You're SEW special!

Morning friends, hope you're all well & warm!
We're knee deep in snow here and  it's snowing as I'm typing so
 don't think I'll be stepping foot outside today. Any excuse to to
 stay inside and craft, eh? It looks so pretty outside but it's oh, so
 cold! I think Mr Mojo has had enough of the cold too cos he 
seems to have disappeared.....he's probably off sunning 
himself somewhere! So for today I'm sharing a "just because"
card to go in my box. It started out as a CAS card but
I just can't get the hang of 'em! Still, at least it's made with
mostly scrap box bits! Hehe, I put myself on a stash ban........no
buying until April 1st......and so far I'm doing good! I am able
to buy the basics i.e. glue, plain card & card blanks but that's
all  :(  I really do need to use up some stash! So that's it 
for today.....jobs done. tea sorted now I can go look for
Mr Mojo.......oh, and it's American Idol this aft.....can't
wait though I'll reserve judgement until I've seen the new judges!
Thanks for looking today...stay safe & warm!
Hugs Jo x

  21. Hi Jo, another fabulous card! Love the image and b/w colour scheme.

    I'm rather disapointed with the snow - we had some on Monday which hasn't really gone yet, but we've not had any further real snow since! Schools been open, roads aren't too bad, humph I wanted a huge wad of the stuff but nope!

    Hope you enjoy your snow.
