Forest Scene Christmas Card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? The weather has been lovely. We have spent a lot of time in the garden again. It is good to make the most of it while the weather is so nice. 

I treated myself to three die set from the  new Christmas release from the John Next Door range. They are: Jane's Tree, Sam's Circles and Christmas Time. I used dies from all three of the sets to make this card. 

I used the background die from the Sam's Circles die set. It does cut very nicely.

The scene come with the Sam's Circles die set. The holly wreath was made with dies from the Christmas Time die set. 

 The sentiment came from the Jane's Tree die set. 

We had some good news on Wednesday. Rosie our cow, who lives in France with Katie and Sven, had a calf. Both are doing well. We do like having a cow thought we have never met her. If we can travel next year we might go and stay on the farm. 

I am so pleased I treated myself. All the die sets I bought work so well together. I am looking forward to having another play with them I can see lots of possibilities. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

Have a great weekend

Happy Crafting
