Sheltering Tree - Thankful for You


This picture was taken a few weeks ago when we had some snow and this is Little Hippy and I on our way to school. It's a bit blurred as the snow was falling and it was very cold, and I was trying to press the button on the other side of the phone to take the picture (stupid smartphones!) without dropping it. I think it shows what a happy morning we were having. 

This picture and that morning inspired me to make a wintry card. I love the winter landscape and the changes the weather can bring about. Even though winter scenes are often bleak they have a definite beauty to them. Cold and crisp and a definite feeling of excitement despite the disruption.  

Sheltering Tree, Stampin' Up!

This is actually a card I made Mr Hippy as I wanted to tell him how thankful I am for him. I am equally thankful for my beautiful daughter and the fun times we have together.

It's a monochrome card with a definite winter feel about it, and it was made really simply. It is perfect for the colder part of the year, or for people who love the winter. It is simple stamping and some blending.

I used the gorgeous Sheltering Tree from the (ahem) Spring Summer Stampin' Up! Catalogue - of course with a change of palette this would look like a very different tree!

Thank you for stopping by,
