a little behind

Over at the stamp shack, I'm in a "swap" which helps me to build up my Christmas card stash so its not a rush........... well you guessed it I haven't been able to keep up!! But I'm trying to make sure I catch up a little especially knowing that my next op is around the corner(mid September).

Well here is one that I made for a challange that I found whilst surfing the net late the other night or early in the morning........I couldn't sleep. The challange site is called Stampin Sisters in Christ , this is their first challange which is to make a card with a food or drink theme.
The image is Tilda cooking, I just loved the stripey paper that came in a goodie bag that I had bought for my birthday. The sentiment and card stock is from Stampin' Up!

A few piccie's from our hols...

Well we only managed to get out for 2 days as I was taken ill and laid up in my hotel room for the rest off it. It was pretty scary seeing as I'm the driver and we were up in Liverpool.

We decided to pop up and visit this city as my darling hubby is "Beatles" mad and I thought it would be great for Heidi to see the Tate in Liverpool seeing as she is starting to study for her Art and Design GSCE.....

The first day the weather was beautiful so we decided to visit Chester Zoo, it was fantastic and I would recommend it to people over London Zoo. A huge variety of animals to see, and if you have problems walking around you can still see most by using their monorail, it was great!!!!

The second day we ventured into Liverpool, to the Albert Docks to visit the "Beatles Story" muesum, Frank was in his element!!
Unfortunately we never made it to the Magical Mystery Tour or the Tate..........from what we saw of this beautiful City we vowed we will be back!!!!!!!!!!

Proud Mummy

Just had to share some good news with you , my middle daughter Amy, did really well in her " AS" results (2nd year of A level) managing to get an A grade in English and C in Psychology and History.

So that means she's off to University at the end of September!! now she's just deciding which one ...... and I thought this would be the stress free part.
Well done Amy!!!!!!!!

Monochromatic card

Over at the shack some members are setting a variety of different challanges for others to take part in if they wish to. This week was to make a Monochromatic card using your choice of colours.

I decided to ink up my one of my newer stamps from Stampin' Up! Soft Summer this is a two step stamping set I used Note Quite Navy and Night of Navy inks. The card stock is Night of Navy and Bashful Blue the same as the papers. The sentiment is from my stash along with the buttons.

Update on Luffy Meet

I'd like to say a big thank you to Barry, Janet and Julia for organising the "Luffy" meet, another fantastic time was had by all.

The make and take went well, with the ladies staying in the same B&B as me benefiting from another demonstration ........ well that's what friends do help one another.

Thanks to all those that placed an order either on the day or via email, we raised £25.00 for cancer research (ref D0128641).

Sorry I forgot to take piccies so I can't upload any (silly me)..

Keeping my fingers crossed that there is a meet next year!

been creative.......

I'm not sure about you but I find it really difficult when it comes to making sympathy cards, especially if they're for your best friend....... so I thought that I would share a couple of simple ones that I made using Stampin' Up! papers and sentiment from the "God's Blessing set".

I managed to use the layout over on Mojo Monday for one them. The other I decorated with beads and ribbons that I found in my stash.

Friday Sketchers Challange

Although I made this Monday morning, I couldn't post it here on my blog until I had given the card to the birthday girl........didn't want to ruin the surprise!!

As soon as I saw "Gloria" I just had to have her !!
When she arrived home I knew exactly what papers (basic grey Eva) and card stock (rich razzlberry), I was going to use for the challange over at Friday Sketchers.
I've jazzed her up with some prima flowers and bling...

Snail mail

I'm just hoping the recipient of this card doesn't decide to go blog hopping until after her birthday.... as these little fellas are close to her heart.

The papers and sentiment are from Stampin' Up! the ribbon and stickles are from my stash.
