Animal Antics

I love this digi from the Next Big Thing from Just Inklined  it's a great reminder that Spring is not far away. We are lucky and have at least 4 pairs of birds who have nested in our garden for the past few years, waiting on the chicks to leave the nest is really exciting most years all the chicks have fully fledged and survived to become independent

Just For You

My sister ( non crafter ) gave me a selection of bits and pieces at Christmas, it was a really random selection from different companies so I tried to use the Dies and a selection from the other packs to make a thank you card, the thank you in the trimcraft sentiment selection was the wrong colour so I used the Just For You.

Shades of Blue

The challenge at 52CCT is to use shades of blue, I have combined this with a new die bought in the sales after Christmas.
We have had miserable weather here first the high winds which left us without power on Friday for about 14 hrs then yesterday some snow, which is still lying.

Seasons Greetings

Another card I didn't show before Christmas, it fits nicely into the challenge at 52CCT,
Many thanks to everyone who sent best wishes and messages saying they hoped I would feel better soon. Holidays are over for hubby and it will be nice to get back to my usual routine.

Walking In A Winterwonderland

Best Wishes for 2015 to everyone who visits. We have cold frosty mornings here in the North East of Scotland and thankfully little rain but a light dusting of snow.
I have several cards that I didn't post in December, at the beginning of the month we had a lot on, then as Christmas approached I contracted a viral infection which left me feeling weak and washed out, of course it was at it's worst on Christmas Day which I spent in bed unable to raise my head from the pillow. Hubby coped with dinner for the boys and our eldest's fiancée, as they left on Boxing day I felt I'd missed out as I hardly saw them.
There are still lots of Christmas Card Challenges to enter.
