Morning folks...well what a surprise when I opened the curtains this morning....WHITE!!! Yup the white stuff falling from the sky and a covering on the ground!! I think up here we miss out Autumn and just do a hop. skip and a jump to winter.....Brrrrrrrr! So the heating is on and today I will be sorting through the hats, gloves and scarves to make sure we can stay warm when we go out today.

Anyway...lets hope it is just a blip!

Right onto my card...I am quite excited about this is for a customer on Etsy. She asked me for a card that her boys could give their Grandpa for his 70th birthday and she wanted an image of  2 boys holding hands. I racked my brain and couldn't think of one from the many I already have and I hunted around the Internet to see if I could find a digi luck. So I e-mailed Mo Manning and kindly asked if she could draw me an image of 2 little boys holding hands and 24 hours later I had just the perfect image! So a HUGE thank you to you Mo. She is such a busy lady with book deadlines so I was thrilled to have this wonderful drawing.

So the card resembles one I have done before with another Mo Manning image 'Bye Bye Boy'...but the customer really liked the colours and design of that I just replicated it.

The papers are MME 'Lil Robots' collection, all machine stitched together. The sentiment is computer generated and the buttons are from my stash.

Well I am off to go warm up!

Thanks for your visit!

I loved the colours & papers & buttons on your first card & this is just as delightful. I especially love those little boys with their soft toys. This is so special.
No snow on Pen-y-Van here yet but I had to go & check when I realised you'd had snow further north.[
