Christmas Card Club - For Someone Special

Good morning to you all.  Although not really so good since it snowed very heavily  yesterday and quite a lot overnight too!  I think we will have to do without a newspaper today because to get to the next village to the shop we have to go down a very steep hill which is rarely ever gritted.  It's not worth the risk to get what passes for news these days.  Luckily I did my food shop yesterday so the cupboards and fridge are full so we won't starve. Mind you, I'm sure it will soon be gone.

Anyway, I cannot believe these two weeks have gone so quickly.  March already!  It was Zoe's turn to choose our theme and she said to make a card for someone special.  Now that is almost an Anything Goes challenge.  The other girls will be posting tomorrow but I have another DT card due then and I don't like posting two on the same day.

My Card


Recipe
6" square base card made from Papermania card stock
pink pearlescent card - Pennies Worth
embossing folder - Snowflake Lattice  Creative Expressions
topper - Pink Gem "Snow In Love"
pink pearls from stash

I decided once again to use some of the images I got from Pink Gem last year and didn't use.  They make really quick cards, and again I made it flat for posting.

Take care and keep warm!!

Stay safe with that snow. You are wise to avoid that hill till the roads clear a bit...

It's a delightful & cute image, and I love that embossing design that you've placed it atop. It's a perfect "Someone Special" image, and particularly the sentiment. Glad that you didn't go out for a paper and chance a fall. Rightly said, the news these days is not worth taking the risk. Hope the snow is melting a bit for you today. Happy Sunday, Mother's Day, and have a great week. TFS & Hugs.

This is sooooo sweet and I dearly love snow people - you know they say that there is no people like "snow" people!
I am green with envy over your embossed background. It seems like all my embossing folders are so small. Your card definitely melted my heart!

Hi Christine
What a super image and sentiment on this delightful card.
Yes, we had the snow too but it didn't last long thankfully.
Will be in touch at the weekend to sort out our biannual liaison lol!
