What a nice way to spend a rainy day!

Friday was a dreadful day but I spent it in good company at Lesley Buckle's card making day. I haven't done much of my own lately as been busy with the garden. I loved all six cards but like all crafters I am ultra critical and know there are bits I could do better. Painting is not my favourite activity as some who read this will know. The first card was painted with distress inks.

The next was made up of circles folded around a square and then mounted on some gold coloured paper. A good use of all those left over papers.
On the next card the tree was stamped with versamark and embossed in silver. The background was  made up of squares  from a holly embossing folder mounted on a large square of silver. the tree was mounted on the same and then  sticky pads used  to make it stand out.
A simple nativity scene with a moon masked background. I think I was too light handed with this one. it needs more depth of colour.

I like this card as there are so many possibilies with hedgerows and trees. Everyone must have stamps in their box they can improvise with. the deer are a die set from Memory box, they are so versatile.

Everyone loves an owl, and this one is no exception. A digi stamp coloured in and flower soft used for his hat and the snow.
