Dasher in the forest - Monday 6th October 2014

Good afternoon friends,

Well I just did a quick round of your blogs, sorry for the quick comments but I still seem to be trying to catch up with myself!

Tom and I spent from Friday until yesterday lunch time painting in the kitchen..finally it looks like a kitchen and we can use it properly. We are still waiting for the glass splash back to be made and then the wall tiles will be placed and we'll be finished...another month I think.

I go back to work tomorrow and Tom went today - I don't think we have ever had such a non-holiday and felt so tired at the end of 2 weeks off! The first week was  enjoyable as we could at least go out, but last week was just working on house stuff...we painted the craft barn and the chicken coop. My back is very tender, but I'm due a sports massage on wednesday and am so looking forward to it.

For the last two weeks I have barely entered the craft room, but we have 2 workshops this week - a bit of a mistake after 2 weeks holiday, so I had to prep for them. The first one tomorrow night is a special 'one off' at the library, so as I work there and I can see myself being mega busy tomorrow, I probably won't come home in between!

The card the group is going to be making is based on one I made as part of Sam Poole's DT, I  only showed it on the last post I did before Sam went on maternity leave and that posted consisted of several projects, I've also changed it a little for the class.

It's a tent fold card using Dasher Deer and little trees stamps, please excuse me for not going into detail, but again this has to be a quick post, I'm still catching up with myself!

Hoping to slowly get back to normal blogging and commenting this week, meanwhile,
Love and Hugs

  5. It does not sound like you had a restful holiday at all but it must be wonderful to have your new kitchen (almost) complete. Your card is beautiful, I love the little reindeer and the style of card is so clever! Enjoy your time back at work....! Hugs, Anne xx

  6. Hi Carole, fab card & having made it myself in prep for our workshop this evening I can honestly say the photos don't do it justice. Your design is even better in the flesh & very effective.
    Hope your back is feeling better again soon.
