Swinging in the Snow

Welcome back. I hope everyone is well.

This morning I woke up very early (sparrows fart) to pelting down rain. I did a couple of household bits and pieces and jumped straight into my craft room.

I was inspired by the challenge over at Merry Monday. I haven't had a chance to play there for so long and having my new Lawn Fawn goodies to play with, I had the perfect recipe. 


Here is my card -



I had seen a couple of cards using a swing while on Pinterest so I decided to create my own little fun scene. 

The owl is from the Winter Owl set and the log and sentiment is from Joy to the Woods - both Lawn Fawn. 

The log was a little too short for my owl to sit on properly so I masked off one edge before stamping and then masked off the other edge and stamped it again to create a longer image.

Everything was coloured in with my Spectrum Noir markers.

My Swiss Dots embossing folder creating the snow background and I used a die from the Stitched Hillside Border Die set (Lawn Fawn) for my snow bank. 


Here is the inside of my card -




The challenges I am entering into are -






Thank you so much for looking xx
