Well … obviously I didn’t get back yesterday. Stace & Jono and little Bree were here in the afternoon after church … and stayed for dinner. Bree is such a delight … and I managed to somehow get some lovely cuddles. (That’s the benefit of “passing” on the card playing — a fun family activity … but I would rather have cuddles!) I just had to share these gorgeous photos … Bree having her first swim with Stacey in our pool. After a shaky start (the water was pretty cold) … she took to it like a duck. Our little water baby! 😀 Yes … she is a little ‘nude nut’ … but look at those gorgeous brown eyes!
Here is the card I promised on Saturday …
In my blog travels recently … I learnt that different countries have different “traditional colours” for their Christmas Cards! Not every country follows the trad red/green/white/gold combo. I have also been reading that many card makers are embracing the ‘non trad’ colours. I imagine that perhaps one day … we may not have what we call a traditional colour scheme for Christmas???? Well … I do like to spice things up a little … and enjoy experimenting with other combos for my Christmas Cards. This “Perfect Plum / Certainly Celery” combo worked really well … don’t you think? A simple card … and so quick to put together!
Oooh … goodie! Bree (& Stace) have just arrived! I am babysitting while Stace & Ree go to the gym! 😀 😀 😀
And then … I am off to do some work! You won’t believe it … but Gav is checking out some new programs for his medication reviews. He is quite keen on one … and is trialling it at the moment. BAD NEWS …. If he decides to go with a new one … the 200+ reviews that I have done all the pre-interview bookwork for … will all need entering into the new system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😯 !!!!!!! 😯 !!!!! That is going to take hours and hours! And … so near to Christmas!!! I imagine I am going to be snowed for a while! But … I have some cards from my stamping day on Saturday … so that will keep me blogging for a little while! BUT … I am not sure when I am going to finish my Chrissy Cards!!!??? Yikes! Plus I have Gav’s 50th to organise (his b’day is the 13th Dec). So … please please forgive me if I am a little tardy blogging at times … because it really isn’t that I am being lazy!
Hope you all have a nice day! After torrential rain Friday night / Saturday morning (actually … a few days before, too!) … it is a lovely sunshiny day here. Beautiful spring breeze! Hugs xx
