You may know from my last post that we spent a glorious day at Culzean Castle yesterday and I thought you might like to see the little things I picked up whilst there. Not only are there a couple of NTS gift shops there but there is a second-hand bookshop which is fitted out with sofas and a coffee/tea machine - just my kind of bookshop : ) After walking around the grounds and gardens the EM and I like nothing better than to go in and browse there, and rest a while. And what a find this Glue Gun Projects book is, full of inspirational ideas and so worth the massive £2 charged!!
And, I just had to get the wee black Scottie dog for Margaret to add to her quite extensive collection of all things Scottie. Admittedly it is the wrong colour, Margaret's Robbie is white, but it will look great hanging on her tree at Christmas. Here's a photo of the adorable Robbie for all the dog lovers out there.
How can anyone resist a face like that!
Next, last week's Christmas card, Week 14 - you can see it here - has won a prize for me over on Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Card challenge (CHNC). Those of you who've been following this blog will know that I resolved at the beginning of the year to make one Christmas card a week so that I would be better prepared this year than last. And so far I've kept to my resolve, and being spurred on by Hazel with her weekly challenges has in no small way helped. So if you've thought about making a start on stocking up for Christmas then perhaps joining in with the challenge will give you the spur you need too.
I'm thrilled to bits of course, especially as last week the prize was my choice of 4 digi stamps and 1 set of digi papers from Robyn's Fetish. Lovely stamps and gorgeous papers. Here's a glimpse of my choice.

That's my news for today done, now I'm off to visit a few WOYWWers and followers - way behind again this week as I've been out playing in the sun and having far too much fun. But today is cooler, rainier and the sun has gone into hiding so I'll have to content myself here in the craft space - not so bad really :)
Take care all of you and happy crafting,
