Good morning one and all. Hope the start of a new week sees you and yours well.
Welcome to Helen, who has kindly hit the "Follow" button. Thank you and hope you will visit often.
I have spent the last few days playing referee in the back garden as Misty and Monty (our names for the Mistle Thrushes) have been terrorising the other birds that visit. I knew they could be territorial but they are being a nuisance. Poor Mr and Mrs B, the Robins and Sparrows are having to watch their backs and for breakfast, I have been standing guard whilst they are eating as Misty and Monty won't swoop whilst I'm there.
As its freezing cold and I'm not feeling at my best, I could do without it but I'm not tolerating any feathered thuggish behaviour, especially when there is plenty to go around. The only ones that don't bat an eye are the Goldfinches and the Tits but they tend to feed from the feeders rather than land on the bird table.
Now, back to the card. I realised, as I was in the throws of doing Mr D's Valentine card, I hadn't actually shown you his Christmas card, so here it is for your perusal.
Cream and red card
Gold mirror card
Memory Box Alphabet dies
Sue Wilson 2015 Angel set, stars only
Crafters Companion Christmas Jumper embossing folder
Bebunni Snowflakes embossing folder
Mei Flower gold bling
Dovecrafts teeny red bling
To get the arched shape to the letters, I cut out a circle and placed the letters round it, if that makes sense?
I was another biggy at 10x8 but I liked how it turned out and so did Mr D.
Jenny, I wish I was ahead with this year's Christmas cards but the ones on the last post and the forthcoming ones for the next few posts, were all from Christmas 2016.
Mrs A, hope you saw the link for the mealworms.
Jackie, us ducks get everywhere, lol!!!
I will post the winner of the Paddle Prize for my 400th post later in the week, so watch this space.
Hope this week is kind to you all.
