Crafty Catz Challenge #529- Optional Theme- Baby, It's Cold Outside

 Good morning, hope you're all keeping well and staying safe- only another 5 days now and we'll be out of the second Lockdown and into...oh yeah....level 3 restrictions, which is basically Lockdown with open shops...exactly as I expected! At least the weather has been fairly kind to us recently and we've been able to enjoy our daily walks without getting soaked, which is something to be grateful for. My granddaughter is now able to come out of isolation after having the virus and can return to school next week which is an even bigger thing to be grateful for! Her parents and sister are still testing negative so all good there, all in all things could definitely be a whole lot worse so I'm not complaining.

Anyway, I'll get back to the card, this week at Crafty Catz our lovely Jac (our own little NHS hero) is the host- her chosen theme is ' Baby it's cold outside'- optional as always.

Our sponsor this week is Morgan's Artworld

so some gorgeous images for the DT to play with. 
I used the beautiful Fantasy Fae 9 digistamp.
As usual I coloured  her up with my trusty Copics, -and  a clear sparkle pen. I fussy cut her and placed her inside the glittery silver frame, the snowy sky background paper is a freebie DP from a magazine. I added a die cut snowflake swirl and stamped sentiment embossed in silver. 
There's plenty more to see over at Crafty Catz, my lovely team mates have as always produced some fantastic creations for you to enjoy.
WE hope you choose to play along this week- remember the theme is optional!
Thanks for visiting

Hi chris,
so glad all is well with your family.
Mine are having a few issues due to people they have come in contact with so I have no bubble person at the mo.
Love your wonderful card and that image and background are stunning.
Love the glitter frame and the gorgeous corner die.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Great card with your awesome coloring. So sorry that your granddaughter got the virus. In the part of the State where I live, we are told that if we get caught having someone over at house that doesn't live with us that it is a $1000 fine. So it's just me and my cat.

Really happy to read your family are doing fine. The lockdown rules are so silly, heaven help us in January. Stay safe.xx

Wow she is definitely an icy queen, this card is beautiful Chris. So glad to hear your Granddaughter has recovered and is heading back to school soon. I don't think anything will improve until we all get the jab for this horrible covid! We are just in our first week of another lock down but you would never know as nothing seems to have changed! Stay safe mrs. Where would we be without our walks!
