Winter Wonderland

Well we didn't get away with it. Merseyside is sheltered by the Pennines, but last night/this morning we had some of the white stuff. We have been really lucky compared to some places over the country. It does look nice I must admit, so I had to go out with my camera to take a few photos. I can't abide spiders but how beautiful do their webs look, and our half finished water feature looked nice. Hope this weather doesn't last into the new year as the forecasters are predicting, I'm a big wimp and absolutely hate having to drive in these conditions.

Cupcake Craft Challenge 119 - Light it Up

This weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge wants to see a candle on your project. I love this Lili of the Valley stamp I've used, and it is actually called Christmas Candle. The papers I've used are Papermania Henbury Lane. I didn't want to add too much to my card as this paper is gorgeous. I used flower soft on her coat and scarf and some glamour dust to look like she is standing on snow, and used some glossy accent on the candle flame. The gorgeous poinsettia is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
