Fabulous Few Days

Hello to all my blog friends. Do hope you are not rained out where you are - we are experiencing rather wet weather here today and it is certainly cooler than it has been. A great day to be inside doing the inside jobs that have been waiting to be done.

Since last Thursday we have been enjoying time with our lovely daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. They decided to give THE OLDS a little break and we went down to Moeraki where we rented a nice house and had a fabulous few days. Having never been there before it was an all new experience and visiting Fleurs ( the world  famous restaurant !!) for a meal, was an added bonus. Just lovely!! Fresh fish straight off the boats - one pulled in with a catch while we were there.

This is just a photo of us sitting outside our little house.

Now it's back to work!
I have three random cards I would like to share with you today and hope you enjoy seeing them.

This is a special commissioned card made for a special man! As you can see Alister has just turned 90, he is Scotch and has been trialling dogs for 65 years, never missing a dog trial! The photo is of him at the last dog trials, with his dog Pete. Isn't that an amazing achievement!?

The next card is made using one of my reasonably new dies. A Couture Creations Die,Fantasia Collection CO723224 which I really love. It is so simple but elegant - a card can be made in  no time at all!

Another card made for a friend's birthday. It is quite self explanatory. I have used Kaisercraft's Forget-Me-Not range and the flowers are from I Am Roses which can now be sourced at Artfull Crafts.

As I now have nine of Kaisercraft's new collections to work with, I had better go and make the best of this wet weather. They have excelled again with their ranges - you're going to love them!

Happy crafting ladies and many blessings,

Betsy  xxx
