Another month is just flying by and soon, Santa will be here.

Is there a Derby Dabbler volunteer to look after the blog? Someone who can nip in a couple of times a week to update the blog, post the comments and tell everyone else what's happening and when.

Hands up please

Cards Wanted for our troops in Afganistan

Shell over at Challenge addicts blog spot is collecting card to send off to our troops out in Afganistan and our USA crafters have been doing this for ages - and I've been looking out for some one that does this in England for ages now I've found someone. The US system is that the cards are available free though the Pardre's - but will e-mail Shell to find out more.

I thought it would be great if everyone from Dabblers could send a couple of cards - so pass the word.

It would make me very happy if we all could support this cause - as you may or not be aware my son Matthew spent 2 tours of 6 months in Iraq and it was an extremely worrying time for our family and the conflict in Afganistan is much worse with troops dying daily.

Hope you feel able to support this cause

Thank you Paula

hope you all had a good time at Arena last Friday - missed you all. At the last Dabbler I came to Paula bought some items that she cleared out and I picked up some Hero border stamps - which I have used them on several projects so far.

I really would like so I'd like to say a big thank you to Paula.

well TTFN hope you all have a great week

This sum's me up!!!!

I saw this on a blog and I thought I love white Zinfendal or Cabernet D'Anjou the French equivalent and I couldn't resist posting it!!! My other favourite French wine is a white Bordeaux or Bergerac both of which are Moelleux.

Have a great weekend to anyone who reads this post

Catch Up

Had a lovely time at Dabblers on Friday but missed quite a few regular faces. Hope the holidays went well for those who were lucky enough to be on holiday and trust that those who werent well are soon feeling better. We also missed those that just couldnt make it for one reason or another and look forward to catching up with you soon.
WHO WANTS PIZZA - I am going to order pizza for tea at the next Derby Dabblers in November. If you would like to have tea at 6.15 can you let me know please and I will add you to the list below. The cost will be divided by those that are ordering. Menus etc will be discussed via email in advance.
- Tracey
- Karen
- Anne

If your name is on the list and you cant make it, please let me know by 5.30 on the night. Thanks
Okay I know its a bit early for Christmas but dont want to leave it to the last minute. Thought it would be a good idea if we all became "Cakerers" for the evening. That is if everyone who comes on the night could bring a little something to eat, sweet or savory, homemade or shop purchased. Doesnt really matter. As we get closer to the night I will try and let you all know who is coming along.

If you would like totake part in the secret santa will you let me know please. I will start off a list below, and keep adding to it every time someone gets in touch. I will also put a little reminder in the November newsletter.

As most of you are aware, I love to purchase 12 x 12 paper and card, take it out occassionaly (not too often in case it gets damaged), I ooohhh and rrrrr over it, give it a little stroke and feel, and then put it away till next time.
Well, amazingly enough, I have actually cut some today and used it and even put it on cards. Just to prove it

Dah dah
I even used shrink plastic for this card......perhaps the colours werent quite right

The papers are from a new range in Stampin Up and I am just loving them......

Enough from me. Have a great week and please please please, feel free to post on the blog
