I had a great morning yesterday with crafty friends at a Xmas card making get together.  It’s a plan of Tracy’s so that we get ahead of the game for this Christmas.  The plan is we will have plenty of cards made well before Christmas rather than rushing nearer the time (what a good idea).  Although I didn’t finish the cards yesterday I have 4 toppers ready to make cards with :) .

Yesterday Oliver my 11 month old grandson came to visit with his Dad.  It was really lovely to have some quality time with him.  Cameron had gone to the pictures with Nicola and Emily had gone to see Great Auntie Jo.



I made this before Christmas for a class to show the versatility of a stamps set.  I rather like the rustic look I created with this one!!

Items used:

Stamp set: Fun and fast notes & Vintage Vogue
Early espresso, real red and black ink pads
Neutrals ivory and early espresso card
Linen thread
Crystal effects.


I’m feeling lousy today though, sore throat headache and temperature  :( Last night I fell asleep on the settee for most of the evening went to bed and slept all night.  Not done much today either just layer on the settee & watched the TV.  I had so much planned for to day too.

Hoping I feel better tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by and having a look at my cards & please leave a comment.  Pop back anytime soon.

Lesley - did you say 'christmas' ! Perish the thought lol. I thought the village group in Scotland were organised 2 weeks ago with their posters requesting people to knit Easter chicks! ( I knitted 6 for them).
Hope you are feeling better soon, I was in bed by 10 both Friday and Saturday nights lol must be my age x
