 Hello everyone,

Back with number two using the panels up...

look what happened, I pulled it all out and started tidying it..

Okay, I cheated, and found some scraps of stripes and spots
 which I added into my makes.

and these tiny pinecones down the bottom of my tub, they are real ones, but not really pinecones, they just look like it, so I snowed them up with gesso, then distress paint as they started to yellow!!

I also got my panels together and snowed them up too..

and that was after I distressed them with my scissors..

Yikes, then found more papers that were already cut into card size panels,
 so distressed and snowed the up too, 
and added sliver stiff lace type mesh ribbon.

 inside and panel ready for decorating..

Lots of layers on this one..

same flowers..

another straw and snowed log.

These bells were silver and I painted them white last year.
and lovely berries in an unusual pink tone.

silver ribbon and those pinecones..

Logs in place...

another LOTV stamped sentiment and cut into small oval this time..

And there we go, the panel had pinecones on this one
but still the flowers worked..

So there go,
Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

A gorgeous card Chrissy, love the layers. Your Daughters dogs escape reminded me of a friends' dog. He was prone to wandering and on this particular day squeezed through the next doors cat flap (he is a labrador!!) ate their food and was too tubby to get back out. Her neighbour was not impressed when she returned to find him in the house!! They moved shortly after!!

Heather said...
