Snowmen




A little crafty time yesterday, it was such a miserable morning too wet to be outside so time for play. Image from Bugaboo, paper from an old My Craft Studio CD and sentiment stamps from Lili of the Valley.I used a Tonic die to create the holes then hand stitched them with glitter thread.

A trip out for some Christmas shopping today, I hope to have bought most of my gifts by next weekend as after that I am away until the end of November. I hate leaving my gift shopping until the last minute, especially since I buy so much stuff on-line now, but a browse round the shops is fun.
