Snow Way!!!!!!!!!

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Matt came home from work on Friday with a request for two Wife's Christmas Cards, can you imagine, here I am totally organised all cards written, all the shopping done bar last midnight shop for last perishables

Yep, did the Morrison's shop yesterday a good two hours meandering around.  Got my planned Christmas hug with the dearest Janet and received some fabulous customer service on her counter, would expect nothing less mind :)  she is the best.  Matt got out of butterflying the leg of lamb on Christmas Day, as the lovely butcher man did this for him and I got some lovely cheeses.

The freezer is now full to capacity as is the fridge, finding today's roast and vegetables was a feat in itself, but it is now smelling absolutely gorgeous.  

I have cleaned the kitchen and rearranged so that the posh coffee machine is accessible and we have already had two filters, might have to stretch to an expresso later, as after get this - I cleaned my Beach Hut, for those of you that don't know this is my craft room.  The dear husband oh so wanted to take a photo of me, so he could blog it for you.............................don't think so.

So here are the two cards I made after sitting and colouring the images last night whilst watching the Strictly final, yay for Harry!!!!! wasn't he good. A Double for McFly.
These are similar to one  I have created before
An untraditional Christmas colour the base layers is gold mirror card as is the contrast, the MS snowflake edge punch has been used and some ribbon threaded lace ribbon and a few little gold pearls
The sentiment is a WOJ and the image is by Gillian Roberts called Eskimo Kisses by Mo Manning, the image has been coloured with copics and some spun glass added to the ground for the snow, the glitter dots for falling snow and the liquid appliqué for the fluffy ruffles.

I would like to thank all my wonderful visitors for the lovely comments they leave, allowing me to hop back to visit you all.
