Secret Santa!

This another scheduled post so hope blogger is doing his thing.
I meant to share this sooner so that my Secret Santa can see that I have started on the crochet flowers.............
I haven't got very far and it will probably take me until this Christmas to get them finished!
I am so envious of people who can crochet as it is such a brilliant craft......still getting to grips with the basics........just need more time.

Thanks Secret Santa I will keep you updated with the progress.
Hope you have a good day.

So the prediction was right and we have got a covering of snow.  It was snowing most of the afternoon yesterday......very fine like icing sugar powder and then carried on up until about midnight getting quite heavy at times.  Looks like it won't be hanging around though as I don't think we have any more forecast.  I guess some will be happy that we have it and others not so happy!

I did a bit of work and then some crafting yesterday and then more crafting :)  Hope you are all keeping snuggly and warm if you have the same weather as us.

I made another card using an image by Torico at Birdie Brown - Friends Puppy & Chick

The image is coloured with Copics and Promarkers and highlighted with Sakura glitter pens.
