Lilac Mum.....

The snow arrived and Lewis and Eleanor had a good time with their friends - they are back to school so now I just want it all to go away !!
I drive a car which is a rear wheel drive and it is no joy in this weather - in fact I haven't been out all weekend because I'm so scared. John's is a 4WD but it safest me being in my craft room !!
Teddy Bo have some gorgeous images and when I was asked to make a bear card for a friend's mother I knew just which bear I was going to use.
I used a digital backing paper which I purchased on Etsy. The ribbon is May Arts which I bought in bulk from SE Simons - unfortunately there is a minimum order so I just had to purchase lots of other gorgeous ribbon too !!
