Card Gift Set - Saturday 14th September

Hello Friends,

I'm updating this at 9pm here in Sam Francisco, so I guess it's already Saturday back home.We had a two hour flight delay but otherwise it was the holiday can begin!

I want to share the first of the presents I have made for some of my family over here in the USA: first of all for my auntie Dorothy and cousin Sandy, here in San Francisco...

 One of the presents is this cloth covered notebook: I had some material with London designs, so I covered an ordinary note pad with it using bookbinding glue and decorated with patriotic ribbons.

I also made both my aunt and cousin a set of 6 cards each and put them in boxolopes, which I also made.There is one card missing from this 'line-up' another acetate tree card, which must have got missed from the photos!

Today is a day of just doing the touristy things...Fisherman's Wharf, The Cannery, Ghiradelli Square and Tom wants to go to Alcatraz..again!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
