A change of days....

Hello friends
I'm going to feel totally confused today as I'm working in London.
I've switched my working days so that I can take Elliott to the hospital tomorrow.  
It will be a case of constantly reminding myself what day it is!
Huge progress has been made with the mask and Bob the Board.
I'm so proud of how Elliott has battled with his anxiety and fears.

I hope you are all okay following the storm?  
Just some very minor damage to the VT, 
back gate didn't quite withstand the gusts but amazingly the fence
remained standing - it is leaning but still sort of upright!

I've been going through some of my earlier projects and it has been nice
to revisit them.  I don't think my style and tastes have altered a great deal so I remain
true to my inner-craftiness!
This is a festive card that I've featured before.  
I wanted to show that there isn't one Christmas die used here - 
it is Ironwork Motifs, Labels Twenty-Two and Classic Petal Edgeabilities.  

It is a good idea as soon as you buy a die to cut/emboss
just a plain piece of paper or cardstock - you can then see so many shape possibilities.
Please stop by at the end of the week because the 
next Charity Add-On Kit will be revealed.
A little tease picture....
or two.....!
Take care friends.

Just a reminder Christine, it's WEDNESDAY : )It is such good news that Elliott has, as we knew he would, been battling the mask and Bob the board. Good on you Elliott! Just a reminder Christine, it's WEDNESDAY : )I love the card, it is amazing what you can make out of dies and stamps if you spend a while playing with them. Just a reminder Christine, it's WEDNESDAY : )Take care.

Hi Christine,
Soo glad Elliot is progressing with the mask, well done Elliot!!! :) Good luck tomorrow x
Nice Christmas card, reminds me to look through my stash to see if I have anything that would work that way, as you say, it pays to go through older things to remind ourselves what's there.

Funny I was making some Christmas cards and pulled out the Ironworks set thinking it was a snowflake, two great minds and all that. Hope all goes well for Elliott I would love to be there and hold his hand and help him through all his battles. Take care you both.

Hi Christine,
I've kept fingers crossed for Elliott - he has deserved the day to go well. And it would be so good for him to have a break and get some good news, no matter how small.
Have a good day tomorrow, and a good weekend.
Best wishes, Rose
