Perfect for crafting


Its a dismal day here, raining and cold. Thought I'd cheer myself up with a spot of crafting. Guaranteed to cheer me up unless it all goes horribly wrong.

Hope you all had a good Bank Holiday weekend. I spent yesterday outside Cheltenham chugging back and for on various steam engines at the Cheltenham Festival of Steam. Took me back to my childhood when if you didn't come home with a smutty face, you hadn't travelled by train. So much more exciting than the diesel variety. My friends brither Ray is the enthusiast and we go along to keep him company but always enjoy the day.

Its my friends birthday soon and her craft is cross stitching so with the help of House Mouse images I made her the card you see here.

Hope you like it.

Come back soon

Love Helen xx

  3. Argh I've just left a comment and totally forgot you have the dreaded word verification on your blog and went back home before I realised I'd not typed in that rubbish so thought I'd best pop back and leave another and type in the mumbo jumbo this time lol.
    Glad you had a great day out yesterday, and you had a better day weather wise than we've had today.
