Gymnastic Prowess

It's quiet here, both hubby and son are in the land of nod and I'm just wrapping up the day with a quick read of my e-mails and writing this post. After a fine day, it has decided to rain a little bit. I just let the dogs out and they were soon scratching on the door to be let back in.
I did a bit of searching on e-bay this morning looking for an embossing folder with little sail boats on. My friend and I were sure we had seen them at the craft shop we normally go to but the young lass said they had never had them. She is not always very helpful. I remembered seeing them there and another friend had bought one!!! Anyway, I found it and the seller had more than one so managed to get one for my friend as well.
I finished up a couple of jobs here at home and then headed over to visit Mum. We popped down to the shop to look for a top for her and to have lunch as well. I saw some nice costume bling but was nearly $100 so gave it a miss. I got back home mid afternoon and caught a show called Scrap TV. It was interesting to watch and they made a wedding invitation, very rustic, I thought my daughter might like it, so might make up a mock one to show her when she comes home in a few weeks.
Well onto my card,
