Not a card

Hello my lovely crafty buddies, long time no see!! Hope you are well and keeping warm!! My little bit of Dorset is bathed in sunshine as I write this so I daresay we will be in for another frosty night.

Anyhow, I have a wall hanging to share with you today. I felt like creating something less "flat" so decided to make something for me with lots of dimension ...and postage doesn't matter because it is staying right here!!

Here it is...

I had a bit of a "winnage" at the beginning of the month and the fabulous prize was a spend at Tiddly Inks
so this was the first outing for the lovely Winter Wryn. I coloured her, as usual with my Promarkers to match the lovely paper from Digichick (I can lose days drooling over the fabulous papers!!). The mulberry roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts (it's been months since I've dusted off the flower basket!!) and the little wooden snowflake was a magazine freebie years ago!!


I then tethered a kraft snowflake with twine and made a rosette with a gingham scrap and used a little die to mount the sentiment on to. Finally to add a little weight I attached a snowflake charm to the end of the twine and added a hanger using some seam binding ribbon.

I have found some challenges to play along with
