Hello and welcome, hope you are all well and enjoying this wonderful weather.
We have had a beautiful day, bit windy but wall to wall sunshine all day.....Bliss!!!
Was up at the crack of dawn, oh! my! the mornings are so much darker, Autumn is slowly creeping in.
Got all yesterdays washing ironed and put away.
I was along at the Tearoom for 9.30am to get set up for the Card Class at 10am. My ladies made 3 Christmas Cards, all went away very happy. They said what they would never have thought of doing what we did. They did the cards I posted a couple of weeks ago.........The Candelabra, the Door Wreath plus one very similar to what Sue Wilson (particarft.blogspot.com) had on her Blog this morning. I had done mine in purples, the ladies chose to do their poinsettias in red. I think purple was a bit too modern for some of them. I don`t have a photo of mine at the moment, left the card along in the workshop at the Tearoom.
I was looking for a stamp the other day, I came across a sheet of Sheena Douglas stamps that I had never opened. I spotted this stamp and right away the image of the ornament came into my head.
Robert keeps looking at this and saying "that man and lady have no clothes on). They do actually, I have pointed it out to him but he always looks at me as though I am not telling the truth.

Heather (Heathers Happenings) mentioned we do not use our old Dies enough. We always go for all the newer ones in our collections
Today I went right back to basics and used some of the very first Dies I ever bought. Tomorrow I hope do do similar. I have decided to try and use as many old ones as possible in the next few days.
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for popping into visit today I really appreciate it
Till next time
