Icy Breeze

Hello my lovely blogging buddies. Hope you are keeping well. 

My post title seems rather appropriate following the return of the bitterly cold wind and snowfall that we had here over the weekend, but it really is the name of the paper collection that I used for today's card.

 I must say a special thank you to Pauline who I blame entirely for steering me in the direction of this fab papercrafting pack!!




Before I go I have a snowy scene to share which I took on Sunday.  I said that after Hubby's accident a fortnight ago that I wouldn't ever wish for snow again but, I have to say, that it was lovely to enjoy a snowy walk together and I am sure it will be many years before we see more!!


There is very little left now.

See you soon xx

Some challenges

How very appropriate this card is, love that cute gnome.
Ours has gone too Sarah, what little we had. Most of it was just blown about and redeposited by that biting wind.:)

I'm not surprised you were drawn to this collection Sarah it is gorgeous, really love your card and layout.
All of our snow has gone again now too, I'm hoping that's the last we see this year, love the photo of your view but having worked as a groom in my youth I know how grim it is when you have to go and muck out in it Lol :)

Lovely card Sarah, and lovely pic of your snowy walk. It's been similar here, but thankfully it's all gone today. It was pretty for a day but I'm relieved that it's disappeared so quickly. xx

It looks so brrr cold in your photo, I'm happy not to have to walk in it(you're braver than I'd be!Glad if you got to enjoy a walk, all wrapped up and cozy, and no slips). Love this design on your card with the gorgeous papers. I like the different arrangement of the mats and the poinsettias are a bright pop of red in among all the icy blues. Pauline does indeed use some fab papers on her cards. TFS & Hugs. Stay warm.

Hi Sarah, a gorgeous card love the little Tomte you featured on the card, we have been doing our family history and discovered some Swedish roots, the home of some of these little elves. The papers are beautiful, love your layout too. Have a wonderful week... Megan

Pamellia Johnson said...

This is fabulous Sarah. Love the colour palette, a unique and gorgeous combo for a wintery card. The elf is so cute! It's so odd that you've had such cold and snowy weather, and we've had so snow for some time now. happy week to you :)

Jane Savage said...

This is a stunner, Sarah! Love that colour palette!
Tell the truth my dogs and I really love the snow too. Controversial I know!! :) xxx

That is a gorgeous and colorful paper pad, Sarah, I can see why you were enabled to get it! Your card should be bought by the company to use for advertising! It's awesome! Glad to hear hubby and you enjoyed a walk in that snowy wonderland!! Hugs, Darnell

It is appropriate for this weather Sarah and so is your card! It's so cute - I love it. Thanks for your comment on my post re Brandon's Birthday :) Yes time certainly does fly by - he'll be the same age as your lads in the blink of an eye! hugs - Michelle x

Kathie said...

Oh Sarah, I love your card and it's just so appropriate with the weather you're having in England. I can't believe the amount of snow that's come down this winter. I just hope that we don't follow suit in New Zealand in our winter. We were in England December, January 2016 and it was a quite a warm winter. I do love your card and the cute image and great design papers. Thanks so much for sharing your cards with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
