no robins".

 If you are looking for my Christmas Card Club entry then please scroll down to previous post.

My Project


This is a lantern made from John Next Door's large lantern die. I don't have this die but a friend of a friend very kindly die cut a number of lanterns for me. Our WI craft group was asked to decorate the windows of the Village Tea Rooms at Christmas and so I did some of these lanterns as my contribution.  Unfortunately I didn't take pictures before we set it up - then lock down came into effect and we  were unable to retrieve our projects. - until a couple of weeks ago. We have now been asked to do an Easter display too.

I decided that trees, deer, flowers, foliage and snow definitely fit the bill for the natural world at Christmas. Why not pop across to the blog and take a look at what my teamies have made and maybe join in our challenge.  We are a Just for Fun challenge so no prizes on offer I'm afraid.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Take care.
