Well I started to do a post yesterday morning, but ran out of time, had Beth to pick up at 12 o'clock, and had bits to do before hand. Any way I will leave the " oldie" till the new year that I was putting up.
Today is husband Charlies birthday. Now he is very lucky he has made it to today, seeing how I had my pile of cards on the side board ready to take to the post office so they could be stamped accordingly to what was needed. I thought I was going mad ( well iam half way there as it is) because I couldn't find the pile, looked in the spare room and the car, now the amount of stuff that's in there belonging to the girls well it was a job and a half. No they weren't there so asked Charlie had he seen what I had done with them answer "oh I have posted them". How did you manage that as the villiage post office isn't open and you didn't have a car. Oh I had stamps here so I just stamped them and popped them in the box Why!!! Yes they should have had more postage on them. ahhhh. Why oh why does he not get it that the postal service has changed??? So what folk thought was thunder over head in Springfield was me exploding with temper.
Any way it's done now can't change it, but do you think he will learn - NO, he's a man.
So here is the card I made for him, not a lot of time spent on it. I knew what image and papers I would use, it's very plain and simple.
Thank you all for your comments on my wrapped gifts, I am a bit sick of seeing my roll of cellophane now. I have been doing various gifts up, haven't photographed them as a lot are what I have done like it the passed. I have got to say my gift bags have been a great hit this year and I have made gift wallets. Like these
Very, very simple an A 4 piece of card with a little bit cut off the length, scored on my board, corners rounded and YES a striplet die cut and ribbon to tie. This one contains a voucher for a foot treatment, oldest daughter is a podiatrist and she is often asked for a voucher and of course it was a call to Mum to see what I could do to make it into a lovely gift.
Off now to get little grandson, here's coming for a sleepover but coming early as Daddy and Mummy are going to the football this afternoon as my big grandson is Mascot at the Dumferline match.
So little one and I will bake today and tomorrow things for Boxing Day when we are all together as a family.
Take care if you are out and about in this frosty weather.
