Sabine Watching the Snow Fall!

Hello to you all, and has your sunshine disappeared  as mine has?  It has been a glorious morning and now in the last hour it's become overcast as if there is going to be a downpour.

Thank you to everyone who left lovely comments on my last post, especially, the encouraging comments about the stressful situation I find myself in at the moment, all helps me get things into perspective.

Another quiet day for me, Alistair away up yet another mountain, and I hope this time he has remembered his sun protection, last time he came home with such a red face, it looked really sore.  He is always so excited about going away that he forgets important things like sun cream.

I have yet another Christmas card, sorry about that, but this is using a lovely image which is one of my favourites;
Sarah Kay stamp, Sabine Watching the Snow Fall
Coloured with Derwent Pastel Pencils
Brown Memento Ink, for a softer effect
SB Decorative Labels 22
Adorable Scorable card from Hunkydory
First Edition Christmas Vintage Papers
LOTV Sentiment
Brown Seam Binding and large gem, The Ribbon Girl
MB Fabulous Phlox die
Gold gems and Sparkle

I do love the effect of pastel pencils but, I find them quite difficult to use, maybe there is a technique to using them.
Anyway, thats all from me today,
Thanks for visiting, Kate x

Hi Kate, lovely card, great use of your Spellbinder dies too.
I watch BGT by default as my gang love it. Sadly it does become addictive.
Hope you had a good day crafting with the peace and quiet?
Hugs Erika.

Fabulous Christmas card Kate! I use Prisma Pencils and they blend really well especially with some Sansador and a stump! There are lots of tutorials on You Tube which are really helpful. Hugs Susan x

Great card Kate, wonderfully sweet image, great layout and colours.
I read what May said about writing things down. That will be a great help as you often forget what you would want to say on the day. I take it Alistair will be going with you tomorrow.
Hugs, will be thinking about you.
