Christmas bauble

Morning everyone and here we are again on a Friday. 

Thank you to those who left such lovely comments yesterday about laughing
I have to say Jenny yes both Den and I had a chuckle with the "sock thingy" 

Yesterday evening we both had a big laugh when a programme Den likes is 
coming back on the TV but on a Wednesday - we both said together - "what on a Wednesday" 
 just like the Monty Python sketch... if you remember? 

Anyway here is my card for today 

I have been making a selection of Christmas Cards for my Cousin to choose a design she likes. 

Here is one I made. 

I have used Clarity Stamps for this and a stencil 

First I placed the stencil on a white square card blank - inked in blue just lightly to 
create the bauble.

Then stamped in black the images. Added yellow to the background and then a
blue shade of alcohol pen around the edge to bring it all together. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Just as a little extra something today .... here is an oldie I made over a year ago. 

Have to say I just love the sentiment !

Friends are Flowers that never fade !!

Although my very very best friend died of cancer 8 years ago I miss her but I remember 
her always, there are times I wish I could say "such and such" and have those laughs we use to have
but I am grateful that I had some wonderful times with her. 

Just phoned Mum and she is very down and I feel quite low myself now - with worry - 
so I have said how I feel, I will now go for a walk into the fresh air and remember those 
good times. 

And think I will put on some bread to bake - nothing better than fresh bread smell :) 

Remember I can not change how others feel only myself. 

Have a great day and look forward to hearing from you with your thoughts too.
