Very Punny

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy Birthday dear Sister, Happy Birthday To You.  HUGZ.  This is the sight that met me this morning when I got up

Everything white and hammering down with snow.  That's our garden and the red building is where all the stuff for the animals is.  Rabbits to the left of it, chickens to the right.  Not that the chickens have been out much today.  The ground's the wrong colour!!  There's a fjord usually visible far right and mountains all around, but it's a bit of a white out so you will just have to take my word for it. 

The end of the month and the end of the year!!  Over at STAMPlorations there's a lovely sketch which I used for this card.  Whilst hunting for circles and viewing my STAMPloration stamps I spotted this Sizzix die and thought it would be fun with the STAMPlorations sentiment.  I've used a whole load of my favourite techniques on this card.  There's stamps, and dies, distressing and inking the edges and using masks (for the circles).  I cut the die from MME patterned paper and coloured with Promarkers.  I love how these let the text show through and how you can add shades with the same marker by just adding more colour.  That's my kind of colouring.
