Hello Blog friends, followers plus anyone who happens to land here by "clicking" from other Blogs. I love to trawl and "click" to see what others do. It is amazing which person/country you can visit and guess what ..... does not cost you a single penny!!!
I have had visits from new people this week these are ones I have managed to visit they have some great work to look at. Joe ... http://mycraftingcorner-jo.blogspot.co.uk/

Some who have visited and left lovely comments don`t have a Blog, thank you anyway I really love to have you visit.
For all my new friends/followers I would like to point out that although we call home "The Ranch" we don`t have horses or any other animals. It is really just a house in the country surrounded by fields. We are a very small close "family unit" we have one son also John, his wife Audrey and the boys Thomas 10 Robert 7. They live approx 7 miles along the road in a very similar situation, they call their house "The Homestead" When we arrange outings we use these terms as to where we will start off from or where we end up. Some times it is "The Ranch" others it`s "The Homestead" Might sound complicated but it works for us.
I have been working on bits for Tuesday`s Card Class. We had a disaster trying to Die Cut things at the class last time. For this week they have all been done by me, here at the house. Will not go down that road again. I have decided that even though Elaine`s Dies were not cutting properly some of it was down to the Card Stock she was using. I feel Dies are being churned out so fast, by the time the machine gets to the end of a run the cutting on the Dies is just not quite as sharp as the ones from the start.
Here are a few more Little Christmas Cards I have been making. These are all for my box, its coming along nicely. I really only have the "specials" and a few for my neighbours still to make. They all still have to get their inserts put in. That a job for a rainy day me thinks!!!!
Penny Black Stamp for the forest scene
The Robin is from one of the new LOTV Chrsitmas Art Pads
I was a wee bit disappointed in these LOTV are promoting them as XL images ..... what they do not tell you is that there are 2 images per page. The pages are the same size as the old pads. The old pads have 1 image with lots of white surrounding it which means they are great to Die Cut.
Oh! Patricia enough moaning.......LOL!!!
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by, for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate them
Till Next time
