Singing Angels


All our snow has gone, thank goodness - i do hope all of you lovely people who were seriously dumped on last night are ok ?, friends of ours that live in Halifax posted a photo on Facebook and Alan's dad also told us when we phoned him in Castleford this morning.  H is hoping that rugby (well tag rugby, as he is 6) is on tomorrow, as he hasn't been able to play for a couple of weeks, due to the snow and him running a temperature.

The stamp i've used today is brand new for me - the other week i saw Bunny Zoe Crafts had 40% off of HM stamps and thought i would treat myself to a set, i chose this one, as i thought it would go great with my Marianne D - 'Holly Die'(I bought after seeing the lovely Lisa / Wishcraft use it, you are such a bad influence on my bank balance hun, :-) ) and my Echo Park - 'Season's Greetings', both of which have not been used yet !! The punched edge is MS - 'Cherish'.

House Mouse - where Challenge HMFMC No: 136 is 'New Beginnings' - I went for new stash - stamp, holly die and papers

Fabulous card, love the holly round the die cut and the really sweet image.
I only live a few miles from Halifax and it did come down thick and quick last night but the roads are now fine.

Beautiful Christmas card Sam - love the image and the colours you have used. Our snow has gone too much to Bella's disgust as she loves it. Wanted to say thank you for your help with how to put candy onto my blog really appreciated it. You have inspired me to make a Christmas card with a stamp I bought last year and have not used yet. Love Alison xx
