Good morning from Crafty Catz

 What a beautiful cold and sunny morning, our first frost here near Manchester. I was out for a walk at 7am and saw the sun rising in the frosty sky. Anyway, we are here with our new challenge at Crafty Catz and this week our host The talented Chris has chosen anything goes or our extra of 'Add three layers or more. This week is a fun challenge.

I love a lot of the older images and went with Christmas stack from  DC which is an old pad. Matted on to a maroon card. Image coloured with PM's, MS snowflake punch, ribbon, sentiment and glitter from stash. 

I had my great grand-daughter last Sunday for the first time! She arrived at 8am clutching halloween sprinkles having been told we would bake !! making cakes at 8.10am is not for the faint-hearted  (at 75) with a 3 year old. We also made apple crumble and gingerbread the afternoon we made? lol  5 cards with stickers. What a very looooong day until 5.50pm as they got stuck in traffic jams, still recovering (and finding sprinkles)
