Good morning paddlers. I hope this finds your boos all tickety?
Thank you as always for your kind comments on my last card. I'm giving you a short break from Christmas today.
Firstly, I must welcome Carol to the fold. Thank you for hitting the followers button (even if you may have just dropped a Custard Cream on your keyboard by mistake hahaha!!!) and hope you will visit often.
Now today is the start of another new month (where is this year disappearing to???) so its time for a new challenge at House of Cards and September's theme is. . . . . . . . . .Stitching!
Your stitching can be real or faux so it would be lovely to see you enter (this would be right up a certain Janice's alley, methinks lol!) My stitching is real. . . . . . . .(my stamping isn't wonky, just my camera work hahaha!!!)
Fuchsia pink pearl card (Lime Tree)

I did find the stitching very therapeutic and it didn't take too long but hopefully you find it as pretty as I do.
Please pop over to House of Cards to see what gorgeous cards my DT mates have created and why not have a go. . . . . . you know you want to lol!!!
Well, Hochanda (bless me!) has been interesting. After the first few hours resembling a remake of Victoria Wood's Acorn Antiques, it actually was quite good. I particularly enjoyed the fact that they let the guests demo without much interruption; a refreshing change from C&C.
John was, of course terrific (I would have said marvellous but he only gave me a fiver lol!!!)
Glad you got hold of him Wendy. He can be like the Scarlet Pimpernel at times lol!!!
Maureen, you are a hoot lol!!!
After my extra days last week, I have just had Sunday and Monday off and boy did I need it. Normal week this week, barring incident so at least I can draw breath.
Wishing you all a great week and happy days.
