James and snowman


We had a lovely visit to my Mum's on Monday sitting in the sunshine in the garden. We took our own chairs, mugs, handwash, toilet paper and towel so that we touched the minimum of things inside when we had to go to the loo before we left. Mum sanitised it all before we arrived and again when we left. It was lovely to have a proper chat and share a cuppa together.

I have a few Birthdays and Anniversaries in June so have cards I can't share yet but I did manage to make another Christmas card using an image from one of the coloured art pads that LOTV used to sell.  He is available to buy as a digi stamp and a coloured simply print.

I teamed him with First Edition jolly holiday papers, some Christmas ribbon and a LOTV sentiment. I used MFT Winter trees and layered snowflake dies as well as stitched square dies from The Works. The adhesive glitter is from Dovecraft.

Planning on doing some gardening this morning as it should be cooler today and we went to a garden centre yesterday afternoon for some more plants. We feel quite safe at the garden centres during the week as they are not busy at all and of course most of the time we are outside. Weekends tend to be busier everywhere so that is when we don't venture out except for a walk.  Last weekend's scenes at the beaches were unbelievable ween't they. Much as we would love a walk on the beach we haven't been near the coast at all.

Great little Christmas card Marianne ...we visited one of our daughters and did the sane thing although we rarely go out anyway as I’ve been shedding fir 12 weeks....it’s so nice to have it cooler today and hardly any rain which we badly need.

Hi Marianne, sorry I've not been able to comment, I had a flare of health issues but, deep breath, back to blogging again

Love this very cute Christmas design

It's just as well not everyone is abusing the 'social distancing' and are keeping indoors etc etc. I don't think we'll see the last of this virus for a long time

Take care

Ah this is super, what a great card, Love the dark papers you have used for it too. Lovely to hear that you went to see your Mum. Our local garden centre opened on Monday but I dont think I will be going for a while. The beaches here were really busy over the weekend, I know that its lovely to have some freedom but its putting everyone at more risk again. Hazel x
