Snow in March

Back again as promised with my second post this morning. I've used an old favourite Sugar Nellie stamp for my DT card at Winter Wonderland. We are trying something new this year and this week is the first of our occasional photo inspiration pictures. You'll have to head over to the challenge to find the photo but I can tell you that I have used the colours, boots and present as my inspiration.

I've distressed and inked the edges of the Marianne Designs papers and Core'dinations card and added some MS punched white glitter card snowflakes.

Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl 2nd entry using the sketch
ABC Christmas D is for Distressing
Papercrafting Journey Anything Goes
Simon Says Anything Goes

As some of you will have read I had a hospital visit yesterday afternoon  and saw a neurologist. I was so relieved when he said there is nothing wrong with me. It appears that the shaking incidents were caused by my sinus infection. Let's hope so anyway as the last 3 days I have felt absolutely fine. I have so much going on in March starting tomorrow with a craft fair and then a meal at friends tomorrow night so my Totally Gorjuss DT card is scheduled. I must go and do some housework now and then get busy sorting out for tomorrow and working on some more Crafter's Companion samples so busy day ahead.

Talking of Totally Gorjuss my lovely teamie Sarah has opened an online shop and currently has a DT call for a new blog challenge linked to the shop Craft All Day. Sarah has some lovely stuff in the shop so do hop over and take a look.
