Sleepy snowy card

Good afternoon everyone, I hope everyone is well and virus free.
I have a cold boo hoo, but it is going away now..... I hope!
Just been doing my Christmas food shopping , it's crazy in the
 shops of course. I pity the poor people who have to work in
 this mad rush, esp. the supermarkets.... thinking of you Jackie :(
Anyway today is quite a sad one for me as this is my very last  DT 
card  to show you made for the lovely and talented Beccy over
 at 'Beccys' Place'.I am stepping down from her team as I will
be taking on more babysitting duties  for  my grandson two days
 a week at least from next year and won't have the time for making
 as many cards then. I have really enjoyed making my DT cards
and getting to know Beccy too. Thanks so much for letting me
 be part of your team :) ......Right onto my card, it was made  using
 the digi image 'Sleepy snowy', isn't he soooo cute! I made a
different fold card for a change and masked the 'snow', then
used Distress ink for the sky.A few hand drawn birds , a little
 daisy/sun? type die added to peek out behind snowy, a sentiment
 added and job done. I did the inside of the card to match the
 front too btw..........Hope you like my last card for Beccy.
ps. Been making and freezing baby food today for Christmas,
for my two grandson's. Also made some chocolate truffles too
and little bags to gift them in, pics soon.All 'Christmassed' up 
now, tree up,lights up outside, decorations up, pressies wrapped :)

So hard to get a decent photo of this card

Fabulous card Viv... love the design!

My OH works in M & S.... in their 'Ops Dept' - means in the back... unloading and working the stacks of food that are delivered. It's a Simply Food store... so the back room and freezer are small... He says it's HELL at the moment! They had 60 odd stacks delivered yesterday morning in all that rain! But he's off over the weekend..... thank goodness!

Love how you created your snowy hills and sky, Viv. Your snowman looks like I! Fab and fun Christmas card.

Thank you for your lovely Chrismas wishes, Viv.
Wishing you and your family a fabulous Christmas, which I'm sure will be extra exciting with two grand babies experiencing their first! Hope the New Year will be a heathy and happy one for you xx
