Totally Gorjuss 161 - Oh no snow!

Good morning everyone. Hope you're all coping with the ice and snow if you have some. It's been a horrible week here in Aberdeenshire. Really cold most days and though we've not had much snow it has long since turned to ice. I think the worst part is that it was very icy before we had snow so the snow landed on top of ice which has made it reluctant to leave. Our drive and anywhere near at hand where we walk the dogs is still very icy so my kind hubby won't let me take the dogs out. That's lucky for me cos they're big and strong and when they see snow they think it's playtime! I'm very scared when it's icy underfoot as I broke my leg and ended up in traction for a while when I was only two. I didn't fall on ice, I fell on a slippy floor at the baby clinic when I was there for a jag!! Imagine having a slippy, polished floor in a place like that. Wouldn't happen nowadays, but then it was a long time ago! I don't like driving on ice but I have to do it to get to work.

But I'm waffling and it's time to tell you about our challenge at Totally Gorjuss. This week the challenge is "Oh no snow." Ideal for a Christmas card and our sponsor is Crafter's Companion. I don't know if you've visited them recently but they have some great offers just now so it's worth having a look at their website.

So after all that waffle, here's my card. I thought Oliver might like this one.

I used :-
Image :- Wild Rose Studio.
Colouring :- Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
Sentiment :- Crafty Impressions.
Corners :- Whimsy Die.
Glamour Dust and pearls.

I'm scheduling this as I've never got time to write it on a Saturday morning before work so I'll catch up later. I'm hoping to go and write some cards now. I'd really like to get them posted soon. Don't think I've been as early as this with my cards for a long time! I've still got 3 of my family cards to do and I seem to have quite a few spare ones this year. I must have got a bit carried away making them lol.

I'm sure there must be some challenges this card fits but I'll look after work.

Everybody Art :- Christmas.
Simon Says Stamp :- Snowflakes
 Crafty Creations :- Winter Scene.
Charisma :- Christmas.
Paperplay :- Christmas is coming.
Fussy and Fancy :- I Love Christmas.
Stampin' for the Weekend :- Let it Snow.
Totally Papercrafts :- One for the Boys.

Thanks for looking and thanks also to the few people who regularly leave me kind comments. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
