Just a note...

to say I may be missing in action for a week or so as I am off to visit my lovely Mum and daughter.

I booked the flight ages ago...and then saw on the news today that there are strikes proposed for the day of my flight so who knows when I will arrive in Cornwall....could be an interesting day. I am determined to be relaxed...I shall make sure I have a really interesting book to read...lots of chocolate and I should be fine...might even pop in a Sudoku or two in case I get really bored. Ha ha can you tell I was a Girl Guide...Be prepared is still my motto.

I had my last Card Class today before Christmas and this photo shows the girls efforts...they are doing so well and seem to enjoy it...even when I nag them!!

I was amazed this week to get Top 3 at Digi Doodle Shop's Best and a Top 5 at Meljen's Designs. Thank you girls...the encouragement is really appreciated.

Thank you for become a follower if you like what you see....and have a really special week.

I keep forgetting

to take a photo of cards I have made for orders. So I haven't any photos of last weeks work.

Mind you I have been poorly sick this last week. I had a cold that completely floored me. Thankfully I am feeling much better now and am back to crafting.

As some of you know I am involved in running a centre for the homeless and vulnerable here in Torrevieja called Reachout. We have had some great publicity and here is the link to one of the articles. It is a place of heartbreaking stories but a place of wonderful miracles as well.

This was a quick card to make although it was a challenge for me to make a Christmas card in these colours of orange and/or brown....but I think it works.

Card Supplies:
Card Blank & Backing paper-Stash.
Image-Meljen's Design & ProMarkers.
Halfpearls- Papercellar.
Snowflakes- Woodware punches.
Stars- Artwork.
Embossed greeting- See D's stamp,Tsukineko Embossing pad, Stamp 'n' Stuff embossing powder White opaque.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:
Digi Doodle Shops Best. #82 Sketch.
Meljens Designs #84 Orange and/ or Brown.
Stamping Sisters in Christ #115 Gratitude.
Wags 'n' Whiskers #67 Christmas.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful week.
