A New Baby Boy Card ......

I have made this card for the following challenges;

Create 4 Fun challenge 23, I have used Bev's nice and simple sketch.

Cupcake Challenges 72 "a baby card".

Stampin for the Weekend "new beginings".

Papertake Weekly "new Beginings"

Crazy 4 Challenges, "Polka Dot Fun"

By the Cute and Girly, something "new"

I have used the gorgeous "vintage baby" stamp from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers, copic spica glitter pens, nesties, MME wild asparagus papers, DCWV c/s, ribbon, gems.

I thought I would post a picture of the snowy trees at the back of our garden, they do look lovely but getting to school was hard work today!!  I have had to put Philip into his 3 wheel pushchair and it just about managed to get through the snow but it was very slippy as there is ice under the fresh snow, if we get much more I think we will have to stay home.  I dont like driving in the snow, but as my car has been in the garage for 2 weeks, I just need it back to get around!!

We dont seem to have a problem with salt here, so I guess that is lucky, we have had days when no roads have been gritted, but again today they have gritted my road as both ways in and out are a long hill, they had filled the salt bin on the corner too, so I went out to get a little just to keep things clear for carrying Philip in and out, last week there wasn't a grain left but it was interesting to see how many had lovely clean drives while the road is packed with ice!!!  If that wasn't enough I saw a man pull up in his car in the lane at the school and get out a "large" bag and spade and fill his bag to take home!!  There are 2 schools and nursing home using the lane!!

Hope the snow is not too bad where you are, take care,

Angela  xx

I love this card it is so peaceful and quiet!! We still have lots of snow with ice underneath and no chance of our wee country road seeing a gritter. Tonight it is starting to drift and I have a wee VW Golf. Main Aberdeen to Peterhead road is very busy so it is well cleared. But steep hill from main road and since you need to really slow down it is a problem getting up the hill. Glad VWs are good in snow but I get scared by drifts. Daughter went to work and will have to stay with her brother in Aberdeen!!

Keep safe, hugs Kat xx
