Bit of a late start

OK, Joke's over now! I LOVE snow but I've had my fill of it for the time being, thank you very much!  When it first arrived last Friday, I leapt for joy when I learned that school was closed for the day.  Snow does something magical to the whole world and I find myself coming over all poetic like!! I took my camera out and snapped away at everything that didn't move, and lots of things that did move, and with every snap I found myself saying "That's my Christmas Cards for this year sorted!!" LOL!  However, when I woke up this morning to find we'd had another coating, I was less than amused.   Even more so when I reached school to find that one of our teacher's has had an awful accident trying to get to school!  That's the reality of snow - most of the children are in catchment, i.e. walking distance, but many, if not most of the teachers at my school are at least 20 minutes drive away. 

And so, as it's still looking like a Christmas Card out there, I decided to use the wintry theme on my Midweek Magnolias project this week for our Anything Goes theme.  And I have made my very first ever Spinner Card!! Woohoo!  See:

While I was planning my card, I decided that I wanted to use Blues so that I could also show this in the brand new Stamp and Create with Magnolia challenge blog and I decided to use my 'Vintaged' Tilda and my 'retro' paper's once more:

I've often wanted to make a spinner card but wasn't sure how to go about it, but with the help of a CD and a slightly smaller roll of sticky tape, I managed to come up with this and it was actually relatively simple.  However, I couldn't find any stamps small enough to fit inside my window so I had to get creative with a fine point liner!  My card will also spin to say:

and Season's Greetings, as in the header picture.

Well that's it for today - I should have posted this this morning but unfortunately all this snow is taking me away from my normal duties - having to brush snow off my car at 7am is absolutely no fun at all and takes up too much valuable time that would be better spent in front of the fire! LOL!
