Sheltering Tree and not so White Christmas!

Yesterday I decided to make some quick Bohemian Borders thank you cards, which I was going to show you today, but then oops! This happened instead:

I had a sudden curiosity about mixing the trees from White Christmas with Sheltering Tree and giving them a good old summer vibe!

I propped the bicycle against one of the trees as a nice focal point but it made me giggle - there wouldn't be a chance of me cycling to this idyllic spot as Eva pup would either have hidden from, or eaten the bike, one or the other!

Stamps, inks and sponges is my idea of a happy crafting session :) How about you?

This was only supposed to be a snatched 3 minute crafting session but, as I was sponging away, Eva came up and sat in front of me with a look that clearly said: "It's definitely my walkies time - I know it is!" She allowed her gaze to fall on my crafting table. "Of course, I could always find something to chew if you'd rather...!" She is actually usually very good around my crafting things, although we did recently have a difficult moment with a new spool of lace trim which proved too much for her self control!

Now, are you looking for birthday inspiration at all? Because, if you are, the Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team has got you covered! We'll all be showing off our birthday ideas tomorrow, using gorgeous new goodies from the annual catalogue - see you then!


  1. Well, that is a super clever idea with fantastic results!!! I love it!

  2. Er, my crafting heaven is inks, stamps, sponges and Gesso bubbles!

    Love the look of your card and a good idea to mix it up a little with the different sets.

    Perhaps Eva wanted some lace for her collar?

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  3. Lovely card Vicky and Eva sounds so cute-I can just imagine her with that spool of lace! xx

  4. Gorgeous card as always Vicky! great idea to combine the two sets, both of which I've not got. Yet... xxx
