Old book Pages

Morning guys well I reckon many of you are like me,with lots of the white stuff oh wow have we had some snow,with temp falling to minus 16 now that is damm cold,and just as I am sitting here typing oh wow hang on.
I have just had a wee deer in my front garden,just taken a quick photo sorry they are not that great but had to be so quick.

Oh bless how cute is he,
Anyway now for my wee project I had this old book which I have been playing with on and off through the year and last night I decided to make an envelope and a matching notelet I have just inked the paper with distress inks,then stamped using one of the stamps dear Zoe sent me. Then have used Tim's flourish around the edges of the paper. Then just finished off with ribbon and flowers. Then added some glitter to the flowers.
Oh well done Cara for winning strictyly last night so well deserved one amazing dancer.




Those of you who are stuck like me with this weather stay safe and warm and please take care if you have to go out too.
Challenges
allsorts anything goes

Hi there Cheryl

Sorry things have come to this..................

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
