... it's been a brilliant day today. First of all, I woke this morning to find that I've been picked as one of the Colour Courtier for cQc115 - my niece's birthday card:
Thank you ladies - that's a brilliant way to start the day. Incidentially, Georgia was delighted with both the card and her birthday present. So a good result all round.
Kathryn and I went to Mold for some girlie time together. Kathryn needed to have her hair trimmed, but I hadn't booked anything, so we went in to see if we could get an appointment anywhere. Luck was on our side and Kathryn has now got a lovely new style. It's still long, but she's got a few layers and now has a side fringe - she looks fabulous! After lunch we both had our nails done. A real treat for me - I've now got lovely red nails!! And best of all, they're going to last as they're gel!! Kathryn has gone for three colours - pale green, pale blue and soft lilac - it sounds strange, but looks gorgeous. My little girl is getting to be quite a young lady!!
Jonathan had a good day out too - he managed to get in a photo shoot. He'll be posting them onto Flickr in the next week or so. Meanwhile, Ben, being a teenage boy, finally got up in the afternoon and had a good time playing on his laptop!!
I finally managed to get into my craft room this evening to make the last few cards for this year's Christmas Collection. They aren't for any particular challenge, I just had fun playing with my stash. Mixing ready made toppers with my stamps, and I've gone from CAS to story card! Here they are:
