Brilliant Sunday and a couple of cards

Good morning everyone. We've got gorgeous sunshine and white fluffy clouds at the moment but thank goodness it's not hot and sticky. 
I've got to try and play catchup today now that the gas safety chappie has declared me safe for another year and gone.
Now I have to say that Sunday was a very special day as I played hostess to our little crafting group this time and we had a wonderful time. We even had an unexpected visitor join us from Spain. Yes she came over specially for our get together.
We always start the day with bacon butties, then it was off to Byrkley Park for some retail therapy and back home again for philly and crackers with a bit of salad followed by fresh fruit salad.
Then came the chatting and laughing with a bit of crafting thrown in. 
For dinner I made a humongous meat and potato pie which we had with veggies followed by a huge birthday cake because one of our group has a birthday coming up.
We even had some drama next door as they decided to have a drunken fight and she ended up being carted off to the cells for the night while he was taken to the hospital bleeding badly and in a daze. I believe the deadly weapon was a flying can of catfood!
Anyway, before you nod off, I had better put my cards on :o)

Two very simple cards. The baubles are SU stamp and punch layered onto SU topnote diecut. Sponged with Brilliance inkpads :o)
