Coming in from the cold!!

Good afternoon to everyone and hope you had a fabby weekend!  I had a lovely time down in London with my son, daughter in law and grandson but it was soooooooo cold down there and we had snow something we don't see that often in Blackpool. It doesn't seem as cold up here as it did down in London must be the lovely sea air lol!!

Today I have made a card using a sketch again - loving those sketches at the mo!!

I've used another Bildmalarna stamp again I think I love them as much as my Tildas.  The papers I have used are Nitwits called Cherryblossoms.  The sewing machine has had an airing today but was complaining bitterly about sewing on paper so (sew) it was spurting out millions of threads underneath.  I gave it a good telling off then it behaved itself only wish I could say the same about my sewing!!  The sentiment is computer generated and I have used Nesties for the image and sentiment.  The flowers are a Marianne Die and the border punch is X Cut.  I have distressed the paper behind the image with my paper distressor and added some white acrylic paint but you can't really see that in this picture.  I have added pearls and some Stickles to the flower centres.  I will enter the following challenges:

I C Sketches - Sketch 149
Phindy's Place - Photo Inspiration
One Stitch at a Time - With Love
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Show Love

Divas by Design - Anything Goes

Harrison my grandson had fun in the snow this is the first time he has really seen it apart from as a small baby so he was fascinated and we took him out for a little play in it:

Well that's it for me now have to go and start sorting out some dinner, thanks for looking and take care xx

I love your card! I really like gingham and your flowers are great. But most of all, I love that picture of your grandson. You do not look old enough to be a grandmother and that kid is what I call gorgeous!!!!

Such a pretty card Susan, it makes me long for spring and some warm sunshine. Children can be so funny when they first come across snow, I can remember my eldest he was so sad when it all melted.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
