A winter scene...

Good morning, it's the last Wednesday of the month so we have a Christmas theme at Fab'n'Funky this week- anything goes as long as it's Christmas related. I made a bridge card and coloured up and fussy cut a sweet Mo Manning image- one of my all time faves! The background papers are from a magazine, I thought they went perfectly with this image and it was so quick just to cut them down to fit! The snowy foreground is made by swooping distress ink over a damp piece of card, letting it dry and adding a touch of glitter. I added a die cut lamp post a couple of tiny die cut birds coloured to look like robins and a die cut sentiment.  A card for my Christmas stash which I hoped would be a bit bigger by now...

There's more to see over at Fab'n' Funky where, as always my team have been busy creating some beautiful cards, it would be great to have you play along this week!
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely day
