That's just too cute hun! Love the paper piece animals, they are adorable! Just had a horrid journey in to work - but the office bad weather policy says (basically) if you don't get here you will be dismembered and shot, and we don't care how you get home! It is going to be a joyous day I feel. Not. Hope you have a good one! Huggles Sxx

What a delightful card, love those cute animals :o)
I don't understand why schools shut down when it snows, they never did when I was at school or when my kids were!

I love your cute card Nic, those little animals are adorable.
I hope that Jack has a wonderful day, how lucky for him to have a snow day off school. Our snow didn't start until 7am this morning so my children still went to school but then they sent them all home after the first lesson!
Take care and I hope you have a good day

Ella's Design said...

Sweet card, Nic - but that poor little giraffe! I suppose it's better than him being legless, ha , ha ;o)!! Great paper piecing, it adds so much more to a stamped image.
My boys are home from school too and although the snow's not particularly deep, it is like a blizzard - they've gone off sledging with friends, so will no doubt come back like cold drowned rats!!
Happy Birthday, Jack! Hope you all have a fantastic day, despite the snow! Hugs, Lisa x
