Oh No More Snow

Morning Everyone, I some how think that many of you are experiencing the same weather that I am, SNOW, Im so glad that we went and did our big shop yesterday in Cardiff, which is about 45 miles away. Now you might be asking why go so far, well I live in a small town in the middle of the Forest of Dean and to get a good selection you have to travel quite away to find a decent supermarket, so we go once a month and do a big shop. So you can image Im so relieved we did ours yesterday.
Ive got a couple of pieces of brilliant news for you, the first one is Ive been invited to be a Guest Designer for "Stampin for the Weekend" Challenge Site, for the month of February, and I was so thrilled at being asked by such talented ladies to join their team that I said yes, thank you so much girls I hope that I will do you proud. And the second piece of news is that in the next few days I will be posting my samples for my dear friend Sarah Hallam of Peerless Designs, for her brand new Cd which will be previewed on Create and Craft on Sunday the 17th January at 12noon, so I sincerely hope that you will enjoy looking at them.
And the last thing is Im so glad that I bought a smile to many faces over my last posted card, its not often that I make cards like that, and some of you seem a bit nervous in making them, I should say that I also take care that when I do send them out that the person receiving it wont be upset at getting them.
Take care all of you, try not to go out with love and huge hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx

Morning Shirley

Understand the need to travel to shop only too well. We live in the middle of nowehere and apart from the local newsagents etc., we have to go to Cambridge or Peterborough, so it's three quarters of an hour min whichever way we go.

At least you are stocked up now for the 'big' snow if it comes. Keep warm and safe.

Hi Shirley.

WOW - So much snow. We only started to get some over night. Its been snowing off and on since about 10 am here and the flurries can not make up their mind - it comes in slow and pleasant and then it comes down in fast flurries and you can not see ANYTHING! Poppy has been watching the snow fall. If she wasnt feeling unwell I'd take her out for a play and make a little snowman but she is full of cold.

Good Job on your shop yesterday. One would say good thinking Batman!

I will pop an email over asap so you can get a head start on the Feb Challenges for SFTW as we have them down now.

Speak soon

Good morning dear Shirley
what I see on your photo is beautiful!! You have even more snow than we do here in Düssldorf and that's a good thing! haha
On the weekend will come back fresh snow and I think it's not even funny anymore, because in the big city that is not so great!
I wish you a wonderful day and send very many dear greetings
hugs and love Gisela

I have fed the birds four times today they have been hanging around all day they are better fed than James and me lol.
