A Christmas Card WITHOUT Red and Green


Well, what a day yesterday - thunder, thunder and more thunder; which meant I spent most of the day with a quilt over my head! Let's hope today is not the same - more so because it is far too hot under a thick quilt!!!

After a busy week putting the final details together for the home education visits I have organised for July, and a fantastic day out on Thursday at Eden Camp, it would be nice to have a relaxing weekend. BUT alas, that is not to be. We have visitors coming tomorrow so need to have a humongous tidy up!!!!!!!  So not much crafting will be done this weekend :(

Anyway, this card is for the Winter Wonderland challenge - red and green should not be seen. I intend to send this to Andy's boss (and his wife) at Christmas, lol! I'm not sure he will see the funny side but to be honest I don't really like him...  ;-)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Home Sweet Home


Wow, it's almost a week since my last post!  Too much to do and so little time - gardening, (boring) housework... Then of course we have the 2 puppies - it was Dill's first time out in the big wide world too on Saturday  :)   On top of all this our son is home educated so we have work to do and prepare etc and lots of visits and trips out. Busy, busy, busy...

Anyway, I did finally manage to get down to some crafting - 2 1/2 cards to be exact!  This is the first one. It is for the Polka Doodles challenge - Home Sweet home.

It is all purpley, blue and silver, some of my favourite colours. I love the saying Home is Where the Heart Is as it is so true.  Andy and I (and now Josh) have lived all over the place since we met in 1996 but nowhere felt like home until we moved here on February 2010. Our hearts are very much in this home...
