Well did I say in my post yesterday we had no snow ? ....I stand corrected, we certainly do have some now - so much in fact we were unable to get out of our little town to the pub in the next village for the Christmas meal we had planned with friends..ended up with a takeaway pizza and playing board games! So here is a pic of the snow on the trees around our flat - I have to admit it is beautiful, but I do hope the roads are better for my journey to work tomorrow.
And in keeping with the tree theme here is my card for today. I made it some time ago for a dear friend and her fiance who had to cancel their wedding due to a family bereavement but didn't blog it at the time as it seemed to personal. I wanted understated and thoughtful but tried to add a glimmer of optimism with the sun rise peeping through the trees.
The tree stamp is from Judikins and I've just stamped it twice over a background coloured with distress inks using a mask to create the sun. The foliage on the card edges is a stamp from inkadinkadoo stamped in DI also. The sentiment is a rub on - I don't use them often but don't have a thinking of you stamp - something I need to remedy!
I'm entering this into the challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday - where the theme is trees and also at Allsorts which this week has a 'free and easy - anything goes' theme.
Now I really must finish off those Christmas cards and present tags...thanks for taking a look, Esther xx
