A chilly Sun rise and some Snow!

Good Morning!

Hope you are well today?
I have not been feeling myself for a few days but feel better today! yay! I had been away on a trade workshop weekend seeing all the lovely new products and had fun playing with this in workshops...

however being I very rarely eat processed food and the weekend was all that I was not left feeling great at the end of it!
I think I am now getting back to normal and feel a whole lot better!

I went swimming this morning and just have to share this photo I took at 6.50am on my phone... 
Look like we are in for some bad rain today hu!

So onto this fortnights challenge at As You Like It Challenge
Our sponsor this week is Happy Hippo

The theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Sentiment and tell us why!
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Well I have to agree with Annette at AYLI because my favourite occasion is also Christmas, So my favourite sentiment is Seasons Greetings and the reason is - I have friends all over the world and this greeting works for them all.
Here are some challenges I am playing along with:

Simon Says Stamp Something SSS sells - Stampendous FRANTAGE
City Crafter Challenge - Colour - White,Aqua,Silver & Green
Creative Card Crew  - Christmas
Creative Craft Challenges - Use Ribbon
Holly Jolly Christmas - Non Traditional Christmas
LEJ Designs - Winter Wishes
Papertake Weekly - Make It Sparkle

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Sentiment.
