On The Fourth Day of Christmas ....

Good morning dear friends.  Another quick post and I am scheduling it because I am going out tomorrow.  My friend lost her mum last month and is feeling rather low. It would have been her birthday on Tuesday and there is Christmas coming up which are all sad occasions, especially  the first ones.  I guess the only good thing is that all three "anniversaries" are close together and the first ones are always the worst I found.  Anyway, I am picking her up quite early and we off to Cheltenham for a girl's day out and we will find somewhere lovely to have lunch no doubt.  Cheltenham also has a little Christmas market so I think we will have a good day. When I worked in Cheltenham I used to love to walk around town at lunchtime but I don't go too often these days.  It's about 90 mile round trip so I usually make a special trip.  Mind you from where I live everywhere decent is a long way away. Lol!

My Card

Another 6 x 6 inch card . The deep pink and navy papers were bits from my box.  The sentiment was computer generated and matted onto another scrap of blue die cut with SB Lacy Circles. The large pink pearls are from my stash as is the glittery white yarn. The yarn is very pretty but I have had it so long I don't know where it is from.  

Well that's it from me. Hope you are well and have a good day.

Hi Christine I hope you had a good day out. Cheltenham is only up the road from me in gloucester! Sorry I haven't been around. My hubby drove me to my mums for a change of scenery so no crafting or blogging done. I'm catching up now. A fab card. I love that it's a bit different. The colours are fab.
Catch you again soon.
Love Lea x

Gorgeous card Christine, hope you had a lovely day with your friend, as you say it's not a good time of the year for her. With friends like yourself she will get through it a lot easier. Hazel x
