Well the weather man is right this time.They said this morning that east Anglia were going to get snow and we have. we have had loads. but I wish it was next week.
Its the first time our dog Tazz has seen snow and he loves it. we have had a laugh here this evening watching him,but now its getting to much as he just wants to be outside, keeps sitting by the back door. but its toooooooooo cold to be out there.
The roads are bad, doesn't look like gritters have been out. now we will see if the school is open in the morning. although I cant see the point as they finish at lunch time anyway.
Here's a few pics I have taken this evening of Tazz playing.

It is so cold out and windy. we have had power cuts too.
Who knows I may get to build a snowman with my daughter tomorrow.

Lots of crafting

But sadly I can not show you , as they are cards I am doing for a DT, and cannot show them here, its for my local craft shop. I have got 6 out of the ten made. so got to pull my finger out as they have to be in by the 12Th. But I do have just one card here that I hadn't up loaded of my camera.
I really am getting into these Magnolia stamps now. getting a nice collection of the Christmas ones. more work needed on my Colouring and shading, but hopefully that will come with time and practice.

Also this weekend I went with my sister to take my niece and nephew to see Santa, it was lovely,got a picture of JJ, but little Shana would not have hers taken.

Santa is at Fairymoon craft shop every weekend now until Christmas eve.
I really must get a move on, I haven't even started buying Christmas presents yet. Tree is still in the loft. mmmmmmmmmm someone give me a kick up the bottom. lol

hello on this very cold morning

OMG how cold is it this morning. I am frozen and finding it very hard to get motivated. Which is a must as I have cards to get made to enter into a DT for my local Craft shop Fairymoon crafts, They have just started their own blog to, which you can find here its not long been up and running , but looking fab so far.The girls at the shop are brill and if you ever need any advice pop in and see them, or if you are needing something they don't have in stock they will source it for you too.
Oh and they make a brill cuppa too. must write myself a note and remember to take some nice biccies or cakes next time I go in.

well I suppose I had better go and make myself a nice cuppa and get on with these cards or they wont be in b4 the deadline.

Enjoy your day all and wrap up its brass monkeys out there.
