I had a doctor’s
appointment yesterday morning, and because our cleaning lady was in and
hubby would rather not be around at the same time, he decided to come down with me!
After my flu jab and blood tests had been done, we decided
to leave the car where we had parked it, and walk into town.
weather was gorgeous, and it was just a ten minute walk.
I hadn’t planned it, it just happened!
We had an excellent
lunch, followed by a slow stroll back to the car and then the short drive back

the card I adhered a layer of Silver Foil and a top layer of Whisper
I adhered the second Eskimo in the bottom right hand corner.
I’ll be working on another card for the weekend’s classes and designing
how we’ll be decorating the Acetate Boxes!
