These are my boys, and the lovely Dita many have been snowed in where we live no buses or taxes running and the gritters only just out today! the snow has been so bad but I would rather have the white stuff for five days than rain.

As you can see it's very picturesque here, lots of beautiful trees, as we live near lots of green farmland. All the children are enjoying the Snow sledges are sold out and every one is using them at every opportunity.

I would like to wish you the best time at this most wonderful time of year. Let us not forget why we celebrate Christmas.

It is because of our saviour Jesus Christ, Our Father in Heaven gave his only begotten son to us, so that he may clean us of our sin, that we may return to him one day. You are the beloved children of your father in Heaven he loves you, wants you to remember him. Repent of your sins and live a Christ like life so that we may return to him in the eternities.

I love my father in heaven and I am so grateful for his son Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect but I know he loves me as he loves all of you. Have a Blessed Christmas and safe and happy New Year love Dawn xx

Hubbys Christmas card

Another image gifted to me, I really like it too! think it must be penny black. but I thought this would make and idea card for my Hubby (love him so much.)
Close up. How beautiful? coloured with copics and used the applique for the snow, made another flower and put some gold stickles on there as well as inking all the edges with gold ink too love this colour combo works well I think.

Here is a close up of the flower and long chain and heart, I also love the sentiment by WOJ this is so apropreate for my hubby, if I wanted anything for Christmas more it's him swoon...... ;0) Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx

Tuesday Taggers & C.R.A.F.T. Ch

I was out with hubby all day yesterday (so tired) Christmas shopping and bought 99% of all the gifts I needed to get, that is a weight off my mind I can tell you. And I managed to make this last night and took lovely light photos this morning, (that makes a change lol) So I though I would use him for a challenge. The theme at Tuesday Taggers this week is 'Jolly Old St Nick' so here he is. I love this image but I don't have it my self, yet another lovey image that was sent to me, so how could I not Use him.
C.R.A.F.T. challenge are having a free for all, for some digi stamps pop along.
He is coloured with copics, here is his close up I used Glossy accents on his boots and buckle of his belt (should of taken it at another angle) But he is adorable and used the applique stuff to heat up for his fur trim I do love the effect alot!

I love this charm bought from Zoe Bunnys I get quite a few things from her (I have asked her to ban me until after Christmas but she keeps having new stock & sales darn it!) love the chain which asked her to get in and she did (nice, a shop that listens)I am sure they are selling like hot cakes and she is greatful for the suggestion (I hope lol.) well that's it for now I hope you like do have a nosey around. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx
