Gosh cold isn't it?

Not much going on today in Cobham, Surrey as the snow that came down yesterday has now turned to ice and has made our whole cul-de-sac into a skating rink and only a few hardy souls have skidded their way out.

Here are a few shots from yesterday lunchtime  about 2 hours after the snow started in ernest.

From living room (too chicken to go outside and Iwas a bit worried I might turn into a snowman!)
View from the back of the living room to the side of the garden

View to side of garden once again showing the camellias and honeysuckle all frosted with the early snow. You can't see any of this now as it is all covered in one total layer of snow!

Although it all looks very pretty for about 24 hours I am official bored of it all now and dearly wish I was in South Africa in the 35 degree heat with Dean especially after the fantastic draw that the boys managed to pull off today!

Anyway back to some crafting, here is a card I made for a friends mother's 70th Birthday in December.
I am entering this in the ABC Challenge for this week which is L for Layering and there are plenty on this card!

This is a take on the Xmas quilt card I made a few weeks ago and I think it looks so pretty in these muted chocolate and pale pink colours

The paper panels have all been stamped using rubber stamp tapestry and the words are stamped using Janes Script.

The delish papers are from the Recency range from Papermania  with all four panels tied up with a ribbon which is attached to the back of the third section. Everything came from the Glitter Pot.

The third panel was finished off with a cute little butterfly from RST - garden of blue set
and Nicky and in particukar her mother were very pleased with it to so mission accomplished!

Ingredients - Stamps: Rubber Stamp Tapestry: Garden of Blue, Christmas Garland, Partridge in a Pear tree. Papers: Papermania Signature - Regency, coordinations and glitter paper from Stash. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Thanks for looking and I hope you are not  struggling too much in the snow if you are in the UK!
