Monday had a busy weekend - and my cold came out just in time for the weekend - great...can't take any time off work as there is no one else here apart from Friday off so aiming for there....
Went Sloe picking on Saturday to make Sloe Gin....made 18 bottles Sloe Gin and 1 Sloe Whisky...there are sooooo many Sloes out ready for the picking...bumper year this year, and then stewed apples forever for the freezer...and put away my summer clothes and pulled out my winter ones....though off shopping on Friday as I can't seem to fit all of it...what an excuse!.
Today's card is for the Lili of the Valley Challenge #65...Got this stamp at Harrogate craft it..Hope I have followed the sketch ok...glittered some snowflakes to hopefully bring the card together...
And hard to see as my camera hands are not too brilliant at the moment...glosses the pillar box...and stickled the snow.
Also entered this card in for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything goes
Thanks for popping by - hope it is warmer with you than it is here!
