Let it snow, no please don't!


Brrr we don't want any snow now that Spring is here. However James seems happy enough amongst the snowflakes. I am so pleased I am managing to fit in some Christmas cards amongst my other cards and of course I love making them. I paper pieced his hat and scarf with some lovely textured white card as a change from colouring them.

Wow, Marianne, this is gorgeous. I agree, James certainly does look happy in the snow.

I'm not sure if I have congratulated you yet on your LOTV DC appointment...but what the heck, even if I am repeating myself "CONGRATULATIONS"!

Hugs,
Jennifer. x

Vintage style plus James bear is a real winner - love his paper pieced hat and scarf!

I agree we don't want any of the white stuff IRL though - the sunshine we had in Gloucestershire this bank holiday weekend was a lovely surprise so I had to abandon crafting for gardening!

Big hugs, Kat xx
