The first few days of December have been very chilly and the frosts have been deep and crisp, with clear blue skies too. It's perfect festive weather for me. I love seeing the frost on the leaves in my garden
and my pots. The violas are such plucky plants and their little heads were bowed over. They will perk right up despite the weather. Underneath my bulbs are sleeping away.
My primula should be fine too
My studio has been shut up for the winter now and my crafting continues indoors.
I am hoping all the hedgehogs are fast asleep unlike the one on my card for today.
I wanted to create a snowy scene with my Lavinia stamps and it features one of their lovely fairies and a sweet hedgehog.
I decided that it could be snowing stars instead of snow in my little magical scene.
The background is distress oxides.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges;

It is for sale down at Dotty's Tea House, Carshalton High Street.
Just to give a little heads up; if you live near Coulsdon in Surrey, Dotty's has opening a 2nd venue called Dotty's Tea Garden.
..and yes my cards will be for sale there too. I am hoping to visit the Tea Garden very soon and will share some photos when I do. Exciting times!
Thanks so much for stopping by, particularly at this very busy time of the year.
Bye for now,
