Also here is a Christmas gift here by a very clever man – my sister’s father in law made it for me – thanks so much, Mr and Mrs Tolly! It is a wooden spooled tape measure and the tape measure is pulled out by the leather tab then you wind it with the top section, so practical, and I love it! :D
Now the brayer card has been made for the very first challenge over at Craft A Scene. It is Anything Goes (ie made anyway but must be a scene) and you have until Jan. 27th to do this challenge. This is one of the most enjoyable challenges I have done – not that I have done many. I must confess, I'm not terribly good at getting around to them, but please do take a peek over at their brand new blog. They have a DT call out too until January 10th, and some very talented folk have put their hat in the ring. The recipe of this card have posted it in full here (or post below)!
In case you think the weather here has not been nice and that is why I have been so busy making cards – no, cracker days and everyone is enjoying it here – in Melbourne they have copped it (see Jocelyn of Instead of Ironing Blog's post,) they are now having heat-waves, but just lovely Goldilocks’ weather here and very glad of it (ie not too hot and not too cold)
And please take time if you can to visit two fairly new bloggers who are now tow Wonderful Encouragers of this blog - welcome to Karen and Anja! It is great to get to know you.
Well, thanks everyone for popping over here for a look and a chat! I shall be bit slow getting around again to folks, as am flat out for the rest of this week until the weekend. Craft and computer won’t get a look in – but hope to get around at the weekend, all being well.
Bridget Larsen of Fruit Salad Blogspot has sent me one of her very stunning cards - dont you love it?
These were on her desk a few weeks back and I said how I loved them - the colour is what grabbed me at first and also the simplicity of the beauty in this card.
Thanks so much dear friend! (see not just being a sticky beak, but real joy and pleasure from being a WOYWW-er!). I had to smile how she said inside about us meeting over messy desks!
PPS. To those asking about Monkey's top, he came with it (see this post here) - he is called Deer monkey, cos of his top. He came from the UK to Oz in April with family - he usually travels in the car with Tweetie Pie and Mechant (my little PT Tips monkey), but came into superintend proceedings over Christmas - totally approves of all the cards for next Christmas! :D
