Snow Trot

Hi,

Well boiler man didn't start job yesterday, so i'm still lovely and warm, but he will be coming Monday instead and OH is bringing home an electric heater from work and hopefully it will only be for 1 night.

Tomorrow we are taking 3 year old to his first Panto - oh no we're not, i hear you cry, oh yes we are !!! - we are taking him down to Southampton to see Paul O'Grady and he's bringing Lily Savage (i so love Lily, so we are really going because of me, but you need an excuse to go and ours is Son ) back to life for the very last time in Aladdin.

Right, i hoping this is the last Christmas card i'm doing this year, as i have 2 Mothers Days cards to do for mid January and as it's son's birthday on the 3rd and his party on the 9th - so i can't forsee me being able to get on with making cards for a while !!!

I chose this sketch as it enabled me to use the DCWV papers that i love, but they are 4.5" x 6.5", so you are limited on the sketch / design you can use !!!,  plus i love the bright and funky colours and so does son.
