Dashing through the snow!

Good morning all!

What chilly weather we're having! Lots of snow & freezing temperatures does not bode well for a District Nurse. Work has proved extremely difficult this week, but I am so proud of my girls and their dedication to the job. The most vunerable and sick patients have all been seen, even though it has meant us walking miles through the snow and freezing conditions! I love my job especially in the summer, but weather like this really tests your resolve!

Anyhow, onto my card. I though I would share with you today another card I have made with the adorable dasher. I am loving Kraft with red this year for christmas cards, its got a bit of a vintage feel about it I think.


CS: SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Choc Chip and Red CS from my stash

Image: SU Dasher

Sentiment: Paula Pascual christmas sentiments

Tools: Rollagraph Snowflakes wheel, SU Oval punch, SU Ink in Choc Chip and Ruby Red

Misc: Sponges for inking/distressing the edges

I've seen a few dasher cards recently where people have added some adhesive rhinestones to his antlers, so as an afterthought I'm going to add some to his!

Well I'd best dash (no pun intended) and get ready for work. Last day and then have 9 days off to catch up on some christmas shopping, wrapping and card making! I can't believe there's only 22 days to go until the big day. Hope you're all getting prepared!

Thanks for stopping by, I really love to read your comments and know you've stopped by.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

I agree there's a lovely vintage feel to this card and I love your subtle stamped Kraft layer. You District Nurses are doing a wonderful job and if I ran the country you'd be getting a hefty pay rise!

The kraft and red do work really well together Vicky. A lovely card.
So glad there's people like you and your fellow nurses about, your dedication puts things into perspective. Keep up the great work.x

A beautiful card Vicky. You nurses want a bloomin medal for doing such a fabulous job in these conditions... Take care and enjoy your time off.
