Hi there peeps, I'm posting a card for the OSAAT DT challenge this fortnight and our theme is AG with Gratitude.   Now I bet you are thinking what the heck has this card to do with Gratitude??  - weeeell - you see I'm always grateful for a bit of the old cold white stuff aka SNOW!  I know that this is not going to be popular with everyone but, as you can see from my profile pic, I did my first snow angel when I was 60 and I just want the chance to do another one!  We usually have 6 flakes, a cough and a splutter and it's all gone!  

We would love to see your creations entered into our challenge this fortnight - take a look at what you could win (oooh now that made me think of Jim Bowen on Bullseye)!!!  You have a fortnight to enter so come on!!

Pop over to the OSAAT challenge blog (hereand check out the cards made by my teamies, I'm sure they will inspire you.
