Two challenges for this one

Hi, So how is the SNOW effecting you all? hubby and I can't goto cinema as it's closed (due to weather) so have booked in at a lovely resturant near us (not too far!) lol isn't is astounding how a couple of weeks snow can bring a country to it's knees! I used to live in Germany as a child (for a wee while) and every year we had gloryious Winters as kids but it never stopped every one getting to work. When we have a few days of Sun it's the same thing (no water) too much rain? (flooding) Please can Britain become Great again and look after it's people it's not like we are not the highest taxed in all of Europe! I am sure many of my UK fellow crafters must feel similar.

OK Rant over, look on the bright side crafting is on top of my list of things to do (after feeding birds out side) lots visiting bless 'em I have lots of different kinds of food out to attract and help them in this very didfficult time for them.
I love this image and this is for Sketch Saturday which of course is to follow the sketch as always I do enjoy SS DT ( Iwas so close to being one of them lol how can I not continue to support the wonderful ladies there. Also this is for Kraftin’ Kimmy their challenge is to use some Paper Piecing I use this tecnique quite often although I do love to colour in my images much more. I am sure I must have said it B4 though, I would wear many DP I have in my draw lol
Using my new punch again here for the leaves I like to put some ink on the edges just to give them a wee bit of definition. I do hope you like this card there is planty of time so why not have a go?Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Stamps, Kraftin' kimmy. DP, SU Ribbon Stash. Punch, Marther Stewart. Card Stock, SU. and coloured using Copics.
