snow joke...


Good morning everyone...sorry for the pun I couldn't resist using it for my card today and had to use it in the title too lol...you know the days when you go in your craft room and the bug gets you, I had one of those yesterday and made 5 cards and coloured 8 images, hows that for a roll...poor Phil spent most of his evening in the rain with a friend looking at our Daughters car which for lack of a better word conked out, no idea why at the time it just stopped dead...luckily Phil's friend is a mechanic and had some computer equipment in his car that he could wire up to the car to tell what was wrong...so its a faulty battery which isn't tragic but bad enough for a young couple struggling with Christmas coming up so we offered to buy her a new one but little miss independence wants to sort it out herself...but she knows we are here if she needs us I guess...sometimes we just have to let our kids get on with things don't we no matter how hard it is not to butt your nose in lol...right now onto my card for today, how cute and funny is this poor little snowman, he reminds of accident prone me (btw I fell out the door the other day oops lol)...hes from Teddy Bo's Fairy Doodler and is called Pencil sketch Melted Man...I love the Pencil sketch images Gayle does don't you...they have so much character and are really lifelike...I coloured this cutie with distress inks and glittered the edges so he would just catch the light and look frosty...the amazing papers I teamed him up with are from Cosmo Crickets Dear Mr Claus range and is called Santa's letters...I love the lettered side don't you...I cut some out to make the sentiment and finished with a strip of lush lace from Kars...the fab sketch is from the Crafty Creations challenge and I'm also entering it for the Teddy Bo Challenge and Whimsy Stamps challenge too...Its supermarket day with my lovely Dad today and time to do a bit more Christmas shopping I think...I have a huge list to get through...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and wherever you are I hope its warmer than it is here

Love me some Teddy Bo. This little guy has so much personality and the papers blend perfectly.
Life has been in the way of my blogging lately so I am catching up today. Just caught up on your posts and here's a synopsis of my opinions:

Beautiful creations Mina as always
Good choice on pants and top
Beautiful, peaceful new spot for you and Phil
Phil's photography skills are indeed brilliant.
Tie a bow on Mina and give it to Phil for Christmas.
Love to you Mina. :)
