A Bear named Theodore

Hi again, how has your day been?  I went out with a friend to drop her daughter to the airport and then onto a craft store that was having a 40% sale on their Christmas stamps and 20% off in the rest of the store. She runs the shop as part of the family furniture store and also runs classes. I've never been to any of the classes but every now and again she sells off some of the stamps she uses for them, so picked up a couple really cheap and also a few Marianne Dies (new ones) for half price. I didn't buy any of the Christmas stamps as they didn't really appeal that much. Lunch out at a bakery and then back home. It's been several degrees cooler today but it is set to soar again tomorrow.
The little place Mum and I stayed at last April in Tasmania has bush fires raging around it, I hope it  survives. The people that own it live at the top of the hill behind it and are away overseas at present. It wouldn't be very nice if they lost either of their properties. It's school holidays and there are a lot of tourists over there at the moment that are having to be pulled out of areas and rehoused back in Hobart.  Hope they can get it all under control soon as large areas of native bushland are being destroyed as well as some peoples' properties.
Made a bit of time late afternoon to make my card up as we went down to the beach and had a barbeque with some of our children and partners. We decided to make it 7:30 p.m. but it ended up quite cold before we came home. A bit different to last night!!!
So here is my card......
