Two Challenges for me today Creative Inspiration and Papertake Weekly

Afternoon All

Rather cold here today and I am sitting with the door open as Toby has gone for another adventure, he keeps coming back to check we are here but then if I try to close the door he is up at the windows trying to get out, he has now broken two of my blinds, one in the kitchen and the other in my craft room.

My brother is here for the weekend which is nice as I have not seen him for ages, this also means I am not crafting with Rachel today.  I have made a card and it is for Creative Inspiration Challenge 240 and the theme for this is white on white, and also for the Papertake Weekly Challenge Snow and Ice. I have made a stepper card and used crafters companion large Christmas tree and small Christmas tree die and also their snow village which I have cut down to fit the card.  Sentiment at back of the card is a spellbinders die not sure which one as I don't keep them in their packaging.  have added some flat back pearls and a bow from stash to give it some bling.  Sorry about the picture but the light here is not good today.

I have been commissioned to make a baby girl card for one of hubby's colleagues whose wife has just had a baby girl so will get on with that when Bill (big brov) has gone back to the hotel tonight as we live in a one bedroomed bungalow so no room at the inn. 

Sarah has gone to London for the weekend to stay with her best friend and will be back some time on Monday so no cooking vege meals for her this weekend which is nice. 

Well am off to do lunch and will sit in the living room where it is much warmer and blog hop on the ipad.  Am going to have to close this door its freezing if Toby who is not the brightest of cats wants to come in he is just going to have to use the cat flap the training on this is not going well lol. 

Love to all
