Wild horses



Good morning Peeps, hope you had a good weekend and got a few things ticked off the Christmas 'to do' list. Welcome to my new followers, it's lovely to have you join in. 

Despite all good intentions I didn't get very much blogging done this weekend and even struggled with my DT rounds, really don't feel much like anything still I'm afraid, but I will get there eventually I'm sure and thankfully this post was already scheduled from here on.

Time for me to share my second DT pieces for Craft a Scene challenge where this months theme is simply 'Winter Scenes' and FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping where our theme is 'A Pocket Full of Posies'.

For my card at the top I stamped the Hero Arts image twice with black archival, but masked out the little deers as I wanted to add the horses instead which are an old Inkadinkadoo set which I've wanted for ages and one of my sons managed to source for me on e.bay recently. I added the colour with Pan Pastels and a little bit of glitter on the snowdrifts. The star is Hobby Arts.


My second piece uses several stamps from FlonzCraft stamped and embossed with detail copper onto a background created with distress ink......picked raspberry, tea dye and Victorian velvet which I spritzed with pearl glimmer mist. The bird and branch is a TH alterations die and the flowers are the same Flonzcraft image which I used around the edge and coloured with the same distress inks and glimmer mist then cut out and decoupaged.

I hope you all have a good Monday.

Both are beautiful but the first is going to melt Little Miss C's heart!

She is still making her cards but Grandma has been naughty and hasn't updated theponygirl06 blog. Naughty Grandma!

I am struggling a bit with this blasted recovery...I am barely keeping up with my life at the minute so her poor little blog has to wait.
I will show her your wonderful card on Tuesday before school. I know she will ask me to read to her how you made it!

Both stunningly beautiful cards Brenda, I love the scene on the first one it's just so pretty and the colours are gorgeous and the die cuts and lace on the second one are beautiful. I really hope you feel better soon, but make sure you take the time you need and get plenty of rest, rushing yourself back in to doing too much will do you no good at all and we will all still be here when you get back.
