Snow in Summer

It seems like ages since I've done a MAWTT blog post - that's cause it has been ages, and it will be ages again cause we are still running on monthly challenges.

Today's challenge was set by Hazel before she left the team, but with a bit of luck she will join us as we follow the theme,

Snow in Summer

& I can honestly say that although we haven't had snow this Summer, it has been the coldest, wettest summer I can remember in a long time!  So heaven help us when we reach Winter!

Anyway, back to my card and just for a change, I've gone Bugaboo!  Papers are LOTV and the card is finished off with pearls & a ribbon.


So I haven't gone too snowy with this one, just a layer on the branch and some snowflake papers, but it's up to you whether you go for an all out blizzard or just a smidge!

Challenges;
Winter Wonderland - Songs - "When the Red Red Robin comes Bob Bob Bobbin Along!"
As You Like It - Fur or Feathers - Any other time of year it has to be fur (Cats) but at Christmas Mr Robin steals the show!
Holly Jolly Christmas - Feathered Friends
Top Tip Tuesday - Ribbon & Pearls
The Ribbon Girls - Just add ribbon Jx
