It's only 14.45hrs but the light is fading fast here in North-east Scotland. It has been a nice day though and for the first time in over a week I had time to craft.

I'm Keeping Them

  This card will probably be for my younger son. At 15 he still thinks money grows on trees and that my purse is bottomless, his Xmas list is longer now than ever before ,this card is meant to give him a shock but I don't suppose it will.

A Special Occassion

The Challenge at CD Sunday this week was wine buff as I didn't have a stamp with wine and I couldn't find an image on a CD rom that I liked I improvised and  placed my stamped image on a wine bottle. This bottle will go to my son and his girlfriend to toast their engagement.

I was away with my youngest son for 5 days over last weekend ,he is going to Germany on a school trip on Saturday and I thought he might like some new clothes. We visited the Braehead Centre near Glasgow and  he couldn't see anything he liked !! My purse did't suffer apart from when we went out to eat. How can a pizza cost £18. At least you got a box to take away anything you didn't eat and we had fun.
