Welcome, a beautiful spring day today - I hope it lasts for the weekend! Managed to get my car washed this morning so hopefully it will stay sparkly clean for a few days. Quite a chatty group at craft today  - although not much crafting - the girls are all into Twisted Text 2 on the iPad's and phones so that took up quite a bit of time!! Joyce and I plodded on and I made a card for this weeks Annabelle Blog Challenge. I had to leave early as I had to have a MRI - not the most pleasant of experiences and my back and neck were spasming from the arthritis the whole time -  I looked a wreck by the time they finished. Tonight I have to drive up to Mt Barker to pick up our dog Trevor, Emma is going to Melbourne for the holidays so her flat mate is bringing him back with her and then I have to pick John up from the airport as he has been away in Brisbane since Monday - no rest for the wicked!


Red & White card from stash

Stamp freebie called Tis the Season from Quick Cards

Ribbon and gold decals from stash

Gelly Pens and SU Real Red for colouring

I stamped the image onto the white card and coloured it, then re-stamped, coloured and cut out the letters NOEL and the Bow and 3d them to the base card, I used double 3d dots for the bow to give it extra height.

Thinking of You

Hi and welcome to new follower Gay from the UK, although quite cool today the sun was out so that's a blessing! I started the day going to the specialist - I had the first appointment and he was still 35 mins late, when I told his secretary I had other things on she just said well he's always running late so you shouldn't plan anything else! Not good enough!  I had to pick John up and run him back to work, then I went shopping, got the towels washed and dried, made spag bog and minestrone soup for the weekend and then settled down for an afternoon of craft with the girls. Sandy showed me a new game for the ipad called Twisted Text - I think I'm getting hooked! I also made a card for this weeks Less is More Challenge.

With Love

Hi, thanks for dropping by, after two glorious days on the weekend - yes the weather gods heard our calls for decent weather, we are back to foul weather again, very windy and lots of rain. Emma and her friend drove up from Mount Gambier last night and could barely see in some parts - thankfully they arrived home safely. We have had good news today - Emma had a job interview in Adelaide this morning and has been offered a year's contract in a school near our home, which she has accepted so no more 5 hour trips home!

Just the three of us at craft today, but as usual we chatted and crafted and had yummy cookies for afternoon tea!

I made this card for this weeks Less is More Week 83 Colour Challenge:
