Closing Down Card

Morning peeps.  Beautiful sunshine here this morning, typical as I have no plans to go out today!!!  My card this morning is a Thank You/Leaving card for the staff at the eating place that my hubby and I have been going to for breakfast twice a week for two years ever since we moved to the area.  The owners of the chain have decided to close down.  All the staff were in tears yesterday as they were only told on Thursday.  They will close as from next Saturday.

Pat's Christmas Card Order Card 5

Afternoon peeps.  The sun has popped it's head out here now.  I was worried about the people who were having bad weather this Bank Holiday so now I can stop.  My card this afternoon is another Christmas card chipping away at one of my orders that I have.  I thought I had made lots of Christmas cards lately, when I looked in my basket and saw how many I have made for myself I was very disappointed.  Lots to go on both my orders and my own.

My Apartment Block - Christmas Card - Doug

Afternoon peeps.  Not very great weather here today, it started to rain last night and I don't think it has stopped yet.  Very muggy yesterday and this has continued today.  My card today is a Christmas card for one of the elderly chaps in my apartment block.  I did find an image that was exactly him but I didn't think he would appreciate it so I opted for a different one.  Some of them here would laugh and spot that the image was them and take it in good part but other's wouldn't!!!
