A Card for a Golfer ..........

Hi everyone, I've had such a busy weekend.  Me and Will went out on his work do on Friday night which was a casino night and lots of fun.  I got quite into the roulette wheel! Last night we went to my friend's 30th Birthday party which was disney themed and was great seeing everyone dressed up and today we have taken Grace to a Birthday party so I am completely exhausted! With all these nights out I have some great pics I want to scrapbook! 

Anyway onto my card this is for a relation that loves Golf so I thought this image from the Digi Stamp boutique would be just perfect!  The sentiment is from Pollycraft and the paper is cosmo cricket.

A Handbag!

Hi everyone I've no card to share with you today I have a handbag!  I went on a handbag workshop on Saturday which was my Christmas present from Will and this bag is the result!  The embroidey stitches are not perfect but I'm pleased with the results and I have learnt a new skill which I hope to put to good use again when I have practised a bit more. 

I'm watching DIY SOS as I type this and oh it's so sad already! I never going to get through it without tears!

Another Christmas Scrapbook Page ......

Hi everyone, I have another page to share with you tonight of my Christmas Scrapbook.  I took most of these pictures on my phone and  Grace took the one of Will.    My husband is a bit of a bar humbug when it comes to Christmas and me and Grace where trying to get him more in the Christmas sprit when we took these photos.  That will teach him to pull such a silly face I don't expect he thought it would appear in the scrapbook!
