Warm Christmas Wishes from Maria xx
Who would think that this time last week we were all so excited to be meeting each other?! How do these weeks pass so fast? I think I read that it seven weeks to Christmas!
This weeks Festive Friday treat has been designed by Maria, I think it is a lovely card, perfect for people that don't celebrate 'Christmas' but you still want to send a card for the 'Holiday Season'.
I love the stamp, it's a Marianne design Clear Stamp, Maria you have coloured the image amazingly,
capturing both the movement of the skater and the freezing cold weather, that takes some skill Maria!
Your matting and layering frames the image perfectly and the buttons add just enough embellishment without going over the top! Thank you Maria for sharing your card with us today xxxx
Could I please ask you all to rummage around for more images for mixed craft Saturday, I know you are probably sick of me asking, if you have no more we can change Saturday to a different theme, I am open to your suggestions!
Lynda and the rest of you ladies going to the NEC this weekend, I hope you all have a fab time, don't go spending too much! Make sure you wear comfy shoes though and get your seat for lunch early, the last time we went there were no tables and chairs for you to sit at to eat your own lunch, we ended perching on a window sill In the hallway outside. My other piece of advice or observation is that if you can wait until after about 3pm to go and see demo's on stands, the place really seems to empty out at about that time, I am guessing coach trips or something, but after then you can walk right up and shop with ease. I will admit, as hectic as it is a tiny part of me still wishes I was going.
I am looking forward to this weekend very much, I feel I haven't seen Paul properly since last Thursday, it's been a really long week, he has 5 days off now, which sounds like heaven!
I think that we will be hearing Fireworks all weekend, it is the big display on the RAF camp tonight, all of the other displays seem to be Saturday, but I am sure we will be hearing them for the next week or two, I just don't understand why the have to be so loud, the best part of fireworks is surely their
prettiness, now the earth shattering bang, I kid you not our windows were rattling tonight with some of the explosions and that's just folk having them in their gardens!
Anyway, soap box is stowed, feel free to take your turn!
Have a great day,
Love and Hugs
