17th January 2012

This month is flying and although we have had a hard frost for the last few mornings, poking their little white heads through  in my garden is a patch of beautiful snowdrops. I hope that this means that spring is on it's way and not snow.
My son and Daughter in law have been sending stunning pictures to my mobile from New York where they are having a holiday, I am not in the least bit envious (I tell lies too :-) )
My latest card I have done for Rainbow Lady's challenge, the title is "The many faces of women"

I have used a cream base card which unfortunately I appear to have cut off when cropping the picture. I have matted with dark brown card. The main image is a wooden stamp that I have had for years, all the other stamped images are from a sheet from Inkilicious. All the images have been stamped and distressed with walnut and old paper distress inks. The background paper with the face is a free download that I acquired years ago, sorry I can't remember where from. The embellishments are lace from my stash and flowers made from the backing paper


  1. Fabulous card Trish, there's a slightly dreamy quality about it.
