WINTER Birthday Wishes ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #38}

Back safe from Durban (South Africa) after presenting another Durban Scrap Day on Saturday.  It was great seeing all the scrapping ladies again and a huge thank you to all your loyal support over the years.  Also thank you to my dear friend Michelle for her always loyal and unselfish assistance.  I had the privilege of flying in a brand spanking new Boeing 737-800 yesterday which only had 40 hours flying on the clock and only has been in the skies for 2 days.  It still smelt like a new car.  Always good to be back home and this week its finalising everything for the two Scrapbooking Days I am presenting here at my home studio on Saturday and Sunday.

This week our theme for Challenge #38 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is  Let It Snow. I used the  Snowy Cabin image from QKR Stampede Store.  You can find it here.   Love this scenic image.

This time I tried a landscape shaped tent card and quite like the unusual orientation. I left the image uncoloured after printing it on pink cardstock.  Then I printed the image again on basic grey designer paper and cropped some of the trees which I added to the original printed image on the pink cardstock.  The corners were created with another paper folding technique.  And of course, a girl cant have enough bling.  The sentiment is freebie from Hannelie the Desert Diva.

I really do hope you will play along with our Let it Snow challenge this week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.
