My week

Hello Blogging friends , welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are well .
This will be the longest post I have ever done so grab a cuppa and I  hope that you find something that interests you . Firstly,  thank you to those who have joined my blog and to those who have taken the time to to leave much appreciated comments .

Well,  the weather has improved here in Adelaide and we have had a couple of sunny days where Doug and I have been out and about , walking . That being  one of the reasons  for lack of  postings .
Sunday was a great craft day with Sandy and Jane . Sandy  bought along some of her Jelly cakes for our afternoon tea . Hand made jelly cakes to die for . while we had two each Doug saved one of his for supper so I  thought that  I  would show you just how yummy cream filled they were!
And here are some of the cards we made

Then today Fran and Jill came for papercrafting . Now Fran does not have a blog but wanted to join in my Christmas card challenge . Here  are  photos  of some of her 38 cards

Definately a fun day today with Fran and Jill .Things kept going missing , and turning up right under our noses missing things do!
Poor Jill ,who walks to my place , weather permitting , walked right way  past   my gateway before realising her error . And Fran left her order behind when it was time to go . I did manage to call her back to pick it up .
Fran , Doug and I then went out for lunch at a cafe nearby
And here are two of the cards we worked on today .

Fran suggested this as the insert below .

and for the  last card

Well I  hope that you have enjoyed your visit here today .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .
