Well, life happens...

Sorry I haven't been around much in the last week, to say it's been chaos is an understatement!

I made a couple of lovely cards last weekend, intending to post them Monday morning.....

Then the snow arrived....

I took my laptop to work and an overnight bag as I was on call and didn't think I'd be making it home..

I ended up staying at my In-Laws in Norwich, and I couldn't get onto their wi-fi.

Tuesday- got up early made it into work on time! Getting home was a different matter....

Shift finished at 3.30, got home after picking T up from the childminders at 8.30. Sudden dump of snow at lunchtime = panic rush home = grid lock in Norwich.

Some of my colleagues sat in their cars trying to get out of the NNUH (Norfolk and Norwich Hospital) for over 3 hours!!!

Weds school was closed, and I had to stay off work to look after T.

Back to normal (ish) Thursday, but the roads and pavements were lethal. Still got no crafting done as needed to catch up on the accounts for the VAT return.

Friday, more snow, schools closed therefore 6 year old to entertain and snow forecast for the whole weekend!

Here's the first card I made, for Adrian's Grandma.

Card - From stash (probably bought at the Range)
Stamp - Wistful Emma from Fred she said
Coloured with Pro markers
Die- Lin and Lene Designs
Core-dinations card embossed with Fiskars Blossoms texture plate
Ribbon - free with Crafts Beautiful magazine
Sentiment - from stash (prob another freebie!)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Make My Monday - Die Cuts or Punches
