Good morning and a happy weekend to you all!  Have you anything nice planned?  We are all going out for a meal tonight as it is my lovely daughter Stacey's birthday on Tuesday - can't believe she'll be 39 - where have all those years gone!!  Stacey and her partner are staying over and tomorrow Stacey and I are going to the Trafford Centre for some shopping and I will get her birthday present, I think she wants some boots!

I have a card today that I have made for the Crafty Sentiments Design Inspirational Blog.

I used the gorgeous Snowman and Friends which I coloured in with my Copics adding Glossy Accents and Stardust Stickles.  The papers are Nitwits Patchwork Christmas.  I cut and matted the image with Spellbinders.  The snowflake is a Martha Stewart Punch the wooden sentiment is from my stash and has been painted with Acrylic Paints one of which was a glitter paint.

Here is another view:

Our new dining set was delivered yesterday and I am so pleased with it, I always have a worry that it won't look nice when you get it home.  Harry, our cat, must approve because when I went down this morning he was asleep on one of the chairs!!!  Right I must dash got to get the housework done then shopping - what a fun day!! Thank you so much for looking and any comments you leave its always so nice to read them! Take care xx

Happy birthday to you eldest is just a year younger.

Your card is so lovely. The blue with that lovely burgundy colour. The contrast against the blue is so nice! Love the sort of jagged edges lisce the snowman sits on. It reminds me of a jagged, icy snow drift...the kind you truly see in nature.
