There really are only a couple of sets of stamps that I could use for the Jingle Belles challenge - it had to be Nordic Winter and a bit of Nordic Spring too! I started off by cutting a mat of Real Red card (just the perfect shade) and a smaller white panel. I embossed the top of the white card with snowflakes and stamped a selection of the border stamps across the bottom of the panel. I added some grey and silver ribbon to the panel and attached it to the card. I die cut a pretty doily from some charcoal grey satin metallic card (see the grey heart in the box) and added a sweet little bird on top (again, there's a bird in the box). I finished off with a simple sentiment stamped in grey. I made a couple of mats for the inside; stamped the large cross stitch star from the "Secret Set" (second impression) and a fun sentiment. You can just about see the star in this photo!!
I stood on my door step about 20 minutes ago and took a couple of photos of the fir tree that I can see from my office window (looking at it right now!). The tree is covered in snow and ice, but it's already dripping as the temperature is 1°C and expected to get to about 9°C by mid afternoon - all the snow will melt away :)
You can just about see across the road - it's very foggy! That's all for now. See you soon.
