Oh the weather outside is frightful....

......but making cards is quite delightful! and there's only one place to go, - Teddy Bo, Teddy Bo, Teddy Bo!

If it's not rain lashing against the windows, it's hailstones, it's freezing, wet and windy so the best place to be is in the craft room although I do have to venture out to do some Christmas shopping today so boots, scarf and gloves are a must have I think.

Over at Teddy Bo this week we are half way through our White Christmas challenge, and I have a card to show you made with one of this week's new images. I love this image, it would be perfect to use for a husband, a wife Mum and Dad, Sister and Brother-in-law etc., etc., etc.

I decided to make a card for my hubby, who after seeing the sentiment saying wonderful husband, asked me if I had another one tucked away somewhere as it couldn't possibly be meant for him after all the moaning I do at him LOL!
