Poinsettia




Stamp from Alota Stamps
Paper from Crafter's Companion Festive Occasions CD Rom
Spellbinder Poinsettia Die
Sentiment from Hobbycraft


It's really chilly here today it's now 12:50 and the grass is still covered in frost, fog on parts of the road too. A day to stay indoors or to wrap up really well and go for a long walk. Hubby and I went to Aberdeen the weekend before last to see The Imitation Game and both thought it was a powerful and moving film. We were in again last weekend as our younger son now works in Aberdeen and commutes daily, the first bus on a Sunday doesn't arrive in Aberdeen until after mid-day and he started at 11 o'clock so we decided to take him in, he does drive and has a car but parking is a nightmare and expensive. The city centre streets were closed at 5pm for the lights to be turned on and a market so something different.

Aberdeen sounds lovely with the Christmas lights and Markets! glad you enjoyed the Imitation Game… my daughter went to see it and said it was wonderful. Not sure I'll get to the cinema but will definitely get it on DVD as soon as it's out! :-))

Hello Meg, lovely card, the owl is so sweet and I love your colouring, pretty flowers too.
The Carolthon is in The Eastgate Centre on Saturday, 20th Dec.
having looked at my diary, i've found that I am actually working that day, but with a bit of negotiation with my work mates, I might be able to do the first session of singing. I just took it for granted that I had a day off, I have had for the last 11 years, anyway, I think you would enjoy the singing and the charity is Sight Action, a well deserved cause, hugs Kate x
