A little bit of sunshine through the snow!

Morning from a v.white West Coast of Scotland!

I dunno what everybody is moaning about - I love the stuff, all white and fluffy and irresistable. Dontcha just love putting your footprints in the newly fallen stuff??

Here's the 6 foot snowman outside my door, built by my eldest Robert (on the left) and the two kids from down the street. The outside cupboards were raided for arms and hence the two badminton rackets sticking out of the snowman. They had to get Billy (my hubby) to lift the body and head onto him as it was so heavy. Ross (3) isn't in the photo as he was far to busy in the snow to be bothered with all that photo-taking malarky.

Over at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog this week they are using the colourwheel, and you have to choose the colour opposite your favourite colour to make a card! I looovveee BLUE (don't see the point in other colours - well other than to show off how nice blue is LOL). Therefore, I had to use ORANGE to make my card!! Not a colour I use very often I must admit, but I don't hate it. I did struggle a bit looking for orange stash, but then came across a Docrafts Goodiebag from a while ago that had the Capsule Collection inside - and it was all orangey and lemony - just perfect!

Here's my card with the ever so adorable Jack on it!

Doesn't look like he'll be so adored when the rightful owner of those flowers finds out though LOL.  The ribbon, brads and papers are all from the Capsule Collection.

Jack (who you can buy here - and for December get another stamp half price!) was coloured with my Promarkers and I added some ickle flowers I found in my stash to the image with little bits of bling in the middle of them to make it a wee bit more 3-D. I think they work really well.

The sentiment is from a free stamp set with the Docrafts magazine this month, and just suits this image to a T. I also added some more of the ickle flowers to balance things up a bit.

I'm quite chuffed with my orange card, and you never know I may use it more in the future.
