Frosty the Armless Snowman….

I forgot his arms lol….  but will put this right when I get back up to the workshop tonight!

I started this card off last night and had to wait overnight on the Snowtex drying and hardening.

Today however, I have mainly been shovelling snow… dug out the elderly neighbours driveway at the bottom of the street, then dug out my landie as someone was coming today to look at it 🙂 he’s coming back tomorrow again so fingers crossed he buys it 🙂

So… my arms are like jelly my hands shake when I try to grip anything lol I think I overdid the snow shifting!!! the last time I remember any body part feeling weak and wobbbly was when I went horse riding a few years back, hadn’t been for years and went on a 2 hour hack… I couldnt drive home lol, I couldnt feel my legs.. so you would have thought I’d have learnt my lesson.. not 😉
