Surprise!


Well we never got any snow yesterday apart from a few flakes. It just poured with rain and was very dark with a bit of sleet thrown in too. Thankfully it was a mainly dry evening. We have a nice easy challenge for the LOTV Facebook challenge this month, anything LOTV goes. I used one of the new simply prints for my inspiration card. These coloured toppers are great for quicker cards. The papers are Basic Grey and Tilda. I am trying to use up bits and pieces of older pads.  The lace is from Crafty Ribbons, flowers from he Hobby House, cotton ribbon and charm from my stash and I used a MFT stitched scalloped border die.

Challenges
As you like it favourite animal (mine has always been bears. I have taken several to charity shops over the years but still have several around the house. My favourite bear is Winnie the Pooh, just love those stories.)

I have been very busy sorting out my stash as I transferred it to the new boxes in my new storage unit. I will be sharing pics of my updated craft room tomorrow so do stop by.

He's a real cutie and love the flowers and papers. I had a clear out of my craft stuff on Saturday. I now have a big bag full of stuff I will never use. So the Charity that I support, has a craft room for the residents to use, so I will take it there. Hugs, Carol S.xx
