My Friend Sharon

This would have been my entry for the monthly challenge over on UKS if I had managed to upload it on time, the challenge was to celebrate friends. I have never met Sharon as she lives in Michigan and I live in Scotland...but through our team and online chats I have come to think of her as a very special friend.

Spring is in the Air

How gorgeous are these snowdrops. I would love to say they are mine but sadly not...but hopefully by this time next year these little beauties will be growing in my garden. I was very lucky this week to be given some snowdrops to plant....I can honestly say that I love these little flowers, no matter how bad the weather, how rough the conditions...every year these little beauties pop their heads up and take on the world. So delicate but so tough.

Shutter Card

There is a craft group that meets once a month at our church halls and for some reason whenever I say I am going along, they ask if I could show them a technique or a style of card they have never done before. Well the group met this morning and I decided I would show them how to make a Tri fold shutter card, this is not my usual style of card...I know they can be made very decorative with patterned papers etc, but I decided to keep mine clean and simple. I got no crafting of my own done, except the card as I was busy showing them how to fold the was a good laugh watching everyone trying to figure it out. But that means I am now home trying to sort out the craft make and takes for tomorrow nights Womens Fellowship meeting...oh well better get on.
