Hi all my crafty friends,
Where has the sun gone, quite dull here, but still very close,
because the suns not shining, I have managed to get all my holiday ironing done,
it has been far to hot to do any the last few days ( well that's my excuse )

One new card today, a bit over the top with gems and pearls, but the lady who it is
for, loves her bling.
The sentiment does not come up well on the photo, it says,
Wishing you a very happy retirement,
now we will have plenty of time for a gossip over the wall.
(She is a neighbour)
Hope you like this card.   Janet

I will be entering this card into the following challenges,

wild Orchid Challenge   Bingo, my 3 choices are Wings, Pink and Pearls/Bling.

Lili Little Fairies Challenge   Anything but a square

Moving along with the times  Celebrate Challenge, but not a birthday project

Pink and Green

Hi all,
Hope you are still enjoying the gorgeous weather.
I started the week as I mean to go on, cleaned all windows inside,
and as all the front windows have secondary double glazing, ( live in conservation area, hence
no double glazed windows allowed) so that means 3 sides per window!!, so that will have to do
for another 6mths.
This afternoon I had my time crafting, but only made one card.
Hope you like it and would appreciate any comments left.

Christmas Cheer

Hi All
At last I have managed to make a card, mind you,
my OH was putting me more shelves up, so had to work round him.
and do you know what he said, I should STOP BUYING CRAFTY things
as there was no room to put anything else, and he was serious!
I have  to use an old camera now as I used to use a brill camera
that took videos and snaps underwater, (OH used this snorkeling )
but, it seems because I kept opening & shutting  it to take the SD card out,
it now lets water in so he was not pleased, all holiday photos were lost.
Anyway I digress it seems odd to make a Christmas card, when it is 29` outside,
Hope you like my offering and I would appreciate and comments left you yourselves.

I will enter this card into the following challenges
