Snow way...

I would have thought Mother Nature was all snowed out by now...uh nope! Woke up this morning to a light covering of snow everywhere...come one MN...enough is enough but oh no....she has other ideas and it's snowing right now!!! So much for spring :-(
On a happier note I finally made a card...yaaaaaayyyy! I text Annette early on Saturday to see if she fancied a little road trip to our local craft store after I took the dogs out. I don't need to tell you she was up for it so I picked her up and off we went. First stop was Craft at Home but they weren't open...again. From there we went to Ink Spot but didn't see anything we liked so we extended our search to Craft World where if we were clever should have been our first port of call. We FIL with a new paper pad from DCWV called Linen Closet...the colours are patterns are gorgeous and I don't think there are any I don't like. Some are glittered and some plain and I used one of the glittered papers on the card below.
I think it's quite an unusual colour combo but it works. I bought the Martha Stewart ribbon in Michael's the last time I was's a perfect match so I must have known it would come in handy some time :-)

I can never resist glittering Martini Nikki's blouse...a girl can never have too much sparkle! I snuck 2 of the pads in with my Bazzill cs and MS border punch. Annette's birthday is April 10 so I bought it for're probably thinking I just spoiled her surprise but I gave it to her as soon as we got in the car ;-).
I promised another card from Gaynor and here it is...isn't she gorgeous...

I haven't taken an angled picture but you can tell it's been 3D'd

Don't tell the other's but Daydreaming Ruby is my favourite...sshhhhhh. I love the gold in her hair and again there must be at least 4 layers.

I met my friend Jean in town for lunch today and had a good catch up. We picked lottery numbers out of a hat years and years ago and she plays them for the Wednesday draw and I play them for the Saturday draw. I never check the numbers for Wednesday so it was a nice surprise when she told me the other week we won two £10's so we had lunch courtesy of Camelot. I had my usual pate which was yummy. Afterwards we went to a new eyeglass store called Oscar & Fitch...they have the most fabulous frames and I tried on a few before I found THE pair. All the frames are the same price, £65 and you pay £20 for the lenses (they don't do eye tests but you give them your prescription and they do the rest) so you get a really funky pair of specs for £85. I'm due an eye test which I'll book asap and go back and get the frames. If I'm feeling very brave I'll take a picture of me wearing them and post it. We also had a look in French Connection and they have some really pretty things for the summer. I only did a visual shop today so hopefully I'll go back when the weather's a bit better and buy them.

Just noticed the time so I'm off to bed. I plan on getting my website sorted tomorrow and make some more cards. Dogs are at ddc so I can please myself :-)

Catch ya later x
