Winter Blues

Good morning to you all 
I hope you are having a good week so far ...
We've had a little snow - not enough to stick and it's been quite cold and dull ... 
It's this time of year after Christmas and New Year have gone, that I long for Spring to come .. I call it The Winter Blues which is the challenge I have come up with for City Crafter this week where I am hosting.
This week we want to see a winter project that must include the colour Blue
Here is your inspiration photo

I saw a tutorial by Nancy Riley on a sponging project which I wanted to try ... although my version is not as good as hers I really like the result ...


I incorporated a die cut by Memory Box in my little winter scene and lots of glitter for the glistening snow


There is only one ink pad used for this ... just a little blue one I had by versa mark and I found that little tree stamp hidden in my box of wooden stamps ...

Our Guest designer this week at City Crafter is our winner from Week 134 Malgorzata Dudzinska ( Margot) ... A very talented lady ... her blog is well worth a visit. This week's winner will also be offered a Guest spot at CCCB ... so please come and join us ... I'd love to see your interpretation of Winter Blues ...

Have a lovely day and stay warm

A fabulous card - wintery but still warm. Love the little houses and all that sparkle.

I think you did a beautiful job Ros! The sky looks so whispy and soft and those glittery snow covered hills make a great backdrop for the little houses and tree. It's wonderful! Hugs!

So tranquil, Ros! Love the glittery hills of snow!

Yes, tranquil is the right word... your card shows one of those perfect winter days where you just want to keep walking in the snow, enjoying the sund and the littery landscape.
