Taking A Rest

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all enjoying the weekend, weather isn't too brilliant today so I have spent some time crafting. I would also like to say hello to my new followers, thank you for following me. Sorry I haven't been around much this week, but it has been really busy at work, and I have spent some time  getting the girls ready to go back to school.  I was very naughty, I couldn't resist - I bought a couple of the new christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley. oops (a paper pad fell into my basket as well) well it was free postage. I have made today's card using one of my new stamps and paper, I have used frosted lace stickles for the snow because I like the icy texture that it gives. I have also followed the sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge.
