"Very simple using a few Snippets"

Hello and welcome to this little corner of Blogland.  
I do hope you are managing to stay dry and are not effected by those horrible rain storms once again.   
We have had lots of rain, there is "snow" on the hills to the front and the back of us.  
After the cleaning was done here at the Ranch we decided to go shopping.  If the snow comes down to this level we could get snowed in.  This is the time we get our winter snow, we have a 4x4 but the snow can beat that as well.  We bought in lots, Oh! My! Goodness! it took me absolutely ages to get it all sorted out and stacked away.  Should have enough to keep us going for quite a while whether the snows come or not.
Poor wee Thomas was all excited to be going on his first Ski with the school today....................Snow Gates closed late last night/early this morning north of Blairgowrie so no access to the slopes.   Hopefully they will get away tomorrow.
Thank you for taking time to come visit me I hope it has been worth while.

No need to tell you that this card is made using all snippets of pink and white card stock
An Air Dry Clay heart decorated with a few pearls and that`s it
Card approx 5 x 5 

I only bought a small packet of Martha Stewart Clay, it is all finished.  I have had great fun, it is so therapeutic.  Pressed the button on an order for more I just hope it does not take toooooo!! long to arrive.

I am popping this over to
For their challenge

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
Till next time

    Blairgowrie. . . There's a blast from the past for me. My dear ol' late Dad used to play golf there. The memory made me smile thanks.

    Hope you don't get too much snow up there, but at least you have plenty to eat now after your big shop LOL

    Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my Bloggie, I'll bet your wrist warmers work just as well as mine, even if they are just plain blue ha ha ! I do love how the clever yarn I used worked out, such a pretty pattern and my wrist warmers do a great job.
