Winter Scene

I've finally found time to make a card after about one and half weeks. That's a long time for me.  I guess the time of making my favorite cards is over, Christmas. I am soon to be in need of a wintry birthday card.

Sis and I were on a shopping spree this past summer and I found some of these stamps in a scrapbook store and have been wanting to use them for a while....sooooo, now is the time.

I used four stamps (listed in my recipe below) and added sparkles to my water which aren't showing. Ugh! I have used several inks to sponge the snow, sky, and to stamp the trees and water/fence image.
Oh, at the last minute, I decided to add the bunny. The sky has water color paint for snow.

Hope you're all ready for Christmas as it is going to be here very soon. I've had my dinner party and can now relax a bit.

My card was made also for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. It is featuring the work of Birgit/Biggan. If you haven't seen her blog or gallery, you really need to check it out. What fabulous, creative work!!! This the card I cased. Her card has the trees, night sky, and snow as does mine. I have a rabbit instead of a snowman. What??????? LOL How could I not use a snowman? I know you're wondering.
