From the Frozen North

This week in Scotland we've been given a bit of insight to what it might be like to live in one of the Scandinavian countries, it has snowed for eight days out of the last ten and the snow is now up nearly to the level of our windows. The trees look gorgeous all covered in white and when the sun shines, as it is now, our world looks stunning but sooo cold! Schools are back after a full week off (Evan is very grumpy - he would prefer to be tucked up in bed all morning!), buses are running again after a complete stoppage yesterday so Owen will be able to get into town to see his girlfriend, and the pavement outside our house has been cleared by one of the little snowploughs so at least we can get out and about a little more easily. I have been happily staying in and crafting for days but am beginning to feel the need to get out and about again.

Now for today's card, the Edwin image is one I received from a friend and has been coloured with Promarkers. The backing paper from is from Kars and I've punched some of the snowflakes from it to make the baubles. I've kept it pretty simple as I don't like to embellish male cards too much. I'm entering it in the following challenges:

Corrosive Challenges - Red & white
Crafty Ho's - Any religious holiday
Wags n' Whiskers - Snowflakes
Sew Many Challenges - Snowflakes
Christmas Card Challenge - Christmas/monochrome option
Crafty Pad - Anything goes

Oh my gosh Jenni, that is A LOT of snow. Great excuse to stay inside and craft but I can see how after a few days, even that would get tiring. :) Great card. Such an adorable image. Thanks so much for playing along in the Catch the Bug challenge. I do hope you'll join us again next time.
