Digging Ditches and Hailstorms

Hello.  Welcome.  Spent the afternoon digging out a drainage pipe that had given up the battle against all the rain we have had this year.  Maybe the 112mm that came down yesterday was it's death knell!!  We only had to endure a couple of hail showers and it was good exercise.  Ho ho ho.

Over at Paperartsy Anneke made a beautiful winter wonderland scene stamping and embossing white patterns on white papers and using them to make trees so I thought I case Tracey's cute xmas tree tag using Anneke's technique.  I used various white papers and white powders.  The little tree at the front is WOW white puff powder, the middle one is Stampendous fine white and the back one is Anita's white, which has a distinctively cream look.  I used small stamps from Paperartsy HPXM02 and a Sizzix tree die.  The tag and sentiment are both Stamplorations dies.  I added a white lace tie.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
