Good morning, well I don't know what it's like with you, but we have a lovely bright sunny but frosty start.  Trouble with these kind of morning it comes with problems for drivers.  Oh yes I was lucky car did do a little slip slide when we were going to school but we were ok - heart did go a little, but after I put the dogs back into the house and was heading home I had to stop and lend my phone to a gentleman who wasn't so lucky he wrote his car off at the little bridge just passed the farm track. Now  this little bridge it is little as it goes over a burn but every year some poor soul ends up taking it out with their car.  Fife council have been caught out once again with not getting the grit down.  Any way the said gentleman was shaken but ok, and that's my good deed done for today.

Now today's card is one I made for Beth's friend as title says, and it's made using bits that I won in the candy from Rachel ( so thank you Rachel. Beth had her eye on these bits from when I received the candy and asked if I would help her make a card, as it turned out I ended up doing it due to lack of time. Beth is really pleased with it and now she is thinking who else is having a birthday so that we can make another one.

Just a very simple card but that's what I like about it. I do love the Me to You Bear.
No die cutting to be done with this card.  Going to be playing with some new dies well I will rephrase that. Some more dies that Patricia has let me borrow, my!!! that sister of mine has a small fortune in dies, but as she says to that  " never " I bet her John doesn't know how many she has, but I am thankful for the borrow. I will see what ones I like then buy. 
Now keep warm and dry and when you think it's cold stop and think of those in America with up to -51 temps. The thought is enough and I am sure we will get a bit of it here but do hope it is no more than single figures if it does. 
Thank you once again for calling in, and if you have a blog do leave a comment so I can have at look at our makes, I do love seeing what others do.

  15. Hi Hazel
    You just gotta love Tatty Ted. I had these decoupage sheets but mine had to all be cut by hand. . . . . .didn't buy that type again lol !
    How fab that you can dip into Patricia's Die Library. Just make sure you don't get any late fees!
    Mr Duck should be in your neck of the woods about now as he's near Dunfermline today.
    Have a good one chuck.
