Snow Hugs


Looking forward to a trip to the coast today. We are going to visit a bloggig friend, Carol, who has moved to Lowestoft. I also have an order to deliver to a customer there.  Hopefully the weather will be ok and we can go for a walk on the beach after a spot of lunch. So yesterday we did lots of backing up on the external hard drive and updating on the laptops. I was going to use the newer laptop as I said on Sunday but I don't much care for Windows 10 so I think for the time being I will stick to using the older laptop and Windows 7.

 I was looking through some digis and found this cute pre coloured one from The Paper Shelter which I have never used. I teamed it with Carta Bella all bundled up papers, down to the last few sheets of these. The sentiment is from Pink Gem. Trees are IO and Joy. I used a white Wink of Stella on the larger trees but the sparkle doesn't really show on the screen. I love the white effect this pen gives, so glad I bought it, looks like snow doesn't it. The other tree was cut from an old Anita's topper I found in my must use up stash. The stitched snowflakes are Memory Box.

What a lovely image Marianne - super card.
I have Windows 10 and am just starting to get used to it - I think I still prefer Windows 7 which is what we use at work.
Hope the weather is good for you - rather wet & grey down here by the Thames.
