Snowglobe number 2

Hello...Hope you all had a lovely weekend...I had a friend stay the last few days which was nice and had a good old catch up and a few G&Ts...
and boy did I need a few.....After looking at houses three weeks ago I found one and put in a offer (the asking price) phone the solicitor and booked and pay the surveyor.....
Last Saturday morning I get a phone call from the estate agent to say the vendor has taken a higher offer of fifteen thousand.....I was not a happy bunny....so off down to Southend I went Sunday afternoon to look at more houses....

Enough of moving or not! and on my card for today.....Snowglobe is Tim holtz number 2....looks like he will be bring one out each year....This one is rounder than last years and has more little dies but are numbered so you know which ones go together....thank goodness! Navy card Papermill....papers LOTV....rest from the bit box....sentiment Tonic....

Thank you for your comments....Joolsx

Christmas Candles....

Hello...Hope you all had a lovely weekend....I stayed
in as here in Suffolk we have a lot of fireworks displays and one of my poor puddy cats (Bailey) hates all the bangs...I just wish it would not go on for days....

Today's card is a quick one....I start with 5x7 tent card....white linen card Papermill....which I embossed the background but first cut the Gothic Arch  Poppy Stamps out....I done the window twice....I then cut out the candles Memory Box...once the silver and again  in white card....I cut just the bottom part out again the make them stand out...
