A Sunny Morning to You!!

Have woken up a bright sunny morning but very chilly indeed. The view from my back window is glorious with the hills covered in snow. Nature is a wonderful thing. Sometimes the neighbours must think I'm a Peeping Tom - as I can stand & stare at the hills for ages, mesmerised by them.............
Anyway, I've popped 2 cards on that I had made last night for the Kaboodle and Spoon full of Sugar challenges. The 1st one is for Kaboodle, the theme was 'Vintage'.

The theme for Spoon full of Sugar is 'Torn' and I kept singing that song all the time I was making it. Can't guarantee it was the right words I was but the tune anyway.

Sugar Nellie's 'Dressing-up Maggie' is one of my favourite stamps and I had a shot of Lesley's promakers to colour her in. Her necklace I went over with silver stickles. The backing paper and flowers are from stash.
