Tree Treemings Christmas Card

Good morning from a very mild Derby. Its 12 degrees this morning.

A big hello to all my faithful followers *waving at you this morning* Thank you for everyone's lovely comments on the adhoc posts I make, it really is wonderful to know that people are actually reading what I put and having a look at the photos.

I had a lovely day catching up with friends yesterday in Peterborough. It was so nice to see everyone again, Elizabeth, Carol, Jacquie, Pauline, Janice and Andy. I didnt realise that it was March the last time we all got together.

Pam picked me up early in the morning and off we went. Quite an uneventful trip until we saw a pheasant at the side of the ride and both did the "ARR" thingy. Then out of nowhere this brown thing flew from the side of the road and hit the windscreen, both our hearts racing, both aghast. We still dont know what it was except that it was brown and it didnt land in the road behind us. Hopefully we just stunned it and it flew off, silly thing. I did joke to Pam that it was still on the roof of the car clinging on but it wasnt really.

Today I am off into town to an art exhibition and to buy Katerina a few bits and bobs she needs. I managed to do ALL her washing and ALL her ironing, lucky girl. I never thought, she should have done it while I was out yesterday, why do I still treat her as a child in some things and as an adult in others? I guess thats just being a mum.

I still haven't show you all the cards we did at the stamp a stack so, here's another one. Its made using the Trendy Tree stamp, vellum and a little green ribbon.

I saw this card on the net quite a while ago and thought it was lovely but I didn't have a go at making it as it looked so hard to do. Well it wasn't hard and I love this little card. If you want to know how to make it, just let me know and I will happily show you.

Just a few days to go until my Stampin' Up! event at St. Martins Church Hall next Saturday. Hope that you will be able to make it. Until next time x
