I hope you are all snug and cosy ths evening. It is freezing here and snowing again. We must have about 7-8 inches now. I am just about to prepare for the morning. I have looked out my walking boots and gaiters as I will need to walk to work tomorrow. I doubt if the car will be going anywhere for a while.
I have been playing with ideas for quick Christmas cards as time is marching on and I still have plenty to make.
I used this Rubber Stampede stamp I have had for years and quickly coloured it with chalks and glitter.

I have been meaning to post this card with another of Ruth's new images, but I just don't have much time to blog at the moment. I go to my Dads most days after work to check if he is eating and needing anything done. My Dad is keeping not too bad, he is very tired after his treatment and has lost his appetite.
This card was made with Ruth's church. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted but it is pleasing .
I used Papermania papers, Promarkers, Stickles and a PB sentiment.

I used Tilda, Promarkers, Martha Stewart punch, Craft Creations papers, Sizzlets letters, Stickles, Nesties and the rest from my stash.
