Days of Winter… Tuesday, Dec 6 2016 

For todays card I’ve used up some of the leftover papers from my stash of Pion Christmas designs and  some wonderful Marianne designs dies to create this pretty Christmas card:

pion christmas

I didn’t have quite enough of the paper left to create the design I wanted so I’ve fussy cut the images from it and made the scene from the pieces, it worked out quite nicely in the end,so I’m happy with the final design

For a closer look:


And another:


These papers are so soft and delicate and have such wonderful designs it would be a shame to waste even a little. As you can see this is a great way to use up all those scrap pieces you have been hoarding
