Fun in the Snow!

Good Afternoon to you all, and I hope today finds you well.

I've just been touring around your blogs and what wonderful projects I'm seeing, so many different styles and techniques, all just goes to show what talent there is out there.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments of yesterday, not only on my card but, regarding my health too.  I do appreciate them, and believe it or not it does help to know that others have experienced WRS too.

Again another quiet day for me, a bit of food shopping in the morning, I hate it, then home to a bit of house work.  Alistair has been painting the fence and it's a race to see what comes first, the rain or the completion of the painting.  Oh he had such plans today as  he said he was also going to mow the grass, wash the car and wash the windows. well he's still at the fence, and if the rain comes,  well that's the end of the chores.
Me thinks hes overestimated what he can do in any given day. Poor man, I work him hard!!

Anyway here is my card for the day;
Apologies for yet another Christmas card, but I need to keep ahead if I'm to get enough cards made for the craft fair. I know it's only May.
LOTV Mini Masterpieces and matted on to Adorable Scorable card, papers from Nitwits, Frosty Christmas, again from LOTV. as is sentiment. Snowflake and Christmas trees from punches, buttons from Papermania and some raffia twine and a couple of little gems in the centre of the snowflakes finishing with Icicles Stikles.

Off now to finish my tour around your blogs, hope to see you soon,
Kate  x
