Wednesday 30th

Morning all,

Well autumn is well  and truly here  now. I just hope that we don't have too much bad weather. Christmas is really coming along quick. Here's hoping you are all up to date with your card making.

This first card was made with blue roses as a tribute to my Dad. He had a lovely rose in his garden called "Blue moon". I wish I could keep roses as I would have one. Miss you Dad

Saturdays challenges,

Morning all,

I have been off line with computer issues  and have missed looking at all the blogs and entering challenges and looking up all sorts of things. Its always the way when you have no means of looking things up you always think of things and when you have the computer mended you cannot remember what it was you wanted to look up.

Over on Craft bubble 2.5 [ Membership required ]   Here  they have a just for fun post and  I won the bingo game,  I have never won before and I was chuffed. I was sent a prize and its really nice; I the next to pictures is the lovely prize and I know I am going to have fun using them all. Thank you Eileen.
