Tranquil snowy scene..........

Morning fellow bloggers, here is another card featuring one of the new stamps from Crafty Individuals,such a lovely little snow scene, which I kept very simple by just giving it a wash of Tea Dye distress ink.The word silent night I stamped and embossed on Vellum using CI 446 and the snow cottage scene is CI 463

 I must confess that I haven't been in my craft room for a couple of weeks as I have my Mum living with me and unfortunately she is on end of life, so I have spent the past 10 days sleeping by her side and holding her hand. Three months ago Mum fell and broke her hip and after seven weeks in hospital she went to a nursing home unfortunately they didn't know the meaning of nursing and after a week she was taken back into hospital as she was so poorly, she spent a week there but they couldn't do very much other than give her fluids and antibiotics to fight the infection and because of her dementia, we decided that Mum would be best at my home where we could wrap her in love, but now it is the time that we have to say goodbye, at least all of the family have had that chance to come and say their goodbyes and she is out of pain, asleep and comfortable.

New stamps ........

A couple of weeks ago Crafty Individuals launched a few more wonderful stamps to tempt you, here is a  cards I have made using some of them.

 I am still practising with my copic markers, I kinda just build up layers, I must invest in a some classes as I'm sure there is a lot more to these pens. This card is made using the following stamps CI 465 Festively Ornamental  I used the smaller snowflake stamp to stamp the background and around the sentiment, the poinsettia was coloured and fussy cut out to sit around the frame of the sentiment CI 446 Festively Curly words.
