It's a cold one today, Monday's back around again!

Good afternoon all and how are you this fine crisp Monday?
Boy was it chilly on my early morning walk today, would you believe the sand was frozen, that doesn't happen very often.  The dog and I nearly got caught by a wave too as the tide was heading in, always watch for the seventh one, apparently it will always be bigger and better.  It was today but luckily I saw it coming, I can move fast when the thought of being knee high in freezing cold sea water approaches!

So what is on the cards this week?
I have been asked to work extra again this week, tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday and then Saturday for me.  Oh my poor crafting time!
Still it has meant that I have had to be more organised so today the big food shop has been done.  I used to do one every week but this is my first one this year.  I have just been topping up whilst in work.  It was therefore quite a novelty walking around our large store this morning.
Then I had my wee one home for lunch.
Now, well, the final touches of bling have been added to my Wedding samples, so their off to the bride to be for approval.  I do hope she likes them.
The rest of my day is going to be spent getting on top of a wee bit of housework, how exciting I hear you cry!  NOT.  It's got to be done, and no one else will do it.

Today I have a very CAS card for you, one of my bespoke orders for a birthday card with a big 60 and either horses or cats.

The dies are actually from Papertrey ink, the rectangle actual fits inside the frame.  The lettering is done on my cricut and the buttons are Dress it up.
I did tell you it was clean and simple, but to the brief.
I get asked for a lot of this style of card with the ages and embellishments, not quite as fancy as getting my dies out and having a good old play but they do seem to be popular.

It only remains for me to wish you all the very best on this chilly Monday, stay warm.  x
