LET IT SNOW............................NO!!

Afternoon all!

Well have you had any snow yet?, well it's getting very cold in Essex and it will be with us tomorrow grrrrr.
Glad I have finished most of my Xmas shopping now and I have just the fresh food to buy on Wednesday yippee!!
So straight onto today's card and I have used a cute stamp from Sugar Nellie that I haven't used for a very long time. I have teamed this little sweetie with one of my fave paper pads from BasicGrey "Cappella" and some snowflakes, very appropriate don't you think lol!

This little lady is going into the following challenges :-
MAWTT ~ let it snow!
The Sugar Bowl # 49 ~ Marie-Therese's Sketch with Snowflakes
Papertake ~ Christmas Birthdays
Alphabet ~ H for Hats
Fussy & Fancy ~ Show us some Snow!
