Let It Snow

Thought this might be suitable for the weather forecast we've been given. I have been a bad blogger lately and may not have got around to your blog and if that's the case I am sorry. I have had two children poorly and family matters have got in the way a bit too. I need more hours in a day. Although don't think i'll be going out in the snow they have forecasted, as I spent last night in A&E after kicking the bottom of the wardrobe. The result is a broken toe, ouch !!!!!!!!!

Also Bobby tried to go to school yesterday as he only had a little cough, and school phoned and asked me to pick him up, as his breathing was bad and was constantly coughing. This croup is taking some getting over this time. So kept him at home today and as his cough is no better today definately will be keeping him home tomorrow too.

This is for the following challenge:-

1. Create 4 fun - challenge 47 - Sketch

2. ABC Challenge - I is for Ice and Snow

3. Simon Says Stamp - Let It Snow

4. Crafts and Me - Dreaming of a white christmas + snowflakes

5. Penny Black At Allsorts - November challenge - It's beginning to look a lot like christmas


Stamps - Penny Black, Dovecraft Sentiment, Habico snowflake,

Papers - Dovecraft winter wonderland,

Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks,

Tools - Snowflake punch, nesties, cuttlebug, swiss dots folder,

Embellishments - Stickles,

Thank you for popping by my blog

Happy crafting

Hi Tracy

So how goes it this morning at 'Casualty' ?

Is it your 'Beckham' ? That's what they called it when I did mine, plaster up to my knee all for a broken toe. It was due to come off two days after Alex's graduation, I pleaded with them to take it off a couple of days early and it just fell on deaf ears.

Has your hubby ever taken his tool kit to your leg.......better be cafeful what I say hour later and the offending plaster was off and do you know I never did get a follow up from the hospital asking why I hadn't turned up for my appointment. For all they know I'm still in plaster a couple of years on.

OK, enough yatter. A really super card, I am really getting a liking for blue Christmas this year. Lots of lovely texture on this one.

Thank you for joining in at Penny Black at Allsorts again this month and good luck.
