The view from my window and The Raspberry suite challenge #21

I know this should have been yesterdays post, but Hubby couldn't get to work and hogged the computer, better late than never! I took this picture yesterday, but the scenery hasn't changed much, unfortunately!

Don't get me wrong, I love snow, but it's so much more fun on the first day. I like to have fun with the boys, throwing snowballs, making a snowman, as much as the next person, but I don't like how it disrupts everything. My youngest is starting exams next week, he needs to be in school!

Thats my rant for today, now for something fun.
Dawn McVey has set challenge #21 over on her blog and I thought I would join in this time, she left a video encouraging us all to take part. Soo this is the first card of 2010 for My brother and SIL who will be celebrating 23 years of marriage next month.

It's not the exact colours, but the best I could do with Stampin' up card. I used my fave stamps, Damask Designs (By Dawn)
fancy flourishes and Text style, all by Papertrey Ink. I used my new nestabilities die and corner chomper from my neice Hannah.
Hope you like C x
