I am so pleased that our weather has finally turned to Spring and I think Mother Nature must have been feeling a bit sheepish as she gave us a couple of abnormally hot days to enjoy being outdoors again. Of course, we spent them cleaning up the yard, but it really needed to be done anyway.
A new challenge starts today at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and our theme is winter sports. So if it can be done in the snow or on ice and someone could potentially loose an eye, then it should count :) I decided to go with hockey - even though I think I must be one of the few Canadians who doesn't care for the sport. There are some fans in my family, so I am sure one of them will enjoy this card... and the mice are really cute!
Stamps - House Mouse stamped with black stazon on 300g hot pressed watercolour paper and coloured with distress ink, Amy R Snowman Sayings sentiments (I'm not sure if it is legible from the photo, but the top one says 'cold twigs, warm hearts')
Paper - BoBunny Snowfall and MME Miss Caroline
Other - twigs fallen from the willow tree in my front yard (so it was relatively easy to bend one into a frame), glitter for the snow in the image and on the branches, baker's twine, TH mini ticket die.
We have a fantastic sponsor - Quixotic Paperie is providing one lucky winner with a £10 voucher to their store!
I hope you will join in the fun! I'm looking forward to seeing your winter sport themed Christmas creations :)
I would also like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Allsorts - Add some sparkle
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Let's get sentimental
Papertake Weekly - Anything goesThe ABC Challenge - M for Make it sparkle
Winter Wonderland - Dashing through the snow
Thanks so much for popping in and for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate them! I'm afraid I have fallen a bit behind with visiting and comments at the moment, so if I have not been around to see you, I am sorry. Life should get less hectic this weekend, so I will catch up with everyone then.
