Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well.
I'm still up and down but did manage to get out to a local Thai for lunch with some friends on Friday. There are between 10 and 12 of us that meet up about 3 times each year but they had held off whilst I haven't been well so, although I had seen some of them separately, we hadn't all been together since the beginning of the year.
It was lovely to catch up and the Pak Tod and Pla Rad Prik (Maureen, don't go there lol!!!) were extremely tasty.
Just as well, as I was at the dentist straight afterwards as a bit of one of my back teeth had snapped off on Thursday afternoon (I was only chewing on a prawn).
Now, as I've been showing samples I made for John, I'm late showing Nesta's Diwali card so I thought I'd better get it shown before I start on showing the Christmas makes.
There was a bit of re-cycling involved as the beautiful purple card was actually the front of an 8x8 invitation to a special birthday party for Nesta a couple of years ago and I did the usual crafters thing of "keeping it as it may come in handy" . . . . . . . Don't any of you try and deny it, you know you all do it lol!!!
The surprise with this, is that it lights up . . . . . . well, it is for the festival of lights lol!
Gold mirror card
Vintage gold card
Sue Wilson Ara Mini Gemini
SB 2013 Snowflake Pendant
SB Delightful Circles
Memory Box Alphabet dies
DCWV lights and deep foam
Hobbycraft corner punch
Gold Krylon pen
As you can see the foam is deep to accommodate the battery pack, which obviously had to be placed somewhere easily accessible, so I popped it under the top corner.
Nesta was thrilled with it and has shown it round her family, I think more for the novelty value of it lighting up lol!!!
Well, most of the Christmas food shop was done with Mr D on a day when I was feeling good so its just the fresh stuff left to get nearer the day. The most labour intensive thing always seems to be the trifle (Mr D's favourite).
Its Mr D's birthday next weekend so I'm hoping to being up to making his cake. I've got something in mind so I hope I get to do it.
Only a few Christmas cards to do now too so on the home stretch.
That's me for today. Hope that you have all had a great weekend and that you have a super week ahead.
