Snowy Day

When issue 211 of Simply Cards & Papercraft landed on my doorstep if contained a stamp set called Alpine Village by Paper Discovery and that jogged my memory about a set of Paper Discovery Stamps I got back in the summer. The Alpine Village contains some of the same stamps from the Travel and Adventure About Town Stamp Set but on a smaller scale.

This would be just perfect for scene building

There is a colouring video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

He looks to be enjoying the snow much more than I was today. I love living rural until I need to commute in this

  1. A lovely little scene Claire and, as always, beautifully coloured. Looks like we have missed the snow down here in Dorset!!

    1. Aww such a shame, we managed to go sledging and my boy wrapped his man parts around a tree...I managed not to laugh initally and then worried as i want grandbabies..

  2. A super card Claire, such a lovely scene.
