Finally we have a dry day here in the North of England - the blue sky has a damn cheek showing it's face after the horrendous weather! I often have said about being here on the top of the moors and the gale force winds we have when everyone else has a little bit of a breeze, but my goodness have I been thankful for being so high up when you see the floods in the nearby villages.
The destruction and devastation caused by the water has been unspeakably bad - even a 200 year old pub was washed away. Big mop ups underway today but I fear tho' it is only going to be a brief respite as the weather is going to be bad again mid week - am hoping that those who have had to leave their homes are able to get back into them today - even if it's only to retrieve some undamaged possessions.
I don't feel very Christmassy now (did I ever????? LOL) so instead here's a snippet make.
The paper was from the 'odds and sods' box and I layered it onto a piece of beige coloured left over card before mounting it onto the white base card.
I stamped a teeny basket, cut out then stuck it onto the bike wheel, added a couple of punched flowers with tiny blingy centres and two pins.
Stamped the sentiment in Versamark Sahara Sand Ink onto another snippet of card.
Father Christmas (in the guise of my long suffering OH) bought me a new digital camera so I have been playing about with it! Pic is certainly better - and it is nice and easy to use - but it has loads of different settings which I've not even tried out yet!
Another lazy day for me today - feel guilty as I think I should have gone out because the rain has stopped but honestly can't be bothered!!
