Winter Swirls

Hi Dahlings 
Well December is tumbling down ,oh how I love all the build up to Christmas .
I am of to Poland Thursday Very Early in the Morning for  4 day break ,they have Snow at the moment ,I think it's cold here ,but think it's even colder there ,
For this card I have used all Clarity Stamps ,not sure what they are called because I have put them in a big folder and lost my list :( 
Gemini Die Lyra from Sue Wilson Range 
I thought the Die went so well with the Snow Drifts .
Enjoy the rest of your week .
See you next week .
Bye for now

Hi Dahlings 
Well what can I say about Oysters Retreat at Hellidon Lakes Daventry .
plenty of different crafting from Brushos Paints with Eileen Godwin .
Colouring with Hellen  Pierce using Penny Black Stamps .
Die Cutting and Flower making with me .
And a Christmas Hat comp .and they made some lovely Hats a lot of work in all of them ,in my eyes everyone was a winner .
For my class on the Saturday they made a box with a tag ,the tag could be taken of the box and put up like a card 
The Sunday Class I used a template that has be retired and used S.B Layered Poinsettia coloured in using metallic Pan Pastels
