Jolly Follies and Snow Dog !!!


Thanks for all your kind comments - i'm feeling back to normal now, thank goodness.

Am i the only person who is fed up with the snow !!! - we got well and trully dumped on, on Wednesday night (we now have 12 inches) - before that we had had 2-3 inches - so with the 2 days i had in Yorkshire last weekend and the 3 days i've had back in Sussex, i'm now officially over the snow and want to get out and about again and go to Toysrus and get my son an Xmas pressie, as Toysrus are the cheapest place round here for the V-Tech Storio.

Oooo i went craft shopping in Cas (Castleford, West Yorkshire) market last weekend and bought loads of lace and it only cost me £2.14 - i was shocked, as back in Sussex, it would have cost me probably 3 times the amount !!!, so watch out for me using more lace on my cards now.

With todays card - i thought i would stop stroking my Basic Grey - Figgy Pudding papers (that i've had for a year !!!) and finally use them (i do have the 12x12 papers as well, so it does easy the blow at little), i've layered it up on pearlescent silver card (i hope it shows up) to finish off i've used a snowflake charm (that i bought at the NEC) and some lush Stampin Up ribbon (that i think i may buy a reel of now, as i only have a metre of it, as i bought it in ribbon share).

Right onto todays Card and Challenges
