It's snow again!

Good evening, I've had a busy, but lovely weekend! Two small granddaughters arrived  yesterday afternoon, after a visit to the library and the park we took them out to dinner as it's Ruby's birthday on Tuesday, I never fail to be amazed at how much those girlies can eat and there's not an ounce of fat on either of them! After our meal we settled down to watch Strictly...Ruby couldn't keep her eyes open, but Olivia is 'never tired' :) Still they didn't wake me until nearly 8 am so I can't complain. They were collected at lunch time to go to the farm to pick pumpkins to carve for lanterns, so I had some time for a bit of relaxing crafting, there's certainly nothing relaxing about trying to make anything when they're around....they can't wait to get their hands on my stash!!!
Anyhow I had time to make this little card for this week's Less is More challenge - Little creatures.
It really is a quick and simple card, I stamped and masked the mouse, stamped and embossed the letters and hand wrote 'let it'. The mouse is coloured with polychromos, the snowflake is die cut with one tiny gem in the middle. I managed not to add anything else but it was hard.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Oh My! I'm loving your little meece..What a FABulous CAS card Chris.
    He looks awesome and I LOve your sentiment and star..
    You sound to have had a lovely weekend..It's so good to have them stop and nice to see them go lol.
    Had to laugh at you keeping an eye on your stash. Freya keeps a drawer full of her 'things' most images I always make two so there's one waiting for her when she arrives.

  2. Gorgeous card Chris and love the little meece trying to catch the snowflake..too cute.
    You do have to watch those little fingers as they love getting in and getting messy..I have a drawer too with pencils and older pens with images for the kids but only one ever really gets it all out..

    Luv CHRISSYxx

  3. This is a super cute image and a gorgeous card, looks good on the kraft card, love the lettering, is he begging the snowflake or worshiping it lol.
