How many shopping days until Chritmas......?

Good evening crafters! Card No. 2 made without a Cuttlebug.  I'm getting the hang of this!  I thought I was colouring this poinsettia with a red Tombo pen.  Looks can be deceiving, as you can see.  But I liked it in this colour so carried on.  The stamp is an old PSX one - an old one of Sharon's - since she has given up crafting.  So Kim Reygate - how many Christmas cards have you made now?
I have been out to a Medieaval 'Herald of Spring' day at Bourne Hall in Ewell, Surrey.  There were craft stalls, local historians, Morris dancers, a brass band, a falconry exhibition, flower arrangements for sale and countless other things.  I looked in the local museum too and was surprised to see a glass cabinet containing many things which I still own!  I suddenly felt very old.  There were Beatles L.P.s and a little game called Tell Me, which I played with my siblings as a youngster.
I may be looking after a little dog for three weeks.  Stanley.  His owner died yesterday and he is to be shipped out to the USA.  We are going to meet him tonight and to see if he and my Taffy get on.  What with dog walking, dog sitting and my new job about to start - I'll wish I was retired again.


  1. That's a restrained bit if bling on that card.

    I have conjured up a vision of Stanley hope to see a picture of him if he gets on with Taffy.

  2. Then I shall go back and bling some more!!

    Stanley's arriving later today. He's some sort of terrier. Photos soon on Taffy's blog.

  3. Well Mrs Till I hate to disappoint you but 29 Christmas cards made so far this year, how sad am I????
    Nice card, don't go too mad with more bling.
    Love Kimx

  4. I resisted the bling and it remains ASOS.
    Gilly x

  5. I'm glad you resisted. I had a recount, make that 35 lol.
