"Pink Christmas"

Hello there Blog Friends, thank you for popping by to see what has been going on in my little corner of Blogland.
It is not easy at this time of year to get round everyone when we are all so busy.  If I miss anyone out please forgive me.   You are so talented and full of inspiration, without you this Blogging lark would not be so much fun.  Thank you for all your lovely comments it makes this all this more worth while.
 Met up with Hazel today at the Maggies Centre, Dundee we were handing over another donation.  We then popped over the road to the Chemo Unit with a donation for them.  That`s us finished Fundraising for this year we will see what next year brings and who we will be supporting.  There is always something or someone needing a little help.

My project for today is a "PINK" version of Christmas Tree decorations I make and give to friends.  I think everyone has one now, but will make a few more just in case.  
I have made this one "Pink" I am entering it into  

The whole thing is made using Spellbinder Lace Doily Motif Dies
2 Large, 2 next size down, 1 need this combination for both sides
There is an empty ribbon spool for narrow ribbon in the centre
Long length of Ribbon round the spool centre tied to form the loop to hang on your tree or window
They look pretty on the window when the sun shines on them and you get the reflection 
Pearl for the centre

My friend Elaine asks me to make her one every year, I make and hang a Little Tag with the date on it
I try to make them as different as possible using different dies, I am running out of ideas.  I have made quite a few for her.  She has a big house and puts up lots of trees.   They are not all hung one the one tree.

That`s it for today, will be back soon
Thank you for calling by, I really appreciate it

    Congratulations on your fund raising.

    When I sell my cards I buy baby yarn and in the evenings while watching TV with my westie, beni, I knit beanie hats for the premature baby unit at a local hospital, very rewarding.
