Posting a little chicken.

Good afternoon, again, this week is just flying by too.  Sorry for the missed post yesterday but if you are a regular reader you know Wednesday is my busy night ferrying around my boys to activities.  I also got a phone call from my BFF on Tuesday night saying she was travelling through to Inverness yesterday to do a little Christmas shopping and did I fancy going?
Now I really should have been catching up with things here but I thought no, we haven't been out together for ages on a day trip, I thought anything could just wait and went.  We had a super day, my pal always organized had a list and was ticking off as she went, me I just went with the flow and picked up a few stocking fillers.  Christmas happens whether you are organised or not and I always have a panic last minute!

Back to crafting and today I wanted to show you a card that my pal sent to another of her buddies as she was celebrating a big birthday earlier in the week.  Karena keeps chickens so I thought this wee chap could make an entrance.

The chicken is a quickutz die, remember them?  I'm taking you back in time.  They were the first style of dies I bought along with sizzix, before any other companies were about.

Today I have a long list of things on my to do list and it has started slowly, having had a lovely long walk with the dog.  Not a problem I hear you say, that wasn't, it was the sit down once back and the cup of tea, followed by another and another whilst I caught up on a couple of programs I've taped.  I need to step away from the TV and crack on, if only to warm up, winter is definitely on route.

It only remains for me to wish you all the very best this Thursday and I hope you are joining me tomorrow when I share another Christmas oldie!
