Christmas card of the day


Here is another snowman, stamped with a friends stamp at a crop, so I am not totally sure who made it, but think it was by Stampendous. I decided to use the Martha Stewart star punch to cut a border out all around a white rectangle, bad mistake, huge, because of course when you get to the corners it all goes belly up. By this time I was tired, and the floor was littered with tiny punched out stars, so I gathered some of them up and stuck them on all over the place, including the corners to disguise the mess.


Thank you all so much for taking the time to send me birthday wishes, I really appreciated it. Today we went with friends (another British couple, very old friends John and Barbara) for lunch at a place called Tarpon Turtle, on the river in Tarpon Springs. It was a lovely setting for lunch, sitting there looking out at the little ducks and egrets. 'Oh look' said Barb brightly 'a baby crocodile' - a baby alligator actually Barb, wrong continent. He was about a foot long and stayed there for about an hour, sunning himself and looking thoughtfully at the ducks.


I have finished my latest commission for Papercraft Inspirations, apart from playing around with the text a little, so they are all ready to mail, and looking good. The whole series of cards went really well, except for the last one which I made, tore up, reworked, tore up, reworked...............and so on, ad infinitum. Finally, I changed the paper I was using, and it all fell into place. So now I am a happy bunny, hope the Editor will be too.

First of all any resturaunt with the name Turtle in it has to be a fun place.

Second, that card is too cute. I mean where do you find the time. I feel like my blog has lost a lot of crafting content.

I just can't compete with the masters! LOVE IT.
