Season's Tweetings & new stash

Hello lovely peeps,
Oops a daisy I think I must have forgotten to hit publish after scheduling my post for yesterday & as I was working a very long shift & didn't get around to checking it, sorry peeps, better late than never I guess :)

On to my card -

& this week our challenge is
My lovely teamies and I are featuring some fabulous LAWN FAWN products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.
I've used Lawn Fawn's cute Winter Sparrows & dies on my card & I've used embossing paste with Simon's gorgeous falling snow stencil.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Have you seen the new website?
Don't forget to visit the new SIMON SAYS STAMP STORE BLOG  for lots of fabulous inspiration, candy, and lots of  lovely new or featured products.

 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Addicted To Stamps - thing with wings
 My friend Ali & I had a lovely day at the Shepton Mallet craft show which was a nice surprise as after buying the tickets online & then reading the list of exhibitors I didn't have high hopes for it being a good one as there didn't seem to be many stalls for paper crafters, but thankfully there was stash a plenty & was actually the best one I've been to for a while.
Here's a peek at my latest haul :)
I love the new storage cube the best although I haven't got around to putting anything in it or even looking at my new stash again since I got home as I photographed it especially for our lovely Lols & then packed it away again waiting for a rainy day to sort it out and play with it. Why wait for a rainy day you will probably think! Well I spent a small fortune, no actually a large fortune on new fences, chipping, decking, garden furniture, a log burner, gazebo etc for the garden, & I can't leave the poor husband to struggle & get everything done outside while I play inside especially as he is still recovering from his stroke, or can I lol.
As you can see from the top piccy I bought fabric & some wadding stuff as I am going to attempt my first sewing project! I do mean attempt as it's not long ago I couldn't use a sewing machine & had trouble with sewing in straight lines, but I am going to try as my project looks fabulous in my head lol.
I love the new Gorjuss girls & they were waiting for me when I got home from the show as I'd ordered them online a couple of days before.
As you can see I am actually wanting a nice rainy bank holiday weekend so I can play in my craft room so typically the sun is bound to come out lol.
That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by
