Hello friends!.....can't believe it is Tuesday already! that's mainly due to the fact that hubby had along weekend so I am a day out now...4 short days instead of 5 to get everything done!
So how are we all? good I hope..... and to all my cyber friends over the pond...I hope you have recovered from a wonderful Thanksgiving?
Christmas is fast approaching now...the advent candle is in place....I did suggest burning it early and then telling everyone they had missed Christmas dinner, but hubby said no! I,m never done any earlier for Christmas..are you?.....because the more time free, I find something else to squeeze into the preparations...so this year it's take it steady and don't go overboard.
Just to fool you all while talking about Christmas..here is an Anniversary card!!
The die is an Intricut die from Hobbycraft...beautiful die and I re cut the birds in blue and overlaid them so they would stand out. The tiny heart is not part of the die, I just popped it there. I think the sentiment is Uniko (lost the piece of paper with all my details on...sorry). I put tiny pearls on the leaves where they are embossed using.........(brain whirring here )...oh I know....Viva pearl pen.
The rest speaks for itself.
Black Friday...I had a birthday! so it wasn't black Friday for me at all!! Hubby and I went to Burton Agnes Hall to see the hall all decorated by the owners ans and staff for Christmas. It was fantastic...such a lot of hard work. It was all done with using as much natural stuff from the estate as possible and a lot of the decorations were crafted in some form or another so it was a real treat. here's a couple of pics.......
Just look at those carvings round the walls and fireplace.....!
Sprayed hydrangea heads and origami butterflies...
A paper cut village....
knitted snowmen family...
and pom pom flowers and paper lanterns.....
Are you still with me?...OK I can't count , there are 6 not 2 photos but I hope you enjoyed them. I could show you loads more but I wont keep you any longer and I have to go and crack on too.
next weekend is hubby's birthday....card to make...eeek!!!
Hope you all have a good week and achieve all you want to do. Saturday.... fingers crossed is our re-arranged meal and catch up with son and partner.
Thank you all for spending your precious time with me and for all the lovely comments you leave me and that I appreciate so very much. Without you all I would not be sat here doing this blog.
Take care my friends till next time I see you.
Big crafty hugs
