As white as snow

Here in the south of the UK we've not had any snow yet this winter, although some may be heading our way this weekend. But of course we still associate snow with winter and Christmas, and today's Christmas card is a snow scene.


The die I used for the row of houses is called Colchester Houses (no, I don't know why - my daughter used to live in Colchester and her house didn't look like that!) and the snowflake die was a magazine freebie a few years ago. The large triangle is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.

I am sharing this with

A beautiful snowy scene Jane, I love the row of houses. I'm hoping the any snow has come and gone by Saturday as I'm off to Kent for a workshop, however if snow prevents me going I'm locking the doors and having a day to myself crafting.

Lots of rain here in Suffolk but no snow as yet, I hope we get some as I love it. This is a beautiful white on white card, love the swiss dots embossing. I too wonder why they are called Colchester houses. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

I'm looking at all these cards and wondering 'why didn't I think of that?' A clever idea and I like your little houses all in white. I'm thankful we don't get much snow though we have had sleet here today.
