Well, here at Chez Hels we have had a lovely snowfall :O)) Apparently, it is the first time for 34 years that we have had snow in October. I looooove snow and was so excited last night that I went off into the garden, armed with my camera, and I took a few photo's. It is not often that we get any snow here so this was a treat! However, poor old Grim was not best pleased at all. He went off to watch his beloved Luton Town last night and was home fifteen mins after kick-off.....cos the match was abandoned!
Here is the template for your Pocket:
Anyways, the In My Pocket theme for this week is Snow. I know a few of you are making your Christmas cards and I figured that you could make a Pocket as an alternative maybe and most of us have something snowy in our stash.
Here are some piccies of the garden, last night and then this morning. I took my life in my hands as it has frozen solid and the patio was really slippery, somehow I managed to keep upright which is nothing short of a miracle as I am so clumsy LOL
The above piccie was taken just using a normal setting on the camera - but it didn't really come out as I had hoped....so, once I had saved this one, I fiddled about in Photo Shop and got this effect:
Believe it or not, this photo was taken at about 9pm last night...I know it looks like daytime doesn't it? The wonders of computers and digital photo's eh?
And then this morning, I took these photo's: You can see loads of paw prints on the lawn, so I think that the local foxes must have had a party out there last night!!
And I am so not impressed because I didn't see the weather warning and still had all my little plants out on the patio - which are no doubt frozen and dead as dodo's now :O(( I usually bring all the soft plants in over winter so I can use them again, year after year....but I will be lucky if I can rescue any of them this year!
This piccie shows that the snow was quite deep...it is all thawing out now so I am going to make the most of it and try to make a snowman later...well, a mini snowman at least :O))
Anyway, enough of being terribly British and talking about the weather.....Here is the Pocket that I made for todays theme:
I used some fabby stamps from Inkadinkado and clear embossed them and then coloured the card with Distress Inks in Broken China and Faded Jeans. I edged the Pocket and the little messages with white embossing powder and then added a gorgoeus snowflake embellie from Imaginisce and used a snowflake charm and brad as a closure.
Once you have made your Pocket, please leave a post here and add a link to where you are showing yours.
Hugs Hels x
