I'm a bit late today

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are warmer where you are, it is so cold and miserable here Brrrrrrrrr. I don't like to be over warm but this is not good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I spent all day yesterday in Macclesfield having a crafting day with friends, with a little bit of retail therapy thrown in. What could be better. We had a wonderful day and for an hour or so in the afternoon there we were, 3 of us flaked out nodding. I'm not saying which one was snoring, but it wasn't me LOL. I even managed to make 3 cards although 2 of the toppers I had made at home previously.
Thank you Viv for having us and thank you Brenda for driving :o)

This is one of the cards I made. I folded and cut white linen card to 6x6. Panel and flower were cut with nesties, flutterby is a Marianne die cut and the leaves are Memory Box. The only embellishment is a clear gem from Viv's stash

My apologies for the pics being so dark, the lighting is so bad! I may be good at taking pics outside but inside in bad weather is another matter altogether LOL.
While we were in Macclesfield yesterday the heavens opened and threw huge hailstones at us, in less than 5 minutes the street outside was totally white over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jackie, hailstones! It's cold and horrible here too but I'm glad to report no hailstones as yet. Your card is beautiful - I like the rich colours. Those embossing folders look promising and it hasn't escaped my notice that there is another pad of our favourite textured cardstock at the bottom of the pile. I like it so much for printing that when I saw that there was only 3 packs left in stock, I snapped them up :) Elizabeth xx

I did have a giggle at the thought of you three crafty girls nodding lol. It's been miserable all day here in the South West, definitely a day for an early bath, PJ's & snuggle indoors for me :)
