CraftyCatz challenge #300.....Winter time....



Good morning,we have a new challenge for you over at CraftyCatz
This week is the turn of my very good friend AuntySue, she would like to see a WINTER THEME..
I think most of us will see this as a chance to make a few Christmas cards, I think I am almost done with mine, don't send out as many these days, the post and all that....anyway...we have a great sponsor for you...
Creative Classroom
all details on the challenge blog...
Here is my card, very plain I suppose, just a leaf die and lots of glitter, glamour dust, a firm favourite for me, some bakers twine and wild orchid stems....done...
 Not much else I can say really....hope you like...
The DT have done an amazing job, please pop over and see....
********************
Now, on a more personal note, those who read about my new Grandson, born last Thursday, well after a few hours he was taken to the SCBU where he still remains, he has had a very turbulent week, as have we who love him...it seems it could be a while before he comes home, poor mum had to go home yesterday and she is very distressed, although she is very sensible and knows he is in the best place for now....I will keep you all posted........I also want  to thank my lovely teamies,your all such a good bunch, it's like an extended family........and my wonderful friend AuntySue for her concern, for Jacob, the family and myself, she is the best kind of friend anyone would be blessed to have, I am always grateful , I mean we all have our own problems don't we....
 Here is my sweet little lamb....
**************************************
Thanks so much for your visit, if you haven't already been to a bonfire then I am sure Saturday night will bring out the big boys, lots around I know of....be careful and enjoy.....obviously I won't be out, the air would kill me, but I will watch out to see if I can see anything in the distance....
Have a lovely week-end....hugs for now...
Janette.xx
