"Brrrrrr, its cold outside"

Hi folks, hope you all have had a great weekend. We've had a good one trying to make the most of our time together as the kiddiwinkles go back to school on Monday, well my son goes Monday and my little baby girl goes Wednesday morning. At the beginning of the hols I was thinking oh my god seven weeks but its been great and I really dont want them to go back I wish I could have just one more week. Its going to seem so quiet. I think what makes it worse is my son is going up to junior school yr 3 he's growing up so fast into a well mannered and intelligent boy we're so lucky, but then I'm just biased. Anyway, enough of my ramblings and feeling sorry for myself I'm sure I'll get back into the swing of things in no time.

As promised I've managed to finish off my first Crimbo card of the year. I used an old sketch from Friday Sketchers to help with the layout as I find it doesnt come that easily with me and I need a little help with layouts as otherwise my cards just end up looking all the same and quite flat.

Decided to decorate the inside quite simply have just added some tiny punched snowflakes to the background paper, but they don't show up that well.
The stamp used is a Sugar Nellie "Snowflake" from Funky Kits and coloured with my copics. Had to have a bit of glitter on her but I don't think my piccie shows it. I do apologise I'm no photographer. Sorry not sure what the papers are, but I know next time I will choose my papers first before I colour and not the other way round as I so had trouble matching up colours, but its a lesson learned.
Anyway, got to dash as I need to do some last minute checks just to make sure I've got everything ready for school, but knowing me I've probably forgotten something!
Thank you for dropping by it is very much appreciated and any comments are most welcome I love to know you popped in. Have a great day, see you soon.
