Winter Woods for As You See It Challenge #183


Another Friday has rolled around and I'm looking at the calendar and thinking that summer is almost over and I feel royally cheated! Here in my part of the planet, we've spent most of the summer inundated by smoke from wild fires. So much smoke that it's blotted out the sun and created air quality that is dangerous to go outside in. We don't get a lot of sunshine here other than the summer time. We live where a large lake creates it's own cloud cover in the cold winter months, so if we are cheated out of our summer months of sunshine, that's it for the year except for the odd days in spring or fall when it doesn't rain. Since this is the second year in a row of these conditions, we're starting to think that it's the new normal, and that has us all grieving in some ways for the sun and our regular summer activities. They're actually starting to do studies on the psychological effects of all of this. Climate change is a real thing, people!

Anyway, it is Friday, as I said and time for a new Challenge from As You See It Challenges. It's a sketch challenge by Amanda, entitled Queues, as you'll see by the challenge banner:


As soon as I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the new Winter Woods* stamp set from the up coming 2018 Holiday Catalogue. There were two possibilities for images I could use: one was a stamp of birch trunks and one is the version you see here:


  • This was actually a very simple card to make. 3 layers, white embossing powder, baker's twine and some rhinestones. I love the effect you get with it. I think it would be effective for a Christmas card undertaking if you wanted to mass produce.
  • Love, love, love these colours together: Petal Pink, Silver, Gray Granite and White.


  • The sentiment is from the Winter Woods* stamp set as well and it worked perfectly with the sketch, fitting perfectly above the trees on the upper right side.
  • The Petal Pink and Silver Baker's Twine was the perfect finishing touch for this sketch along with the scattered Rhinestones.
I'll be going away next week on holidays so this weekend will be your last chance to get in on the August promotions. I'll be camping with spotty internet, so will not be able to submit orders until I get home. Get all orders to me by Sunday at the latest! Here are the August Promos:
