Snow Day

Wow well we finally got some snow, we looked out the window on Friday night and it was snowing and then spent the whole of friday evening checking, took forever to get to sleep as just wanted it to be morning so I could go out and play lol. Also my brother had got the home from the Isle of Man and was stuck for nearly the whole night on the M6, so I was half listening out for him getting back to give him a hand bringing his stuff in, he eventually arrived at half 6 (think I'd managed about 2 hours sleep by then lol) and by half 8 I was trying to convince everyone to come and help build a snowman - don't think I was very popular lol, but in fairness we haven't had this much snow in about 15 years - but think the result was worth it even if I do say so myself. And the snow is all still there :) I know everyone is complaining about it and no doubt when I have to go out in it I will too but for now it looks soooooooo pretty and I got to make a snowman :)

Anyways onto the second card, this has to be my favourite Bugaboo Stamp I have and I got it as a freebie!!! Woop!!! He's just sooooooooo cute. I still don't really use digi stamps much but when I do I love that you can re-size them. And some more of my favourite October Afternoon papers :) forgot to put a piece of ribbon across the card, doh oh well I think that the image is cute enough that no one will notice lol.

And a close-up to try and show the glitter

Supplies: 'Eggbert Winter' Digi Stamp by Bugaboo, 'Good Cheer' Papers by October Afternoon, Card by Doodlebug & DCWV, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Blue & Red Ink Pad, Ribbon from Stash, Copics, Promarkers

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Alphabet Challenge - H for Hats

Pink Paper Paradise - Make It Monday

And before I go, I just thought I'd share my 'snowman' picture. As Ian said snowmen are sooooo last year lol, so here is my snowduck!!! he's modelled on my cuddly duck (he's filled with wheat so he's like a cross between a bean bag and a hot water bottle lol), I don't think we did too bad at all really and 3 days on he's still standing - though that is probably down to the fact that I don't think it's gone above 0 degrees lol.

Right I'm off to bed now, looking forward to a lie in and a lazy day tomorrow - well that's the plan anyway lol no doubt things will come up and suppose could get some tidying done or maybe make a start on January's cards instead (that's a tough choice lol) XOX
