What a fab day .....

...  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:
