Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
A bit of a different 'Sunday' blog post for us, I forgot to remind you all to send me your 'Favourite' card photo's, I only got Janet's so I decided to do our Saturday post on a Sunday and will do the 'Favourite' post next Sunday.
So the first card (above) is the lovely Christmas card that I received from Danielle, I love the embossing folder that she has used, adding the forest themed background paper was a really brilliant idea, the gold mirror card gives a real touch of luxury. I absolutely loved the car thanks so much Danielle xxx
Michele has shared her Crafty Christmas gifts with us, I love those 'Corinne Lapierre' animals, she seems such a lovely lady too. You can't go wrong with Sue Wilson Dies, I love the font of those die sets Michele, such a versatile set of dies there, you will get lots of use out of those and the ink pads will be really useful with your Card-io stamps.
Here is Michele's Description:
''My crafty Christmas presents. Felt & book from my boss. Dies from my Dad (he had help) & ink pads from crazy friend. ''
Thanks for sharing your Gifts with us Michele, I look forward to seeing what you make with them xxx
"Just thought I’d send you these photos of what the Hertford Secret Society of Crafters have done this year raising money for Herts Young Homeless It is an advent tree A door a day is opened to reveal what’s inside"
The other photo's are of Karen's Christmas gifts, The Craft bag, which is perfect for Karen's Knitting and Crocheting was from Charlotte....
"The bag is difficult to photograph You can turn it “inside out and have knitting needles etc on show or zip it the other way around and use"
That lovely Knitting patterns for Toddlers book was also from Charlotte, I bet there are so lovely patterns in there. I can't wait to see your amazing Jumpers my lovely xxx
The third photo is of a brilliant matching Stamp and Die set designed by Julie Hickey, Karen said that they were a great deal, 'so why not' !! I totally agree Karen, I think that that is a great set, really versatile, I love Julie's new designs.
Thank you so much Karen for sharing all of your lovely craft things with us XXX
Our meal at Becca's place on Friday night was AMAZING, I had steak from the standard menu, which was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth, Lucy had a freshly 'Handmade' Pizza that was delicious and huge, she bought half of it home in a box, Sophie had Fish and Chips, the fish was enormous and cooked beautifully with light, crispy batter and mushy peas! Paul and his parents all had Pollock with Lyonnaise Potatoes with Samphire and a Caper Berry Beurre Blanc, needless to say there wasn't a scrap left on any of their plates, they all said how amazing it was. We forced ourselves to try dessert I had a Amaretto Crème Brulee with an Almond Shortbread that just melted in your mouth, Paul's mum had the same, Paul's dad had the Sticky Toffee pudding which he thoroughly enjoyed, Paul had a dark chocolate tart with an Orange Sorbet which was also incredibly delicious and the girls had icecream.
We had an amazing evening, the restaurant was really buzzing, the whole place has a lovely atmosphere, we can't wait to go again.
I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
