Just living

Hi there , welcome to my room . Hope that you enjoy your visit . Thanks for calling in and if you have left some comment thank you for that too . Some times if you are  making a quick visit and don't have time for a comment , may be you would like to tick a box to say you liked the card or you found it interesting ..
Was not as nice a day here but enjoyed the company of two friends this morning for a little card making , a cuppa and lots of chit chat .
Fran has joined my challenge to make 50 Christmas cards by 1st December and as she does not have a blog brings along her cards to add to her tally for me to photograph .
And here are her lot for this week .

On my side bar you will see the names of those who have joined in as well and if you click on their names you can visit them too.
One of todays cards that I share tonight  has a Kaszazz image .
Could not take decent photo outside today as it was too dull .
So scanned it instead . The base card is SU Cajun Craze. DSP from my stash .Image was " inked " with various markers .I just sponged edges with Basic Brown ink . Not sure that I like the Font of the sentiment but I do like the words .
Just living is not enough
One must have
Sunshine  freedom
and a little flower.
While Fran , Sandy and I were crafting,  Doug went out  on his gopher for a coffee and just managed to dodge the showers . Thank heavens for that ! We have a few more days of cooler weather to come so it seems as though Spring has sprung somewhere else for a while . Can't wait for consistant warmer weather as I have put on a few pounds over Winter and need to get back to walking more .
Well that's it for now , thanks again for calling in .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-anne .
