Back again :0)

Hi Folks, me again!

Hope all is good with you  and your weather isn't playing up too much. It's all thaw here today.......................... this was last Sunday,










and this below is today,.................. poor 'ol Mrs Snowy LOL




We had so much fun in the snow with family it was such a brilliant day, so wonderful especially after having a few worries:0)
Things are looking up I'm very happy to say:0)









  I have made a card for LIM where the challenge this week is a sketch, by the talented Jen, such a simple design with lots of scope!


Here is my attempt,

and one with a sentiment although I'm not sure it really needs one

                                                                                                                                                
Stamps by Tim Holtz, Classics, #2 and a sheet from Sunday International, Art by Michaelangelo. The layer behind was stamped with the columns and then the card was torn and popped up in front leaving the images below. There is gold rub on paint on the torn edges of the design but it doesn't really show on these photos.
Have a great week my friends, it's good to be back with you all again, hugs Gay xx

Hi Gay
When I saw you pop up in my little box it suddenly dawned on me that I hadn't seen you for such a long time, part of that is my fault being absent myself before Xmas. Anyway, it's lovely to see you again and I'm sorry things have been a bit difficult. I hope the year improves for you.
The snow thawed very quickly here too and we have even less of a snowman left in the garden. They do look sad don't they.
Love your card as always.
Hope you've enjoyed the weekend.
hugs Lisax

Hi Gay! Long time no see! I was MIA for a while too...so glad you're back...hope all is well with you. We don't get snow here in Florida...well, we get a dusting occasionally which doesn't usually even stick to the ground! I love the look of your card with the torn edges over the columns...I've done something similar before and it always turns out well...as did this. As for the sentiment...I think my favorite is the card without the sentiment

Your poor Snowman - looks so sad! Nice to see the green though.

Your card is really elegant - love the colouring! Think I prefer it without the sentiment.
