Christmas is over but the snow goes on!

Yesterday was the only day for about a week that the sun shone and it didn't snow here in South East Scotland. Our outlook has been white for around 10 days and there is no sign of a real thaw yet. One one hand when we don't have to go anywhere it's lovely to look at but it unfortunately it meant half the family had to stay home at the other end of the country and weren't able to join us for Christmas, we did manage to have 9 for Christmas dinner which was very enjoyable if quieter than usual!

I have been suffering a bit from a nasty cold, my first for a long time, so I have been living very quietly for the past few days and not much crafting or blogging has been going on, however today I did manage to make a couple of cards one of which is a DT card for later in the week so I'll keep that under wraps for now but have this one to show.

I used my new Nellie Snellen dies for the oval and the ribbon slider (thanks Lyns!) and Basic Grey backing papers. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

I'm entering this for the following challenges:
Magical Crafts Challenge - Thank You
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Thank You
Roses on Paper Challenge - Colour with Favourite Medium (Promarkers)
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
