Whimsical Neighbourhood !

Afternoon everyone,
Its got very chilly again, and we have a sprinkling of snow on the mountains ! I took a pic this morning from the car , not a good pic , sorry ! we often get snow in the winter months, but it never lasts very long and doesn't cause any problems as its mainly on the mountains and higher ground.We are in for more on Thursday..I love it !
The card l am sharing today, has another digi from Lyn  (spider)  her digi store can be found at Dragonsmoore, I have used this image before on a halloween card,so its very versatile and was a freebie.I have coloured it with promarkers and pencils. I have added some stickles glitter glue,to give it a fun feel ! The  butterflies are recycled and I have applied glue and different coloured Cosmic Glitters. l have added some little flowers and gems..The satin ribbon and papers are all from my stash.Its a large 8x8 card ....l am entering this card into the following challenges..
Wishing you all a lovely evening ! susan x

Last night was the 3 kings parade and after the kiddies get their pressy's.When the children were younger we use to have all the main presents on Christmas Day and then smaller things were all wrapped and placed in a box for each of them,which were later delivered to the house by a horse drawn cart and the Kings helpers...very magical l can tell you ! here are a few pics from the parade last night...Wishing you all a lovely evening !
