It's a Winter Wonderland

well no not here it's not, not really - but over at MAWTT it is the theme of our challenge this week.

Hi blogworld,

So we would like to see snowy / icy / wintry scenes please.

Shall I tell you the tale of woe behind these cards, or shall I just pop them up and let you admire them in blissful ignorance?

Hmmmm, well you all know how much I love to share - so I shall tell you the tale of woe.  These were meant to be my batch cards for Christmas.  I made these two and showed them to The Hubby - well he smirked!! He then denied the smirking incident and said they were 'fine' but by that point it 'twas too late and I would rather go buy cards than use them.

I have since created other creations and these are consigned to the 'acquaintances' pile.

Here see what you think:

I used:

Sentiment stamps:
Wild Rose Studio

Various Memory Box Dies

Anything else?
Black card - shiny star - white embossing powder

Did you enjoy my tale of woe?  I do hope so - I do strive so to entertain.

Currently I am at SWMbO's school Christingle service.  I will no doubt be back soon,


A challenge, or two:

Happy Campers Craft Challenge: Challenge No 25 - Christmas

Paper Crafting Journey: It's Christmas Time

The Crafters Cafe Challenge: Monochromatic

Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge: Keep It Clean (And Simple) Challenge

Never trust a man's opinion regearding anything creative! I think that's the law! :D

These are just stunning, Sarah. So elegant. They look like the kind of cards you'd pay a fortune for in Harrods! xx

I think these are fab, Sarah! Great batch cards and I love CAS - so stylish! As for the smirking, I'd like to see his attempt?! Everyone's a critic!
Nearly at the end of the decorating, just got the living room to wallpaper then it's trying to squeeze everything back in to our 3 bed semi! How do we accumulate so much stuff! Hugs, Lisa x
