Time to have fun

Good morning,
We have real miserable, wet and windy weather here today
My car is officially a write off, which means the courtesy car has to go back today, 
as they will only lend us a car if our car was to be repaired.
At least there's only one more day of school and I have done my Christmas shopping!
We're lucky enough to have Darrens work truck to get about in over Christmas too.
And at the end of the day there's a lot of people far worse off ~ so mustn't grumble.
xXx
I have a card to share this morning,
It's an order for a 40th birthday and he loves skiing, 
Because it's on Jan 1st I could get away with making a wintery card ~ just hope it doesn't look too Christmassy, with the snow!
I have used:
LOTV ~ Ski jump and sentiment
Magnolia papers
Kraft
Tim Holtz ~ DIs and Weathered clock
Nestabilities ~ Scallop and Classic circles
Sizzix ~ Number die
SU ~ Corner punch
Snowtex, cotton scrim, buttons and staples from stash
xXx
Hope he likes it!
Thanks for looking
BIG HUGZ

Sorry to hear about your car but hope your insurers will offer at least a reasonable amount for it - good luck in your search for a replacement. How's the whiplash?

Love the card - a perfect image for the card commission, no, it doesn't look too Christmas-y

All the best
