It's been one of those weekends (and that's the reason why it has taken me 4 days to complete this card !!) :
a) H got poked in the eye with a pencil at a Halloween party on Friday night - he's ok, but it took me about half an hour to calm him down and the mother of the child that did it, just spoke to me, so matter of factly, where i would have been absolutely mortified !!
b) I've gained a hacking cough - i think it's something to do with the fact i've had the flu jab !!
c) My next door neighbours husband got taken into hospital on Friday night and his wife was Phoned by the hospital (can you believe it) on Saturday morning, to say he had passed away in the night.
I liked the idea of Winter Wonderland's Challenge where you have to use 3 punches and as i had seen at PaperArts in Gloucester (when i visited there in June), where you could make a circle out of the MS - Skyland Snowflake, i decided to have a play with a circle card, the other 2 punches are MS - Snowflake Border and an X-Cut Circle, that i used to stamp the greeting on. The papers are Craftwork Cards - Frosty Christmas (that i got for half price), the background card is pearlescent white (but not sure if camera picks this up) and i've coloured the scarf and the ear muffs on the image with Stickles.
