Sorry I have been MIA for a few days. Since John had been away for over a week I didn't really want to disappear into my craft room. Anyway, things are almost back to normal - he's just about got through the list of jobs I had waiting for him on his return. LOL! Got to let him feel wanted you know!

I used a Lili of the Valley diecut topper that I got at the NEC last year. I think they make quite nice traditional Christmas cards if you want to stay away from cutsie images. The backing papers are Papermania Home for Christmas, flowers from WOC and the little adhesive red pearls are from Hobbycraft. The sentiment was computer generated using Bernhard Fashion font onto white card and matted onto green card die cut with Spellbinders scalloped squares. The priority job on John's list was to fix my printer which started to play up while he was away. I had tried the usual things like cleaning the cartridges and the printer heads - the sum total of my printer technology!!!
I went to a small papercraft fair at the National Motorcycle Museum yesterday. £2 entry fee (being a "senior" has its advantages!) and free parking, so very good value. I mainly wanted some cardstock because there is just nowhere near me at all. I also bought a new Spellbinder die which I had been looking at for a while, and a new Christmas stamp - which I definitely did not need!!!!! But what the heck! Unfortunately that means less to spend at the NEC next month. Mind you I have a birthday and Christmas coming up...........
Well I hope you all have a great day and manage to squeeze in a little crafting.
Love from Christine xx
