52 { Christmas } Card Throwdown July Embellishment Challenge ................

Good Morning Readers,
Well a nice early blog for me today, as I have quite a bit to do around the house, and I also need to do some DT work this afternoon, Hubby working today, so should be able to get a fair bit done........ spent a nice afternoon yesterday with friends, went to Weather Spoons for a coffee and a chat, also got my gems I wanted to get and some really pretty papers, such gorgeous colours, and they are also textured and only 99p bargain, see the pic below..... I also popped in to the British Heart Foundation, and put my name down to be a volunteer in the shop, may or may not hear back from them we will see, and of course while in there I  purchased a nice top....... this morning up the yard as per usual, gave Ace an electric massage, and put his bio flow magnets on...... spoiled brat........ so left him very relaxed in his stable, it's something I try and do at least once a month, as I am sure he get's aches and pains as much as I do...... then had a coffee with the girls, before running the rabble on the fields, I am now back at home talking to you, well below is my entry for the challenge over on 52cct.blogspot were the challenge is Stitching Real or Faux, so I had some pretty Funky Fibre in White and Silver, and threaded it through the scalloped edge of my die cut, to give the effect of stitching and the outcome is below.......
