Fairy Door!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well, but sending out kind thoughts to those who aren't so good.
We were lucky once again in that we had no sight of Storm Brian, I hope though that no one had any problems with it.

Thank you for leaving me lovely comments on my last card, you are all so kind.

I've had a real break from puppy minding this last week as Moreen was on holiday, but I did go with them one day for a long walk in the woods and my goodness did they enjoy themselves. They are very well behaved off the lead and love rummaging around and paddling in the pools,of which there were many, I could have done with wellies.  Anyway, it was a lovely time with the three of them, I don't often get the opportunity to spend time with Moreen.  I thought with all the exercise and fresh air that I would have a good nights sleep, ha ha!, I had about an hours sleep than awake for the remainder of the night.

I have another  ribbon embroidery frame for you this time, again made for a gift,
This is a kit from Crafty Ribbons and they are really lovely, I added sequins and a butterfly and a Sizzix fairy which I glittered up, and to put it in, here's the box,
I'm afraid I can't remember everything I used here, however I'm pleased to say that my friend liked it.

Well tomorrow is the start of another week, they are going in so quickly, no great plans for it, just take it as it comes.
That's me for now, take care of yourselves and see you soon,

I can identify with those night Kate and don't know about you but craft ideas tend to go round and round my head, then I doze off for half an hour and they are gone - need to invest in another notepad on the bedside cabinet !

Your ribbon embroidery frame is really pretty and something so very different, what a wonderful creation to give as a gift.

A delicate & beautiful gift for your friend. How clever to combine the 2 hobbies with the glittering fairy and butterfly to add to your wonderful embroidery design. The box is just lovely as well, and I love the embossed and distressed papers on it. I'm sure your friend was just delighted to receive such a lovely and thoughtful gift from you! Also glad you had a nice walk in the woods too! TFS & Hugs
