Well it's looks like it's going to snow from 5am tomorrow morning and last all day - Alan is supposed to be going to Tunbridge Wells, but i've told him not to go, but whether or not, he'll listen to me, is another matter!!!

I have decided to colour the bear in yellow today for a change, as i wanted to colour the basket in, in shades of brown.  I treated myself to some new Valentine papers - First Edition - 'J'Adore' (and i particularly like the peach and blue / green papers) and i've also used my new Sizzix Heart dies, flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls are The Hobby House.
