Yes it is the coffee/tea cup - we haven't seen that for a while!
A round up of news today so pop the kettle on.
Firstly, special thanks to Hazel who has voted for me in the 2013 Craft Awards -
I blushed when I read that!
In case you are not familiar with the Craft Awards, it is a chance for you
to vote for your favourites. You can select your favourite products, blogs and more.
It is in the form of a really easy survey, some names are stipulated or you can
tick the 'other' box and type in your choice.
Spellbinders® is mentioned so if you feel inclined to tick that box.... :)
All the details are here.
On one of our many hospital visits this week we were at King's College Hospital so we
called into the Ronald McDonald House in Camberwell.
Some time back I mentioned about Elliott progressing to a bird on the tree of life
and this was our first opportunity to visit, drop in a cheque and select a bird.
Here's the boy himself with his carved bird.
A close up.
And a smiley face although very tired eyes, he's not getting much sleep bless him!
We are now on our way to having Elliott's name on the tree trunk!
Tons of thanks to you all who have donated and purchased kits -
the kits are ongoing and there will always be spares available.
I will just mention there has been a slight 'teapot delay'!
I had to order some extra teapot charms and they did not send enough but
they are rushing them through especially fast now.
So, if you are awaiting a September Add-On Kit I promise it will be on
its way to you within a day or two.
Now how about Christmas...yes when the sun is shining I'm still thinking of Christmas!
This is one of the cards featured in 'Make Christmas Cards' magazine.
It is rather geometrical and a little different to my usual style but so simple to produce.
The white background is created with Graduated Dots, Classic Heart and
Create A Flake dies. The rest is achieved with the papers that come
from the magazine and just a little bit of green dotted ribbon.
Today we are heading off to The Royal Marsden to see if Elliott's
relaxation techniques will help, fingers crossed. I'm thinking we will
be stopping at McDonalds again! I've progressed to eating their salads - not bad!
Take care friends - have a wonderful weekend.
