Sheltering Tree ~ Part 4 Winter

Good evening all,
Today is the last part of my 4 part Sheltering Tree series; Winter. I'm hoping to take better photographs of the next set of projects because I won't have Little Hippy with me (she's now gone home) and I won't have to rush!

Today Mr Hippy and I have been for a walk around Needham Market. I am trying to build my stamina and be as active as possible as I slowly get better. Little and often is working well!

Lesser Celandine, Ficaria Verna

On our walk we saw lots of lovely flowers, but namely lesser celandine (ficaria verna) and wood anemone (anemone nemorosa). I love this time of year. The appearance of celandine is regarded by many as a harbinger of spring, but what is really confusing is that the hawthorn was flowering! Many folk consider the hawthorn flowering to be the first sign of summer - it has certainly been very mild and the daffs also flowered early this year...

No doubt I will have to make some flower-themed projects soon. I love flowers! 

Today I also got some pictures developed so that I could start Project Life®, which I will be doing this week. Project Life® is an ultra-simple and stylish way of memory keeping - a bit like scrapbooking but quicker and doesn't involve tons of supplies. You can order Project Life® goodies through Stampin' Up! (ie through me!) I shall post up my creations this week but you can find out more here

Ok, so here is today's project: 

Sheltering Tree, Stampin' Up!

All the Stampin' Supplies are listed in the ticker below - again, I promise to have slightly better pictures in the coming week!

Back soon,
