Elephants in a row .....

Morning all

First sorry not to have done a post yesterday. Was rather busy - had
the Village Hall Coffee morning with my cards, 
and then as the weather forecast was going to be bad for today
dashed into town to post a parcel.

Have to say I did over 12,000 steps yesterday.

Then by the time I thought about my blog I was too tired to do it.

Funny how the days go, sometimes wonder if there are enough hours in a day

Well I did well with my cards yesterday so today need to think a bit more
towards those special cards. Got a commission to do for next week. 

Here is a card for today a quick card I made using up a scrap of watercolour 
paper and a few inks.

I have used Little Claire Elephant stamp inked in black 
added extra green for the grass and then mat and layers on to
blue card stock scraps. 
Added faux stitching around the edges. 

I hope you like it 

and would like to enter it for the following 


I have been reading a book about "getting tidy" it is really quite gripping 

So later today I am off to sort out all my books, well the ones in the house

I have loads of boxes in the boiler house...think those are for another day
as I need help to get the boxes down. But I will use the same technique to sort them out too.

That is the plan ....

or do I settle down to read more of the book....

Nothing like the present .....

Cakes to bake too today. 

Have a great day and hope that this storm does not hit you where every you may be

Bye for now.
