We went on a Bear hunt

Tee hee no not a real one but over the holidays we have our son's gorgeous dog Bear to stay and when Daisy and Co were up we all went out to the local woods for a fantastic long walk. The sun shone and walking briskly kept us warm. Bear just loved it, running ahead and herding us along.

I promised I would be back with some photos so here we are
 He would race ahead and then come back to tell us to keep up

 My son in law threw a stick for him for ages and Bear fetched and dropped it endlessly

My Hb and I have been on another lovely walk with him today, I'll share some photos of that one soon.
My card today was inspired by the wonderful trees in the woods.
The focal is stamped using my scenic Inkiliscious stamp...such a versatile stamp as it worked so well for Christmas cards too. The cloud sentiment is Clearly Besotted. The dies are a mix of Memory Box and  J Sheen. The DP is First Edition.

My card was made for the following challenges;

The ribbon girl 1/3 January card challenge
Pixie's snippets playground #262 I used snippets of card for all my die cuts
The Artistic stamper 1/3 anything goes
Penny Black and More 1/3 anything goes
Allsorts 2/3 something new my new are the DP..a brand new First Edition pad bought for Christmas
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Simon says stamp Monday start afresh My DP is brand new and this is the very first sheet I have used.
Dies R us 1/3 anything goes
A bit more time to craft 1/3 anything goes

Thanks for stopping by today and for your lovely comments. I will be back on Thursday with my 2nd DT piece for Country View....there is a love theme going on with it...

Bye for now,

  1. Its great to get out for a walk at this time of year, isn't it. Gorgeous Bear certainly seemed to enjoy his walk...so good for dogs to get their legs stretched!
    Love your beautiful tree card! :)
    Happy Tuesday my friend,

  2. Happy New Year, dearest Jane and thank you for the beautiful card you sent me! I haven't been online very much over the festive period as I've been enjoying a bit of family time, plus we had my hubby's cousins down from Scotland for New Year which was lovely, as the last time they got to visit was at our wedding 10 years ago!
    I love your forest inspired card and tend to often like crafts with trees on. I'm looking forward to maybe doing a bit of sewing this year and hopefully will get to do some more craft fairs, though they're usually on a Saturday, which limits my chances with workshops and wanting to go off in Daisy the campervan!
    Hope everyone is well with you and that the pregnancy is going well too! Love and hugs, and all the very best for a happy and healthy 2017 for you and yours! Lisa xx

  3. Fabulous card with the lovely inspirational photos.
    Thank you for sharing over at Penny Black and more, Happy New Year;-))m

  4. What a great walk you had.. you're lucky Bear is well-behaved and can be trusted off-leash. Our Cairn terrier can never be let off as he would bolt and never return. Last time he did that a coyote nearly killed him. Great card!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Lovely photographs, and there is nothing like a good winter walk in the woods! Jane x

  6. Lovely photographs! Your card is gorgeous too.

  7. I love your pictures and the ones with the mist brings to mind some Moody, haunted place of beauty. I love your card with minimal colour yet it is vibrant. Your doggie is so cute

  8. Gorgeous inky car. Love your pretty scene.

    Those photos look wonderful . Love the look of the sun through the trees.,
