Snow Angel -Thursday 6th December

Good Morning my blog friends!

I hope you are all well and not feeling too's a  bit, isn't it?! Welcome to my new follower and thank you so much for joining me on my crafty journey!

Yesterday I took the bus into Bath again to meet another friend, Grace, who I used to work with several years ago and we have remained good friends. We were literally meeting at lunch time, so I did have an amble around the Christmas Market this week and made a few little purchases :) It was such a cold day, but the sun shone and made it just a perfect winter day.

This week, the bus was very busy by the time it left our little town - it's a cross country bus, which stops in one other small town and otherwise little one of the stops a whole WI group got on..people were already standing and now there were 20 more..oh my word! Of course more people wanted to get on at the other stops wasn't a pleasant  40 minute journey and I did think, a little dangerous...but we got there and thankfully they were getting the late bus back!

So for today's card....

I'm still on a Christmas 'roll' I'm afraid, there's no stopping me now I'm down to the last few more 'special' ones!

The card is backed with kraft paper, downloaded from Pink Petticoat and you will probably recognise the image as an LOTV stamp, which I have coloured with Promarkers. I then added some dies from various Spellbinders sets, some foliage, gems, bells and ribbon. The two snowflakes are little chipboard embellishments, coloured with picket fence distress stain and finished off with Cosmic Twinkles.

I know you are all very busy, but my design team project for Fantastic Ribbons (the ribbon wreaths) is now up on their blog..if you can spare a minute to pop over there and leave a quick comment, I would be really grateful! Thank you! You can get there from here

Thank you for stopping here, I really do appreciate it!
