Seasons Greetings


Another perfect image from Mo Manning for a CAS card, this time she is called Season's Greeting and she comes with a sentiment too. But I decided to use my new Penny Black Let it Snow die which Hubby brought me for my Birthday.
I cut out the sentiment first in the matching card of the Lawn Fawn papers and the cut it again twice in white so I could layer the Snow so it would stand out in the white.
The Spellbinders curved borders were use to cut the mat at the top and used a ribbon with a flat bow in hope in will go through the normal post slot to finish the card.
After a couple of days away, I of course needed a day to get over it but the day just went downhill the moment I got up. First the attempted burglary of the shed not sure if it was the defences we put in distracted them but they didn't get in and the door needed repairing. Then Mum was taken into hospital I think losing Dad this year and then her sister a couple of weeks ago has taken a toll, but she has bounce back from worse before. Just when you think thats enough my poor Sister in Law was admitted into the next bed to Mum in the MAU with acute kidney infection. I ended the day with a couple of large glasses of Wine.

Hi Debby! Oh I do appreciate it when you visit and comment. Thank you!

I adore this card - that little rascal truly is hanging on there, beautiful colours and design of course.

Sorry to hear things have been so fraught - hope things are looking better and that full health is soon restored to the hospital patients.

Thinking about the shed - have you thought about installing an alarm? It only needs to be battery driven but sure would make any would-be burglars stop in their tracks. Years ago we had one in a touring caravan and it was great!

Gorgeous card and gorgeous colours, pity there isn't a challenge to use a song title around as Blowing in the Wind comes to mind to me.
