loving memories

I've recently discovered a fab set of papers in my stash and although these are Christmas themed papers I wanted to go for more of a winter and less of a Christmas feel.


The Sketch (spun on it's side): Crafts 4 Eternity. Additional ingredients - a flower or two and a sprinkle of glitter.

Other challenges:

From the Forest: Saturday Surprise.

Merry Christmas, Happy Winter: Kraftin' Kimmie.

Favourite things: Creative Card Crew. Mine is crafty stash, of course!

Three: Wednesday Stamper. I have 3 brads.

Winter Love: Simon Says.

Chipboard: Creative Belli.

Click on photos for a better view.

Papers: Making Memories ~ Mistletoe: Cardinal, Icon Dot and Mistletoe.
Chipboard: Bracket (recovered with Mistletoe paper) and 'Memories' tab page ~ Fancy Pants.
Flowers: Prima
Brads: Papermania and SEI.
Ribbon: Doodlebug.
Machine stitching.
Punch: Martha Stewart ~ Branch.
Image: Diane Duda ~ Winter Birds coloured with copics. Aren't they soo cute! I don't normally buy just pure animal themed stamps but this one was too irresistable and I am sure I will use it again.

I added Cosmic Shimmer ~ Glitter Jewels to the branches where the snow is.

Another view:
I am using this set of papers for my next piece but I will be using different papers from the set together with one of my new Christmas Magnolias. Which one? You'll see soon! She is all coloured up, in fact I coloured her before I made this one. I was just waiting for the right sketch to come up (which it now has) as I have a certain look in my head for her. So I hope to share that one with you soon.

Thank you for looking.
