The One when James made a Snow Angel

Good Morning, my lovely blog chums.....I do hope that you've been having a good weekend.  The time has almost come for my hubby's shielding to be "paused", and as our restrictions have lessened, we have ventured out to the shops, a few times....have a few masks on rotation here, my favourite is a super pretty, Cath Kidston style floral print, which I am saving for best - can't even believe that I am typing those words, what have our lives become! Personally,  I  still don't intend to be going too far, or anywhere too peopley, but I guess we have to find our way in this funny old world.

I have another Christmas card, for the box, to share today.....
I am using the cutie that is James, from LOTV-snow angel stamp. I am using the good old Promarkers to colour. I used stickers 
to create the snow effect. The textured snowflake paper is from a Martha  Stewart stack, the dotty paper is from a trimcraft stack. Have used a faux stitched square die, and two snowflake dies - one from Joaana Sheen, and one from Marianne. Button added for effect. Own sentiment, using Cinnamon cake font.

I would like to enter these challenges please:

Just wanted to add one little picture, from my garden Last year Megan came home from the garden centre with what I thought was some kind of grass, she said 'it will come back next year", so I've planted it, cared for it.......and this is the reward

  2. Hi Lisa

    Lovely colours on this little beauty.

    You made me smile when you said you were keeping one of your masks for best. We have been using the disposable ones but I am making my way up into the roof space to see what fabric I have that will be suitable to make some re-usable ones. Much more environmentally friendly.

    Your surprise plant is beautiful! Nice when flowers come back every year.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

    Love Jules xx

  7. I agree with you - I'm hardly venturing out much and find large crowds of people now really unnerve me! How quickly we get used to the new normal - I think here in the UK we are much more aware too and keeping our distance more. No holidays for us this year - your Christmas card is gorgeous - I love that image and all the lovely papers you've added - thanks for joining us at Sparkles Christmas Challenge.
