W is for Winter.

The current letter to use over at the Craft Barn  is W but with a twist. You must use circles on your background. I have chosen Winter as my word. It has certainly felt like it here  today as we have had several showers of hail stones in between sunny spells and the temperature has plummeted again.
My background circles have been created using bubble wrap (now you do all keep it from your packaging don't you? Shame on you Miss Di but thanks ever so!). Cut to page size and inked up with distress ink, simply pressed down on page and a heavy book applied for a few seconds and hey presto circles or in this case sort of snow flakes.

Scene is cut from an old Christmas card  and ribbon and lace from my stash (very old stash). How do I know that ? Well I used to buy my lace and trimmings from down Walthamstow market (East London) and we have lived here in Hampshire for 30 yrs so that is the latest time I could have visited and bought any.
The  W is a freebie downloaded from here.

  3. Fabulous Mrs A! Love the scene and the bubble wrap obviously came in handy :) Funny enough, in the snippets playground 'prize toy box' I have a proper bubble wrap stamp lined up for a future week.

    Hugs, Di xx
