Let it Snow

Hello, everyone! It's Karen here with some Christmas cheer! I had my first play with new gorgeous Christmas goodies from Pion Design and Wycinanka... I was certainly in my happy place. 

This will first be used as a tag to adorn a loved one's gift, after which it will be used as an ornament for their Christmas tree. ♥︎
My heart fluttered upon receiving this darling Wycinanka Let it Snow birdhouse and Pion's Greetings from the North Pole collection. Isn't it a precious pairing? ♥︎ The little background scene is from the Midwinter Night sheet. I painted the birdhouse in Crackle Paste and covered the snowy rooftop with Snow Writer and Glamour Dust. For its festive interior, I backed it with a holly design from last year's Christmas in Norway collection. The birdies are fussy-cut from the Borders sheet.
Snowy Christmas roses and Pomegranate Apples (in Cranberry Sauce) adorn their sweet little home. The ornament base is encircled with Mini Pom Trim and Pearl String, while the top is trimmed with a beautiful lace soon to be added to LLC's site. I love how the flowers can look like snowflakes, which was the inspiration to use it as such. The ever-versatile Fayette Lace is centered with a pearl snowflake to wrap the ornament with wintry beauty.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Hugs and blessings,

One For The Boys...

Morning everyone, Becky here with you today with something you won't see me making very often and something that makes even less appearances her, a boy card!!

I have used prismacolor pencils to colour the image in to match the papers from the 6x6 Summertime from Maja Design, there are some perfect papers in here to make boy cards, they also work well with the florals too, I give this pad some hammer that is for sure.

Thanks for popping by,


Becky xx
