Snow is falling

Well, not actually falling at the moment, but it has been falling and is now sitting there looking menacing!  The worst of it fell yesterday, but luckily I had headed home early on Friday as, once a few flakes of snow fall the whole of the rail network grinds to a halt.  I managed to get my grocery shopping done on the way home so I haven't needed to go out during the heavy snow.  So, I have spent the weekend making cards for my two DDs. The first one is obviously based on t!m's tag.  I changed the colours, used a musical stamp instead of script, used the whole of the Townscape die and added some Snowtex to the houses, plus a couple of trees to fill up the space at the edge.

The second one just sort of evolved.  I started with a paper napkin with a Santa on that I wanted to use.  Once that had dried and been trimmed I gave it a wash of Mushroom Eco paint and some mica powder then wondered what to do next!  I finally decided on using some PaperArtsy bauble stamps on some chipboard I had coloured with Inca Gold and Viva Precious Metal, cut these out and attached them with ribbon underneath a Basic Grey chipsticker.  It looks much sparklier in real life.

Scary thing, these are the last two cards I needed to make, so I am all finished with almost a week to go!! I have also decorated the cake, tidied the living room and put up the Christmas decorations. I am obviously a pod person and the real me has been kidnapped by aliens :o

Ah well, four more work days to go (I don't have to work on
Christmas Eve).... maybe the snow will come back tonight and I will be snowed in :)

Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe.

Great cards, love them both - I love how you used the santa napkin. Hope you don't get stuck tomorrow - unless it's before you go to work, lol! I am wondering how (if) I will fare on the train to my Mum's on Friday (or possibly Thursday afternoon, it all depends) Wish i could stay home.... hey ho.

They are both fab but oooh that bottom one is just gorgeous.

Hope it's not to bad where you are now. We had a massive snow fall again last night but it's starting to thaw rapidly. Am hoping it's safe enough to drive on Boxing day as supposed to be up Hastings seeing Craigs parents.

I bet your daughters loved their cards Kay! They're both gorgeous! Hope you're having a wonderful Christmas! Just off to my Mum & Dad's for a noisy Boxing Day, with my brother, sister & their kids too!
