Winter is on the way!

Oh I am so not looking forward to winter this year. 
I used to love winter, cold days, the heater on, snuggling up at night ;). 
Not any more! 
I much prefer the warm summer days and nights now-a-days.

Just Imagine weather so cold that when you go outside in the morning the icy leaves and grass crunch underfoot, last year on one such morning I took some pictures of the ice encrusted leaves and even
a dandelion that had tiny icicles on it. Brrrrrrr!!! 

Here's one of the photo's I took scrapped with some gorgeous D-Lish embellishments.

a printed wooden button, the D-Lish Store has some really pretty 
printed wooden buttons!

And one of the mini-roses which are becoming one of 
my all time favorites. 

Love the doilies too which come in several sizes.
And Washi tape what can I say....
It comes in so many fabulous designs
and great value for money!

I used the 12x12 Crafters Workshop Dandelion stencil with modelling paste, Liquid pearls and
American Crafts 'slick writers' to colour the grass and stems.

Hope you like. :)
Cheers for now.
