Sneaky peeky Number 2 a la Sheena

Here is my second post for the stamps to be aired on Sunday 22nd at 9am and 12am.

I notice no one has yet posted any flower cards so I thought I would get in first with this one.

SHEENA 21.11.10 Snowdrops

I made an easel with the Marianne die and the Crafters Companion snow white Centura pearl card. I also have some matching paper, which I stamped the image onto and coloured in with promarkers. I love snowdrops, they give a hint of warm days to come and cheer up even the most miserable winter day. The sentiment comes from the same stamp sheet and is so appropriate for these flowers. The butterflies are resin ones I have had in my stash since Adam was a lad.  The little flower was a charm and boy was it hard work snapping the bail off of it!

I am entering this into a few challenges.

Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog – Anything Christmassy/Winter

The Shabby Tea Room – What are you thankful for – I am thankful that the winter does not last forever as I hate the cold and the dark nights depress me, snowdrops epitomise this beautifully for me.

Creative Card Crew – Let’s give Thanks – For the same reason as above

Delightful Challenges – Baby It’s Cold Outside

By the way, here are a series of ‘tidy shots’ cos I just couldn’t go to bed last night leaving my craft room looking so awful, and I have in the past accidentally thrown something away because the mess pile became so large that something useful got gathered up with the rubbish and dumped. Indeed last night I spent a jolly hour playing ‘hunt the Big Shot textures embossing mat’, which had snuck itself under a set of drawers….. hmmm I think that the invible (her way of saying it, not a typo) man of my Daughter’s youth could be back.

She always said it was the Invible Man, and I used to quote this poem to her

When I was walking down the stair

I saw a man who wasn’t there,

He wasn’t there again today,

Oh how I wish he’d go away!

Grrr can anyone tell me how to make Windows Live Writer NOT put line breaks between carriage returns!

Right I am off to play sort the hotfix gems. I must be mad 3 x 1440 to be sorted into separate colours ……. wish me luck!
