This is an A5 card made in MCS Elite using the CD Quintessential Country Garden. It is ages since I used this CD and I had forgotten what lovely papers it has on it. Your challenges do get me looking around my CDs.
Thank you for stopping by, all your comments are much appreciated.
My design is a square card using Crafty Ann's Traditional Christmas kit. The topper is a photograph taken last Christmas. I think this is a lovely frame for all your Christmassy photographs. Do join us for Crafty Ann's latest challenge and add to your Christmas card stash.
Still with the ice and snow, my postcard features the Caribou and the Northern Lights and my page a grazing herd among the snowy trees.

I have made a 6 by 6 card using a Vintaj CD "Fading India" working in CA2. The poem is the first verse of John Godfrey Saxe's ( 1816-1887) version of the famous Indian legend.
It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.

When I think of Russia I think of Winter, War and Peace and Dr. Zhivago to blame I guess. Also I have a friend who grew up in Siberia and she was telling me how overnight the snow would almost bury their little house and they would make a sloping tunnel from the front door which was way under the snow to the outside. This is how she would then get out to school all winter. So I have used the lovely image of Moscow when it is snowing from the Snowman Movie. I added some white edging. My page also shows one of Russia's beautiful churches in the snow. The pocket is from a cover of Vogue showing a take on Russian dolls which they did for a 10th anniversary of Matryoshka dolls.

Nice to be nearer to home again. My postcard background was made using Distressed Inks and I used a stamp set from Sheena Douglas " A Little Bit Scenic Highlands Silhouette" The stag and castle are stamped and embossed with the thistles and birds stamped in black.
My page features the flag, a piper and a Robbie Burns poem.
This is an A5 card. The topper and backing papers are from the Papermania CD "Enchanted" Christmas. I built up the card in Digital Designer then printed it and added it to a card base.

I have followed the explorer nautical theme for Portugal. One of the world's most famous explorers is the Portuguese Vasco De Gama. In 1498 he became the first European to reach India by sea. In so doing he paved the way for the Portuguese Colonial Empire in Asia.
My postcard is on watercolour paper with his image from Wikipedia and a ship stamp from Artemio. The background map stamp is from Impression Obsession.
My page shows a map of Vasco De Gama's route as the pocket and pictures of the flag, Porto and the famous Discoveries monument in Lisbon made to celebrate Portugal's famous explorers.
