A Christmas angel...

Hi all...I hope you are safe and cosy in this weather. I think the worst of it has passed but there is more snow forecast for next week. First I have to apologise to Sue cos I said I would take some photos of the park along the way a bit...sorry Sue but the snow is still too deep to wade through and now it has gone a bit icy but it's also starting to come off the trees but if it returns next week then I will try again. Let me see what dramas have I had this week...well my wellies burst so I had no other option that to put my hubby's old boots on...they were so cosy...pity I looked a bit like Crusty the clown but who cares at least my feet were dry but they have given me some blisters around my ankles as they were rubbing cos they were tooooo big!! Next drama and please do not laugh....Tuesday night I spotted a giant icicle hanging so I thought I would get was begging me so out I went with the shovel but as I am a small person I couldn't quite reach so I had a brainwave...I stood on a little snow hill and jumped up to attack it with the shovel....the kind of move you would make if you were shooting a basketball into a net... well what a shot,I hit it and it hit me back...right on the nose and it burst my nose and I have a bruise. I couldn't believe how fast it came down as I thought I would see it crack and then fall but no...I wasn't even standing directly under beware of giant icicles!!
Onto the card...I have used papers from Bo Bunny - Midnight Frost collection, I embossed a panel with the same patterned paper,the image is from Sugar Nellie and coloured with copics, I punched the snowflakes, the message is from a CC Designs sentiments set and I added some stickles glitter.

Hi Fi, hope your nose is feeling a bit better now and that your blisters heal quickly! Our snow is shrinking (hurray!), although I suspect we might need to shovel it back a bit further at the weekend in preparation for the next lot!
Your card looks stunning - the papers are beautiful - I love that rich blue - and, surprisingly, I even like the image (not normally a fan of Diane Duda). Take care, Susie x
