A Great Big Hug and WOYWW

By late yesterday afternoon I could see the green of the grass in my garden again, and at the front of the house I could see a tarmac road instead of the white of compacted snow. But this morning it's all white again and it's been snowing lightly all morning.  OK so we've not as much snow here as a lot of people are dealing with, and there's only a fraction of what we had before Christmas but I DON'T LIKE IT.  I just want it to go away.  I've got Winter hibernation tendencies to start with, I don't need the added complication of this manky weather.  

That's my "rant for the day" over with.  I've made myself a hot chocolate - I've discovered that the steamer on my lovely Gaggia cappuccino maker is fab for heating the milk and a lot less hassle than using a pan.
Wednesday means it's WOYWW time again - if you've not come across this little bit of fun and inquisitiveness click on the WOYWW blinkie in the side bar to find out more.

Here's how my desk looks today, you can click for a closer look ;)

There's something I've just finished and in amongst the stuff I've been using is a little poly-baggie full of gorgeousness which is the next thing on my "to-do" list.  Not even dared open the bag because I knew I'd want to play with the contents instead of finishing other jobs!

Anyway, I bet there are a lot of people who could use a great big warm hug  today, so this card, made using one of this month's Crafty Templates is for you:

Isn't he gorgeous?
You can get your own set of fabulous Crafty Templates HERE, this month is all about hugs, hearts and friendship.  You can also find out and order the Crafty Goodies Kit Leo puts together each month.  I've used card and paper from the kit on the teddy card, plus a bit of my own stash by way of the purple and pink card scraps.

I've a couple more cards to share, but I'll save them for another time.  

Hope you're keeping safe and warm in this horrible weather

soooo cute Kathy! What a fab template.
I'm with you on the hibernation front - I would be quite happy to not have to step foot outdoors for the whole of Jan and Feb, lol!

I'm with you Kathy. I've had enough of the white stuff now. It does have a few advantages...1. No customers meants more play time and 2.Lots of fab birds feeding at my bird stations [see today's blog :-)]

Very hugable little bear! Lots going on on your desk! Not sure I could cope with that, but I love all the colours! It's warmed up here today (Michigan), it's now just -5C, but it feels warmer with the sun.
