It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas........

Good morning my crafty's been a while so I hope this finds you all well,
warm & looking forward to the festivities.... I still can't believe we're in December!
We woke yesterday to the first snow of the season & oh my, the garden looked so pretty!
I'm hoping for snow on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day too!
Lots to report wise things are so-so.......I'm just taking each day as it comes
........and most importantly........... I'm finally a Grandma to a beautiful baby boy! 
Sadly, I can't share pics but he is so adorable!
I have a topper to share today.......I've found these are a great way to use up lots of the
bits & pieces I have lying around, you know......all the bits I can't bear to throw out lol!
This one measures approx 5 inches square & is made with a very old decoupage snowman I 
found in my stash......isn't he cute? Some simple matting & layering with silver mirri card
& that's it......done!
Rightio, off for a catch up around your blogs, thanks for popping by......see you soon!
