Quiet day

Hello my dear friends

Hope everyone is well, hugs to those who are not.

I have had a very quiet day resting up after our busy weekend, Alan went back to work today so it was just Bella, Toby and myself at home.  Spoke on the phone to my sister for an hour and then sat down to make a card for a neighbours friend who has just had the all clear from cancer and she wanted a card with wonderful news on it so this is what I came up with, as it has to go in the post did not want to make it too heavy so made this on my Serif Craft Artist.

My second card is a Christmas card that I found nearly completed in a box when sorting out over the weekend so I finished it off this afternoon by putting the ribbon on and an insert inside, I also found quite a few Pergamano cards (not sure if that is the right spelling) that I had made ages ago but they need some sort of insert inside to highlight them so will have to sort them out over the next few days and will post them when done.  

I have someone coming over tomorrow to pick up loads of crafty bits that I had put up for sale on the South Hams facebook page so hopefully they will be gone by lunchtime.  Some bits to go to the charity shop and then the only sorting I have to do are the shelves under my desk not sure what is there so will probably have loads of stuff that I have forgotten I had.
Well am off to do a bit of blog hopping, hope you all have a good evening.
Loads of love
