A winter birthday card

Welcome......to the frozen wastelands.........frozen snow, on top of frozen snow, on top of frozen snow......the only way to get out of our hilly road at the moment would be on a sledge.........so this card is very apt today.
I sometimes sell cards to friends and family.......I always have supplies of cute girly cards.......you may have noticed how much I love them.......but very rarely 'male' cards.......so I aim to make more of them this year.......I even need them myself sometimes!!.......just seem to find them more difficult to do.

Have used my lovely new Edwin........coloured with copics...........DCWV card and Winter Stack [I love this pack]..............the snowflake stickers were in a sale pack in Tescos last week!!!!.......the snow has been Stickled.
Cute Card Thursday want 'something new'......that's Edwin and the stickers, Pollycraft Monday want 'winter birthday' and One Stop Craft Challenge want 'something beginning with b'.....could be boy,blue or birthday.
OH has returned from Germany........and has strict instructions to come home with some 'real' milk........the UHT type just doesn't taste the same!!!!

Male cards are always trickier, but this one is lovely :-) I really ought to check my own stock of birthday cards - I've been focussing on scrapping lately instead...

This is really nice Jacky, love Edwin the best and he is coloured so beautifully, when he has finished with that sledge, (and you lol) can I borrow it? We seem to have the very same weather as you and no end in sight!!
