Hello, dear Blogfriends! 
Let me start by saying a big thankyou for all your kind comments regarding the mammogram.  I am delighted to say there is nothing sinister going on, it turns out I have cysts (a lot more than I realised!) which is a major relief.  I have been sick with worry, as you can imagine.  So sick, in fact, I couldn't make it to craft class on Wednesday, which I never miss, so that shows you how bad I've been.
I did have a really lovely day on Monday with the local WI who hosted a craft day.  Everybody took along something they were working on (in my case, cross stitch) and we had a wonderful lunch together.  I decided to walk home to burn off some calories!
I decided to send the hostess a little thankyou note, so this is what I made:

This stamp is from the Fresh Vintage set, and I really love it.  I totally understand that people are using this stamp a lot to go with the Everyday Enchantment paper, and rightly so, as they're designed to go together, but I feel this is a really versatile stamp which will look good no matter what ink you decide to use. 
I have actually used Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive.  I've obviously used the pens on the stamp, but the background is actually inked in Old Olive and it's come out a lot paler for some reason.  I really like it though.  The sentiment is from my Trendy Trees set.
I'm totally excited about my craft day tomorrow and can't wait to show you what we make.  I am actually babysitting for our neighbour that evening.  I hope the children behave, as I'll be so crafted out, I'll have no control whatsoever!
Thanks for dropping in today, and don't forget to leave a comment, I love to hear what you think. 
I'm off to see if I can make a quick Christmas card...
See you all soon,
Jane xx
