Spring, Sun, Snow and Moving House!!

Did someone say that Spring is on the way!!!
I think it lost it's way, or must have been using a Sat Nav!!!!

Of course it could also be Climate Warming!!
If so, what is -5 C as it was today?!!
With the wind chill factor it was -9C!!!

Thank goodness for central heating.

Last November, I had a package drop through my letter box.
It contained some rubber stamps, including this one.
Also a paper pad and some gorgeous embellishments.

It was from one of my amazing, extremely kind ladies
that follows my blog.
It came all the way from Miami, Florida,
from the lovely Kelly. 

I was blown away by her generosity.
So I sent her one of my Christmas Angels,
as a thank you.

 I stamped it onto Water Colour card
and for a change, I coloured it with 
Derwent Inktense Pencils.

It was really easy to colour and
love the detail in the picture.

These pictures are for my lovely followers, who are
lucky enough to live in warmer climates!

It's called SNOW!! Hee Heeee!!

Check out the big black cloud, waiting to drop more on us!

This is our back door, which we use all the time,
as it's nearer the garage than the front door.

Taken from the dining room on Tuesday.
Again, a big black cloud on it's way!

So, to all of us surrounded by the white stuff.
Stay at home and stay safe and keep warm.
Great excuse for doing more crafting!

Thanks for popping in and leaving your lovely messages.

Thank you to everyone, for my fab messages on my last post.

Big hugs.

Lovely cheerful card Carol, cute image beautifully coloured.
What a surprise you must have had when the goodies arrived from Florida, how lovely
We have pretty much the same view with no sign of it clearing, I've been very happy to not have to go to work and have had a couple of nice walks with Manny - it's proper snow and not the wet slushy stuff we usually get.

Lovely card Carol. Oh I just wish for a back yard like that in your pics, never ever experienced it and I guess Rick is missing 'home' and the warm humid days...
For us down under unless we travel to New Zealand to the South Island, which we did just before Christmas, snow to me is just a dream.
We did experience the Glacier and snow but only for 10 days and there was nothing at all compared to this unless you went up high in the hellicopter as we did..

Sending warm hugs.xx

Lovely card Carol, and very pretty pics. We have similar down here in Devon, unprecedented powdery stuff too, but today it's turned to the hard crusty crunchy stuff we usually get, quite deep and I'm glad we can stay inside and snuggle the kitties to stay warm. Stay safe sweetie. xx

Hi Carol

A lovely new home card - great pencil work!!

Your snow pictures look lovely .. .. ours doesn't look so beautiful. We had swirling blizzard winds and it has sent our snow into drifts all over the place.

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Oh my goodness, that's me! Oh Carol! I just stopped by to see your card and am glad I scrolled back a bit :) How charming! I see YES you did get snow! :) And lots of it - how beautiful it is, I'm one of those crazy snow loving people!
Your card is just lovely - your coloring work with the pencils is super!
