Snow Joke!

The card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters this week is "Patchwork" when I made my DT card I found myself with lots of squares that still needed using so to use them up I made this card. I just added some cheats stitching ,a few punched snowflakes and a stamped sentiment from the "Forever Friends set" I thought this was perfect seeing as the card looks just like a patchwork quilt.

I'm using this for the following challenges:-

Crafty Catz 60,Christmas,

Crafty Calendar 14,Winter snowflakes,
ABC Christmas Challenge,Y is for Yultide,
Think ink 34,Punches.

Thought I'd share a couple of photos that I took today from my back door. It's been snowing continuously all day,the finest snow I've ever seen,the camera doesn't even show that it was snowing at the time except that the images aren't sharp.

The snow on top of the wall now measures 12" deep,unfortunately the weather means that my Scrapbooking class on Wednesday was cancelled and the Crop on Saturday has also had to be postponed, this is such a shame as Karen and Julie put in so much time and effort organising the event,this is the first time in five years that it hasn't been able to go ahead. I'm going to have to spend the day making Christmas cards at home instead.
Keep warm and stay safe if you too have snow,
Thanks for stopping by,
