Hello Blog friends, how are you all?? ... Well, I certainly hope so, if not here are a few (((Hugs))) to help.
Thank you for coming to visit me. I have to apologise for not commenting on some of your Blogs. I did try to get round most of you but time just kept running out.
What a week last week was, I barley had time to draw breath some days. Thank goodness it is over.
You know something??? I really do not think this week is going to be much better.........we will see!!
My car needed new front Brake Pads and Disks to pass its MOT other than that it passed thank goodness. Now going like a dream after its service, I am happy it did not cost me too much. Oh! how I need my wee car.
Thomas and I are off for a few days to Ballywater in Northern Ireland a week on Tuesday. We are visiting my friend Oriel and her husband John`s Dairy Farm. Flying over, travelling "light" just cabin bags. I was trying to think of what to take as a wee gift. I always send flowers once I get back home but also like to have something to give when I get there.
I got a "handmade" card from Oriel for my birthday. It was made by one of the ladies that goes to their church. It was really more "homemade" rather than "handmade", had a thought and decided I would make 12 cards for all occasions, also make a box for them as my gift.
Here are the first 3
I have kept them all approx 4 x 6
Folded A4 card stock then cut that in half
I have made these all white on white that could be used for anything
As you can see I have used some Dies and embossing folders
I have kept them mostly flattish so that they go in envelopes for posting
I have done all the rest, I will show you these during the week
It will give me something to post while I try to find time to draw breath!!!!
Thought you might like to know that the school have made £2,400 from their Charity Shop in Coupar Angus
There are 24 bags of clothes that they will take to one of these "cash for clothes" places
They also have a few donations to come in from people who got things before the shop actually opened
Not a bad "haul" from a load of cast off clothes, books, toys, games and other peoples general junk!!!!!
That`s it for today
Thank you for taking time to pop in I really appreciate it
Till next time
