Bad Crafter :-(

Well, I had great plans to craft to my heart's content over the summer holidays but I have to say I haven't really been in the mood so I haven't really done any. What I have done is lots of reading and I've loved it. I have also spent loads of time out and about with my boys as the weather has been pretty reasonable. We are off to beautiful North Wales this morning for 5 days. My boys are very excited. We hope to have lots of fun on the beach and see a couple of castles, visit an old mine and maybe a trip to Anglesey if time allows.

For now I would like to show you a card I made on Saturday (mojo returned for a couple of hours!). I saw this gorgeous image recently on Facebook and absolutely fell in love with it. I bought some tiny corked glass bottles from ebay a few weeks ago and have used my first one on this card, I added sugar to the bottle and it is supposed to resemble snow. I also added some cute jingle bells. What do you think...?

 Close up of the little bottle...
 Jingle bells, jingle bells...
