Frosty Trees!

Hello to Everyone I hope you are all well and enjoying your day.
Thank you for all your lovely comments and visited, I really do appreciated it as I'm sure like me you are busy. I would have never have believed how busy retirement could have been so busy, but it is, but the good thing is that I can choose what I want to be busy with.

This is just going to be a short post as I'm off soon to see to Milo, and as luck would have it the rain has just started, now this must be the first rain here for a while, there are some lovely big dark clouds. Lots of frost in the garden in the mornings so it's pretty cold.

Here is my card
I've used a beautiful stamp from Chocolate Baroque, Trees, this was one of their AYOS stamps last year. Embossed with WOW EP, then shaded with Teal Memento ink and ink Dusters.
Background is inked with various blue shades of Memento Inks and Ink Dusters, then Winter Bough from Inkylicious embossed with Wow EP, then just a few embellishments.

This is for the CB challenge and here are the colours to follow;
That's me for now, I will be around to look at your lovely creations this evening, I've got a bit of time as Alistair is out at his music group.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

What a perfect colour for a Winter card, I think I can feel a chill just looking at it Kate ;) I chose 'Trees' as this month's challenge as most of us crafters have a few tree stamps and this one is a beauty, and not one that I've seen before. It looks just perfect on the lovely background that you've created. Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Sandra X
