Shades of Grey

Hello!
Where is the time going?  Christmas is almost here and so much to do ... I managed to post a lot of things overseas the other day and my DH said I could have paid off the 3rd world debt with that postage!

We have a relatively new (to some) postage rate for cards ... Most of the time they have to have a Large letter stamp which of course costs more than a normal stamp ... Unfortunately not everyone realises this and we've had to pay for cards sent to us without the correct stamp ... Kind of takes the spirit of Christmas away doesn't it? 
Take note Post Office people!

So... I have cards to share ... One piece of CS, One piece of DP and 2 snowflakes makes for 2 cards


To be honest those snowflakes were redundant Christmas tree ornaments that I've had for a long time


I just love the the grey colours...


.... and those curves and though you really can't see it the word Sparkle does have a sparkle to it


As I write I have just received a package of new dies from Simon Says Stamp Yay!!
Got to find more time to play!!

I'm linking up to Just Us Girls



Have a lovely Day!

Very pretty Ros!
Thanks for your info on Gluten free, Clare is not only vegetarian, she is also a Vegan, which is different from vegetarian, so she doesn't eat meat because she is a vegetarian, and she doesn't eat product with gluten because she is a vegan, see how hard to cook for her?

Lisette Baker said...

So elegant Ros and I love the colour palette.

Greta said...

Absolutely stunning, Ros! You should enter this at the Colour Me challenge. Hoping my cards to England don't cost the people. It's getting to where everything mailed is going to have to be 1 layer & that's just not right.

Charlene said...

Well Roz I agree with you the postage overseas so much money especially if you send more than just a card speaking of cards absolutely love these they are gorgeous

Charlene said...

Well Ros I agree with you about the postage it's a small fortune just to mail something overseas speaking of cards your cards are absolutely gorgeous I love them

Maria said...

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Wonderful card, I like the shades of grey.
Please, come and visit our little town Wernigerode, it's in Saxony-Anhalt, in the Harz-Mountain, nice nature around :-)

For me is not a good time now and take a little blog break.
