The Snow has Gone

Hi Everone, well the snow we were to have yesterday didn't arrive so we are having a nice thaw, and all the ice has gone, making it a lot easier getting about, so This Wednesday I am having a craft day in my home for the club members who very kindly helped me make the card kits and finish off the cards by adding greetings and inserts for the Blackrock Hospice Charity Fun Day last July, so looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday morning for a fun day of card making and a lovely lunch.
Thank you to you all for all your help. Yvonne

Good Morning from Snowy Wicklow

Hi to everyone,
Hope your all enjoying this lovely snowy weather, perfect time to craft, as you can't get out and about, I have just spent the last few days clearing my workroom, and sorting through box after box of scraps, (you know the bits that are just to nice to trow away) and the bits and pieces I have found will be turned into my first cards of the year, so Today I am going to get my backgrounds ready for toppers, I haven't cut any decoupage for a few weeks, so this evening I will start on Communion and Confirmation sheets, to get ready for what is one of my busiest seasons, but need ink badly, and it wont be hear until next Wednesday so I am a bit behind, Have a great weekend enjoy staying in, cosy and warm, and craft to your hearts content, Yvonne
