"In the lane snow is glistening....."

3 challenges in 1 card today! Winterwonderland and Bah! Humbug!#32 both chose the same inspiration this week "Walking in a Winter Wonderland". While Sew Many Challenges#23 is "Christmas in August" :DI've taken my inspiration from the verse"in the meadow we can build a snowman". I have this gorgeous DRS Designs stamp that was given to me by Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches, which I've stamped straight onto a piece of pale blue damask printed paper, then coloured with sympathetic shades of promarkers. I made the little words with a set of alphabet rubberstamps and tore them out so that they would show up on the background. A lovely layer of snow white glitter paper, mounted on ice blue pearlescent card, and I'm really pleased with this one :D XXX
