Good Morning to You!! I hope all is well and that you are enjoying the weekend. I'm sure like me yo well have lots to get done with the run up to Christmas.
Well it's time once again for the CCC ladies to share their cards for the final time this year.....boy has it gone in fast, and this time it's our lovely Rita who has chosen the theme...Snowy Scene, here is what I've come up with;
Two lovely images from Micheal Powell, bought a few years back when Papermania brought out a range with his art work....Shame about my photography.
I made these a while back and now can't remember what I used to colour them and they are now off in the post.
I bought whilst at the Birmingham craft show the other year two cross stitch bookmarks with Micheal Powell's art work, in fact the man himself sold them to me and he was drawing at his stall, I was entranced watching him at work, he wasn't holding a workshop or anything, just sketching away whilst he stood there. It must be marvellous to have such a talent being able to just pick up your pencil and start drawing.
I have enjoyed all the challenges set by the CCC ladies this year, and thank you Rita for this one. It fairly fills up the card box and I've not had a rush to get the cards made, in fact I've still got a few left.
However, a note to self....next year keep them completely flat!! I thought I was doing well with having no bows and bulky decoupage, but even gems can keep the cards from fitting through that ridiculous small slot.
Not much on the cards today..pardon the pun, just some food shopping, ordinary food that is, can't face the battle of Christmas food shopping yet. So it will be a quiet day.
We were busy yesterday helping to load up a container which is now on it's way to Syria with clothes, shoes and all manner of things that the Refugees need. Alistair and I have been involved with Highland Support Refugees for a wee while now and it was good to see this huge container driving off with the boxes of clothes for children, which I've mainly put together along with other volunteers. Originally it was bound for Lebanon, but something has gone wrong there and now on to Syria, where very brave Aid Workers, and thank goodness for them, will distribute what we have sent, and that's 919 boxes.
Thank you all for the comments left about my previous card, most appreciated.
Enjoy your Sunday whatever you plan to do and see you soon,
I would like to enter the first card into;
