Magical

Hi there ...
It's been a few days since I was able to blog and I missed chatting to you ... Thursday was a busy day as I prepared for my sweet group ... it was the first week back since the summer break and it was so nice to see everyone ... but I was so exhausted at the end of the evening ... strictly speaking we are only supposed to allow a couple of wheelchairs ... but I had at least 3 people in my room on Thursday who were in wheelchairs ... and trying to get around .. well someone really needs to redesign them ... when you get one of those handles in your side .. man you know about it! 
After club my husband and I went into the city ... the QE2 was docked and due to sail at 10pm after what promised to be a spectacular firework display ...


The sight of this magnificent liner both enthralled  me and gave the Heebie - jeebies! I often have a feeling about the Titanic ... like maybe I was around in another life ... and for a split second ... seeing the thousands of people that had turned out to wave off the liner ... and seeing the waving passengers ... well it was spooky ... I could actually see the old costumes and clothes ... like I was transported back somewhere ... it didn't help when a complete stranger next to me turned and said in my ear ... "the inside of this liner is just like the Titanic..." But it turned out to be a beautiful evening ... the only down side was the fireworks ... a technical fault meant they went off after we had all left the docks ... 

 Yesterday ... I had a visit from Ross and Sophia ... it was bedlam here ... my brother was working on the house and the children (gorgeous that they are) wanted me to play and keep them amused ... doing crazy antics I might add ... I don't know how my SIL does it ... I was worn out ...

Finally today I got some time in my room and made my 37th card for Jingle Belles ... This week Sue Culotti  has set the challenge ... Deck the Halls ... There are actually 4 options this week which involve either playing cards (deck) or ATC's ... hop over to the blog to get the details if you want to play along ... it's never too late to join in and make a start on your Christmas cards ... Anyway this week my card is a Magical card (as in card trick ... ok ... bad joke) 


I made an ATC by up-cycling a piece of an old shop bought card ... added some glitter and edging and a chipboard piece from the Snowman set together with a sticker which of course says "Magical" ... The main paper is from the vintage collection by the Paper Cellar backed onto some Websters and the glittery piece at the bottom is also a bit of recycling


Ok ... so that's it for now ... we have a storm heading our way over the next few days ... it's been very windy but warm here ... quite unusual for this time of year ... 

Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by
