Christmas Forest!

Good Evening All,
I hope you are well and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine today, boy were we hot here in old Inversneckie. When I got up early in the morning to let Teallach in it was pretty cold, so a bit later when going to the doctors, I had on socks, boots and a sweater, by the time I came out from my appointment it was boiling hot. Mustn't complain though, it will disappear all too soon. I just hope the boys are having the weather where they are.

Just a short post tonight so here is my card,
Another Chocolate Baroque stamp set, and embossed with Wow Copper Embossing Powders and then a touch of Creative Expressions Metallic Watercolour Paints, Snowflakes are also Embossed with Wow in Gold. Crafter's Companion Sentiment in Wow Red, but unfortunately not showing up well. Gold Gilding Wax around the edges of card, Gold Centura Pearl card and a coloured washed card underneath that, can't see it though.  
I've used a Winter fancy border whilst editing my photo, so the trees and deer are not part of the card, just in case you wondered.

Thanks so much for your kind comments on my last card, I appreciate each and every one of them.

Cheerio for now, and take care,

Hello Kate ... Wow! I just LOVE your stunning card.
Reminds of the "Enchanted Forest" at Pitlochry.
This weather is wonderful even if it is rather cool first thing.
Yesterday we managed to reach 20c here, better than we had all summer.
Have a great day

Hi Kate,
what a wonderful Christmas card.
I love the fab scene on it.
Wonderfully designed as usual.
Isn't it a pity when the camera doesn't play it's part, and show all the wonderful work involved in the creation of it.
I some time look at my cards on the blog and think I wish people could see them in the flesh as sometimes the camera just doesn't do them justice, and I'm quite sure lots of bloggers feel the same about theirs too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Kate
Wow, lovely and dramatic in the black.
You did have me puzzling if it was a border die or stamped for the deer and trees lol!
Its been a lovely few days here too and long may it continue. Hope you are watching John with the watercolour palettes.
Best wishes.
