Enjoy your day by Debbie features Winston's Lake House, Mountains, Petite Clouds, and Snow Globe Scenes by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #outdoorcards, #cardmaking

I wanted to create a fun outdoor scene set in the mountains by a lake--my idea of paradise!  
I tried my drawing skills to create a lake for my lower horizontal element.  I pulled out some of my students' drawing books to try to add some dimension for the shoreline.  I then used one of my favorite non-feline NND stamp set--Winston's Lake House --to add Winston and his pal in their canoe and some cattails.  A mountain paradise wouldn't be paradise without a log house, so I added the little cabin also from the Winston's Lake House stamp set.  A mountain paradise needs mountains, so I used the Mountains stencil to add them in the background.  I would also want lots of evergreen trees, so I used the little fir tree stamp from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set and added lots of trees.  As much as I like a nice thunderstorm in the mountains, I decided little puffy clouds would be a better idea for this card. I used the Petite Clouds stencil.  I added a bit of sunshine peeking above the mountains and added the sentiment. Ta-da....a slice of paradise all on a little card!  

Now it's your turn to join us at Inky Paws!
