Craft A Scene January 2013


     Hi, it's me again!  I just love creating scenes, and I finally found some time this morning to play.  I played so long, that I didn't go to work until noon.  Oops!  I am very lucky to pick my own hours, so no worries.  This month the challenge over at the Craft A Scene blog, is called Snowy Cottage.  I pulled out a few Stampscapes stamps, and got busy.

Here is what I used:

Stamps:  Stampscapes- Lakeside Cabin, Rocks 6 small, buck.  My sentiment is Clear Dollar Stamps.  The
snow is made with a Stamps by Judith Stubby.
Inks:  Ranger Distress Inks in assorted colors, Memento Tuxedo Black, Opaque white gel pen, Copic Markers.
Embossing:  Stampendous White Detil
Punches:  Martha Stewart, Stampin Up!
Card stock:  Gina K. Pure Luxury, Bazzill, and Neena

I would also like to include this in the challenge over at The House That Stamps Built, which is to include snow.

     I am pleased, and I hope you enjoy!  Hard to believe we are expecting temperatures near or above 60, later this week.  I don't think that will help people with this nasty flu bug that is gripping the country.  I am praying for all my friends to feel better.

Phenomenal job with this scene. Your are very good at them. I stay away from scenes because I usually get to the end and mess them up. I love the snow and that buck just taking a last look back before running into the woods. They don't get any better than this one, Mary Anne. I'm really glad you found time to play around yesterday morning before heading out the door.

Mary Anne,
This is absolutely fantastic! Great water, reflections and the depth in the trees is awesome. You are going to have to tell me how in the world you did the water like that.
