Hi everyone are you snowed in we are 6" has fallen  altogether and although looking out of my window is like winter wonderland I can't get to the main road today so Christmas Shopping has been postponed until tomorrow hopefully ...... yes you heard right still have some to do not panicking ....much mostly food and DD was off work due to snow yesterday and walked to shops and she reported manic shoppers everywhere so she went home again, Oh well it is Christmas! I will do battle with the shops tomorrow and take DH to carry everything.

In between housework (only done at special times) and getting ready for the onslaught of family Christmas day if they can get here, baking and generally being a home goddess ....... one has to do ones duty at this time of year....... I have been crafting and making cards.

This one is for my Grandson who is very excited and I spoke to him on the phone today and we talked about Father Christmas coming in his sleigh and this year there is enough snow for him to glide over and he will not have to fly... also Rudolph will need plenty of carrots as it is very cold...... he was squealing with excitement by the time we had finished our conversation and was off to look at the roof in case Santa's sleigh had been there already as there would be tracks in the snow, (he is nearly 6) ahhhh bless so I expect DS was very pleased I called..................... anyway enough gossiping here is my card "snowpeople" love snow people which I will be entering into the Gingersnap Creations GC81 Snowpeople challenge. I made a shaker card which he loves cut out shape with nesties embossed the acetate with a Sizzix swirl folder, which I think makes it look like your looking through a frosted glass, the card was also embossed with same folder, stamp  is one I have had for years and years and there is no name on it, coloured with copics pens had to put red in somewhere as it it his favourite colour, ribbon and scallop punch Stampin' Up!

Better go now and ice the Christmas Cake will try to post others tomorrow if I have survived the shops!!!

Bye for now
