It may be the weekend but I've been busy all day!

Good evening, hope you're all having a lovely weekend and not feeling too chilly.

I've had a few very busy days, not only getting my Valentine's Cards made for The Emporium (let's hope I sold at least one - will find out next week ...) but also rehashing some of my earlier cards with mostly very satisfying results, as well as making some envelopes which involved using an existing template and scaling down the height of the envelope to accommodate cards which are only about 3 inches tall. Sounds simple enough but it's a bit of a challenge for me since I'm not very good at that kind of thing, but I got there and am very pleased with the size of my envelopes for my little cute cards. I used some lovely thick pearlescent paper too, so they're rather nice actually!

So, while I was doing all that, my husband and son got to enjoy the winter sunshine on a local walk/bike ride, sorted out some food and water for the birds - gotta look after them on these cold days - and did the always fun (not) weekend food shop. And that's Saturday gone!

We now have a lovely fire going and I'm about to enjoy my Saturday night treat - an Indian meal - loverly.

Tomorrow I will once again be in my little world of card making in an attempt to get the little grey cells working well enough to enable me to come up with some lovely new designs. I have a customer waiting to hear from me with a new range of cards so I need to get cracking! My husband and son will be cooking Sunday lunch so I am looking forward to that enormously - it's nice to have a meal cooked for you now and again isn't it?

Right, off now to chill out with my feet up for the evening watching something that needs no brain power!

Take care, keep warm and see you soon.

Love from me xx
