Time to Relax

Hi Bloggers,

This week over at CASology, the cue card is ...



Now, I know we all find crafting very therapeutic and relaxing, but what else do we like to do - read a book; listen to music; sit and watch the telly whilst scoffing a large bar of chocolate (that's me); and some people like to do crosswords and word searches - so that's what I've decided to do for my card ....




I simply made a table in Word - as you can see, the main sentiment is printed in red, but if you want to play along, the other hidden words are "love, presents, cake, gifts, happy, celebrate, candles".

Just a bit of fun because I was in such a good mood after receiving these fabulously wonderful bookmarks and postcard from the lovely and super talented Valerie - thank you so much Valerie - I LOVE them!




Okay dokes, that's is for today (and in case any of you are wondering, I still haven't threaded up the sewing machine yet - I'm such a last minute Nellie!)

Thanks for popping in, see you all soon.

Suze xx

Hi Suze! Oh my gosh what a really simple but clever idea! You know its one of those things where you think "well blow me!" - I would have been happy receiving those bookmarks as well, arent they super. My way of relaxing is chocolate and brain dead television (yea Dallas is back!!!!!) Cx

This really stood out in the thumbnails, Suze! I love word searches. I was impressed by the "relax it's your birthday" and then when I realized you had other words, too, well, shut up! What a clever girl!!
