Woodland Delights

Good morning all. 
Monday again...and only another three left for this year...EEK!! Gary leaves for New Zealand on the first Monday of next year and whilst I'm very excited for him I'm not looking forward to the day :(

Yesterday I went to the races for the company Christmas party...a first for me! We went to Kelso where the going was good and all seven races went off without mishap. Unfortunately my betting skills still need to be honed greatly and whilst I had a few seconds and thirds I won not a hapenny piece! We'd hired a members box for the afternoon and had a nice meal and a good view of the proceedings in the warm and dry....well dry on the outside, there was a fair bit of liquid flowing!!

Today's share was made for a card swap with the theme of "Woodland Delights".

I chose an image from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kinkade CD and printed it on artists canvas, simply matted and layered onto cream pearlescent card, silver mirri card and added a red velvet ribbon which I think was recycled from last years crackers. The tree die was a freebie from a magazine.

Challenges entered:
Craftyhands Challenge - winter theme
Jo's Scrap Shack - winter wonderland
Scrappin' 4 Fun - anything goes
Shelly's Images - welcome winter

  1. Oh wow so cute is your card and such an adorable Scene so beautifully presented xx

  2. Hi Carol, this image is fab, just a perfect winter scene and the tree die is super, sure missed that one!!
    Sounds like you had a great time. I once went with my sister to the races and didn't win anything until the last race when by a complete fluke I picked a winner and won around £30, which paid for a lovely meal on the way home.
    Hope you're ready for Christmas hun, I sure aint, I know it's coming and I'm still running behind.
    Hugs Sue W.
