Let it snow

Good morning everyone,

After a heatwave of over 10 days we are having lovely cool rainy weather...what bliss and with the cooler weather, the temperature dropped overnight from 34deg. C to 17deg.C, the theme for this month's challenge...winter/let it snow.. at  Let's Craft and Create  ....  just seems a little more bearable, even though winter and snow is only in our dreams at the moment.

The DT have made such gorgeous cards for inspiration, so I do hope you will pop over and leave them some love. It is the perfect time to get those cards done for the festive season if you haven't yet done so,

My card is quite a simple one, saw a similar design on the internet somewhere and again using my stash.

The paper is the last piece I have over of this design.....

I made snowflakes from an old Cuttlebug die. and added glitter and a little bling.

The Christmas tree is cut from a piece of Christmas paper with  Marianne Designs die.

A peeloff provided the sentiment.

Entering the following challenges:

Crafting by Designs....Anything goes
Crafty Creations  #403 ...Anything goes
The Sisterfood of Crafters ...Trees
The Paper Funday #12... Christmas holiday
Craftyhazelnut's challenge ...Patterned paper

Thanks for coming by and I hope to be back soon

Love, Ursula

Something very different

Hello friends,
This time I am not posting anything papercraft related. I have in the past, very rarely posted about my other hobbies. Crochet has been the main one the last few years, in fact since moving to our lovely retirement village. I have and am still enjoying this very much, doing lots of projects for 2 local charity groups

Now it is time to try something very new...I have started making bobbin lace.
I had my first lesson about 4 weeks ago and have just finished my first project. 

I am certainly enjoying this relaxing hobby, hope it will stay relaxing, but am very keen to learn lots more.

I will be back tomorrow, with a card this time......

Love, Ursula
