Snowy Hugs

I did start this last night but didn't get it finished!...so a very good morning its now 5:30 am and I've been awake since 3:40 am awake which isn't unusual for me the past few months as I'm turning into a bit of a night owl !.It seem like an age since I posted a card. Its actually only been just over two weeks but seems longer!...I've been busy with work and not much else really...I've also been working all or part of most weekends recently which makes life a bit more difficult and its usually the time when I do my blog post; hence the reason for my lack of blog activity. Hasn't the weather changed too..summer has well and truly gone!...it feels like winter is here already...dark nights and early mornings have crept up on us;but it does mean its getting closer too Christmas... my favourite time of the year!

Christmas Hugs 

Close up with flowers

Unfortunately I'm working next weekend as well so I do need to plan my time a bit better or it will be at least another two weeks before im back again ...that a lot of catching up to do!
I'm still in Christmas card making mode and have several to post,today I've chosen a cute Tilda. It was one of my favourite stamps from last christmas. I've used traditional colours and craft card;the papers are HOTP that came as part of a vintage christmas set last year. I've used a square craft card and its the smallest card I've made so far.Hopefully all going well I will post another by the end of the week. 
and another close up
