Blue and Brown Winter

Good morning everyone, and thanks for joining me this Friday morning. 
Today we have a new Challenge over at the 
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.
Our new theme is 
Blue and Brown (beige ) Winter 
And it is hosted by the lovely , talented , Tone.
Here is what I came up with 

And here is how I made them .
I decided to make a Christmas card , with a matching tag...

I started my card with a piece of Kraft card....sorry but it doesn’t show up well when photographed

Then I created the landscape with a moon mask, some torn paper and blue ink 

Next some stamping using a brown Archival ink pad 

I do love the way the card is coming together 

Next I added some snow , in the form of chunky white embossing enamel . 

Some matting and layering...

And then I added a fabulous little MDF embellishment from Anna Marie designs, along with some ribbon. 

And a little bit of stamping on the envelope.

I then repeated the process to make a matching tag 

This time I added a few extra embellishments ...

I really enjoyed making these..
Thank you Tone for such a great theme....just up my street.

I would love you to go over to the Fussy and Fancy blog and check out the wonderful designs from the rest of the design team 
Speaking of Christmas it is our Christmas party in Cumbria tomorrow..
My festive jumper is hung up ready 
And the chocolates and Christmas crackers are ready to be put in the car.
I am really looking forwards to another great day, crafting with friends 
 Thanks for visiting all 
Take care 
Much love and hugs
