More Snow and a Touch of Easter

Morning folks. We have woken up to yet more snow again here in West Yorkshire. I'm getting a bit fed up with this endless Winter now, when will Spring finally arrive? I ventured into the garden yesterday with the vain hope of doing something but I was so cold after half an hour I retired back in to a pile of ironing instead!!

This is the view from my kitchen window today. Even the cat is fed up at not being able to go out. She hates wet feet.

The poor little daffs have white hats on.

Even if the weather has other ideas I have heard a rumour that Easter is not far away so I've been busy making some cards. I got these Forever Friend Easter stamps last year in a sale and I love the fact that there are some Easter Eggs on their own so you don't have to have the bears if you don't want. I love those cute chicks though.

I've kept them quite simple and coloured them with promarkers.

As the weather is so miserable I have given myself the day off to play with the new goodies I treated myself too at the GNPE in Harrogate on Saturday. I had some Christmas and Birthday money to spend and couldn't resist the new CHA spellbinder dies. They are gorgeous. I'll be back later in the week to share what I make with them.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Monday if you can.

Keep warm and Happy Crafting.

These are gorgeous Lisa. Love the colours and the images are great.
I know what you mean about the winter dragging on. We woke up to snow yesterday too and it was snowing with Hubby at work last night as well!

Ooh, poor you with that weather... don't send it over the Pennines or I won't be able to fly off to the 12 inches they've got in Germany!
Lovely cards and I adore the cute teeny chicks,

I remember going camping (?? big mistake) one Easter before I had kids. It snowed - lots - probably about 4 -5 inches.I was in hospital after the birth of my first daughter at Easter too - and it snowed then - and yet we are still surprised when it snows around Easter time now. Weird!
Your Easter cards are lovely - haven't seen that set of stamps but they look really useful.Have fun with your new dies. I'm going to the NEC on Saturday so will have to see if I can resist them.
