Monochrome Snowman

Good morning. Hope this finds you all Hunky-dory.  Speaking of Hunkydory, I attended the Great British Craft Show at Kenilworth and luckily Ang (Mrs Duck) was well enough to attend. We had a very long gossip session over brunch as you can imagine.  Hope it wasn't too much for you Ang and that you didn't overdo it! Today is a day for you take things easy or Mr D will not let you loose again! Hope his cold is well and truly on the mend.

Please scroll down if you are looking for my Christmas Card Club card.

Well it's time for the next OSAAT challenge  which is "Anything Goes .... With Monochrome".

  8. Hi Christine
    Love that you've chosen blue for the monochrome. The snowflakes are fab and the whole card is gorgeous.
    I must confess, I think maybe I overdid it as been suffering a bit since yesterday afternoon, not helped by a disturbed night with Mr D's chesty snorts. Been sniffing myself for past couple of hours too so it's all good fun today lol!
    It was great to get out and meet up yesterday...and not spend much money either lol!
