Little Cottage in the Snow

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

It's time for a new challenge at CAS Christmas

My sweet friend Trina is hosting this month and she chose

I fell in love with this stamp at the retreat when I used it for this foiled card.

Of course I had to find this stamp!

I think I'll get lots of use out of it and my friends will get to use it
in my class this weekend.

This is such a simple card.  I inked the stamp with Brushed Corduroy
Distress Ink and stamped.  A little touch up with a damp waterbrush on the
cottage and the hill behind it and a bit of marker for the windows and door
and a cozy cottage scene was done.

Doesn't it make you want to snuggle go in and sit in front of the fire
with a cup of hot tea, coffee or hot chocolate?

I'll hope you'll check out the challenge and see what our fabulous Design Team
and our Guest Designer Bobby have done to inspire  you.
Then join us with your warm and cozy CAS Christmas card at

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

That is such a gorgeous stamp! I have to agree it makes a beautiful card especially using that technique. Now I have to have that one too (sigh). My wish list now costs as much as a house!

Beautiful! And yes, I want to snuggle up in a blanket, sit by the fire, and drink hot cocoa all whilst watching the snow falling outside! (ok well that's all in my head)

A small hut in the snow ... I immediately think of a hut in the mountains ... Winter in the mountains is beautiful, and you managed to capture on this card this magical charm.
