Good morning. Sorry I haven't been around for a couple of weeks. I have been really busy doing things for our WI ladies. Since we can't meet up at all, as a committee we are trying to do things for them, so as well as keeping in touch by phone, email, newsletters etc every month when it should be our meeting we make sure we give them something. This month I have just made and laminated fifty six bookmarks and matching greeting cards. I also do something for our eight vulnerable ladies on a fortnightly basis. It makes it a very busy time for me but everybody is so appreciative that it makes the hard work worthwhile. Since I make everything two other committee ladies then have the task of distributing them on their daily walks around the village and two other nearby villages where we also have members. I live in a third village - but I don't receive anything ... lol!
I am a day early with my card for our little Christmas club. The other girls will be posting tomorrow but I have a DT card to post then. It was my turn to choose the theme and as you see I have gone for no image and make the sentiment the focus of the card. This is my favourite thing to do with cards.

I have been trying to use some of my old dies and embossing folders that haven't seen the light of day for far too long yet are so lovely. The backing paper is one I have used quite often and each time I digitally alter the colour which means I can change the look so easily.
We had a bad storm on Wednesday night and then it rained the entire day on Thursday so the wells and water butts are all well and truly filled up.
Take care and enjoy your weekend.
