I have been very naughty and opened all my birthday cards even though the day of trauma isn't until Sunday! I didn't want them to spoil in all the travelling and we are on Ryanair and every ounce counts! Here are two photos - one of the wonderful cards and presents from my dear Lotstodo friends and one showing all the cards received so far.

Here is a photo that I took of our craft day today. Everyone had a fun day and went away with at least a couple of stunning hand made boxes. From left to right they are, Laura, Denise, Keri, Martha, Morag and Catrin. Think we just might have a few more craft converts!

I am ashamed to see how long it is since I last posted on my blog. Soooooo sorry, folks! At last I have managed to find time to do the latest challenge on Lotstodo which this week is to make an unusually shaped tag. I hope mine fits the bill. I stippled the background using bubble wrap and Distress inks, repeating the colours I had used on the tag. Then I stamped out the watch faces and embossed them in gold. I typed "tempus fugit" (how true that is as I fly towards becoming an oap in 3 week's time!) and wrapped some gold cord around the tag. It was finished off with some more cord and coloured wool. I did a blue insert to finish off the card which is heading to UK for someone's birthday. Hope they like it!
