Hi everyone, another busy day, got up about 8 a.m. and then drove over to pick up my son and his fiance and then drove them into town so they could go in a small bus with friends to the Barossa Valley on a winery tour. It is one of the girls birthdays soon and as it is close to Christmas people will be away etc so she decided to have her celebration early and chose the wine tour. I went the long way home as there was road works the other way. When I got home I had to make chocolate cheesecake slice to take to a craft group Christmas party so that took a while to mix and then cook. Also made some sandwiches because I'm supposed to eat multigrain bread. We had a good time. We helped Judy with some of her craft she makes for the Cancer Foundation. One of the things we did was wrap single toilet rolls with Christmas paper and then entirely in cellophane and attach a tag with this saying on it:
Money is scarce, times are hard,
So I'm giving you this instead of a card,
Christmas cards are expensive it's true,
But this will be handy for you in the loo!!!!!
I left earlier than usual because my son and DIL were bringing the two girls down for me to look after - they are also staying overnight, so we watched "Elf" on tv and had pizza. They are both tucked up and asleep and my hubby has just come home from his interstate mercy mission! It turned out the man felt like he was going to black out while driving the truck. He stopped and they had a district nurse from one of the towns come out to him and they discovered his sugar levels were really high, so looks like he has diabetes and didn't know about it. She gave him some medication and told him he shouldn't be driving and that's why they had to go and get him and the truck. So they must have done a lot of driving to get back tonight.
Well onto my card,
I've made a top fold card with a small step at the front. Sorry I have had to scan it so you don't really get a proper look at the card!
The cardbase is a bright green from stash and I've used a sheet of DP from a freebie pack by My Mind's Eye called Snowed In - Winter Papers, Christmas designs. I stamped the image and sentiment with SU Basic Grey onto white card and used my Copic Markers to colour the image, Red ink for the sentiment. Both the image and sentiment came from a set by Adam Pescott. I used a circle punch and also a scallop punch for the sentiment and added some bling. I put some glitter on the hat and snow.
I would like to enter this into The Poodles Parlour Challenge - Christmas
and also into Fairy tale Challenge #29 - Christmas
