And More Snow!!!

Yes it is snowing here again on the south east coast of the UK.  I couldn't believe it when I woke up to find yet another thick coating of snow on the ground and it has been snowing here all morning!!  Normally any snow that we get in our region of the UK tends to be more inland so I am truly amazed at how much we have had here.  I had great fun this morning drinking my cup of tea while watching our neighbours trying to dig a pathway out with their snow shovels!!  All their hard work paid off though and they were able to get out.

I am just pleased that I took advantage yesterday of some of the snow thawing to nip out and stock up on milk so luckily I don't have to go out today at all!!  I just hope that the postman makes it through as I am waiting on some packages so that I can get my prep done for my classes next Saturday at The Craft Barn.  There have been a few days that the postman hasn't risked it which I can understand but it is annoying when you are waiting for stuff!!

Anyway talking of classes here is one of the cards we made for the classes that I took at The Glitter Pot in early December. This class was based on using the Copic markers and how to obtain shading and blending using different colours.  The main image is from a Magenta cling stamp set, the background (on the green panel) is one of my favourite stamps by Penny Black called Scrolling Along and the leafy branch that you see (stamped with white StazOn onto acetate) is by Art Impressions.  Here's a close up of the main image too which has had Diamond glitter glue added to it.  All of these stamps can be bought at The Glitter Pot.

What a gorgeous card, Kay. The colouring is fantastic. It looks just like a painting.
Hope you are still enjoying the snow. Stay Warm.
