Always Use Rubber - Winter and or Spring

Always Use Rubber got off to a reasonable start, thank you.   For this fortnights theme I came up with the idea of Winter and or Spring.   A lot of people are making Winter theme, Winter season cards at the moment. We thought this might be a good way to introduce Always Use Rubber to them.

I'm part way through making my 2017 calendar and my inspiration pieces for the challenge as some of the pages.   This is January, mid winter but with a promise of spring if you look in the right places. I love snowdrops and am hoping by the end of January to see the poking up in one of those sheltered spots.   

Snowdrops in the foreground masked and a snow laden bare tree placed behind.   Snow on the ground and a Robin on a branch.   Above a clear blue sky and wintery sunshine, a flock of birds fly past.   David Essex fans, do you remember "A Winter's Tale"?  When I look at this page I can hear him singing.

As You Like It - Do you prefer new or old stash? and Why?  Old stash, I'll buy new stuff but tend to use it with the old.   I'm also a rubber stamper from way back when only wood mounted rubber stamps were available.   They are still the most satisfying stamps to use.  Everything used on this page was at least 2 years old the stamps are all 5 + years.
