Snow Family

Good Afternoon everyone, sorry I haven't been leaving comments over the last few days, but Emily has been home from Uni, so we have been out and about.  I drove to Lincoln on Friday to bring her back to Manchester, took 2 and half hours.  Had a break and a wander around Lincoln for a couple of hours, had a lovely lunch and then set off back home.  We got home around 5 and picked up a takeaway curry, yummy.   It was her friend Bryony's birthday yesterday so Bry and their other friend Heather were all back from Uni too and they all went out last night to celebrate.

We have just had a lovely dinner of roast chicken and veg and now she is getting all her stuff together to go back to Lincoln.  Its very quiet though, I hope she hasn't nodded off in her bedroom.  Chris is driving her so won't be back until about 10 o'clock.

I managed to get one card made this weekend, whilst Chris took Em food shopping.


Image - Sassy Cheryl coloured with Promarkers and Prismas

Sounds as if you've had quite a busy weekend. I love the way you have picked out the spotted paper colours to colour your snow family with - it's really effecitve. Likewise the black matting with that white sparkly snowflake make the whole design catch the eye.

Beautiful card Deb. Glad you had a lovely time with your daughter. Funny how when they come home from uni that they tend to take a parent food shopping....I wonder who's paying for that shop...lol. I was as bad! And in fact my younger brothers and sister still come home and have a good old root around my parents fridge before going home....and they arent students any more! Lee x
