a new hair colour...

Good morning everyone I think Winter is definitely here don't you, we have frosty mornings and cold nights now and the extra blanket has gone onto our bed, I love blankets, the soft fluffy ones don't you...or are you a duvet person...my wonderful Dad isn't doing too well atm he discovered a lump in his side and the Doctor has said he has a hernia, its quite painful and as he walks with crutches it gets worse as the day goes on, so he will need an operation, I feel sick at the thought, he is 78 and has COPD and how worried will we be when he has to go through an operation, the Doctor has said he will get it done soon too, I know he will be fine and of course it isn't affecting him at all hes taking it in his stride, well I suppose one of us has to remain calm and not run round like a headless chicken lol...right now onto my card for today...I have another Sugar Nellie Adorable to show you today...ooohhhh and I tried out my new inks and look at the beautiful Winifred's hair, its from the Autumn series and is called Gathered Twigs, isn't it a fantastic colour for hair, sort of a reddish brown...lush isn't it, I was impressed with the colours as I thought they wouldn't be different but they are...more results to come I promise...I teamed the amazing Winifred up with these lush papers from a Making Memories 8x8 Noel speciality paper pack I bought a long time ago and of course I had to add a bit, well ok a lot of glitter to her shoes and the edges of the cut out holly...I finished with some buttons as berries and a couple for decoration...the sentiment is from the same paper pack, the fab sketch is from Stampin' for the Weekend and Im also entering this for the Simon Says Stamp challenge, Creative Inspirations challenge and Winter Wonderland challenge too...I'm having a crafting day today as I have some DT work to catch up and I need lots more playtime with my new inks (any excuse lol)...whatever your up to today wrap up warm and stay away from frosty spots
