It's official....


...winter has arrived!! Take a look...










The first picture is from my bedroom window early this morning and the rest when I took the pups to Cathkin Braes late afternoon. They love the snow and it's so comical to watch them chase a snowball only for it to explode when it lands lol. After we got home I cleared the driveway..why I don't know as it looks like it's going to snow again. Also had to dig Nicole's car out...she popped in for dinner last night and to watch the X Factor...fell asleep as she always does...Ben arrived on the train and when they tried to leave their car couldn't get up the hill so they had to stay the night. We dug, salted and I pushed her on her way :-D

Here's a wedding card I made a few weeks ago. You might be shocked because it isn't WOW lol and I'll admit that I found it difficult to use coloured cs and pp but I got there in the end. See what you think...

I was super busy over the weekend ... rolled up my sleeves and got stuck into my Christmas cards. I thought I chose pretty easy images to colour which they are ...when you're colouring one!! I finished cutting out most of the first 18 cards, coloured the images and now I just have to put them together and add all the sparkle.
Today is the last day to get November's SOTM (I know it's December but the SOTM starts the first Tuesday of the month ;-D ) as tomorrow is a brand spankin' new one and our Guest Designers are making their LCI debut!!!!!!
Ok..must get going...I've a few cards to make for tomorrow and the clock's a ticking!
Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the snow if it comes your way.
Catch ya later x

I also saw some snow today when we were driving towards Heraklion. There's snow on mount Ida, Crete's highest mountain, lol. In Heraklion, on the other hand, the sun was shining brightly and we had a coffee out on the terrace. It's a good thing we left our coats in the car!
Love the card. This image is my favourite of the wedding stamp set, followed closely by the wedding cake. Also love the mat you've used. It reminds me of the old films...and they rode off into the sunset...The End, lol.
