Good evening everyone

I hope that you have had a great easter and that the easter bunny bought you lots of choccies.

We had some very welcome visitors over the weekend. Gary, my eldest son, brought his wife and children to visit. Eva is learning to crawl at the moment. She is able to assume the position but hasn't quite got the method right. It looks like she is doing press-ups. Bless, she is so cute.

We decided to take the whole family to Lyme Regis, so that the girls could go fossil hunting. I cant believe just how cold it was, but there is nothing like eating chips on the sea front whilst wrapped up in hats, scarves and gloves.

I can't believe that it's snowing yet again. We have had a few days of sunny (but bitter) weather and then this morning I opened the curtains to reveal snow flurries. This has continued on and off throughout the day but there has not been enough to settle.

Here is today's card:

I have used a 'free' stamp that came attached to the front of a magazine and stamped it onto white card that i have 'aged' with a very old and dry ink pad. The image has been mounted on several layers of patterned paper and card from my stash. Cogs are die cuts and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. I finished the card with blue brads.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
