Happy Christmas

Good morning all. Anyone going to Ingliston at the weekend? I'm hoping to be there on Saturday all being well.

Well yesterday didn't turn out quite as expected - I'm quietly enjoying lunch browsing the lingerie on-line when the phone rings - one of sister's saying Mum was at Vision Express in Berwick and needed to be taken to the RVI in Newcastle to the Eye Casualty department and could I take her as no one else could! I made hubby drive me as it's too long a journey for me now and we made it to the department with 2 minutes to spare before it closed it's doors! Turns out she has a small scratch on her eye (her eye had been sore for a couple of days and she had drops from the chemist) and they have given her drops and antibiotic cream to use for two weeks with the proviso she goes straight back if it gets any worse. So it was 8.30pm when I got home again and I still didn't have any food in the house!!

Here's one I made a few weeks ago.

Using a decoupage sheet from Kanban and a base card - nice and flat for posting.
