Sweet Friend

Good afternoon dear friends. Well they promised snow on Sunday and they have certainly delivered!!! Yesterday we dug out the snowdrifts from around the house and cars. We knew more snow was due but at least there us less to dig next time.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge  picture.
My card today uses  two JustRite Stamps from the same set as my last card "Grand Sentiments". This time it was the Labels 8 frame and a different sentiment, both of which I stamped with Memento London Fog which I thought looked better with the lavender papers than stark black. The papers are from First Edition "Daydream". I only realised afterwards that the glue hadn't dried when I took the photograph and one of the Spellbinders Foliage leaves had slipped. (I have now corrected that.) The roses are  Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Well it has not stopped snowing since 9:30 this morning and it is getting pretty deep out there. I have just been out and freed a robin which had somehow managed to get into my fruit cage but couldn't get out again. I have really had a good look but cannot for the life of me see how he got in there in the first place! I hope he appreciates how wet and cold I got in freeing him because whilst I was already out there I also thought I should get rid of the snow off the poly tunnel because it was deep so obviously quite heavy and I didn't want it to get damaged..

Well that's it for today.  Hope everybody is warm and dry and most of all safe!


  1. This is lovely Christine I love most of the First Edition papers - papers are my thing if you haven't already noticed - Your card has a lovely layout very nice.

    We too have had snow all day today, but luckily very small snow flakes so it's not too deep.
