Good Afternoon, or rather Early Evening, whatever, hello to You All.
I've been trying to get around to doing this post for days now and the time is just running away, I expect you're all much the same.
I've been slowly getting to grips with the Christmas shopping, and I think I've got on top of it, not that there was much to get, we are a very small family, and some gifts will be gift cards.
Christmas cards require writing, although I did manage to get the abroad ones posted the other day, so hopefully I'll get around to writing them over the weekend.
I've bought Alistair a hat, I found a gent's hatter on-line and ordered a black Fedora, and just by sheer luck it arrived this morning and he was away for a walk. There was no disguising the huge box with the the company name on it and the word hats. So, I've got it wrapped up and stashed it away. I hope he likes it, but there are so many different styles of Fedora, but it can go back if it's not suitable.
So on to my card which is for my Choir Buddy Fiona who adors the Snowman, well who doesn't! I try to make a different one every year for her and so far I've managed. I bought a Snowman kit a few years ago from Crafters Companion and I've still some left. I've made a bowed from from CC snow acetate, and cut snowflakes from Sara Davis to cover the stuck on bit of the acetate, and made a border to put the acetate under from one of the cards. The photo is not good, poor light to blame, it does really look better in real life.
Really only one Christmas card left to make and that is for Alistair and I don't know yet what I'll do, I'll manage something at the last minute I expect.
Thank you all so much for the kind comments on my last post, you are all so encouraging.
Off now to make the mac and cheese for dinner, not made this in yonks, a real treat for me as it's dairy and carbs, so tummy beware, but hey ho once in a while and one has to live.
Cheerio for now and see you soon,
