Winter Fun !!

 Afternoon Peeps!!
Its been a lovely morning again here in our little house!! 
The weather was pants and Mo fancied going to funfarm ( for my friends over the pond, funfarm is a mahoosive soft play adventure play area!) we got there for opening time and 2 hours later we had one very chilled, hot and tired little man!! we popped to get some shoping on our way home and Scott is watching the football so Mo and I are crafty pootling!!

I had a 3 challenges that I wanted to join in with so I decided to make a card that would include all 3!! they are...

I got my base already a la Jen's sketch. I embossed the top layer of white with my snow flurry embossing folder. I cut my skates and sentiment from my Winter woodland cart. The little swoosh behind them is from my storybook cart, its the fancy corner from the 'w'.
Here's a little side view so you can almost see the skates pooped up a little!!

I also doodled some dots on here and there with my black pen.
Now for the giggles.....do you have any idea how long it took me to get a piccy of a black and white card???!!! omgoodness!!! so 14 piccies later and I thought these 2 were ok!!!!

So I think thats me for today. I am going to spend the rest of my afternoon just tidying things a little while Mo is busy here next to me, he is being a huge help stealing all the little bits he fancies and popping them into his little cake slice shaped box I made a while ago ( which he also stole!! it is good for soldiers, buttons,leafs and stones and I am surprised it has survived this long!!!!)
I might even ink up my lurvely new gorjuss snowman stamp that Mo helped me to choose yesterday! ( I am determined to get a good run on cards this year as I was daftly behind again last year!!) 

Have a fabby rest of your sunday peeps!
huge hugs Lou xxx
