Change of Seasons

We really live in such an amazing world.....
nature wise that is! So full of wonders where ever you look, the setting sun, frosty mornings, spring bulbs starting to peer their delicate faces and one of my favourites - the bare trees!!
In thinking of that I held a stamp-a-stack last Thursday with the theme of winter. I wanted to capture some of Winter in a card.... how would you do that? Layers came to mind firstly, after all we need them to keep toasty. Then warm colours need to take part, chocolates and reds are wonderful company.
I also like to reminisce about the change of seasons,Springs blossom beauty, Summer's green glow, Autumns leaf delight and of course Winters bareness.

The night was a cold outside but inside - hearts were warm with laughter, smiles and conversation with the other wonderful stampers in the room. What a truly special night it was! All thanks to the fabulous ladies who came!!

Hugs and smiles to each one of you this Winters eve

Hello!! How are you doing, my friend? Are the kiddos growing like weeds? I'm sure they are! I love both your cards! They are so different but I love them both dearly! Hope all is well! Hugs from Denmark!
