Snowy Postbox


Thank you so much for all the lovely Birthday wishes. I had a lovely day at Colchester Zoo, even fed a giraffe and elephant. The weather was glorious for October and we sat outside for coffee and for lunch. I had some lovely cards and pressies, some crafty, and some money which I shall be saving for the NEC next month.

I was inspired to make this card by a photo challenge on the Docrafts site. I love Teri's scene digis at Delicious Doodles and I knew I wanted to colour just the postbox with Copics. The paper is from a new pack I bought at The Range, Dovecraft Tis the Season. The dies are both Marianne and I added some raffia lace and a Crafty Sentiments digi sentiment and some stickles.

Glad to hear that you had a great Birthday and that the weather held out for you. I'm looking forward to the NEC also, it's lucky that my birthday also falls ahead of it so I can use my Birthday money too. There's so much to see and buy, lol.

Love the way you've coloured only the postbox Marianne. Looks so striking. Also makes the rest of the scene so 'Winter White', which is a fab effect. Hugs, Wends x
