I hope everyone is OK and  well. .I've not been around much lately we had a lovely week in Spain staying with some friends who live there the weather was great.Then I had the family for a long weekend so its been a busy time I seem as if that's been my year. Never mind the excuses I hope to get to catch up very soon. 
I went to the Great North Create Show at Harrogate on Saturday with some craft group friends it was a bit disappointing not that many stalls and not that busy its not the show it used to be. I think I might need to get to one of the bigger shows elsewhere in the country .I even came home with money left in my purse not like me !!
Have a great week everyone and I hope you can take a look at the challenge. Love and  hugs Carole x

  6. Love the design of the icy scene. Sad that these shows are going down hill. I used to go to Ally Pally twice a year and they had around 60 stalls and now they have about half that. It could be that people can get most things online now. I still like to see and touch things. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  7. Dear Carole
    It's a very stylish and beautiful winter image you've made on your Christmas card. Just wow! Hugs and love

  8. Gorgeous elegant snowy card, lovely embellies. Some of the shows aren't as good nowadays especially the bigger ones. I went to Sincerely Yours, about 20 stands but sepnt plenty. All depends who is there, I always check the exhibitors. Doncaster is a good one in July x

  9. Gorgeous card, love the frosted snowflakes :)
    Hugs Kaz xx
