Rain, Rain

Go away!
Doubt that'll work. Could do with an Indian Summer here. It's blooming freezing but I refuse to turn the heating on yet.

I'm waiting on my daughter getting back from Alton Towers. She left at 3 am with the Guides and it's been a very long day.

So I thought I'd share this little lady with you

She's a Saturated Canary called Let it Rain. Coloured with Promarkers.

The Sentiment is Lili of the Valley.
Papers and bow from Stash.

Something to remember

Don't despair that it's taking so long to get back. It just takes time.

Happy Day

Hello Peeps and hello new follower Abi. Welcome to my World.

What a week!
Emma was ill, Pete was ill, I was ill. So far Sam has missed it (fingers crossed!)
It was also Sam's Rugby Clubs Festival which meant all day in the kitchen baking on Saturday and 6 hours at the Club on the Sunday.

I did manage to make an Anniversary card for my Brother and his wife but stupidly forgot to take a photo. I do this a lot. It's annoying!

It's a Happy Day here tho as I won on Creative Craft Challenge with Sam's Birthday card AND over on Krista's Saturated Canary Blog I won one of her lovely postcards.
I paid for Emma to go to Alton Towers this weekend with the Guides so she's happy.
Sam is happy cos he finished building his Lego Helms Deep and has convinced me to buy him more Lord of the Rings Lego. (with a donation from his piggy bank!)
Pete got salmon for dinner so he's happy (I hate fish so it's an occasional treat)

I have 3 cards just about ready so watch this space.

Thanks for looking

Wish I had time to relax!!
Been a busy time recently. I have more cards to share , just need to find the time to photo them in daylight. Maybe tomorrow..
But I can give you a card I knocked together for our friend Andy, Hubby of the lovely Susan aka Mixamatoasties. When I say knocked I mean it, 15 minutes flat!! so it's not the fanciest card in the world but does the job and Andy liked the image..

Well yesterday was Sam's Birthday and what a spoiled boy he is.
After lots of pressies we took him to play Adventure Golf  in Xscape followed by a go on the 3DX cinema thing which terrified him at first but by the end he was loving it. Then dinner a China Buffet King - his choice, I hate the place!! We followed that up with a visit to the Amusements.
I was exhausted by the time we got home!

Here is the Birthday Boy with his new skateboard

Here is his card, see what I did there!

Image is Whoosh from Mo Manning coloured with Promarkers Inked with distress ink.

The paper is My Minds Eye.
Sentiment is Computer generated.
Card and pearls from Stash.

Tuesday Thought

I know it's technically Wednesday but hey, Shit Happens and that's my thought for today.

Been one of those weeks and it's Sam's Birthday tomorrow  today, despite starting his card at the weekend I've only just had the chance to finish it.

Better get to bed before an excited lad gets up. I'll try and post his card tomorrow

Hugs to you all
