Snow??? You gotta be kidding!!

We've had sprinklings of snow the last couple of days but nothing to get our knickers in a twist about....Until this morning that is! Take a look at what I woke up to this morning....


Come on Mother Nature...it's MARCH....it's suppose to be SPRING or at least winter should be OVER!! The snow is still coming down hard and I think the only ones happy about it are Rocky and Ruby. They had a great time when I let them out this morning :-D

I was commissioned for a baby card...twin girls! I hadn't made a twin card using Baby Baby yet and I couldn't decide which image to use but finally settled on the pram/buggy. It took a long time to like this card let alone love it. I started it on Thursday and put it aside then pulled it out again last night and fiddled with it some more. I put the finishing touches on it late last night then went to bed. When I came down this morning and saw it sitting I was quite pleased with it. Let me know what you think....


I've had these charms for a couple of years. I love them when I see them on other people's cards but when I put them on they never look as nice as Anita's, Sue's or Mary J's. Something was missing and I found these little feet when I was rummaging around. I think they look quite sweet on the card and they certainly helped me love my card lol. I just hope the girl who commissioned it and the mom of the twin's do too.

Looks like my day is going to be changed about because of the snow. I was going to go to the mall to pick up a few things for Jean but Suzy Q text to say the roads are really bad so I'll either get the train to EK or shovel my driveway!

Hope you have a great weekend....are you going to be building snowmen???

Catch ya later x

Snow!! - how glad I am that I live 'down south'. Take care.
Those twin babies are so cute and I reckon the little feet charms are the perfect finishing touch.

Kerry don't drive it in honey...my daughter's got a cheer comp today in Edinburgh and I dropped her off at the bus this morning...the roads were horrendous and that was with the 4 wheel drive on!!! I've just spent a very 'tummy testing' two hours for her to get to Edinburgh!!!!!!! All this for ONE dance!! I'm forecasting a drive through for my hubby to pick her up as the bus isn't due back until late tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a beautiful card. I love your Baby Baby set but I don't know anyone having a baby so I haven't indulged myself yet. Maybe I'll just have to though lol. Susan xx

We got a big snow again a couple of days ago too but yesterday it was almost 70 degrees so maybe this is Mother Natures last hurrah. Beautiful card, love the little charm feet. Your cards just get better and better!
