Hello my friends. Trust this finds you well, busy and having fun. Kelly told us last week about World card making day and about take your teddy to work day! So…

… this was my desk Tuesday afternoon. A great pile of Christmas papers, because I was having a card fest! Three teddies – two Steiff bears which John bought me at a church sale, and a pilot bear which I bought John when he had that flight for his 70th birthday. The pink piece of card is actually a card blank, the top of a pile, there’s my heat gun hanging up and half covering my little hangy thingy which went with me everywhere I caravanned, an empty cutting mat which is only empty because I had finished working for the day, and a pile of backing pieces for DST – it doesn’t recycle, so gets put into a different waste bin. There’s my daylight lamp and to the far right a photo of my lovely supportive family, out of date now by nearly three years – but they haven’t given me a more up to date one yet – I’m banking on Christmas!!!

I arrived home a week ago to a request from the hotel for  about 20 more cards plus some Christmas cards; so I decided to use World card making day as a good start! Managed all 20. I was pretty chuffed. They are simple designs, many made from kits – five from a kit I received as my raffle prize at the crop in June – thanks Sarah! So here is Saturday’s efforts…

As I said – simple designs. I like to make something a bit more arty-farty sometimes – but they simply don’t sell in the hotel – I have to save those ideas for other occasions.

Tuesday was a free day (or so I thought when I got up!) so I thought I had best do some more card making, as I now needed a load more Christmas cards, having given some to the hotel…

The cards in the first of these pictures are all bagged and have gone off to be hopefully sold – the second picture are Tuesday’s cards – all made from a Joanna Sheen kit of Thomas Kinkade images. Oh my word! I really do like layers and straight lines, don’t I?

So that’s me this week, folks. Up to my ears in Christmas papers, and about to dash off to do the shopping for step inside. The soup is made – Sweet potato and parsnip this week… I’ll hopefully get around to you all sooner rather than later – depends how long it takes in the shops.

Take care. God bless.

  6. Hi Margaret, what a fantastic batch of cards! I really need to concentrate,lol. I think I have a CD from a few years ago of Joannas Thomas Kincaide stuff, must have a look for that. Not too bad this week, just improving in time to get flattened again! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 X

  7. Oh wow, so many cards, amazing. Now the teddies are gorgeous and imagine finding Steiff at a church sale, lucky you. I have collected teddy bears for a long time but never been lucky enough to find any at a Church sale. Have a lovely woyww and a happy creative week, Angela x14x

  11. HI Margaret, yep as a person who sells some of the cards I totally get that. oh, the other thing that never sells for me is cards with no sentiment on the front. lol. at any rate I think the majority of mine have straight lines too .
