As we have been gripped by arctic conditions in the UK I tried to create a cool icy feel for my December calendar page. It was quite easy to get in the right mood for this - I was able to do this yesterday because I had a snow day (YAY! an unexpected day off!) so I sat in my thermals, shivering, trying to keep the house warm (it's a battle when it's minus 10 outside) and set to with cool blues and silver greys for my page.
I used a house stamp by Paperbag studios and added a tree at each side which is actually from a leaf design on the 'Around the Edge' set by Dylusions.
I even found I had time to create a tag for Dyan's challenge here. Don't you just love snow days?!!
For this challenge you have to take three out of the following four: one bird image, one tag (although I only have the safety pin type), one quote, one Christmas word, all available here. The hardest thing for me is that you have to make your tag in 15 minutes and NO CHEATING!
Just where oh where does Dyan find quotes like this???:
NEWS! Craft Stamper (UK) is out in the shops today, that's if you can battle your way through the snow. I have an article in it this month .... here are a few sneak peeks ......
Do you recognise it?
Can you see what it is?!!
And finally (phew! it was a long post today!) I leave you with a few snowy photos I took out and about this morning. The camera is fine in these sub-zero temperatures - it was minus 7 as I took these - but the photographer was getting a bit chilly.
Our back garden ... can you see the pond anywhere?
Not sure that my plant will survive this:
Love love love snow covered berries:
Icicles that look like Christmas decorations, no, better than Christmas decorations:
Er...... don't think I'll be sitting here for a while:
Byeeeeeee for now. Keep warm :-)
