 Hello everyone,

Time for Christmas card # 21.. and this one started with a picture I fine, gosh, years ago, and have used it once or twice at Christmas, but this time I had a new die to play with and when this picture popped up, I knew, exactly what I wanted to do, doesn't mean it work like in my head, but it came out pretty darn close, and I was happy..

First I had to die cut and figure this out, not that hard
but took a bit of time..

I added my own details here and there, like the wheel caps.

Then cut a tree....nope, too small.

Mmmm....too big, now what?

Cut it's bum off....perfect.

This is the picture I was playing with, help yourself, click, right click, save.

So added my card and tree...

Snow banks...but a bit boring so dressed them up and the tree..

with snow...lots of flower soft snow.

looking better, but not enough, we need more snow..

Whoop whoop, that took care of that..I all but buried that cart..

but still pretty flat..oh, 
apart from the pinecones, that blew mailing off the chart.

nearly there..

I love working with these new pinecones, 
so easy to add ice and snow onto too..

Needed a sentiment, so stamped and embossed

Silver on black..


I had fun doing this one and will use the cart again for all seasons really..

thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow with # 22..getting near the end..

Hi! I'm going to use 1 comment space for 2 of the blogs that you shared your masterpiece with--MTTC and FQCCCB! Thanks for sharing your marvelous wintery country Christmas card at both blogs! I've got a die for a wheelbarrow that your card's giving me thoughts to load with pine branches or mistletoe! Thanks for that bit of inspiration! :) Becca
