Transport

Thank you my crafty pals for your comforting comments and e-mails, so pleased you all liked my card also. Why Oh! Why are most of my relatives male, good job they all like cars and football. Since I bought my first cutter I have been on the lookout for a die that would cut a penny farthing. I now have it and the scrap from it was used for the matching banner. I could not wait to put it to use and as I need a card for my nephew next week, his favourite thing is sports cars I thought combining the two would be a giggle. I may even continue to make male cards for some time as I have none in the box. 
I am wondering if we are the only place where it is still snowing, just light flurries at the moment. The sky was an amazing red this morning but I was too sleepy to take a photo. Anyway I shall post this and then hopefully catch up on a bit of blogging. Take care all and I hope you don't get flooded. xx Flora
