WOYWW, A mess, a card and winter wonderland!

Good morning my dear bloggy friends!

I hope you are warm and safe! I am about to go to the doctor - no not about the cough - it is still there but obviosly at my age you have to check up on other things too! Anyway I am just warning you that this will be rather short and sweet! Well a few more photos but I guess you need them to be able to snoop! Queen Julia will forgive me I hope......hop over there for the fun!
So lets start with my desk....

A right mess as you can see - I was making a card for my mom - she will be 79 on Friday - I think there is everything you could possibly use for a card on there..... I also messed up on this side...

and on the floor.....

Well then I should show you the card I made for my mom.....lots of texture...... I am not sure she will like it - it might be a bit too artsy for her.....

and here is a close up......

and now to finish up a few photos of our lovely winter wonderland......only wonderland on photos in reality hazardland.....my path to the carpark


We have a forma viva in front of our faculty door - I thought it looked quite nice in its winter dress....


And the last photo I will bore you with is this romantic evening one.....

I have to rush now....have a lovely day, a lovely snoop and I will see you soon!

Lots of hugs to all of you,


  1. Thanks for sharing all the lovely photos. Snow is pretty, but, a lot of work. We are having 40 today and weekend -10 unusual weather, no snow or ice since before Christmas, It has been wonderful to go and not worry about getting back. Happy WOYWW, your mother's card is so pretty, wish her Happy Birthday. #13

  2. She will love the card because you made it!! It is so pretty and feminine and PINK! Gorgeous :)
    We have snow scenes like that in the UK as well, not in Burbage yet but it's due on Friday....just as well we're not going far!
    But it will (hopefully) be sunny and warm and gorgeous in June for the crop....hooray!!!
    Hugs, LLJ 38 xx

  3. I should've thought she'll love that card - quite apart from being beautiful, it's made with such love (just look at all the mess it generated!)... Love the winter wonderland too, thank you for sharing it. We had our usually sprinkling of snow, gone by the next morning - bah! Happy WOYWW!

  5. Hope you're ok, take care! Your Mum's card is gorgeous, I love it!! Great photos... stay safe in the snow, don't want you damaging your knee again! Helen, 10

  6. Your snowy pics are stunning but please take care out there and hope your visit to the Dr goes well.

  7. Make sure you rush slowly and take care in all the snow! Stay safe. Super pics but poor you having to get around in all that!
    I am sure your Mum will love the special card you made, it's fabulous!
    Lots of love Jo x No14

  8. beautiful card for your Mom. I would bet she will love it! Hope everything went well at the doctors office. Went last Wednesday and was pleased I was 12.5 pounds lighter and blood pressure was better! Wish we had some snow here...I would even take rain. We are already being threatened with water rationing and it is winter! Have a great week. Vickie #43

  9. Your winter photos are gorgeous and are never boring. Wishing your mum a lovely birthday, just like the card.

    Happy WOYWW Mrs.C #46 {i think?!}

  12. Love your snowy photos, beautiful to look at but not as nice to walk through. An early Happy Birthday to your Mum, she will love the pretty card you made for her.

  13. Your card is simply amazing! So much texture. Also love the colors. Thanks for showing the snow. All we get is rain!

  14. I am sure she will love the card because you made it just for her. As for the snow and the trees, I'm a little pleased that we have warm weather here in Aus..

    Hope all goes well at the doctors.


  15. Beautiful card, and yes, your Mom will love it, YOU made it didn't you!! The snow is lovely to LOOK at, I know how dangerous it can be. Lived in snow country as a kid......long, long, long time ago, but I do remember that part.

  16. what a wonderful card so much colour and texture I am sure your mum will love it,

  17. Lovely card for your Mum, which I am sure she will love because you made it, even if not to her taste? Your snow scenes look lovely, we have some too, and its cold outside but yours looks much nicer!! ;) Annette #3

  18. I am sure she will love the card. The snow looks lovely but then it always does when one is inside or it is on a photograph. Good luck at the doctor's I am waiting for mine to get back to me about a check up, seems you can't make appointments on Wednesdays.

  19. Fab snow pics and such a great card! Take care Zo xx 80

  20. I hope your check up goes well, and that your mom loves her artsy card, I bet she will adore it! Love, love the winter pictures, we never get anything close to that over here! ♥ waving hi from the soggy laden hills of North Carolina :)

  21. I know it's extremem and very cold, but your photos are beautiful, specially the romantic one! I think your card is lovely, your Mum will love it whatever, because it's made by you - and if you don't mind me saying, it indicates your generosity of spirit - all those embellishments, so like you to give so much!

  22. The card is lovely; I'm sure your mom will love it. It's from her crafty daughter, after all!

    The snow photos are just beautiful. I love the look right after a snow storm.

    Happy WOYWW

  23. Lovely photo's you have a lovely amount of snow. Love your projects as well.

  24. What a winter wonderland - so pretty!!! I'm sure your Mom will love her card. LOVE all the embellishments you used! Isn't that bird punch fun???!!!

  25. Lovely card for your Mom. I agree with the hazardland. Snow is pretty to look at, but not pretty to be out in when you have places to go. Be careful.

    Sorry I am a day late. Fighting the nasty flu.

  27. Brrr, but beautiful! Your photos are lovely and so is your card for your mom's birthday! I hope all is well with your checkup and maybe you got something to help with the cough! Feel better and have a great week! Darnell #64

  29. Love that mess and what you create in the middle of it...(that's what works best with me too) :)
