Good Morning Ladies,
First of all I would like to wish our Janet a very Happy Birthday, Thank you for all you do to keep our 'cafe' running smoothly. XXX
Goodness me it's cold, yesterday I have the coal fire on all day and I even lit the Aga,
Our kitchen is really big with high ceiling it has no radiators either, so it's really cold.
The bonus of having it in to hear the kitchen was that I could cook tea on it too, it was lovely to cook on plus you have the oven already heated up too, so I could just pop the bread in To go with dinner without preheating the oven. It made quite a difference to the heat in the kitchen.
Sue came over yesterday, she bought a snow blizzard with her, luckily it didn't settle, otherwise she would have had to go straight back, we are in a very rural area so if we get a good amount of snow we may have problems.
We got to work and got the doors fixed the doors to me craft unit, Paul has it in position now which made it easier. The only problem is now there are no more instructions and I still have 4-5 boxes of bits to add to it! I am going to call them tomorrow to give them my opinion! I guess they want you to pay the £200 (it's gone up £50 in 3 weeks) to have them fix it together.
Today's card was made by Lynda, she used a Free magazine die to create this gorgeous card, die cutting it twice and layering over a piece of Clarity Northern Lights patterned paper, it works so well, I do love that background. The die looks like an expensive detailed die, it's so pretty.
Lynda has embellished the cards with some Sue Wilson Butterflies, that have been die cut in a complimentary colour.
A truly stunning card Lynda, thank you so much for making it for me to share my lovely XXX
Weather permitting I am hoping to see Pat today, I don't want her driving out here if it's icy though. We are very much out in the sticks here with deep ditches and the snow will cover some huge pot holes. I have made some Leek and Potato Soup just in case though!
I am off to start emptying my boxes of craft stuff into the storage boxes for the unit, I am hoping my new stamps will be arriving in a day or so.
Have a lovely day whatever you are doing, stay warm and safe.
Lynda I hope your new Antibiotics work quickly XXX
Love and hugs to all,
