Winter Fun


Alan has been working from home most of the week, as he is feeling a little weak, i'm trying to persuade him to go to the doctors, but you know what men are like - it's like dragging Whisper to a bucket of clean water, she suddenly turns into a 'Donkey' ;-). We are off to see Benedict Cumberbach in 'The Imitation Game' tonight and my friend Celia is looking afer H.

I hope this is CAS enough, as i really struggle with it, the image was not meant to be decoupage, but I had a slight accident and poured water over the card, managing to avoid the image, how i don't know, so i had to cut it out !!. Today's stamp is one i managed to buy from the PB supplier in my village (unfortunately i've not bought many from him, as i had a lot of what he had already) : Penny Black - 'Winter Fun / 1546K / 1999', for the fur on the jacket i've used : Flowersoft - 'Ultra Fine White', for the holly berries are highlighted : Tim Holtz - 'Distress Stickles / Barn Door', and the snow is : Stampendous Frantage - 'Chunky White', the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Each Friend / 3261F / 2006', the paper is : Imaginisce - 'Polar Expressions', the twine is from : The Ribbon Girls - 'Cherry Red'.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Without Words - where the November Challenge is 'Preparing For Christmas'

A Little Bit Crafty - where the November Challenge is : 'Clean And Simple'

The Ribbon Girls - where the November Colour Challenge is : 'Red'

Squirrel's Snow-vember  - where the Challenge is 'Snowman'

Divas By Design - where the Challenge is 'Snow'

Penny Black Saturday - where the November Challenge is 'All Wrapped Up' - 3rd Entry

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
