Afternoon all, hope this finds you well. A beautiful autumn day here in Suffolk, in fact it has been a beautiful week weatherwise, perfect for getting out and about on the holibobs which is what we have been doing. I'm not back at work until Tuesday so I am planning a craft day on Monday as I won't have Toad around itching to go out. There are times when I wish he was more of a couch potato!
Anyhoo, I've not been around in blogland much this week - mostly due to being out in the sunshine, but partly due to being occupied with a couple of orders that took up quite a bit of my time. I am relieved to say they are completed now and the customer has seen photos and given her approval, phew. So as an antidote to a couple of large and detailed cards, here is one of my favourites, small and CAS!
Apart from stamping straight onto the card base, they don't get much more CAS than this.

I am very excited that Strictly is back with us, and enjoyed last night's show a lot. I love Claudia's new look with the toned down eye liner and her trimmed fringe, it really shows off her pretty face, and I have to say that Tess did a great job. I am sure they both had first night nerves and will soon, like the dancers, settle in to the series. I did see a comment on FB complaining about Tess "touching" the celebrities a lot while she was talking to them - obviously that person never noticed how much Bruce used to do that! Looking forward to tonight's show and hoping that Greg Wallace isn't as flat footed as I suspect he might be. Unlike previous years, I don't have a favourite right from the start but I would like to see Simon Webbe do well (didn't realise he had such a sense of humour). Bring on the sequins!
Hugs to all
PS. Thanks to everyone who asked whether Toad liked his pirate birthday card - the answer is a resounding yes!
