Spot the beach?  Nope? 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!
Had fun today sledging, making snow angels, snowball fighting etc...  Let the child within!!
Brrr! 
But good fun....tomorrow as school is out again me thinks I shall mostly be making a snowman!
Mind you it ain't helping in my preparations for Christmas, lol.

Yesterday we were supposed to have our Christmas crop but due to the weather conditions and the fact that it would have been difficult to travel it was cancelled....to be re-booked after Christmas.
A couple of the girls still managed to make it around to my home instead and we tried to make a good dent on all the home bakes whilst doing a wee bit of crafting. 
I thought as I recently bought some Lili of the Valley stamps that I would have a go at their weekly challenge here.
So this is my attempt.


I saw this stamp and immediately thought of my eldest so had to send him this card to let him know I am thinking of him after a difficult week at school.  The stamp is coloured to his school rugby strip with copics oh and of course I had to add the mud! 
Paper:  American craft "Junior" range.
Punches from SU and Spellbinders
Stamps IOTV and Hero art.
Distress ink:  Tea dye, vintage photo and faded jeans.
