Blue Christmas

It is snowing again here this morning and I'm getting worried:  a. I've not got any presents yet - am I going to be able to get out to the shops over the next couple of days? b. Will the family be able to get here for Christmas? c. Will the post office be able to deliver the gifts etc already ordered - better not order any more! d. Last but definitely not least, will we be able to bring Mum here from the care home?  Oh dear, although it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas the snow can really make it stressful!
Hopefully this will be the last Christmas card for this year - but I'm not making any promises! This card does kind of suit the day today lol - the image is a stamped one from Heritage rubber stamps which I coloured with watercolour pencils and the paper is Basic Grey. The snowflake brads came from Woodware and the sentiment was a freebie from Bizzy Becs.

I'm entering this for the following challenges:
