Guest Designer for Sisterhood of Snarky Stamper 'O' for Outdoors challenge

A bit of fun this month as Edna moves "Outdoors" and with me as the invited guest designer for

I do love the outdoors and have spent the past few mornings in my garden giving it a tidy up and make over and for me there is nothing nicer than a stroll anywhere away from the house to refresh my mind ( and exercise) - so I can get back to my desk and the crafts I love

I had this outdoor tree scene already stamped in my stash so thought to use it as the background through a window card in my old stash.  Hardest part was deciding on a snarky sentiment.
  • stamped the crafty objects in grey ink and coloured my images with coloured pencils and fussy cut these out.  Coloured the scene too
  • found some DP to use as the table top and matching card strip for the sill
  • blending ink over the textured card surface and attached all the elements
  • my Word doc is working so had to dig out my lettering set and stamped the sentiment, trimmed and edge them in black

Hope you can join in the fun at 
Thanks for visiting,   have a Wonderful Creative weekend, cheers
