Looks like winter has arrived here in the North East of Scotland. This morning we wakened to a thick white Frost, blood red sky filled with hundreds of Geese making an almighty racket. Will have to look out the UGGS, get my NEST ready for "hibernation" ....... I am serious I don`t do "winter" However I will wait till after next week when Kate (cullisocks) Hazel and I fly down to Birmingham for NEC. We are meeting up with Ang (Mrs Duck) and Christine (Christine's cards & Gifts) for our dinner in the evening. Nothing fancy just the Harvester near the Airport Travelodge where we will be staying. We went there last year, got a corner to ourselves. lots to eat, loads of laughter and plenty noise. Just hope they don`t realise its "US" again.... they might say they are fully booked ..... LOL!!!
Yesterday was spent preparing for next weeks card class. I had to prepare 12 kits for this card:-
I cut out all the Striplets. Last time we said they would do all the Die Cutting themselves we had great problems both with the Dies and the Machines. . However this Sue Wilson Die is a dream to cut out. I also cut all the Poinsettias.
All done and dusted and the floor cleared of all the "BITS"
Base card is approx 8x8 PMD Hammered card
I use A3 so manage to get most layers cut out quite economically. I give them all the usable bits away with them. There is usually enough to make a small card.
Green and Red card I got at the Papeterie in Aberdeen
Merry Christmas Stamp a freebie in a Magazine
Pearls from my stash
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
