When we were in Buckinghamshire for the weekend a couple of weeks back it was warm and sunny and I was very surprised to see that I'd caught the sun on my face and neck while we were wandering around Bletchley Park (where the Enigma code was cracked). Less than two weeks later last night we glance out of the lounge window to see SNOW falling, and what's more it keeps falling and soon the cars, and gardens have a fairly thick covering, and there's even some on the road.
A lot of it had gone before I braved the garden with the camera, but here are a couple of pics of what was left at about 10am this morning - forgive the rubbish photos, I forgot to change the settings. The snow was actually white, not that interesting blue shade!It's absolutely freezing here this morning, but the sun is out so hopefully things will warm up and thaw out a bit soon.
Yesterday I made this card, it's a commissioned card and will be on it's way to Federico in Italy in time for his first birthday. A good excuse to get out the gorgeous "Baby Powder" papers from Imaginisce - some of these have a light sprinkling of glitter on them, but that doesn't really show up on the photo. I've used the template I made for last week's Daring Cardmakers Little Extra challenge - it works really well for adding a name like this to a card. BTW the draw for the winner has been done and will be announced on the regular DCM Friday dare, I wonder if the winner is you? lol
Some more Christmas cards, this time I've used papers from the Fancy Pants "Happy Holidays" 8x8 pad. There are some lovely designs and colours in this set - several of them aren't too Christmassy and will be great for other cards and projects too. The little trees on these cards are cut from one of the paper designs and glued to cereal-packet chipboard before inking the edges and attaching them to the cards.
I'll add a little click-on-able pic of the paper pad so you can have a closer look if you're tempted!
