Snow Days/Nights

Hey guys. Wow - its been a loooong time since I last posted, for that I apologise, but these past few weeks have been H-E-C-T-I-C to say the very least. I have been snowed under, quite literally, with travel, uni work, house work, the lot. The weather here is gradually getting worse. It took me almost 50 minutes to travel a 10 minute journey yesterday. The roads are terrible, and the paths even worse. Although I'm glad to say that doesn't stop me going out, I'm just sure to drive with extra care and caution.

Yesterday was the day of my dissertation presentation. For starters, I didn't even know if I would be able to make it into uni, so I got up really early, half 6, (not that I got a whole load of sleep - due to worry) to ensure I gave myself plenty of time to travel. Good job I did, as the traffic on the roads was sooo slow, and the metros were delayed. Great. Aside from all of that, I think my presentation went ok, we should be finding out our marks sometime next week, so fingers crossed! :)

Here are a few pictures. Firstly I wanted to share with you the weather around my area.. dense snow fall. I {love} it.

This all started onnnn.. Wednesday night/Thursday morning, and its steadily getting deeper and deeper. Me and a few of my neighbours have been doing our best to keep the paths clear, but at intervals throughout the day and night more snowfall arrives and out efforts are wasted. But, I don't mind, I LOVE this weather. Its so peaceful and picturesque, and darn chilly, which is just my cup of tea.

As for cards..

These are two I made whenever I got a spare 5 minutes to sit down, hence the relative simplicity of them. They don't follow a layout, they are more like elements placed strategically on the cards, but I think they work well. :) They aren't my usual size, in fact they are 5 1/2" squares. I love the detailing on the buttons on the mitten card, adorable. As for the bauble card, I think that is more suitable for an older recipient, due to the traditional colours and the elegance of it. If you want a supply list, please do not hestitate to leave a comment or drop me an email at loulouwas@hotmail.com. Thank you.

Thats all for now, I'm sure I'll be back a little later with some pictures of my first ever commissioned card, as well as a 21st birthday card for another of my friends.

Hope you are all keeping warm and well. I hope the snow isn't as bad in other parts of the country, we are almost at a stand still!!
