Cabin by the River


Hello friends, if you are in the deep freeze like a lot of us in the US are, hope you are keeping warm and have power. 

I made this card for the challenge at Craft a Scene, the January theme is "Make your Own Theme".

I am also entering this card into these challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and More - #77 Make Your Mark - I used Tombow Markers and also sponged color on with dye ink pads.
Crafting for All Seasons - #68 All Things Bright and Beautiful
Creative Moments - #33 Anything Goes

My theme was to depict how a cabin by the river looks in the winter when it is all closed up.
It's a gray day and snowing.  A single duck has managed to find an opening in the ice covered river.  Snow is just beginning to blanket the ground and rocks.  The trees and grass take on a frosty look when the temperatures dip.


Close ups

Cabin and duck



 Ducks flying by, trees frosty with snow and ice.

River, partially ice covered.


The trees, just starting to get snow covered.


All stamps are from Stampscapes.

We have had really cold temperatures the past two days, School was cancelled
for two days because of the dangerous cold and wind chills.  Thruway and major
highways also closed.  The Casino was closed!!!!  Tomorrow the temps are going to start to climb and by the weekend it is going to be 54 degrees.  The weather is crazy!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later............

Wow Sue, this is phenomenal!!! I don't know how long it took you to do this scene, but I would have taken maybe 6 months and it still could not have come out as gorgeous as this one. You did a tremendous coloring job here. It really does make you feel like you are standing there feeling that cold wind and air on your face. I can't say enough about how much I love this piece. It should be framed. I also think that if you ever give up card making, you should take up writing. Your description of this scene was professional like. Enjoy your upcoming warm weather. We are getting the same rise in temps. this weekend, but stay warm for today.

This is absolutely amazing Sue. It looks so like a water colour painting its hard to believe it is created with stamps. You are a true professional - I wish I was even half as talented as you. Di xx
