A Really bitter day again !!

Well, was it a 'beast' where you live lol.... we had bits of snow but biting cold winds...Feel so sorry for those snowed in.
Our challenge 406 at Crafty Catz this week is chosen by our teamie Nick  and it is anything goes with a twist of 'Baby cards' we are sponsored by


I have used old DC papers, a Penny Black image coloured with PM's, nesties circle die, Ribbons, butterfly, sentiment and pearls from stash.


I had better move around a bit now to keep warm even though I have my thermal vest and thick cardigan on. lol....Have you seen the speed some of the inconsiderate drivers have been doing ??? No wonder there have been so many crashes, they are not accidents as they happen unexpectedly....idiots have caused these to happen, I saw one of a 16 car pile up on the Motorway,  taken by road cameras, it was unbelievable.... the conditions and speed !!! so sorry for the emergency services who have to pick up the pieces.
Lunch out for a friends birthday today, I will forego the glass of wine and take the car, this wind is bitter again.

Take care out there, Hugs Tilly x
