Yesterday we woke to foggy and miserable and today could NOT be more different, woke up to bright sunshine and, as I write this, the sun is so bright and warm on one side that I may have to get up and close the blind a little!!!!!!!!!! One of my fellow crafting buds reckons I have stolen the sun today as she has the fog/mist that we had yesterday! SORRY Wynneth if you are reading this, I'll send it down as soon as I'm done enjoying it!

Morning - here we are again hump day Wednesday
I cannot believe where the time goes . . . .
Not much planned for today, which usually means crafting and tidying, though I do have dull (DULL DULL) stuff to do in the shape of ironing and grocery shopping.
Last evening, whilst hubby was out, I nipped down to have a chat over a cuppa with surrogate daughter and hubby for an hour. Always good to catch up with "family". It did mean that I didn't get much crafting done after yesterdays post just these two . . . using two more of the toppers I made whilst at craft club. It's OK - there's only one more left now! I am loving both the orange and the purple colourway. The purple mottled backing paper was a Christmas gift from a crafting buddy (in pad form) so thank you Sheila. The orange themed card uses two toned pieces of coredinations so I've run the lighter one through a snowflake embossing folder and then sanded the embossed image. On both pieces I've distressed the edges to expose the core. I love both of the stamps I've used on these two and cannot believe that I had not used the pine bough until last year (although I've probably owned it for a couple of years) and the cone flower was inked for the first time at craft club too - wicked lazy of me eh? Obviously the orange one is a Christmas card but the coneflower could be for almost any occasion masculine or feminine and, with the black, even a sympathy card with the right words.
On a brighter note - enjoy the sunshine if you are lucky enough to have it like me, and I'll probably catch you later once I've had a chance to craft some more.
