Mother's Day

Morning from snowy Aberdeenshire, so cold here, the house is freezing. We had the utility room  demolished last year and a new extension was started and then came to a halt so the cold is coming straight through the bare walls, brrrrrrrrrrrr! My washing machine is out in the carport, it's frozen too lol, so no washing being done. Had a really busy weekend with family so lying low once again till the batteries recharge, will have to put them on booster lol as i have to go to the hospital today to see my Mum, it's dinging on snow again here up in the hills but hopefully nearer the coast there will be nothing. Hate driving on snowy roads, so many inconsiderate drivers out there, flying past you if not a second can be lost!

A Mother's day card for my Mum. She loves Owls and so do I and when I saw this one I had to have her, just too cute. I bought her a wee adorable metal frog, a small posy of Spring flowers and put them in a pretty little gift bag. She has always loved frogs, has several sorts scattered round her house but was sad to see she didn't recognise the little fella, Least she still knows who I am and even knew hubby so that's a good thing.

 Pinkgems  Owl digi, coloured up with Pro/Flexmarkers, a real Brown Owl this one lol

Gorgeous papers from Nitwits, 'Grandmascottage' printed off on Linen card. The sentiment a super collection of relative names and everyday greetings all on one stamp set from Kanban Crafts.

Before I go, so forgetful, hello and welcome to my new followers, thank you for staying . Carolx

This owl is super cute and I love the spring colour theme you've used for your card. I love Nitwit papers but I must remember to print them on different textured card stock like you've done. Hope you have a safe journey today. Not too much snow fallen in this part of Aberdeenshire yet.

Oh so cold here as well Carol and there were we all thinking Spring was almost here.

At least your card has a lovely spring feel to it, very pretty.

Hope your roads aren't too bad. Not much snow here and soon disappeared in spite of some wee showers. Lucky really, Susan said it was really terrible in Aberdeen.
