"A Thank You Card"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any one has just popped by to see what is on offer.
Thank You for your lovely comments on Roberts "goodies" I will let him see them all when he come along.
 My goodness it's hard to believe it's December ... yesterday it really was like "mid winter" .  Thick snow, snow ploughs struggling to cope ... opened the curtains this morning there was absolutely nothing.  It is crazy, it's so much warmer today the sun is shining as well.
I am having problems being able to get access to my Pictures.  I keep getting told to sign into Google, when I do it tells me there is an error.
Will try once again!!
Managed using my IPad
This is a quick Thank you Card I made for a friend.
StampinUp Stippled Blossom Stamp Set (no longer available) 

Thank you for calling by today I really appreciate it.
I am signing off in case this disappears
Till next time

"Robert`s Makes"

Hello Blog friends, followers and folk who felt the bump when they pressed the wrong button and landed here!!!  How are you all?? well I hope, if not here are a few (((hugs)))) to help.
Thank You for all your visits and lovely comments, that`s what makes Blogging all worth while, that and being able to click on an Active Blog to see what they have to show. 
As a lot of you know our Grandson Robert is a very keen Crafter.  He loves nothing more than a pad of paper, pens, pencils and a pair of scissors.  I remember when he was about 2 years old, Hazel came to visit .... he was using a pair of scissors.  They were metal but had very rounded ends to the blades.   Hazel just about had a "heart attack"  Being a Professional Nanny she would "never" have given a 2 year old child  scissors, she did the cutting out for them.  All I ever did say to the boys when they had scissors was "mind your fingers" ....  never had a cut finger yet.  Every time I see Robert wielding scissors I think of that day.  
Anyway here are Roberts makes from his last visit.  By the way when it is just him and I it goes non stop.  You hardly get time to draw breath.  When you do there are "goodies" to enjoy.

Penguin Cards, Robert cut out the Ovals & large heart using his scissors.  Used a MB Die and CuttleBug for the orange hearts.  He took one home for his mum, I have the other.
Lemon Drizzle Cake
Shortbread Biscuits 
What was left of the cake after our "Taste Test" and 1/2 the Shortbread went home with him.
 Audrey is on a Diet and was not too pleased, she HAD to try them!!!
That`s it for today folks
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

"Yesterdays Makes"

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.   Thank you for calling in, I love that you pop by to see what I have been up to.  If you have an active Blog I do try to pay you a call as often as I can.  Life keeps getting in the way just now I know most of you are the same and fully understand.  This time of year is manic, it happens every 12 months and we still get in a "Tizzy".  All good fun though ....well I do think that`s when we sit down and realise just how much we have achieved. 
Hazel and I do lots more Charity things plus work for the schools at Christmas.  Mine for the boys school, Hazel for the school the girls ... well just Beth`s these days, plus the Chemo Unit .... and usually who ever asks!!!
Hazel has a Table at Beth`s School Christmas Fair next Friday.  Hazel helped me with things for my table at the boys one.  Yesterday I managed to get time to make things in return.  I had the bits for the Three Wise Men Lantern`s and T-Light Holders all cut out last weekend then ... one thing after another put paid to getting them made up.  Never mind nothing disastrous just life in general.  People looking for a little help, sick boys and not too well husbands needing attention. 
Here are my Crafty Makes for yesterday:-

The Three Wise Men Lanterns made using  Sue Wilson`s Striplet Die
T-Light Holders made using  Heartfelt Creation Lacy Border Die
Poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts
Roses SB Blossom Five Die, foliage SB Die

I have been making the T-Light Holders round ..... then I discovered they make brilliant "square" ones as well, so guess what???  Yep! that`s what a few more will be make like.

Right best go, have lots of things in my mind for today .... will they get done ... we will see!!!!

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
