I hope you have all had a lovely Sunday .. .. .. beautiful weather here again .. .. though the lawns aren't looking very happy.
Well I dared to "press the button" and have done today's post using the new blogger up-grade. All went OK, so it is just going to be a case of getting used to where everything is again. Hopefully that won't take too long.
Anyway, here is my last Christmas card for May .. .. ..
Sentiment: Computer generated and sitting waiting to be used in my Christmas snippets box
Backing Papers: Also from my Christmas snippets box
Origami Christmas tree (tutorial link below)
Spellbinder Circle and Scalloped Circle Dies
My Trusty Sewing Machine
So my Christmas quota has been met for May .. .. and I will be taking this little creation over to Pixie's Snippets Playground as all the card and paper, apart from the base card, came from my Christmas snippet box .
The little tree has been made from a triangle of brown paper .. .. I posted a tutorial on my blog here (over 9 years ago !!!) for anyone who would like to have a go at making one. The thinner the paper you can use the easier you will find creating one.
So lock-down is being relaxed !! It all feels a little rushed to me. So many new cases each day but they still say the time is right. All I know is I certainly won't be taking Mum out anytime soon .. .. .. even if they say I can.
In fact all is super scary with Mum at the moment. She lives in sheltered housing where there are about 30 residents, each with their own flat but sharing some parts of the building. Yesterday I got a phone call from the warden to say that one of the residents has been admitted to hospital with COVID .. .. eeeekkk!!!. So they are now in the process of a deep clean and are reminding the residents again of all the safety measures they should be following!
Thankfully Mum isn't a very sociable bod. She doesn't mix with the others but of course there is always the possibility of us kids picking something up and taking it into her either from the outside world or more worryingly by picking something up from the building she lives in.. .. .. so we are going to have to be "extra extra super careful". I am just hoping all goes well with the poorly resident and that no-one else falls victim to it.
Anyway .. .. that is me for today. I will catch you again soon and if all works and looks OK when I publish then I will be one happy bunny.
I have tried to do everything in this post so hopefully there are no more surprises anywhere.
