52 { Christmas } Card Throwdown August Embellishment Challenge Canvas ........

Good Afternoon readers,
A more of an early blog today....... weather here in Cornwall at the mo, is a bit on the grey side..... started of lovely, hope it does not rain, as I have stripped the beds......... well up early this morning, fully refreshed from a good night's sleep, up the yard as per usual, rode Ace, gave him quite a shock, as he had thought he had retired,  not been up all week work an all, Daddy has been bringing him in, feeding him carrots and apples, but not today...... then ran the rabble, so quite an active morning, meeting a couple of friends in town for a coffee and a chat later today, and I need to pop in to the little craft shop in town, ran out of bling...... but have managed to join in with the fun over on 52cct.blogspot were the challenge is to use Canvas.......
