Bringing flowers in the snow


Another of my new stamps. I have impressed myself by using so many of my new stamps so quickly. just need to use some of the older ones which are stamped awaiting colouring.
Image - LOTV Christmas flowers
Medium - Copics
Papers - Kaisercraft silver bells
Dies - Lawn Fawn forest border, Memory Box border, IO fir trees
Punch - Crafts Too snowflakes

The Stickles is white in real life but is reflecting the pink on the photo, how strange.

Challenges

Well it was lovely to see so much sun at the weekend but yesterday afternoon it was hotter than I like. Today we are hiring a boat on the Broads for the day along with two other couples so that should be fun and will be a bit cooler on the water.

Lovely card Marianne - the image is beautiful.
It was rather warm and very humid down here by the Thames. The forecast is for a couple of days in the 30s - I am so not looking forward to commuting in that.
