Winter Scene at Craft a Scene

Good afternoon, you can't beat snuggling up on the sofa with the pooches on these cold winter afternoons can you? Its been freezing cold here over the weekend although we haven't got any of the white stuff yet, in fact everything looks a bit drab and damp. Perfect weather for staying in by the fire, especially now as I've put the Christmas decorations up this weekend and everything looks soooooo pretty. Its challenge time at Craft a Scene and this month our theme is 'Winter Scene', sadly this will be our last challenge so I hope you're going to play along and give us a good send off.

For my DT card I've used a shaped card blank from Craftwork Cards, masked the mood and tore a paper mask before inking in the sky and hills with distress inks in Tumbled Glass and Broken China.

The stamps are all from Sheena Douglass, stamped with Grey Flannel Memento Ink, I've struggled to catch the colour on these pics as its more subtle in real life. to finish off I've simply added lots of glitter and a Christmas Sentiment from Chocolate Baroque.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts: animal Magic
Artistic Stamper: anything goes
Brown Sugar: Winter
Christmas Cards all year round: anything but square or rectangle
Fussy and Fancy: happy holidays
Little Claire's:  Shaped Cards

I'm still so disorganised and totally not ready for Christmas eeek! I haven't had time to write a card yet (good job I've been making them all year lol) so hopefully things will be nice and quiet at work this week and i'll be able to catch up a bit.
Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
