My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

5 February 2012

Why Thank You Mr Bear

Evening everyone - hope you are staying warm and toasty inside.  We had snow in Coventry yesterday afternoon and all of last night, luckily no more today.  Mark thought it would be a good idea to go for a walk this morning to get some milk, well I nearly went on my backside a few times, good job he was holding on to me!

So I got into my crafty space this afternoon and made this:

Card Ingredients:
