Just a little of the white stuff

Well we did get the forecast Arctic blast here on Thursday. Just as predicted the snow started falling at 5pm but luckily it was not too cold and very soon things turned slushy.  When I woke up on Friday morning and opened the back door, this view greeted Billy.
 Just a little of the white stuff.

Needless to say Billy didn't stay out long and quickly came back into the warm.

Today's card is one with some chilly colours but a sweet warm theme....a new baby card I made for Dotty's Tea House.
The stamped image is Ladybug Crafts Ink (sadly no longer trading). I die cut a mixed media background from a snippet of inky card I had in my stash. I stamped my image and then coloured on top with Promarkers...I rather like the effect. The sentiment is LOTV. The dies are Memory box and Spellbinders and the DP is an ancient digi paper I have.

My card was made for the following challenges;

Passion for Promarkers add some bling I added a charm and also used some glossy card for my focal backing card.
I love Promarkers use something new my new is the spellbinders lattice frame.
Memory Box Winter blues
Paper Creator anything goes
Creative Corner anything goes
Pixie's snippets Playground #263/4 My whole card is a creation made with snippets of card and paper.
Not just cards new beginnings
Creative Moments something new
Craft Heaven winter blues
Crafty friends new beginnings

I hope that those of you in the UK are all keeping snug? Today is very wet and one of those days it may not ever quite get light! My Finnish and American friends still have it much worse but then we just rarely seen snow in the balmy south of England 😉 Thanks for visiting and for your very kind comments you take the time to leave me. I really enjoy reading every single one of them. I think today is a day to stay in doors, Keep Snug and Carry on Crafting. We might even light the open fire today....there is nothing quite like an real fire to gaze at. 

Back soon,

Bye for now,
