Making Frosty friends

Happy Friday everyone and I hope you have something nice planned for the coming weekend. Martin is working so it will be pottering about here for me, spending some time with Surprise, dog walking, lawn mowing (if the rain stops!) and maybe even some housework...I said maybe!!

Anyway, I was inspired by a DT card that my lovely friend Lisa shared in support of 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday and thought I would join in so here is my card.



Most of you will know that I am a bit seriously  partial to a paper pad or three and I recently subscribed to Craftwork Cards' Julie Loves monthly boxes and this Christmas collection was my first delivery. It's gorgeous as you can see!! The snowlady was stamped using a Lawn Fawn set Making Frosty Friends and was coloured with SN Illustrator markers.

Another Christmas card made!!

Thank you for stopping by xx

  3. Aww cute, thanks for linking up at Galz too.
    Hope the rain stops and you can get out to cut the grass, mind if it doesn't you've got a v good excuse to stay indoors and play in the craft room. It has stopped raining here for a few hours but it will start again around 4 as soon as I leave the hairdressers!
