A Gem of a Challenge # 10

I said last night I would be back today with another card and here I am.  I am really late with this card and hope it is still in time to enter the challenge. With not getting as much time as I would like to craft, I am missing a lot of challenges.

I am entering this card into A Gem of a Challenge # 10 -  Follow Sketch with the theme of a Christmas card but with no red or green.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Bazzill and Paper Mill
Patterned Paper - Echo Park and Doodlebug
Image - Pink Gem
Sentiment - Personal Impressions
Woodware Punch
Martha Stewart Icicle Punch (again, lol)

Also as promised in my post last night, I have a few more photographs to share with you.  If you missed those photos, scroll down if you have time. The first are on my journey yesterday to collect the girls from school early.  Fun in the snow last night and one of the icicle that was hanging from our front door this morning when it was -8.5.

This photograph is when you pass the White Rocks beach on the way into Portrush, a seaside town by the way. Not today though.

This photograph is normally a golf course on the main road to Porstewart.

I love watching the girls play in the snow.  although we have never got as much as this before.

Think my hubby felt safer in the back with Cleo, our cairn terrier, than he did out the front with all the snowballs that were flying about.

Isn't this the most beautiful icicle. Makes you cold looking at it though.

Anyway , sorry for the long post again, just thought I would share these photographs.  Back to crafting again, trying to make a set of four more cards today.  Take care and hope the weather isn't too bad where you are.

Hey Donna

Gorjuss card! Those papers so so suit that image hee! Adore your wee pictures!
Hee think much safer for your hubby out the back hee! the cards were loving it tho!
Hows the weather there today? Its so bad here!! The roads are just terrible and hubby never made it to work! Eventually we had to drive to hubby's stranded gran, as she needed milk and bread plus her medication sorted! She's 95 so was worth the trip to make sure she got her meds!
Hope you got your wee cards done and had a good wee day!
Hugs Melly xxx

Cute snow people but even they don't say snow like we've been having. There's no denying Monday was beautiful.
Your first photo would make a lovely Christmas card, especially so for someone who knows the area.
