Crafty Afternoon

Hi all

Hope everybody is ok and enjoying the weekend despite the horrid weather.

I went to Rachel's yesterday for a crafty afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed myself it was great to catch up as we had not seen each other for a little while.

I made some cards two of them commissioned and a thank you card for our friends in Sicily who we stayed with and made us feel so welcome, Maggie is seriously into owls so I decided I would make her a card with my Marianne Design Owl that I got for Christmas from our daughter Sarah very naughty this is the first time I have used it.

Sentiment was done on the computer which Rachel helped me with as I could not sort out the paper size no matter what I did my fibro-fog gets in the way of thinking these days.
The next card was made for a friends grandson who is into Spiderman in a big way, the spider has squiggly eyes and the web was created on my silhouette cameo which is badly in need of a new blade must sort that out soon.
Have a couple of pictures of Bella and Toby to show you.  We picked Toby's bed up off the floor and put it on my chair and look who we found in it when we turned around
And of course could not go without showing you the monster in disguise called Toby he is one holy terror never know what he is going to get up to next

Well that's it from me for now will be doing a bit of blog hopping later.
