I met up with the Gatwick Handling girls for lunch on Wednesday, so what to wear on a cold, filthy, pissing-down-with-rain sort of day.

I'm no good at this posing malarkey, does Cara do it like this ?
Once I'd selected my outfit I was off to Brighton (stopping en route to pick up 'Mummy') for lunch at Samyo's place where we reminisced and swapped airport gossip. Sam, an accomplished cook had prepared the most delicious soup and this hazelnut meringue, which we demolished with gusto.
After lunch we had a nosy around her log cabin at the end of the garden, the location of many a raucous party or two.

(It's much easier being behind the lens.)
Pampas grass in the garden...........?????? Surely not Samyo... and I thought you were such a nice girl .
It was great to see the girls and lifted the spirits on such a miserable day.
Now I'm back to work and have two night shifts ahead, but I had time today to knock up a quick card for this week's challenge at Less Is More where the theme is Trees.
I used a stamp by Inkylicious, sponged the sky with two shades of blue ink and tried to graduate the colour although it's not terrible noticeable in the photo. I masked a moon with a punched post-it, coloured snow with watercolour pencils, added glitter and die cut snowflakes to one side. This card was salvaged, but I was determined to add it to my slowly growing pile of xmas cards. I cut the aperture weeks ago and slightly marked and dented the cardstock on one side, hence the snowflakes... a cover up job. I'm pleased I managed to save it, but not sure if it needs to be balanced with snowflakes on the other side, do you think this asymmetrical design works? Do you rescue cards that have gone pear shaped? Please tell.
