White out!

Oh no!!! More darn snow! Yup we have more of the horrid cold white stuff! At the moment its like this outside! Eeeps!

Now can you guess who is on taxi duties later on today? Oh yes that'll be me then! Its also the Big L's works Christmas 'do' as well.... If this keeps on he definitely won't be able to go. So fingers crossed it stops and thaws! Did I mention I HATE SNOW?

Anyway enough of snow - yesterday was the OM's birthday. So as a break I got to make something other than Christmas cards. So after rifling through my stamps - I mean I've only got one or two..... I decided this little Henry Mouse would be perfect for his card. A few papers from the Basic Grey Boxer collection (love these for men's' and boy's cards) and voila! C'est fini! Oh I had to add a few flowers from Orchid Crafts, it was too plain without!

The sentiments or words really are from a set of Autumn Leaves stamps. The words are actually in frames so I just cut out the words and gave them a swish of Copics and then then another swish of Copic glitter pen. Naturally this doesn't really show up on my 'super' photography!

So I hope you all stay safe in this horrid weather - if you have to go and drive do it slowly! No racing.

Lovely card, beautifully coloured. I didn't know copics did a glitter pen. I feel the same about snow - it looks so pretty but its hideous to drive in. x

I love snow...it's a sickness, I know.

Fab card Net. I agree a card looks too bare without a bloom or too!
Safe driving if you have to x
