Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Good Morning,

Well the title says it all, we have the white stuff here today all around on the hills, there was a light dusting on my car last night but that is clear this morning, the sun is shining but it feels so cold after the last few weeks of mild weather.  I think it will be crafting today, it is our eldest son's birthday tomorrow so I need to get a card sorted before seeing him. 

  We had a lovely day yesterday we went to the Trafford Centre, had a look round then went to the cinema to see the new James Bond film "Spectre", really enjoyed it and we had a super Chinese meal afterwards.

Now onto today where we have a new challenge at My Time to Craft and this week our challenge is:

Let it Snow

My card is an easel card but I couldn't get a good picute of it with the light being so bad so settled for just a picture of the front.

Image - Topper by Hunkydory
Paper - Magnolia
Edge punch - Martha Stewart
(I used the punched out snowflakes around the paper)
Ribbon, sentiment, glamour dust

I hope you can visit the challenge blog. have a look at the cards by the Design Team and maybe join in with our challenge this week.

Good Morning,

Lorna and I had a lovely evening yesterday at the Garden Centre in our village where they had the opening of their Christmas display.  Such beautiful decorations, food and gifts for Christmas, a 20% discount, a complementary glass of wine or juice and a mince pie.

I am off out this morning with my cousin to the Trafford Centre, I have been instructed by my youngest granddaughter Lauren (who will be 7 on Friday) that she wants a red rucksack with a zip around and a pocket on the front!!! - I think they might have one in Debenhams, or should I say I hope they have one.
