It has been a manic few days - but we have today been as lazy as lazy can be as neither of us have been able to summon any energy to do much at all!
We did a barbeque (yes I kid you not, a BARBIE) for over 40 yesterday at the Club instead of the usual sit down Christmas Dinner....... it was some feat for my other half who did the kebab/burger/pork steak cooking outside on what is definitely nothing other than a home size grill! Thankfully it stayed reasonably dry and only rained towards the end of the cooking.
But combined with putting up the Christmas decorations earlier in the week, a few days shopping for the food and then doing all the things that you have to do to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves yesterday, being on my feet all day saw me off!
So did a bit of present wrapping and made a couple of very similar last minute cards.
I simply used up some odd bits laying about on the desk (was supposed to be tidying so this was my 'tidying up'!)
Basic red and off white hammered textured card, some organza ribbon, some dies (poinsettia, flourish and a fancy frame).
Christmas greetings stamps inked with 'Really Raspberry' pigment ink and clear embossed.
Centre of flowers dusted with some Stickles - (gold on one and silver on the other) and done!
Pics are a wee bit iffy but you get the general idea....
