Snowflakes in April

Good morning

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  The weather was gorgeous here yesterday but doesn't look like it's going to be quite as nice today because it has just started to rain. 

Yesterday I met up with Lynsey and Marianne.  Lynsey and Marianne know each other through work but it was the first time I had met them but within minutes of meeting them we were all chatting like we had known each other for years.  To start off we went into a coffee shop for some refreshments and then we went to my local craft shop because we really NEEDED some crafty purchases lol!  We have followed each others blogs for a long time so it was lovely to meet them both at last.  We have all said we will definitely have to meet up again.

Last night I made a Christmas card as I had promised Marianne that I would try to enter a card for the Winter Wonderland challenge this week.  Both Marianne and Lynsey are on theWinter Wonderland DT and are offering candy on their blogs along with some of the other DT members if you enter this week's challenge so lots of chances to win this week.  Check out the Winter Wonderland blog for the details.
