My Time To Craft 'Black, White & One Other' Challenge

Good evening all, this post should have been up this morning so apologies for it's lateness.

 I was already late with it after forgetting we are now weekly and then we had a weekend of family and my new baby grandson Harley. It is the first time we have had our eldest two and their partners plus baby here at the same time and boy did it make us realise how small our new home is. Our old house was spread over four floors and our new one is just a bungalow so big difference, I was so thankful my youngest two didn't turn up with their partners, sorry boys. Thankfully the weather was great so most of our time was spent in the garden.

I finally got around to making it late afternoon Monday then when I came to photograph it my camera froze and will not do anything. More annoying is the fact that I took loads of photo's of Harley and the family and they are all gone, the card just says no image error grrrr.

Anyhow enough wittering this week Ann has challenged us at My Time To Craft to create using 'Black, White & One Other Colour'. Now I have used green (the embossed section) which you cannot really see it in the photo as I took the picture with my hubby's ipad after he remembered it had a camera! and neither of us cannot work out how to change the settings, what a pair lol. I added a little green to the tree's and then went over them with a glue pen which takes some of the colour out before adding a layer of snow to all the snowy parts. I am sorry this is a really poor photo but I didn't want to miss uploading it for the challenge.
