Sunny Sunday

The sun is shining and it's a beautiful Autumn day.
Hubby was up and out early this morning (not sure I like 7 am starts on a Sunday...), he's gone on an archery "field shoot" - they appear to wander around a wood and shoot at various animals as they go - not, I hasten to say the real thing, but pictures of Bears, Deer and (I'm sorry to say this Kel) fluffy bunnies etc... Last year he went on this event and it rained all day so he was relieved to see it dry this morning.
Our visitors left mid morning and should be well on their way back up the A1 to Northumberland by now. Please Tracey and Clare give them a wave if you see a metallic blue Kia go past Blyth later on...

I've just spent a happy hour or two catching up with the 22 messages on The Daring Cardmaker
I've popped on to all the blogs to see the fantastic range of cards that our wonderful visitors have been making, and I've added links to all their blogs to make it easy for everyone to go and see all the fab, clever, inventive Kitcheny cards for this week's Dare. Let us know when you've made a card and your link will soon be there on the list :-) Everyone is welcome to have a go.

I've not had the chance to do any crafting since Thursday when I made the Christening card I showed on Friday morning, but I can show you my latest beady offering, the box I made for it and the card to go with it now. The bracelet is Swarovski crystal beads in clear, fuchsia pink and black, interspersed with sterling silver donut beads and findings.

I've used papers from the Making Memories Simply Fabulous "Brooke" pad

Maya Road ribbon plus some other bits from my ribbon drawer

Prima Hydranga flowers

The oval tag is from Bossktz and the letters are Katie Classic - I topped them with good old Glossy Accents
