Good afternoon. Thank you for calling by. Also thank you for you comments on my centre piece again. Ang ( Mrs Duck ) was saying I would have to tell you what I was hoping to be putting in the little pots this year, answer nothing!! I am not doing the Christmas Meal this year. It's Gillian and Andrews first Christmas together and from what I can understand they want to hold it at theirs for the family. So Gillian will choose her own table decorations. Me I am very happy to let them do this.
My card is for a couple who are both in to crafts, so I thought I'd like to do a different from my normal new home card. I usually use LOTV images, I have made a these in the past for this couple as they have had a few moves while at university. This is their now settled home. They have both secured very good jobs in big law firms and now they have found their new home all in the 5 months since finishing their degrees, we are so pleased for them both.
As I said different. Yes I have used my much loved Striplet die. Sorry I have been using this die a lot, and more so this last few days. It makes a card and along with my Asters, again I love making and using these. I cut these out of scraps along with leaves and have them in a box ready to use when needed. So a quick card to put together. I used buttons for the centres of the asters mainly for the colour, plus I have so many of these to use up.
This is an 8x8 card

Off to meet up with Tammy for a coffee. She is going to giving me a couple of loads of washing, two weeks away, lots of washing so I will help her out. I did all her bedding while they were away, she stripped and remade their beds on the day they were going I collected it and have washed it, she has the ironing of it to do, but just greatfull to have it washed so I will give her that back. ( I suppose that's what being and mum is all about ). She will be over on Tuesday helping me give the house a good clean. I find pulling out everything to much now. Charlie would help do it but he always seems to find something else to do when I need his help. So it's a fair exchange.
Enjoy your weekend.
