3 of a kind~

Hi All~

What on earth is going on with this weather? When I got up this morning I thought someone had transported me to Russia!! Brrrrrr.

I have made a batch of cards today, Christmas of course, made with this lovely vintage Father Christmas image..(unfortunately I have no idea the make of stamp, I have had him sometime now).

I have used my cuttlebug to emboss the white matted layers (love this technique) I like the pure white with the black mirri board think it's very clean and simple...Perfect when you want to make lots of card quickly. These three cards took me 40 minutes from start to finish.
In between crafting I am watching my son build the most fantastic snowman in the garden, his college is closed (he's a happy bunny!) and he's decided he does not need to study...he needs to build a snowman instead....don't blame him either!!
Thought you might like to see the photo he took, good isn't it?
