It is cloudy and really windy here today .. even the little windmill in my backyard, which I brought with me from Amsterdam two weeks ago was turning round .. .. must still post some photos..
and it's getting cooler as well after it rained yesterday and the day before. Definitely not a day to go to the beach .. It looks like it's seen the last of us for this year, I even got some blankets out!
These are my kids this Summer enjoying themselves diving... not me .. I don't dive .. wish I did!!
Well, so, with this weather, we just stayed indoors.. hubby headed off to his garage, kids found something to do.. and me ... big smile .. in my craft room... where else yay :)
This is one of the cards that I did
Seeing this week's challenge at Lily Of The Valley, LET IT SNOW, and not having.. yet... one of their newest gorgeous Christmas stamps to play along, I remembered one of my oldie stamps from LOTV which I hadn't used for such a long time and which I had bought before I even started blogging! I thought it would still be perfect, even though an oldie and retired as well!
So after checking out some challenges, I found me some purple based penguin papers which were perfect for two challenges I found .. and of course the embossing snowflakes and Spellbinders die-cut snowflake for the Let It Snow.. Today I decided to keep the cuts attached to the big snowflake, not pop them off. I like how they looked on this shiny silvery card.

Thank you for looking today
Hope you are having a nice Sunday.
