"For Daddy"

Hello Blog friends, I know I say this almost every day but I really do appreciate you calling by my corner of Blogland.   Also when you leave all those lovely comments it makes this Blogging all the more worth while.
I think I have recovered a little from Sunday.   Hazel and I have decided that we are both getting to old for the standing around.  We said at the end of last year we were not doing any more Craft Fairs.  When Hazel was at home during her treatments that`s when we began making the Pendants.  We were asked by quite a few people if they could buy them...........well that started the ball rolling again.  We sold lots at the Chemo Unit and at Maggies.  When we were at Maggies one day they told us they were doing a Christmas Craft Fair and asked if we would like a table.  We said yes, we were then asked by others that we had done Fairs with before would we like tables ...........if you do one you might as well do them all.  We have learnt this time, we will just say NO!! when asked in future.  We will still sell our pendants, and other bits a pieces we make.  We have a few people who have us along to their house, they invite a few friends in.  On the lines of Party Plan but we are not looking for future bookings.  If we get them we take them on the understanding that it is a simple get together with just a cup of tea or coffee.

My fist Christmas Card for this year, I have not started on any for myself yet.
This was an order from a girl, for her two boys to give to their Daddy at Christmas.
I made a card using this image a few years ago.  I made the card for my Grandsons to give to their Mummy and Daddy.  The sentiment was to Mummy and Daddy from your Little Angels, they are always Little Angels when they are sleeping......!!!

Base Card red card from stock 5 x 7 approx
Silver and dark green card for matting
Image from another old CD I found on that last rummage.
It was part of a Christmas Box Set from C&C quite some years ago
Sentiment done on computer, mounted onto silver and red card
Attached with Jump Rings

That`s it for today 
Thank you for calling by I really do love to have you visit.

Have to say a Big thank you to Sharon for my Liebster Award
