Xmas Card of the Month

Well, it seems that I never did post the card for September, and here we are in October. Guess that means this post will be a two-for.

Here is the card for September which is based on a design by LeeAnn Greff.

And right on time, here is Octobers offering, which I *think* I came up with on my own. I love the card, but hate waiting for the silver ink to dry. Don't ask how many I smeared because of impatience LOL.

Thanks for stopping by.

Rocking Your World Friday Week 40

I seem to have fallen off the face of the earth for the last few (okay, 10) weeks. I don't even know why to be honest, other than the fact that I just don't seem to have time to do everything that needs to be done. My evenings are taken up with family stuff and weekends seem to be filled with the tasks that need to be done for the household to run. Why does everyone insist on having clean underwear???!!! Don't they know they are cutting into my creative time! Speaking of which, that seems to have been reduced to 6-8 am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I've started a (very) small business selling my handmade cards at a retail venue and before it goes live to the public I've had to build up my stock. It's been tough to do that with only 4 hours a week to work on it, but out of the 50 I want to start with I have 38 done, so I guess that is positive number 1 for the week.

Actually, it's been a super week. Our daughter, Ms Dee, left for a week in Cayo Coco Cuba with a friend on Monday and being the wonderful Nana I am, I took the week off work to look after the Gorgeous (*laughing hysterically, because really, who wouldn't love a week off work?*). We have had a wonderful week playing, reading and taking long walks everyday. I'm not looking forward to returning to the reality of work on Tuesday!

Being home has been so great because my house is clean, my laundry is done and Mr R comes home to a meal waiting for him--that never happens so he been enjoying that as well.

It was quite chilly when we went for our walk yesterday, it's obvious that fall is here. Had to bundle the Gorgeous up with a hat and mittens and by the time we got home her little nose was red and we both needed a cuppa something hot. I'll leave you with this picture and hook up with Annie's Friday Smiles and Virginia at Celtic House.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!
