Festive Wishes

Postman's Been...

.......... and he has brought a parcel from Lili of the Valley with some goodies that I had ordered - woo hoo!!!  Nice postie, he has cheered me up away from this weather as it hasn't risen from the minus all day.  What better way to take the blues away than to play at my table.

The teddy topper is from some of my new LOTV stash, great for making some quick Christmas cards, I just added some stickles to give him a bit of sparkle.  I couldn't help treated myself to their fabby circle sentiment stamps (which fit just perfect in my circle Nesties).  Also used on this card is my old faithful embossing folders from Cuttlebug.  Ribbon, flowers and leaf punch are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

Chilly Tuesday

Good morning to you all and I hope you are all keeping warm this chilly morning (-14 here).  Well, not at work again due to the condition of the roads.  They are shocking, my poor Barry was one of the many hundreds of travellers caught-up in the massive gridlock on the Central Scotland roads.  He was struck from 11am in the morning and never moved for over 8 hours, eventually the queue moved enough for him to take a slip road off the motorway and by luck he knew the back roads and made a very slow and slippery journey and got home the back of midnight very tired and hungry!!!.  There was alot of people, elderly and families had to spend the night in their vehicles in that cold weather - it must have been horrific!!!

So it is another day in the house with the heating on full blast to keep the chill away.  There is nothing else for it but to have a wee play at the table.  The image is Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm.  The design paper is from DCVW.  Diecut snowflakes from Sizzix and sentiment printed off computer.  The challenges I have covered are:-
