A walk in the snow


Morning Peeps, a scheduled post as I'm having my first cataract op. Normally it's only necessary to rest it for a couple of days, but because of the nerve damage in both eyes I've been told to take a screen break for a week or two so afraid I won't be visiting for a while 😚

Kath is our host at Allsorts this week and her theme is 'Snowmen or Snowflakes' and we have a pretty Christmas Tree stamp for your winner.

Well as I don't own a single snowman stamp it had to be some improvised snowflakes. The image is from Crafty Individuals which I stamped with Versafine Claire and coloured with pencils, stamped a couple of branches and used glitter to add the snowflakes. The sentiment is an old Penny Black one and a mixture of dies used to frame the image.

Have a good weekend all.

Ciao Brenda,
credo che ormai la tua operazione di cataratta sia finita e tu adesso stia riposando gli occhi. Spero che tutto sia andato bene e che presto ci siano dei miglioramenti per la tua vista! Non avere fretta di rimetterti al computer!
L'immagine vintage che hai usato è deliziosa, la colorazione con le matite e i toni accesi rende tantissimo sul bianco, e i fiocchi di neve glitterati danno proprio un bellissimo effetto di fitta nevicata. Una card festiva e dolce!
Un grande abbraccio, abbi cura di te!

Happy Advent to you, Brenda! All your cards inspire me, but that first monochrome floral creation really touches my heart (pun not intended). Such a great reminder of the Layers in our lives, that love is present in each of those layers, and that the beauty growing therein, comes from our hearts as we grow personally and within our culture. All those amazing words in the background, the gentle blue of the petals - the stenciling - it is all a reminder that who we are is so important, that constantly changing and growing is where love abounds, and that love will see us through every event and circumstance of our lives. It's really incredible - and your card speaks far more to me, Miss Brenda, but I shall save you from those words LOL big hugs, and a heart full of gratitude for beginning my day with this shining masterpiece! hugs, de

I can't seem to keep on schedule these days, so I'm late to your blog. Anyway, hope the surgery has gone well & that you're taking the break as ordered. This is one of my favorite Brenda cards! Beautiful image & wonderful framing!
