Hellish Week and Frosty the Snowman...

Oh what a week last week was!!! Thomas got his finger trapped in the hinge side of a door when it shut and has a horrible bruised fingernail. Jack dropped something on his foot and badly bruised one of his big toes. To top the week off, the day after my birthday, we went out for afternoon tea and ice skating and Jack fell on the ice and fractured his left elbow :-( Awful evening but we received such fab treatment at our local hospital. He now needs to see an orthopedic (sp?) doctor and we will find out if they want to plaster his arm or leave it in the sling it is currently in. Jack can't do any sport for at least 6 weeks - eeekkk! So no rugby, tennis, Taekwon-do or swimming or any physical activity at school. He's one grumpy boy :-(

Anyway, I completely forgot to draw a winner for my birthday candy so just done it and the winner is... Number 1, K. Congratulations K :-) Will get the calendar off to you as soon as I can x

I know I am waaaaayyyyyy behind with blog commenting. These last couple of week's have been mad busy. I will try and catch up the best I can, I have really missed seeing your gorgeous projects.

This is a card I made a couple of weeks ago. I think the card looks slightly odd in the photo as it looks like I have randomly added gems whereas they are embellishing the embossed background and only placed in the centre of snowflakes and as the dot for the i in Winter. Now I see the photo I'm not sure it works...?

 A close up of the embossed background...
