Its a tad bit cold out there!!!

Hello there! Happy Sunday....hope you've had a lovely weekend so far.

My part of the world continues to be covered in snow (it has snowed all day!!)...I have decided that this is the best method of transport....

 
Yes, those are my feet and yes thats Joe pulling me along!! Poor thing!! Personally I think it counts as exercise and will help him work off the yummy Welsh Cakes that he devoured when we got home....
 
 
My mum used to make these when we were little, me and my sister would be lined up next to the stove waiting to eat them hot and fresh from the griddle pan!!
 
Inspired by the weather outside I have created the following card today....
 
 
Just what everyone needs...a pretty mug of hot chocolate (or tea or coffee!!).
 
The fab layout comes from this week's sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
 
 
I've added a little sentiment box at the bottom...hope thats ok SSW ladies!!
 
My pretty mug image has been paper pieced, and I've gone with wintery blue colours....I love that blue cloudy backing paper, it goes perfectly with my punched snowflakes. I've added a little sparkle to the snowflakes using my Stickles.
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Fab Sketch!
Love to Create - Sparkle & Snowflakes
 
Pop by all these fab challenge blogs to see the beautiful DT cards that have been created!
 
Thanks for popping by today,
hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful card Wedgie. And, I love the paper peicing on the mug. It is gorgeous. I am still giggling about you being pulled behind Joe. Your Welch cakes look so yummy. I love it when you sharing all the things you have been baking.

Welcome back Wedgie! It's always terrific to have to play along with us at SSW! Your card warms me up just looking at it. We have 1 degree F temps this morning and I can use this hot cup of chocolate to start my day! The paper piecing is perfect for this image and I love the touch of sparkle on the edge. Fab card and fab cakes! Now my stomach is growling!! He he!
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Sharon
