I normally schedule my post, but i have so much going on - last night i was at my Strictly Dancing Class Party and had a fabby time too, i took a bottle of wine expecting to bring it home and i did - but with only enough for a glass for Alan ;-) (and this is from a person who normally only has a glass of wine with dinner, when i'm on a cruise, as we usually have a drinks package included !!), plus i've been trying to pin down my best friend in OZ, as she is coming over for Xmas - yipee, as i miss her so much.
This month's Challenge over at Penny Black And More is 'Anything Goes With A Stamped Image' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :
A Pair Of Tickets To : Stitch, Stamp, Sewing Craft Show In Manchester In February
Today's card is for Alan's Dad and he is not keen on cute cards, i have had this stamp? Penny Black - 'Cozy Cottage / 945H / 1996' for a while and i wasn't sure what to do with it ? as i wanted to create a snowy scene and stamp and colour it in, in brown and green - so i used Distress Inks for a change : Tim Holtz - 'Brushed Corduroy and Peeled Paint', the snow on the cottage and in the garden is : Aleene's True Snow, the sky is : Tim Holtz - 'Milled Lavender, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire', the snow is : Stampendous Frantage - 'Chunky White Embossing Enaemel' and the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Friends And Family / 3991F / 2009' stamped in brown.
