Frosty The Snowman to name but a few

Well, this week has been a very trying week for me, firstly I seem to be infection free yay but with the sudden news and then the funeral of my father, an abdominal mass investigation and then to finish it all off the death of an old school friend's wife who was only 33!! Hence I am really hoping that this is my lot for the bad news and that I am going to get the all clear for the investigation and THEN perhaps my Christmas period can begin. My cards are all made with the exception of the one's for my husband and youngest son and all the present are now brought so just waiting for a bombardment of deliveries now.

 My card for today fits into a few challenges and I will list them below but before that you have to have a look at the cute snowman stamp I used, it is one of the new stamps available from Crafty Sentiments his name is 'Frosty'.
