Fun with the Snowman!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and surviving some of this dreadful weather that's been going around.

I've been very busy over the last few days getting cards made for yet another craft fair organised by my friend Dale down in Livingstone.  I hope that the Forth Road Bridge is fixed by then, it's been under repair yesterday and today and traffic is having to find alternative routes, but as we are not away until Friday I'm hopeful that it will be alright.  Unfortunately we couldn't get booked on a bus, so we have to drive and Alistair now hates long journeys.

Here is one of the cards I've made for the fair;
I realised that I didn't have many Children's Christmas cards, so I've made a few with the wonderful LOTV images, I do love them especially the Christmas ones. To save time I used a pre coloured image and added lots of sparkle.

Off to bed now, it's been a long day, keep well everyone and be back next week to see you,

Another super Christmas card Kate. Love the image and use of dies.
I hope the problems with the bridge are sorted soon too, what a nightmare for frequent travellers. Still I'm sure it is a safety issue.

Crafty hugs Erika. x

oh my goodness your blog is adorable, and the marching little snowman that signs us off with hugs,... is just way too cute ☺ Your card is stunning. I would love to learn your tricks/tips to get my blog looking spectacular, I just started my stamping blog in October and it's a bit plain. I'm hoping to "spruce" it up and build a bigger audience :) I invite you to come see : http://victoryfirst.blogspot.com/

Hi Kate
Magical card for all ages.
My, you have been busy. Having seen the news, I'm guessing it was Kincardine rather than Forth Bridge.
Bet you're shattered buy hope the fayre went well.
