 Hello everyone,

I'm hostess over at LITTLE RED WAGON  this week and the theme I chose was " CUT IT OUT" - use dies cut for Christmas/Winter..easy peasy..

I started my day off with die cutting, trees, church, house, deer, snowbanks..

Such a great time, Netflix playing something but I had no idea..

These little houses strips from Amazon, they were a bit tricky to get them to settle behind the snow banks..

Got there in the end...

Used a lovely soft grey cardstock for my background sky and splattered it..

Glued on the the houses first and then the tree line...
with the sweet little church in front...

The I had a bright idea to draw stepping stones leading up to the church so the villagers could get to church more easy through the trees...which are not there yet but they are coming..

And then filled those drawn gaps with Nuvo drops stone, they dry gritty.. 

Yuk, didn't like them but was not going to start all over again..
It's hard to get this stuff out of the bottle and I should have shoved it down my bra for an hour and warmed it up, they work better warm, but just didn't think until too late..

Never mind, ploughed on  and glued the trees and little Deer in place..

And added a very small snowbank in the front with the sentiment stamped..

So there go..

Pop on over and link up your die cut Christmas/Winter projects HERE
Would be great to see you there..

And a pretty picture, a vase of flowers, out of my garden which contains more weeds than anything else, but as long as they flower they can stay..

My red Alstroemeria and blue agapanthus..ha ha ha, I bet the school kids this year, they usually walk passed a pull the heads off, they cannot help themselves..

Thank so much for stopping by..

As always, a fabulous and detailed creation, I love it. I really laughed at the thought of stuffing it into your bra to warm it up, too funny! Thanks for the laughs! Have a great day! Hugs, Valerie

Stunning scene, Chrissy. Love to see the making of. You always inspire me, but always lack of time.
Beautiful flowers in the vase. I love blue agapanthus so much. Mine are done now. Will have to wait till next year.

WOW Chrissy you out-did yourself my friend, this is fabulous, all the little details covered, even the stepping stones which do look good, its a piece of art, you should frame it and bring it out every Christmas.
Your flowers are beautiful what a gorgeous colour, everything here is now fast asleep, apart from tree leaves which fall at a rate faster than a speeding car at times..haha.xx

Chris said...

You have created such a lovely peaceful scene with your fab die cuts Chrissy, I will remember your very helpful tip about warming up the stone drops first!
The flowers are beautiful- well done for getting them to before the kids did this year!

Such a fabulous card, Chrissy! The little scene is so peaceful and serene. I'd love to walk that stone pathway to Christmas morning service. And beautiful flowers from your garden too! Everything is covered in snow here. It will be months until I see flowers growing again!
