Imagine a perfect winterscene

....can you see it.............
bright blue sky, snowflakes gently floating down.
Happy reindeer clustered together, Santa saying HO HO HO,
even a fairy waving her magic wand......

Keep that picture in your mind. Does it look like this..................................

OK I have to admit I have a very active imagination - well you have to -  to design ribbon!
Well for my style of ribbon.  I did have a peek around the other Christmas ribbons out in the big blue yonder,
rather boring I thought, and looked as if they had been around for yonks.

Winterscene Stamps

oooooh I have to say these images are adorable, all set in a little postage stamp.

Now what came first the stamps or the winterscene?

It was the stamps. 
Only a chance remark by one of the girls in the warehouse "They would look so good in a line".
They are in a line, a line of stamps.
"No Ali, like a winterscene"

That was it, I was A.W.O.L for the rest of the day, and the Winterscene was born!

What do you think of these....


When I was a little girl, I used to help my Grandma stick picture message style stamps to the
envelopes of the cards we were delivering by hand - do you remember?

That memory made this ribbon, printed onto 16mm grosgrain small stamps with an image and a message.
Why not use them as a ribbon (great idea) or cut them into stamps.
(Seal the ribbon ends with a little watered down PVA glue)

The images are so super cute (well, we think so), we have turned them into Digi images to download or
Pre-coloured toppers.

Ali  (not me, but Ali the follower) I read your comment last night and thought it was a great idea.
Both todays images and yesterdays Cupcakes can be downloaded as a set of six. 
Magic, thank you.

OK I struggle with card making, not the first time I have told you this, sewing is my passion....

Not forgetting the boys
