More cards to share

Morning folks...after a brief glimpse of the sun over the weekend here in the North East of Scotland and rain that would have had Noah looking out the Ark looks as though it's going to be a dry day but who knows....anyways I have so much to do this week that it won't matter....I will be marooned all snuggly in the cubbyhole only venturing out for our doggy strolls.
Time to share some more of my demo cards and this WAS one of my favourites....had thoughts of making it my own personal Christmas Card this year for family and friends.....but as it turns out it's back to the drawing board.    It was an absolute nightmare.....a catastrophic won't believe how many attempts it took before I ended up with this.....ranging from smudgy fingerprints on Take No 1....enamel accents smudged when I forgot they were still wet and turned the mat over to apply the old D/S tape on Take No 2 and then on the demo day.....the bauble image decided to throw his toys completely out of the fact he was so badly behaved I threatened to throw him out of the car window on the journey home.

What a wonderful surprise I got when a very special lady came along to say hello...finally I got to meet up with my lovely bloggy buddy Tina....Tina and I have known each other from way back when we first started blogging and hey it is coming up for 3 years...and it never fails to amaze me that you can have such a wonderful bloggy friend although we have never met.....believe me folks it really means a lot to me that Tina made the journey to come along on Saturday......she is such a sweetheart and presented me with this gorgeous card...

and The Furry Boy got a bag of treats 

from Tina's adorable hooligans....the gorgeous Bella Boo and Poppy Dog

It was lovely to finally meet up Tina and I look forward to seeing you at the SECC when the Fiskars Girls have a special demo lined up just for you.

But we can't forget our other special visitor....the little fat guy in the red suit pestered me to take him along to our Hero Arts Christmas Day....should have known better....his little bell tinkled all the way to Alford and he was another one who could have ended up thrown out of the window on the way there. Press the button on his hand and he sings...."We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and taps his foot in time to the music...oh yes he is uber cute but the novelty factor definitely wears off after about 20 seconds.... the bonus is he has an OFF button.

Won't tell you how long it took me to upload all these pics...Mr Blogger is in big danger of getting a slap at the moment....he is being so naughty and the magic number is now
Catch up with you all tomorrow
