Your Kindness Warms My Heart

Hi Guys!
Can you believe I actually made this card today and am posting it? Lately Ive been working about three weeks ahead so this seems so strange to me. And yet I feel so efficient cos its not cluttering up my drafts.
Anyway, I thought I'd better color up this little guy while it was still "winter" though we have seen precious little in the way of winter this year and no white stuff at all. Doesn't seem like winter without snow. But if I was in South Africa it would probably be 90 degrees and yet winter....strange..
Today is about 60 degrees and rainy. And thats another thing we haven't seen much of ~ rain . My poor ducks.:(  But I'm not going to go on and on talking about the weather cos then you'd know I've been married to my British hubby an awwwwwwwful long time! lol
Back to the card!
Another first for me:
Lace doily.
hmmmmmmm..not sure. I think lace doilies should have a cup of tea and cookie on them, but it does add...something.

Colors: Prismacolors and Lyras

A few challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons - snowmen/snowflakes 
House That Stamps Built -  Scenic with snow
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love this card and the fun it gives. You manage to capture the movement of the image so well Dorcas with your colouring skills and the stitching is divine; adds such a special touch.

We had very little snow last week - but this years winter is not really a winter... I don´t care - spring is welcome!
Adorable card! Yes, a doily most often adds a very nice accent to a project!

I love this! The colors are great, love the image and you know I love the doily! They are great with a cup of tea and a cookie, but when you are done with that they are great on a card!

Sending warm hugs your way! I'm lovin' this snow is just "ducky" as far as I'm concerned!!! hehehe! Pat
