Blog Candy

Scroll down for my more recent posts.

Tomorrow I'm jetting off to a colder climate, my bags are almost packed, thermals are in there too. Hubby and I are going to Canada with our Daughter, Son-in-law and Grandson. My Daughter and Son-in-law are skiing for the first week in Whistler (while hubby and I babysit) before we go to Vancouver and spend sometime with my Son-in-laws family there, flying home on 21st February. So while I'm away I've decide to leave you with some blog candy. I started blogging in 2010 and have slowly built up my followers who now number 110. This is the first time that I've done this so I hope that I'm doing it right.

I'm not going to add a linkup there's just 3 things that I would like you to do and that's:

1, Be a or become a follower.
2, Added a picture of the candy to your blog sidebar.
3, Leave me a comment.

I will post overseas should the winner be from outside of the UK.

This will run from 1st February though to the end 28th February. I will draw a persons name from a hat after that date.

I'm not sure that I will be blogging while I'm away, as I'm sure we are going to be busy.

Rudolph Days - February

Well I'm back from my travels and this scene is very reminiscent of the weather conditions for some of our stay in Canada. We arrived on the Thursday evening, setting out for Whistler and the ski slopes early Friday morning, as we left the drive at 7.00 a.m. it started to snow and continued to snow for the 2 1/2 hour drive. I must say that the Canadians cope with snow far better than we do in the UK, the cars had snow tyres on and drove through the snow without the slightest slide anywhere. We spent a week in Whistler where it continued to snow on and off all week. By the time we left they had had about 60 - 90 cms (this added to the snow that was already there, was more snow than I have ever seen before). We returned to Vancouver after the first week to find that they had snow there also (this is something that does not happen very often so I'm told). We had an enjoyable stay with my son-in-laws family for a further 11 days before returning home on Tuesday of this week. I think I have now recovered from jet lag although hubby is still having problems sleeping past 4.30 a.m. We spent an enjoyable few hours in Maureen's (Scrappy Mo) and her husband Al's company, where we had a great lunch and then went Craft shopping and of course a great deal of chatting. Thank you Maureen for a great day, hope we can return the hospitality some when soon.

 Anyway onto my card for this months challenge. The stamp is from an American company called C.C. Designs and was bought in the sale after Christmas from Oyster Stamps. I stamped onto some very smooth water colour card (bought on my visit with Maureen from a lovely little art shop) and coloured with Aqua pro markers. I then added some stickles to the image and went around the edges with glue and glitter, before matting and putting onto an A6 card base.

Of course I didn't stop at one, I made four to pop into the box for next Christmas.
Just a reminder that I have blog Candy running until the 28th of the month too.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
