Good Afternoon Readers,
Well the weather in my little corner of Cornwall has been very pleasant today, and quite warm...... well up the yard as per usual this morning, and rode Ace, once again had a lovely time, had a couple of coffee's with the girls and then ran the rabble on the fields ........ once all that was done, I went in to Falmouth, to show Jo the rabble, Jo has a shop near my hubbies, and she has been wanting to see them for ages, well today she did ....... and they were not on there best behavior ....... they were barking at anyone and anything, that came within ten feet of me ...... so embarrassing , I know the vet said they were exceptionally protective of me, but really ........ anyhoo, after a while they realized that Jo was not going to attack me and quietened down, well after a fuss and a cuddle they were placed back in to my truck ...... I then went back up to hubbies shop and got two new books ...... and then went on down to Trago Mills ....... to look at the craft dept ....... and of course I did not come away empty handed....... purchased two new embossing folders, a bow maker, a pack of 4 x 4 cards and envies, and 120 crystal gems...... see pic below, and on the way home, I stopped of at Pants, it's a rather large charity unit, that sells just about everything , second hand of course ....... but I love a rummage, and came away with a Joe Bloggs shirt in lovely Autumn colours £2.00  and three teddies for the rabble, the nice soft ones that do not have the hard eyes, 50p each ........ so we came away happy bunnies ........ then to round of the day, I did a bit of crafting, and decided to join in with the fun over at  52 Christmas Card   and my design is below.......

  5. The white and aqua color combo is very pretty! Thanks for sharing your work with us at 52{C}CT.

  6. What a beautiful take on our sketch challenge. The chilly aqua against the white background makes it so contemporary and the beautiful snowflake adds so much texture. Thank you for playing along at 52 CCT
