Snow Pals

Morning all, how are we today?  Thanks for everyone who asked after mum - I am pleased to report that the endoscopy last week didn't reveal anything and she is slowly improving.  The poor old girl managed to pick up a dose of campylobacter (a food poisoning bacteria) and has been really poorly.  I didn't appreciate just how serious this particularly bug can be and what permanent damage it can do (heart problems, paralysis, and in worst case, death) so dad and I are somewhat relieved that mum is now, after five weeks, starting to feel brighter.  Thank you for all your good wishes.

Right, parental report over, let's do a card shall we?


So, what do we have here then:
Stamp is Snow Pals - a Mo Manning design from Stamping Bella
Painted with a limited palette of Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Peacock Feathers, Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose, Black Soot, Weathered Wood
The trellis die is a Spellbinders one but I have cut it down to fit
Papers are a mixture of Nitwits/LOTV pads
Woodware and X-Cut snowflake punches
Sentiment was a magazine freebie
Sparkly silver border peel-off from stash

Our old car (17 year old Toyota) went in for it's MOT on Friday and thankfully it passed but needed a new wiper blade and we have an advisory note for two front tyres so we are pretty pleased.  When we picked the car up there was no Pass certificate with the other paperwork (which I didn't notice at the time) so we are popping down to the garage today to collect it.  Which gives us a great excuse to have a wander around town looking for Christmas presents.  And Toad can buy me lunch, although I haven't told him yet.

Have yourself a happy little Monday.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I couldn't go to bed without popping over here first ! I love this image, it really makes me smile (did you know I'm rather fond of penguins!! LOL)
And I'm glad that your mum is starting to perk up. Hope that continues, but it was best to make sure and go through all those tests.
