Lovely papers and some photos

I popped onto Pink Petticoat's website to look at their gallery, and found they had a sale on. This set of 'Perfect' papers, twenty four in all, were just £1.25! Bargain! I bought some more too, which no doubt you will see very soon. I teamed them up with a Waltzing Mouse frame cut with Nestie labels 18. The Butterfly is an old Elusive Images/ Chocolate Baroque one coloured with promarkers.
 At Allsorts this week they are having a Free and Easy February, so I've decided to enter it into their challenge.
Well, I've got a week off school, so I'm going to indulge myself with a bit of crafting this week. Best place to be in this weather! I drove up to see my Dad for a couple of hours this afternoon and couldn't resist stopping to take a few photos. There is something about  the light on days like today that I just love.

Thanks for looking!
P.S. I'm feeling very honoured that Chrissie and Mandi of  "Less is More" chose my card as one of the showCASe cards for week 52.

Good for you - lovely photos. We don't have any snow, so it seems really strange to see it but it's so, so cold and grey. Great to see your card showcased - Congratulations! Well deserved.

Lovely card, too. Enjoy your break. Unfortunately, no half term for me because of the courses I'm teaching but never mind - not even sure I'll make it back in yet, after a week off sick - not much improvement. Stay warm x

I was so pleased to see your card showcased at LiM Sally! This card is lovely too - I like the contrast between the dots and the floral paper. Have a good week off and enjoy your crafting! Vicky x

Well done on being showcased on LIM Sally, you really deserve it! This card is another beauty and those papers are 'perfect'. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous (even though I dislike snow intensely, lol). It has been bitterly cold today but very pretty and bright and your pics show that perfectly.

What a pretty card, Sally, those papers certainly were a bargain and they are beautiful.
I love your photos, very you with the trees. It's amazing how much colour there is in the Winter when you stop to look isn't there?
Looks like you had more snow than us!!!
Hope you are having a good weekend and enjoy half term.
