WE HAVE SNOW GRRRRR...............................LOTS!

Evening all!

Yep we have snow, not a little but LOTS! Around 6" has fallen in two hours and there is more to come :o(
So glad I'm not at work tomorrow and I have finished most of my shopping. Before you ask, Neil Diamond was just awful (He had the worst wig ever and I thought he looked more like Elvis on a bad day!)  and so was the food yuck! had loads to drink tho' to get through the evening and had to laugh otherwise I think I would have cried lol!. Had a little boogie too and the DJ must of been 80 give or take a day and yes he was the worst DJ ever lol!

Anyway, enough about my night out and onto tonight's card. I have used one of my little gorjuss girls from Sugar Nellie I haven't used for ages and some free papers from a magazine. My camera never seems to like white paper very much, so the piccies look slightly blue to me, what do you think??

This cutie is going into the following Challenges :-
Creative Inspirations # 91 ~ Sketch
Cute Card Thursday # 143 ~ One for the Kids

Little Miss Attitude ~ Sugar Nellie

Lovely card Vicky, Got quite a springlike feel to it. Hope you stay safe & warm. We had snow on top of ice - & not even the major roads had been treated, so it was treacherous taking my daughter to work today. xx

Hiya Vicky,

Wow, GORJUSS is all I can say!! Absolutely Fab-U-Lous!! Love it hon :o)

Can't wait for strictly tonight - Go Kara, Go Kara, Go Kara... lol!! Was meant to be going out with the netball girlies but was cancelled due to the snow - we have had loads today too and just waiting for the next dumping! I thought we were meant to have better weather in the South East, lol!

See you soon hon

Debbie said...

Hi Vicky...Oh no looks like we are all in trouble with the snow. We had about 4" and it's so thick, I did not have plans to go out, so I was ok.
This card is gorjuss!!
Those papers are beautiful and free, what more cud you want.
I think the photo is great, not a bit bluey!
See you later Debbiexx

Hi Vicky, love this very pretty card, fab layout and your flowers are gorgeous. Sorry your night out was a bit of a let down, I hate it when that happens, at least there's xmas to look forward to. I really love watching the kids open their pressies, can't wait. That snow sounds bad, you keep safe and warm love.

Ooo, this is so pretty Vicky! I love the pastel colours. Sorry to hear your night out was so bad, lol!

Just hoping the snow clears this week - my daughter is supposed to be travelling down from Edinburgh on Christmas Eve!

Donna said...

Gorgeous little card Vicky, such pretty papers and flowers and fab colouring too! It took us nearly 4 hours yesterday to drive from Brentwood to Herts...not a good journey and we are mostly snowed in today...shame it didn't happen this time next week lol! :) Donna x

Shelly said...

Hello Vicky! Oh I've missed so many of your gorgeous creations... I haven't blogged for a week and can see you've been very busy! This little card is so so pretty, and I love how you've used an image that's been collecting dust (I have many like this)! Sorry to hear you night out wasn't up to much, just aswell there was alcohol! Having said that, I won't even be having a night out... we live in the back of beyond with NO decent places to go out!!! Oh I do miss the UK sometimes... and being a Geordie I wasn't short of a place or two for a good night out, now I just craft lol!!! Well a girl has to do something to amuse herself! Hope you're not too bothered by the snow... we had lots too last night but the rain today has turned it all into a slushy mess! Hugs Shelly x

Whisper said...

Oh what a sweetie.

We were lucky this time with snow only 2 cms, just hoping it's clear enough so we can take 3 year old to see Santa on Wednesday on a train !!!, Luv Sam x
