Busy, busy, busy

Just a lightning fast post before I wake up my youngest, before wrapping the pair of us up warmly and setting off for work... I am taking a flask, drinks, snacks and blankets for us both, porta-potty for him (and me, if get really desparate!!) as it's not the getting out that worries me, but the getting home!  HB helpfully has informed me that they have shut off one of the hills just down the road cos there is a 4x4 that has lost control on a hill and is now on its side, oh great, that is SOOO reasurring!!  And there is me about to go out in what must be the most impractical vehicle going... just blooming perfect :-)

Honestly there is only about 8 inches of snow here, nothing really when you look how much the rest of the country has had, and pales into insignificance to the amount of snow in some parts of the US and the rest of Europe... but living in a backwater means we don't EVER see a snowplow, so it's 5 miles on packed ice before I get out of the lanes and onto a main road in a silly car ahead of me... wish me luck :-/

In my promise to keep my blog more updated (BEV this relates to YOUR comment the other night) I hereby promise to be good and post more often (unless I am stuck in a snowdrift somewhere, in which case I've got a good excuse!!), I thought I'd share some of the umpteen cards I have been making over the weekend... most of them are re-runs of stuff I have already posted, but there are some new ones, so here goes...

OK, these two have used the same design, same papers, but I'll show you both

Firstly a "Stella Image" from Bugaboo

Perfect for anyone that you know that is a bit of a "Bah-humbug"!!

Secondly the fabulous Shopping Girl Digi by Gale Bond available at Scrapbook Sisters

Doesn't she look amazing in her Red Coat!!  I have to say I was rather pleased how my colouring went on this one!  It almost looks like I know what I am doing!!  Shocking photo though... it didn't look that fuzzy on the camera screen!!

Images - Shopping Girl from Scrapbook Sisters; Santa Called Image and sentiment - Bugaboo;
Black and White Bazzill; Hot Chocolate "Glistening Snow" Fancy Panks Designs;
Cricut; Woodware Circle Punch; MS Border Punch; EK Success Snowflake Punch;
Copics; Fluffy Stuff; Glamour Dust; Glossy Accents; Stickles
Charms, Gems; Ribbon

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges please :-)

Right that's it from me ; -)

Hope you are all OK... keep warm and stay safe,

Sue xx

Update - made it to work and home again safe and sound - only a couple of sideways moments :-)
