Snowy Scenes

Hello! 
How are you all? It's been awhile since I posted...
 It's been a busy week here catching up with friends and of course I was at the hospital on Monday for injections in my neck to ease the Arthritis... Honestly I was really dreading it but I survived Lol!
I had to have 3 joints in my neck injected on both sides with steroids and for those nurses amongst you, you will no doubt realise what I didn't... Each  one took 3 needles so in total that was 18 needles!!
But I'm feeling fine and the steroids have put my eczema into remission which a brilliant side effect for me... No itching!!

 It's been so dark and wild here - today is a little brighter but yesterday it was so wet and windy and it looked like night time all day....Trying to take photos of my cards has been a nightmare...

I'm expecting my brother shortly with my great niece Sophia so I have a little time to share some more cards. I thought I was all finished with Christmas cards but apparently not, my husband asked for some cards for his old work colleagues so I did a few snowy scenes


The photos are still not very good but hey ho...


So far we haven't had any snow where I am but boy it's been so cold!


For the most part the cards are done with ink blending, stamping and some glitter
 


Well, I've no doubt that you are all busy this time of year so I'll wish you a beautiful day and I hope to catch up with you soon and see what I've missed on your blogs 
Many thanks to everyone that has sent me a gorgeous handmade Christmas card too!

Hugs

Both of these cards are absolutely GORGEOUS Ros!! Love the soft scene's you've created with the snowy hills and tree's and the small silhouette images...just beautiful!! :0)

These are gorgeous Ros and hubby's former work colleagues will love these pretty scenes. I know what you mean about being busy with this and that, and some days I feel as though I have done a lot but achieved nothing...lol. x

Your last minute cards for you husband are so beautiful and so very pretty Ros. The little scenes you've created are unique and so creative. Love the little bit of bling, the stamping and the blending. The falling snow and the falling little stars are wonderful too x.
Sorry about your needles Ros and wow you had a lot! Hope it brings some relief? x

Your snow mounds look so soft and beautiful - lovely scenes. My partner asked me for some cards ( quite specific ones with buses on!) just on Friday. Do they not see Christmas coming??!!

Wow you've made beautiful snowy scenes on these cards Ros. I love the blending on the backgrounds. The beautiful silhouette stamps look lovely in combination with the trees. I love them! We had a little snow today here in Holland :)
Greetings Miranda

Beautiful cards, Ros, I can't believe that you think the photography wasn't so good. Much better than mine. Sorry to here about your neck...I just hope you did not feel the injections...18...OUCH! Have a wonderful Sunday!

You have a very artistic touch with stamps and ink, Ros. These snowy scenes are gorgeous! Love how you have the stars hanging from the branches on the deer card. Magical! Dark, rainy days here, too, and forecast for the whole week. Not good for pictures at all! I'm glad to hear the shots were worth the trouble and I hope you're pain and itch free for a good long while!

Christine Alexander said...

Ros, they are all such beautiful winter scenes. I love the low lying branches that frame the images.

Greta said...

You truly are an artist, my friend! Love your snowy scenes--should be framed! I'm having the same trouble getting pictures as it's dark all day, but at least we aren't too cold. Hoping the injections give you relief! Happy Holidays!

Darnell said...

You create the most amazing snowy scenes, Ros! There is so much depth in the way you stamp your foreground branches and then more trees on the background hills! Perfection! Of course the texture of the added "snow" dots makes it even better!

I'm so sorry you had to endure all those needles in your neck. Oof! You are a real trooper my friend! But I'm very glad they can do something to relieve the pain. Enjoy the visit with your brother and Sophia! 🎄Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell

Glad you got thru the needle procedures ok, Ros. You are one tough cookie! Sure hope they calm down the pain in your neck and great that you got a side effect of no itchy skin:-)

Your last Christmas card snow scenes are Gorgeous, my friend. We are sure enjoying your beautiful Christmas card with the beautiful watercolored sky and die cut silhouette buck. Thank you so much.

Wishing you a pain free and creative New Year. Hugs..Nancy

Beautiful snowy scenes, Ros! Love the silhouettes with the deer, child and dog! So peaceful and beautiful! Wonderful gold shiny stars hanging from the tree, too! I hope the neck injections give you relief very soon! Take care, hugs!!

Oh, Ros, it sounds very painful but I'm really glad that you thru the needle procedures! You were brave and I'm sure it will be good for you in the long run.
What beautiful snowy scenes you created! The soft sponged snow hills and the snowfall are especially gorgeous! Love the square design!
Have a wonderful time with your brother and Sophia!

Beautiful snow scene! Your projects are always so inspiring!

Barbara said...

Thanks to your husband - love to see more Christmas cards... and such beauties, too! Glad to hear you survived the injections but it does sound horrific. Hope they continue to help!

Tracy said...

These are so beautiful Ros. The balance between each part is perfect. Soft inking, sweet silhouettes, and just a touch of glimmer. So pretty. Glad to hear you itching has stopped. Hope the neck pain does as well.
