Papertake Weekly - Cold and Frosty Morning

Hi girls. What a shock I got yesterday morning when I awoke - there was not a drop of snow left to be seen. The heavy overnight rain had finished it off. I hope that is it for good.
I am so pleased that you have been able to find time to pop in on me today. I hope you find something to make your visit worthwhile. Is it just me or has blogland been very slow the last few days? There doesn't seem to be as much traffic as usual. Anyway I'll just plod on and hope things pick up.
I made this card for the Papertake Weekly challenge where the theme was "Cold and Frosty Morning". I have inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Snowman" and coloured it with my Copics. The design paper is My Mind's Eye "O Christmas Tree" which has glittered stripes and Bazzil as a mount. The punched border is made with a Fiskars punch and the ribbon and glitter are from my stash of goodies.
I enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it. If you have any helpful hints or observations to make please don't be shy and leave a comment to let me know what you think. I so love reading what you have to say.
I hope as you start a new week that everything goes well for you and that you enjoy your crafting and blogging and stay safe and healthy.

An Award from Antwerp

I have been given this award by my blogging friend Martina over at Martina's Kaartjes. Thank you so much Martina. She has a fabulous blog so why not nip over and visit her. I was given this award a few weeks ago and I have already given the required facts about myself and passed it on so I won't do it again so soon after but if you are a follower and want to take it please do so. You will have to give 3 facts about yourself and pass it on to 5 other bloggers.
