Golden Stag!

Hello to You All, have you had a good day? I certainly hope so. We had another gorgeous day here, the sun was really hot, so much so that I had to take myself indoors and that was before midday. it's however dark now and it's only just after 7pm.

I was puppy minding today, and because it was such a lovely day we had good fun in the garden, although I had to be careful as Rowan has dug lots of holes and there is a danger that you could turn an ankle. She is a wee rascal, Damian has a big job on trying to fill them up. Anyway, day off tomorrow as Damian works from home, so maybe a bit of crafting.

I have just for a change.....a Christmas card to show you;
I've used another of the lovely EF from the John Next Door range by John Lockwood, which you can purchase here, 
Mrs. Duck has them in stock. I applied Alchemy Wax in Gold and them cut this rather magnificent stag from Sizzix in Black and Gold card. Chocolate Baroque sentiment and a few dazzlers.
Really a very simple card to make, but looks rather good....I think.

I'd like to thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, you are very kind. In fact it's our niece's birthday today, but as I have loads of cards in my box, I decided to use one of them instead of making a new one. 

Well that's me for now, looking forward to Outlander later tonight, but I might get a bit of time in the craft room till then. Enjoy your evening and see you soon,
