Robins for Christmas Card Club.

Sorry - I have only just checked my blog and realised it hadn't posted! I can tell you however that the temperature has risen a wee bit and apparently out on the roads it is starting to snow - so my friend in the village said. Not here just yet but we are much higher so we can expect that.

Good morning.  Well, since I am scheduling this post I don't actually know what kind of day it is. We are still well and truly snowed in and this (Saturday) is day 3+. We actually have been snowed in since mid afternoon on Wednesday.  We would have been stuck anyway because there is a great deal of snow but the high winds have created incredible drifts. This morning John and I decided to walk to the next village because we were beginning to feel a bit stir crazy and John wanted a newspaper. Now the three miles there is okay because it is downhill,  We used our trekking poles and I still managed to fall three times! Not hurt, I hasten to add.  Coming back was a different story - uphill and a long, steep one at that. And the papers hadn't been delivered to village shop anyway ... lol!  However I do wish I had remembered to take my camera because the huge snowdrifts were beautiful.  Such gorgeous shapes.

My Card

I loved this cheery little image and so I decided to make a set of six - obviously not all here because I can actually count. They are 4 inches square and flat for posting So all good.

I do hope that if you have very bad weather you are coping with it. The forecast says that the temperature is due to rise here to plus instead of minus so that's a bonus!!

Take care and keep warm.

Sweet image and great little cards. I love that they will go for regular postage as it is so high now.

Sounds like quite the outing you had and then were not even able to get the paper! Ours is pretty well melted now but we have predictions for more in a couple of days.
Hope yours melts soon.

Love the Robin image Christine, just so much fun, unlike the weather, we have been lucky this time around, but not so other folks, you take care, Kate x

This is an adorable little "Santa" Robin! I love the way you've kept the presentation simple to let his cheekiness just shine! Also liked the piercing on the top layer mat. Your walk sounds like such an adventure and glad no damage from the falls. Hope the weather eases up some for you all real soon! TFS & Hugs

Oh he is indeed a happy a little chappie. We ventured out to the shops for the first time yesterday and managed to get more supplies in. We had the same problem with the snow drifts. The neighbours opposite had hardly any snow on their pathways and garden it was all in ours!! Lol. Whilst The Doc was busy shovelling snow to clear a pathway they were merely brushing the snow away with a broom and wondering what all the fuss was about. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Christine
Terrific set of jolly little robins.
We had a couple of snowy days and freezing cold days but not as bad as yours sounds.
Hope you are de-snowed now.
Best wishes.
