Papertake Weekly "Let it Snow"

Finally feeling better. Has taken me 3 weeks to get over this horrible cold which took away all my energy and mojo. Together with the fact that my knee is still very painful after my fall. So hopefully I will be on the mend again.

This week it's my kids favorite theme at Papertake - Let it snow. They are all hoping for snow this winter - especially Phoebe as she has not really experienced it. I used these cute snowmen from Sugar Nellie's Home Grown series. They are just perfect.

High Hopes No. 7

This is a first for me - my first High Hopes challenge. I love these stamps but don't have a lot as there are so many cute stamps out there and a limited budget it's hard to choose lol.
This sweet giraffe is 1 of my favorite stamps as he (and the other jungle friends) are so super for all cards. This 1 is for my dad and inside read "You have been around for a looooooong time".

The Secret Crafter No. 7

The theme this week over by The Secret Crafters is "Cute as a button" and Tilda certainly fits that bill. The huge flower is handmade to suit the colours I have used. The "greenish" paper at the back I have coloured using pastels - again to fit in with the colours.

Just to let you know that I am still here but have been rather ill the last few weeks. Hopefully on the mend now and back to taking up various challenges.

Sketch Saturday 23

This is a super sketch from the ladies at Sketch Saturday. I really enjoyed making this card and I think I will send this to my granma (she's 86 and I love her a lot).
