WELL THE SNOW HAS ARRIVED!.......................

Evening all!

Well it has arrived and if fell down :o(. The poor staff all arrived late for work but the patients didn't!, how does that work lol. The whole of Essex ground to a stand still, ohhhh we so don't cope with a few inches of snow how said is that lol!.

Right onto tonight's card. This sweet image is an old fave of mine from Sugar Nellie and she hasn't been inked up for a very long time ( bad girl! ). I have used one of my new paper pads from BasicGrey "Curio", oh I love this pad for its vintage feel.

Hi Vicky

A lovely make.

Love your papers and image choice. It is lovely to get out a stamp that we haven't used in a while isn't it.

I recognise that sketch and the "jaunty" angle of the image LOL!!!

We have had quite a bit of snow now. I dread to think what the roads will be like tomorrow if it freezes.

I know why the patients make it to the hospital and the staff don't .. .. the poor patients have been pacing the floor in nervous anticipation for hours before they leave their home super duper early!! It is a bit different for the staff.

Hope it isn't too bad in the morning for you.

Love Jules xx
