Dreaming of better weather

 Hi, hope your all getting back into your crafting. I'm trying to keep up with my card making schedule for January. This year I have about 73 Birthday cards to make plus about 75 Christmas cards. I decided to try and keep organised this year if possible. I would also like to try and join in with a couple of challenge blogs this year. Thats something I haven't done before. I don't know if I'll manage it with working and minding my darling granddaughter everyweek. But I'm going to have a good try.
Today I heard it was going to snow again and I sat dreaming of better weather, so here's my card. I used a stamp by Sheena Douglas and coloured it with distress inks. My BP was a free one from a magazine and a Elusive Image one. The small tree is a minature from Nature's Beauty from Crafty Individuals. The Sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the valley. I also used a spellbinders die and added some bling.


  1. Can't wait for the sun, doesn't hsve to be all that hot..just sunny... lovely card Chris. Hope you manage to keep organized with the card making. I always keep meaning to have a go at more challenge blogs but never make it and I'm retired!

  2. Hi there Chris, lovely card and I love your intention and even more understand how difficult it is to have a go at all you want to do. Good luck with that LOL. Life has a tendency to get in the way:0) xxx

  3. This is totally gorgeous Chris, lovely watercolouring.
    Challenge suggestion: make the cards you like and then look at something like the Feline Playful blog where loads of challenges are listed, see what it fits - best of both worlds LOL


  4. A lovely card Chris - I o e trees so this one is right up my street. Hope you manage to enter a few challenges - it's fun but beware - it can become addictive.
