Let it snow .......

Well, they forecast snow and snow it did !!!

We are fortunate here that we don't normally experience the extreme weather conditions that other parts of the country suffer from but we did get some 'proper' snow yesterday.
It snowed constantly for hours and we ended up with about 6 inches (measured with a ruler and not the optimistic male estimate lol ) and even more in places where it drifted. The schools closed at lunchtime and even Hubby left work and started the weekend early.
This is the snowman that Isabel has been making this morning now the blizzard has stopped.......

At least she didn't put her Wolves scarf on him !

Once I'd thawed out from the trek to school yesterday I decided to make the most of the wintry conditions and 'cook up' my January batch of Christmas cards. Of course it had to be Snowflake Soiree again and this is what I came up with....

The snowflakes are stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with white onto Midnight Muse card. Hope you can see on this picture the gorgeous blizzard effect created by using Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz

You are right if you can detect an air of 'smugness' as I have now completed 30 Christmas cards and it feels good !

Most of our plans for the weekend have been postponed but I am quite happy to continue my hibernation and keeeeep crafting !  Stay safe x
