Winter landscape


It was lovely last week to stay indoors and see all your warm and cosy tags.  I’m really looking forward to receiving my little bundle of Christmas Swap Tags.  I think that will be one of the most exciting parcels to receive this year; they will be such a complete surprise. 
There’s no snow here in Dorset, just cold and frosty   (but I can dream!)
I used wallpaper as a base – the paper has white grasses and seed heads that look like they have been touched by Jack Frost.  I embossed this with a snowflake frame embossing folder.     I attached a photo of the Oak trees in the field at the end of my garden.  The longvgrass in the shade of the trees is frosty just like the paper. In between the embossed snowflakes I stuck sequins and some snowflake punches.
On the other side I’ve just added a few snowflakes in between  the grasses and then finished the tag with a silver ribbon.


The tree on the left of the photo is the one that Bailey likes to climb up! Every morning she zooms round the field like a Spitfire to see off the crows, then she runs up the tree and barks when she gets to the top to make sure there are no birds or squirrels in her field, then runs down again! What a nutcase!  Here is a photo of her up the tree. 
Looking forward to seeing your wintry landscapes.  Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments,
Bye for now,
Jane xx
