We don't get good snow very often, the clouds usually tip it on the hills surrounding Manchester before they get to us. But we got some today :)
We had a bit of snow yesterday but it had gone by the evening, washed away by Manchester rain. But we woke up to that special silence snow brings, and the excited voices of the little ones next door, which hinted that it had snowed again. I have to say though, it was a lovely surprise to see how white it was out there.
[unfortunately we don't live in that yummy b/w house but the house in the middle above with the beech tree in the garden - still a gorgeous house though!]
Gyp loves catching snowballs (and eating them) but was rather surprised to discover that it was a bit slippy out there. Frozen rain from last night meant treacherous road and pavement conditions. But we were ok building a snowman!
And I made it out for lunch with some girlfriends from school. Look at these snowmen in a shop window we went past,...how fab are those hats!!
With all our December birthdays over [my youngest nephew was one yesterday :)], I settled down to getting a bit further with my Christmas cards.
I partially cuttlebugged the white card with the snowflake EF, and mounted the pieces I'd made at Paddy's last week on her batch card workshop. I loved making these, Paddy comes up with some amazing techniques :)
I'm adding stitching to mine so it's the sewing machine out tomorrow. Which is good, as I've got some Christmas presents to make!!
