Oh my goodness !!! what a day we have had here in the West of Scotland. everything has come to a standstill
The roads are gridlocked, the airports are closed, the trains and buses are no longer running and no one can even venture outside their front door. We have had the heaviest snowfall that I've ever seen here and believe me I've lived a long time.!!!! I cannot believe how bad it is. There is no public transport so people who made it to work this morning are stranded as the snow started about 10.00am and it hasn't stopped since. Visibility is down to near zero. Thousands of people are stranded in cars and even some schoolchildren are having to spend the night in their schools because they couldn't get transport to take them home.
I was supposed to go grocery shopping today as we are down to the bare minimum, so it's black tea and coffee, no bread, no sugar and the few things I keep for emergencies in the freezer have gone !!!!! we are now using the few items such as dry pasta, tinned tomatoes, soup, beans etc that we have in the cupboard.
But at least we are at home and have heat and a bed to sleep in!!!!!!!
Anyway enough of my meanderings, here's a little card I've made for a few challenges. I followed the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl which has the option of snowflakes and I've used the adorable Winter Wonderland image. Coloured her with TH distress inks, used some wonderful papers from dovecraft's Jolly Holly Christmas. My full recipe for the card is below this post.
I do hope that you are all in a safe place if you're having this dreadful weather. I'll pop back later after I concoct something up for dinner. In the mean time have a wonderful evening.
