Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I love these vintage images they are what I think of as Traditional when Christmas meant snow and hand made. My image and papers were all free downloads.

Many thanks to everyone who leaves comments I really appreciate them thanks also to Jo and Lorraine who are my newest followers.

Busy day yesterday we went to Glasgow on the 7.11 from Huntly arriving there at 11.20, where we met my sister who lives near Edinburgh and my mother who lives in Renfrewshire. A few coffees later we met my son and his wife who had been in Florida for the past 3 weeks and then caught the 16.41 back home eventually arriving here at 9.45 pm. I feel wiped out today so am going to have a really lazy time. The weather is glorious so I'll sit outside for an hour or two.

Hi Meg, I know just how you feel, living here in Inverness feels like the other end of the world when travelling south. But you packed a lot in to your day and it sounds as if you had a lovely day.
Your card is gorgeous, love the image, embellishments and colours, enjoy your lazy day, Kate x

You had a long but funfilled family day! Well worth the effort and worth a lazy day now to make up!

Your card is gorgeous! Love, love, love that your papers and image were digital or printable. I need to learn more about this type of thing as DH would like to travel for a half a year. This way I could still craft! lol

Pretty image and I really like the way you trimmed the wreath to fit around the image.

Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
