THIS IS A VERY SAD DAY!!


Hello Everyone...

I have such a heavy heart today as it is my last EVER post for STAMPFAIRY...

I hope you managed to get over there and get your images at sale price before the doors are closed.

Today I have a busy card that took me quite awhile to make but I really had fun with it..[sorry picture heavy]



It all started with Barry trying to untangle his Christmas tree lights...there were wires and stars all over him and although his tree was a silver tree, he really felt the need for more sparkle.[ don't we all]
So there he was all tangled up when he stopped suddenly as he heard this lovely singing...



So he rushed to the window [die from Pia..thanks Pia] looked out over his Marianne ivy and the  planter box made by me..to see what he could see..


Low and behold..Carol Singers..three of his friends were wrapped up in their scarves and singing their heads off while standing in the cold snow under the golden glow of the street lamp...surrounded by snow covered  trees..



I made Barry's brick house for him, just with pencils and a marker..



A side glance of all the layers...



Another side view as there is a fence tucked in there..and the little bird.

So that's it...

Thanks so much for stopping by and all the wonderful comments you all leave...really appreciate each and every one of them..

Hi Chrissy this is wonderful! What an amazing scene, you are so creative. Love how he is looking out of the window somewhat bemused. There seem to be a few places closing, some because of the new law coming into effect from the EU - they should keep their noses out!! Susan x

So sorry to hear about Stamp Fairy with these new EU laws coming in there may be quite a few digi stores closing their doors, it is all such a shame. Chrissy your story and card fold is totally amazing, wow what a way to end such a successful partnership that you have had with Stamp Fairy, so much beauty and class designer-ship, awesome as always.
