When i went outside this morning it felt as though it was the lull before the dreaded Snow !! - i so hate it, as we always seem to get cut off, as when you turn right out of my road you go over a bridge and that always gets so packed up with ice, that it is impossible to go over, let's hope when it comes, it doesn't stay for long.

I would just like to welcome my new follower : Laura Vi.

I was also wondering if anyone could help me, since getting a new laptop, i don't know now to put my name on my cards, please help, thanks.

I was feeling very guilty, as out of all the Christmas cards i made last year, i never used my all time favourite 'Snowy', so i have remedied that today, as he looks so good in Blue.  The papers are a very old Dovecraft pack - 'Winter Wonderland', ribbon again is from an old Papermania Ribbon Collection, that has never been opened before !!, the sentiment is PB - 'Each Friend'

Today's Card And Challenges :

Cupcake Craft - where the Challenge is 'January Blues'

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - where they are up to Sketch No: 188 -189

Without Words - where January's Challenge is 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' - I hope it's CAS enough for you

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where January's Challenge is 'January Blues' (No: 2 card)

Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 251 is 'Beat The Blues'

Image - Penny Black - 'Snowy'
Sentiment - Penny Black - 'Each Friend'
Papers - Dovecraft - 'Winter Wonderland'
Ribbon - Papermania - 'Ribbon Collection Spots & Check - Blue'

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x

Sam, you card is adorable. I love the sentiment and happy little snowman. I use Picasa. You can download it free and adjust all your photos, add your name, crop and etc. just goggle it. It is a great program to use and you can also upload your images to blogger right from it. Hope that helps.
Thanks for joining us.
