Happy Birthday Tess .

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your Friday is going well. 
Today is a special day in the Rice household as Tess is 9, I really can’t believe where the years have gone. 
We have cake to celebrate, 

And a card...

Hope you recognise Tess and Eric...
They are both fast asleep at the moment after their long walk down the fields this morning . 
I am busy getting ready for tomorrow’s Groovi is our Manchester class and I am so looking forwards to seeing everyone..
The cards are made, and my bags are sort  of I thought it was time for a coffeee and catch up. 
Wednesday was our Hazel Grove workshops and we made more Christmas cards..
I really am doing so well this year..

This card is a great combination of Clarity Stamps and an embossing folder 

It is good to use a variety of products, and I do love this folder 

Some inks, torn paper and a moon mask, and we have a lovely scene ready to stamp on 

And look, a great quick and easy card 

And so easy to change the stamping , the colours, the shape of the moon etc to give a different look. 
We also made another quick card...
Bit of a favourite of mine..
Bet you would never have guessed .....a wreath card ...

Now our lovely Julie made a special cake for Wendy’s Birthday....unfortunately Wendy wasn’t well enough to join us. 
But I can honestly say the the cake didn’t go to waste ...

It was so yummy...Thank you Julie..
I do seem to eat my way through workshops these days....and yes, I love every minute of it...
After all what could be better than good friends, crafting along with lots of coffee and cake...
Sounds like a plan to me..
I hope you have a good weekend planned...are you going to any bonfire celebrations.? 
We are having our own little celebration with baby that they don’t upset Elliot and Tess...
Elliot is having a busy week too, after his Trick or Treat evening, he has been for his first swimming session and next will be his first bonfire celebration.


Oh I do love being a Grandma....( can you tell????) 
Right, coffee break over , so back to it...
Thanks for chatting, take care 
And do pop back soon
Much love and hugs

Great birthday card for Tess, and I love that little snowglobe embossing folder. I really must get on with some more of my Christmas cards as well - the overseas ones need to be put in the post at the beginning of December and there are about 90 left to make!!! Have a lovely weekend x

It was a great afternoon Jo. I may not have finished them yet but they are on the desk ready to be done.
Elliot is such a handsome young man (takes after grandad maybe?) and Eric is SO big!! I am quite shocked at how much he has grown.
and Happy Birthday Tess! still a beauty.
Enjoy your week-end. (hugs) Chrissie
