Just One More

Hope your are all well. How I hate this cold weather but it is not as bad as snow.  I see we are due a mild spell at the weekend,  luckily I have the dogs booked in for a haircut on Sunday and although it may be wet it is to be warmer.  They are looking really scruffy but Pamela, who grooms them, will make them lovely again.  I do like their coats longish but it is much more difficult to keep them matt free so in the long run it is better for them and me.  They do not like wearing coats, it is like a standoff with them.  I put the coat on they dig their heels in and refuse to move, I take the coat off and they run around ready for a walk. I like to try and keep them dry if it's raining but not them.

I don't seem to have done much over the last few days but every time I sit down my eyes close.  I have been having trouble with cramp a few nights and it is keeping me awake, otherwise I am fine.  There are a few projects I need to do.  Hope, a young disabled lass, a few door up from us is having her 7th  birthday on the 21st December and her mum wants one of the Faux Books made with a Tatty Ted theme so I really must set about that.  I let Leeanne, Hope's mum, see a photo of the one on Christine's Blog so she asked if I could attempt one for Hope.  Well tonight I am cutting out the paper and giving it a try.  Wish me luck!

Here is my card for tonight, using  a LOTV image one more, how I love to use them.

6X6 Card (I think it was from Hunkydory)
Red card from stock
Home for Christmas (Papermania) paper
 (I also lined the inside of the card with a contrasting paper show it would show through the cut outs)
LOTV die cut topper
Sentiment and glitter from my stash
Well that's my latest goings on, not a lot to report.  I do so love reading all your posts and finding out what everyone is up to. It's a busy time of the year, especially for those with children and who are working so I wish you all well and hope you don't get too stressed out over the coming days.  I am away now to tackle my project, See you all soon.
Take care and wrap up warm.

  5. Good morning Wilma,
    Loving what you have done with your card, these LOTV images are just so sweet.
    I made a few of these Book Cards last year. First one was not so good but once it clicked, I got on great with them. You will make a fantastic job you always do.
    Happy Crafting
