A Crofter's Winter at Fat Pages!

What is a Crofter?  Wikipedia's definition: "croft is a fenced or enclosed area of land, usually small and arable with a crofter's dwelling thereon. A crofter is one who has tenure and use of the land, typically as a tenant farmer."  Cool, isn't it?  And Terry at Delicious Doodles captured the definition perfectly, don't you think?

Using Prisma Pencil and OMS, I used shades of brown-henna, chestnut and umbers, mixed with white.  Added a little mahogany to the cabin to bring it out a little more. This image was different for me to color but fun and enjoyable to make into a Christmas card.  Perfect for a manly man, with the moose ivory bead in the ribbon pin made by Karen C.  

My hubby was really pleased with this card.  Oh goodness, I just realized I haven't made him a Christmas card yet!  UH OH!  

Without further ado, here is "A Crofter's Winter" by Delicious Doodles:
