Friday Sketchers # 131

I am entering this card into Friday Sketchers # 131.  Actually I made four of these yesterday.  I liked the look of the sketch but I found it really difficult to cut triangles for some reason, so the cards took longer than I expected.  Going to try and get another four made today, although I have our Girls Brigade Craft Fair tonight so will see how that goes.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Patterned Papers - Echo Park
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Image - LOTV
Coloured with Distress Inks
Stickles (it was hubby who told me not to stickle all the tinsel, just add a few dabs here and there.  Not sure if I like that or not)
Sentiment - Personal Impressions
Gems  and Ribbon - Mei Flower
Martha Stewart Branch punch (can't really see these though)
Woodware Punch

Shannon and Sophie's schools are closed today again but Hollie's is open.  Although I didn't send her as the roads are still not great.  Seems to be a slight thaw on and the sun is out but for how long as the forecast is giving it bad again from Sunday.  Just the one more photograph to share today.  Hubby told me to get my camera when he was defrosting the car.  This is our front window.  I stood in the middle of a hailstone shower to take this.  Must be getting mad but I don't think I have ever seen so many icicles.

Anyway hope you are all keeping warm and doing lots of crafting. Take Care.

Love the colours of this card, makes me think of hot chocolate. Maybe that's because of all the wintry photos. Like the sketch, you've worked it well.
