Hello everybody, well the sunshine didn't last long. It's very cold again and we have had a few snow flurries, although nothing much. I was hoping the sun would get rid of the snow but no such luck. We live next to a public bridleway. The gate is just passed the entrance to our drive. A girl on a horse went through the gate earlier but turned back immediately because the snow drifts were still too deep. This has certainly been the worst winter for a while. The fact that we had very little summer has made it seem even longer I think.

My Card

I haven't done any crafting today so I thought I would post the other sympathy card that I made and didn't use.

It is again 5 x 7 inches and I used the Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder. The two crosses are from Spellbinders Crosses 2 which I inked whilst still in the dies. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with the smallest die from Detailed Scallops. The flowers were made from Cheery Lynn Miniature and Medium Roses and the pearls were from my stash.

Well that's it from me. Hopefully I will get some time to craft tomorrow.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  17. Hi Christine,
    another super card. Love the design and colours used.
    Sorry to hear you have and are still continuing to get rather nasty winter weather.
    Yes this winter seems to be dragging on such a long time this year.
    I think we have had nearly six months this year instead of 3 or 4 months as is usual.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
