Me and my little Mo in the snow!!!

I am an extremely lucky mummy in that I work where my little boy goes to nursery. For the first time in a very long time we have had snow that you can actually play in in the UK, don't get me wrong, we do get a little snow from time to time but this time it was real, fluffy, play out for ages and make snowmen snow!!!
Yesterday the children were so excited we threw all ideas of what we had planned away and went outside!! wooo hooo!!! I am so pleased I got to experience this with Mo.
He was having a lovely time playing with all his little friends and it was so much fun for the grown ups too!!! snowballs were flying everywhere!!
My manager had her camera to take pictures for the parents and clicked this one of me and Mo and I love it.One of my lovely friends at work emailed this to me tonight, I had seen it but only tiny so I was so pleased to recieve it.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I don't do photo's of me unless I am forced so this is such a treasure for me to have and I wanted to share it with you all.

Paper Angels -Team one february challenge entry!

Yipppee!!! its friday!!!! oh I am so pleased it is the weekend, with the snow it has been a really tireing week. My new mats arrived yesterday so I was able to get the cutting done for my february team one card.
This card seemed like such a good idea as I was desperate to try embossing acetate ( don't ask me why, i just thought it would look nice!!!) I am not great at pictures which is a shame as this card looks so nice in 'real' life!!! lol!!! I tried to take lots of photos to get the views of the card so sorry if you get bored of looking at it!!!!
I used the plantin certificate for the base of the card and welded my LOVE from the storybook cart to it, then I layerd up the word LOVE with foam squares to make it stand out and gave it a little bling with glitter glue. When the glitter glue was dry I put 3d glaze on it. Then I used the hearts from doodlecharms and inked the edges and put a tiny I and U on them.Lots of doodledots on the inside of the card and more inking,I cut the certificate again in patterned paper to make the inside pretty. I cuttlebugged my acetate with divine swirls and then glued it behind the LOVE. Here is the link to the thread where all the other amazing creations from the team I am in are going:
I will pop the link for team 2 on too when they post it as the creations everybody makes are wonderful and it is such fun. Thankyou for peeping xxxx
