Snow Scene

Hello to all the busy, crafty people out there in blogland.

I feel as if a huge weight has been lifted from our shoulders, as John's medical 
negligence case was all 'done and dusted' in Sydney earlier this week. For 
more than 2 1/2 years we have experienced almost constant stress.

For the past few months I have managed to have spasmodic sessions in my craft
room, and by breaking my own rule of only creating 'one-of-a-kind' cards, I 
have managed to finish the 54 cards that I mail or personally deliver.

Hopefully I can now try to get into the spirit of Christmas, 
decorating the house, cooking, and shopping.

This card was not a production line creation, although to save time I did use a topper 
from a sheet I bought several years ago at a craft show in England. It did 
however take a fair amount of my time because I was rather 'out of practice'.

A close up look at the wintery spray I made from various die-cuts,
recycled Christmas decorations, and some tiny conifer cones from
our trees in one of our paddocks back on our farm.

A small section of the house on the topper.
