Nordic Pines

Good morning people of the blog-o-sphere!! How windy was it for you at the beginning of the week?

To tell you the truth, people of the north east blew it all out of proportion (excuse the pun..), as we didn't have it half as bad, nay, quarter as bad as people on the south west coast. Wind speeds nai on 100mph - CRAZY!

I hope this post finds you all safe and warm!!

It's time for me to provide a little inspiration for ya using products you can pick up at My Mum's Craft Shop. Let's go..

So this girl, is the adorable Birdie Kiddo from Stampendous. The expression on her face melts my heart. I wish a Robin would come land on my hand so I could have a chat!! She's been coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and I've added a touch of Frosted Lace Stickles to the fluffy bits of her hat, coat and gloves - more for texture than glitter.

I've added the smallest cluster of three snowflakes from the MFT Snowflake Splendor set with Summer Sky Memento ink around the image before die cutting her with a circle.

So my paper is from a new collection by Bazzill Basics - Nordic Pines. I love them. It's my first pack of Bazzill papers and I have no idea why I waited so long to buy them - they're so thick and luxurious. Gorgeous colours and designs. Yum!! I've paired them up with some pink cardstock, some pink ribbon and a button to make this card a little more 'girly'. 

For a finishing touch I die cut some snowflakes with the MFT Let it Snow dies from vellum and attached them with some dark pink gemstones from The Hobby House. These dies have to be amongst some of my most used! I LOVE snowflakes and they're perfect for those Christmas creations!

Don't forget to head over to the My Mum's Craft Shop blog to get daily inspiration.
