Before The Snow


Ok this is going to be a very quick post tonight, as i'm absolutely shattered - OH drove myself, H and his mum to my lovely friend Celias for 9am and we only got in 20 mins ago !! - H and MIL went to see 'Numberjacks' with Celia, Chloe and Joshua, then they had a Halloween treasure hunt and poor Celia has cooked us all lunch and dinner too.

Todays cards colours are a little different for me - green and gold, but i thought they were good for a Male Christmas Card, plus i wanted to have a play with some unused items - the stamp and the embossing folder and also combine both types of embossing - dry and heat. Sorry about the quality of the photo, but the light really doesn't seem to like the Metallic Gold Card.
