Christmas Robins

When I made my last card I used the memory box die on light weight card to use as a template for sizes, as I couldn't put it through my printer I decided to stamp on it and here is another Christmas card using the same layout design.

It was raining when I got up at 7 am but it's stopped now, and looks like being another lovely day. We were in France in May and had better weather than home, it seems ages ago now but we couldn't ask for a better summer.

Skating or Not?

Well one of my snowmen is  skating, the other doesn't seem to have the hang of it. I did consider putting the image from the card on the bag, but thought the different image made the set a bit more fun.The card is so simple to make a C&S layout, without the bells it would even be a standard letter post.
Another sunny bright morning, even hubby who likes to lie in bed was up at 7 am today. A good day to go to the coast and enjoy the breeze from the North sea.

Summer Days

Digi from Just Inklined
Paper free from Papercraft Essentials
Tags ?? I've had these a long time and used a rub on sentiment on them

The house is very quiet with James away for a few days, although we don't see an awful lot of him he makes his presence felt. At least his room is now sparkling clean. We've had a beautiful few days and despite a dull start today is beginning to look promising, if it does stay nice a trip round the coast sounds like a good idea.
Thanks to all those who leave me a comment on my posts it is very much appreciated.

Challenges my idea of fun is to be able to RELAX
