Some cards ...

The postman finally managed to get through the snow in our street yesterday and brought me my beautiful Papertrey goodies. I love opening up the parcel and laying everything out on my desk to stroke. I even used my lovely new goodies today to make some notecards. They're plain and simple but I think they turned out okay. The photographs aren't so good as I had to take them indoors because of the wind - oh did I tell you? As well as all the snow now we've got winds too :lol:





The stamps were really sweet so I made my cards smaller than usual (I got 4 from an A4 sheet of cardstock), coloured with Promarkers and I used my Stampin Up scalloped circle punch and some leftovers of coloured cardstock
We had a beautiful blue sky this morning when I woke up but have you seen how cold it was. My goodness this winter has just been the worst and it's kind of only just begun, there is another few months to go before we get into Spring! Anyway, as I was sat in the kitchen making cards this morning I could hear a commotion in the street outside. A snowplough! Thankyou Mr Snowplough Driver :) He ploughed down to the bottom of the culdesac which is where we live and then back up to the top of the hill and after him came a little man in a diddy little digger who scooped up the piles of snow and dropped them out of the way on the grass. Yay! so we can get our cars out and are no longer snowed in :)

Simply gorgeous, Andrea. I have the set too. I can hardly wait to receive my first Copics so I can color the images like you did.

Hi Andrea, I wanted to email you but couldn't find an addy so will ask here lol, how much does it work out if you order stuff from Papertrey ie the postage to the UK etc? Is it reasonable do you think?
