It's been a couple of weeks or three since I last posted to my blog. The Boss and I offered to 'dog sit' our friends Golden Retriever whilst they spent 3 weeks in China. To lessen the stress on the dog we agreed to stay at their place for the duration, which has worked quite well except that I didn't bother to take any craft bits with me. We've spent lots of time walking the beach, enjoying the late winter weather here, it's been really lovely.
Last weekend we spent a day in our house, Walshie took the dog out for a couple of hours so I could sit and play....... It was nice to make a card and guess what.....It's my first Christmas card this year. Yeah I know, but September tomorrow.....four months to go!!!!!
I hope you can just see the sparkle from Wink Of Stella added to the flower and holly.
Three different dies where used to cut the Wreath, Holly and Poinsettia with a corner die cut in red card stock.
To finish off some pretty red Sprinkles from Sprinkleberry.
Now I'm interested to know what people think about changing Blog names against starting out fresh!
Things have changed so much here since Ian retired. We spend much more time together which means I'm not posting to my blog as often as I used to in the early days.
I must admit when we moved house (the second time) I was horrified at how much stuff I'd accumulated. I gave away heaps and vowed to think before I bought in future. As for my cards, I had quite a few boxes, more than I would use... so they went to Lifeline. Since moving I don't think I've bought one new stamp! I'll always make cards, just not so many :).
My Blog name seems all wrong now..........my interests are slightly different. I've been doing a bit more sewing and cardmakers don't really want to see that!
My Blog followers number 202 but I think it's probably more like 10.......so why not start again!
Wha do you think? Has anyone done this?
