First Christmas card!

Hello ... I hope you are well
 The sun is shining here and the temperature is expected to be 14deg C ... so not bad for November in the UK ...

I got my first Christmas card yesterday ... from my lovely friend Terrie Bailey ... if you haven't seen her unique style .. where have you been? ...  


Thanks so much Terrie ... I love it!

I have made lots of cards ... but when it comes to writing in them and organising the posting ... oooh ... that's where I fall down ... I dither about which one to send to who etc ... I really should make them all the same ...

I also got a sweet little tag ornament this week all the way from New Orleans from my lovely friend Cindy Adkins ...


It's so delicate ... many thanks Cindy

I'm getting into the Christmas mood now and this year I have seen some lovely little ornaments in the stores ... here are some I picked out 


I couldn't resist this ... 


Nor this ...


... it's so shabby and gorgeous ... and what about this ...


... How's that for a chandelier! But in miniature ...


I'm in the midst of preparing 30 Christmas pocket cards for my group ... next week is our last week for crafting ... so they are going to 'make' these cards plus I have a large candle for each of them to decorate ... hopefully we will have time to decorate a lunch bag to put their goodies into ... then I can relax until the New Year where the club is concerned ... boy they are soooo excited about Christmas 

Well I must get on ... thanks so much for taking the time to visit
have a lovely weekend

Oh, Ros! I love those ornaments. That chandelier is so sweet! and Christmas cards already. I am not that early either! What a fun assortment of inspiring things you have shown. Have a wonderful Saturday evening and Sunday. We are back to 66 this morning! It will be even warmer today, not much like Thanksgiving weather.
