Good Afternoon!
MIL's carpet arrived yesterday!  Really good service seeing as it was only ordered last week!
Thought she might leave the new bed until after Christmas, but, no we're off to look for one on Friday! Going just before lunch so that means out for the rest of the day, I'm sure lunch will be mentioned after shopping..

Now these little cuties are new and they live at Fromtheheartstamps called Mittens Snowman
Coloured with Copics..Papers   from stash...Cuttlebug Embossing folder for the snow. Nellie Snellen square die. The tag has Texture paste on.   I've followed their weekly sketch. Lots of hand stitching here.  Got the design, but, sadly not the colours this week..I mean how can I colour a cute Snowman any other colour than white with an orange nose!.

Coloured with Copics..The false little red nose is covered with Glossy Accents...At least he's still standing so he must be able to breath..

There's a button reindeer in the corner as well...This card is going to our Nephew who I know will LOve the sentiment, it's his sense on humour..
