Needing A Rest

Today I went to visit some friends - and Ron tagged along again.  He was getting bored with all the socialising and decided he would have a nap under the tree.

Merry Christmas

This week at CHNC, our optional twist is Quick and Easy.  Now, this card might not look easy but it was - the image and sentiment were already printed out.  The layers comprise of scraps from my scraps box and the layout follows a sketch.  Probably the most time consuming thing about the card was photographing and watermarking it!

I have used an image and sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps.  The scraps used in the layering are from different christmas paper pads.  I'm fairly sure that the star one is from Sugar and Spice Studio but I'm not sure of the other two.  I also added some dotted washi tape.

Reading Time

I had to take my Mum for an appointment this morning.  While we were waiting for her to finish, Ron found a magazine to read.  It had lots of reading and puzzles in it so he wasn't bored sitting in the waiting room.

I needed to do a grocery shop this morning.  So, guess who came with me.

He spotted the red bow on the Self-Checkout aisle and climbed up on top of it for a photo.  I'm not sure if he thought it said "selfie-checkout" as he was adamant he needed a photo taken.

Wishing You Yuletide Treasures And Many Pleasures

It is a nice day and I really should be outside instead of crafting but there is a man up on the roof spraying so I thought it was safer to stay inside.  Once he has gone, I'm going to get outside and get some outside jobs done.

Christmas Kickstart Challenge - The Christmas Story

I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Recollections.  The image and sentiment are from QKR Stampede.  Colouring is with copic markers.  Last weekend I purchased some dies with stitched edges.  I have used those to die-cut both the image and sentiment.  I rather like the look of these so I think I will probably use them quite a bit. I added a star embellishment but otherwise kept it simple.

What's under the tree?

I am out and about a lot at the moment getting things organised for Christmas.  Ron has been coming along to "help".  Can't say he's been much help - but at least so far hasn't been causing trouble so I'm allowing him to tag along. 

Today, we went visiting and they had a lovely little decorated tree.  It had lots of red baubles on it so Ron wanted his photo taken with it so Hope could see it.  She likes red and he thought she would love this tree:

I'm not sure where I am off to tomorrow - but no doubt the elf will be along for the ride!

Morning Tea

Today I went out to do some Christmas shopping - and of course Ron had to tag along too.  We were in need of a break so stopped for some morning tea.  Ron decided he would like an orange juice and a piece of shortbread.  He particularly liked the table decoration so he asked me to take a photo of him in front of it.
