Snow, Pine and Mahogany



GC84- Snow, Pine and Mahogany, is the latest colour challenge over on Gingersnap Creations.I was thinking 'Christmas based' originally but after the week wrapping presents, decorating the tree etc that I've had, I decided to just go vaguely seasonal and a little sombre instead.
The mask to create the flock of birds is by Prima, the compass sign is a new one by Crafty Individuals (CI-294), the tree...well I thought that was Crafty Individuals too but I'm having second thoughts and it may have sneaked into my CI stamp box by mistake- (anyone have any idea?), and the photographic image which is printed onto fabric is by Paper Whimsy.

Thanks for visiting :0) Hope you get a moment to join in with us over on Gingersnap Creations sometime over the next few weeks.

Beautiful, Jo - as always. That tree is fab, whoever it's by. Will be thinking of you at Christmas - it will be painful I am sure, but you will be with family which is the best place to be at times like this.
Love, Helen xx
