Moving Along With The Times

The challenge at Moving Along With The Times this week is an open challenge and for this I have used another of those exclusive to Craft At Home stamps
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and has now fully recovered or at least on the way to recovery and getting ready for New Year
Santa was very good to me and today I am having a PJ day- shoved my waterproofs on top of my jammies to take the dogs out and in less than two seconds was all ready for bed again when I came in- hoping to get a chance to play today but do have to do some housework..... might just shut my eyes to that today though
Am going to see what old movies are on the telly and lounge about and eat lots of chocolates
Have a good day whatever you are up to

The challenge this week over at Delicious Doodles is a sketch and this is my take on the sketch
I used Teri's Polar bears image and they are just gorgeous
Hope you can join in the challenge this week

A little sprinkling of snow yesterday but it has now froze over and is very icy- hope we don;t get more snow but the forecast says more on the way
Have a good Friday

Charisma Cardz

Happy Thursday everyone and this week its my turn to set the Charisma challenge and I chose
A Christmas Gift or Bag or Envelope
So what is that in my gift I hear you ask- its a little lip gloss
pop over and see the rest of the DT's wonderful creations and I look forward to visiting you all this week
Had a nightmare in the snow this week, car was abandoned for three days and yesterday I managed to get to mum and dads and had to walk to work and back home all week, pulled muscle in my leg which is very sore- have never saw snow like this in all my life and when I was driving my car it said it was minus 12, please go away snow, enough is enough
Hope to take some photos today to let you see what like it is, I have icicles hanging from my roof that would be right at home in the North pole- probably warmer there than it is here

Top Tip Tuesday

It is an Anything Goes challenge at Top Tip Tuesday this week and I would like to enter these two cards for that challenge. They are made using delicious papers and images from Teri at Delicious Doodles
Snowflake and Star papers and the Wolf and Artic fox image are what I used- I made a couple of cards for someone at work and when I took them in for them I got quite a few order for more so you have to excuse my bad bloggy skills of late as I have been busy busy busy trying to keep up with the orders
Today has two books in store for me of Iggle Piggle and if like me you didn't know who that was then please don't bother googling it- it's from a children's programme called in the Night Garden and it is all a bit strange- suppose if you are a young child it's wonderful but.....already did one book and when I took that in got orders for a couple more so I will be Iggle Piggled all day and half the week
No more fresh snow here for a couple of days but what is lying has now froze and the snow plow that woke me up at 6 am yesterday scooped up all my kerb stones and left them in a pile with lots of snow at the bottom of my drive... grrr. was not a happy bunny I can tell you...
Have a lovely Sunday

Still in Christmas card mode as I have three fairs coming up very close to each other and I want to make sure I have plenty cards, would hate to run out after the first one and all being so close to each other there is no time to make more but then I could be left with them all!!!
Wet and miserable here again today and its just about to get even more so as I have to do some housework now but then I will be free to play
