 And just like that we were in December!!

So that can only mean one thing, time for our final challenge of 2021 over At A Perfect Time To Craft Challenge Blog. Here is a little inspiration for you

Snow Fun

Sorry if I am boring you with all the snow scenes but I feel like something has finally clicked this year and I can finally colour snow, it was always one of those things that I hated to o before as I was was never happy with the result

No lines snow

 I really wanted to mke a snowy winter scene with some Purple Onion stamps I have. I love Stacey Yacula's designs and feel that they lend themselves to such sweet scenes

I wanted to try to create a scene showing the couple doing their christmas shopping pottering around town. We normally go to the Christmas Market and then potter around York which is our local city but that is of course reserved for next year.
