Merry Christmas

Wow we have had alot of snow! Reading ground to a halt last night and my poor husband had to walk home as there were no buses - it took him 2 hours!
Never made it to the hospital to visit my mum so we are hoping there will be some sort of bus service later today as it's way to dodgy to drive the car.
After taking the photos the other day of Katie in the snow, I decided to turn one of them into a Christmas card for my mum. Hope it helps to cheer her up as she will be in hospital over Christmas.

Christmas Snow?

Christmas is just around the corner and the snow has arrived, are we in for a white Christmas? I took these pics this morning when my daughter, Katie dragged me out into the garden to make Frosty. First day of the Christmas holidays as well so can't be bad.
Sorry I do not have anything crafty to share with you. My Mum has not been well and is now in hospital so I have really not felt in the mood to create anything. I am afraid to say that everyone has got shop brought cards this year :(
Katie and Frosty.

The making of Frosty!

How Old?

It's a big happy birthday for my husband today, he has reached the grand age of 50. I feel I am still in a position to poke fun at his age as I am still quite a way off this ripe old age. Dam I was trying not to use the word "old" but it just slipped in.Lol.
Back to the card - this was quite a quick card for me to make, I often agonise over men's cards, but I had the beer stamp from Personal Impressions and knew I was going to use it so the rest just followed. The ink used is Vintage photo distress ink, the background stamp is a Judikins cube from Stamp Addicts, the letters and numbers have been cut on the Cricut using the Jasmine cartridge, the tags were cut from a Sizzix die and the stripy paper is by Junkitz.
