It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..

It snowed here yesterday. This is a big thing where we live - we had no snow last year as it kept missing us - so I was super excited. It was mixed with a lot of rain so didn't actually do anything apart from make the grass white but I was out there with my camera.
Now don't all laugh at once ......................

I was asked to make a couple of birthday cards with the super cute fairies that I discovered a few years ago on a kids craft CDrom so that's what I spent an evening through the week doing. Now that the weather has turned dark and damp, I am struggling to blog regularly as I need to wait for a bright day to take the photographs. Anyway, all along the same design, I just used different papers (Shabby Princess and Pink Petticoat)

I realised that I hadn't taken a picture of the advent calendar that I made out of matchboxes and chipboard. I found the instructions on the Bad Girls forum and I think the papers are by My Minds Eye.
