Old Git card

Happy wet Sunday...why does it always rain on a weekend?

Went shopping with my girls the other day to Metro Centre on our hottest day of the year so far.........such a loooooong day - having drained my purse dry...I arrived home at 9:45 pm!!!!!! blimey - glad I don't do it often!...nice day though so tied.....

Todays card is a Guss card from Bugaboo...this is a card not to give to someone that is of a great age - but for someone around the 50ish mark so as not to cause offense!

I am so behind with all my crafty bits - but I am catching up with the "stitched" look - love it...just need to find more time to craft

 Coloured in with Copics and glossed his spec's
Tense in our household at the moment with Emilys A level exams and Rebecca waiting to see if she has passed her 3rd yr at Uni and then only 1 more yr to go....

Take care everyone

Catch you soon

Just to say.........Thank you

Love this image -one of the few stamps I did not part with when I moved over to digital....just makes you go aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh - most Penny Blacks do.
Coloured in with copics and stickled with glitter and glossed a bit here and there

Bought a new mini cooper the other day - OMG if you can love a car - then I am soooo in love...worked out it is 27 yrs since I got my first mini - how to feel old or what will have to post a pic of the lovely lady - girl car of course.....Myrtle is her name......this mini has mood lighting in it on a night time that you can change - wow such a girlie thing....

butterfly card

Morning - bliss not to be at work! but need to brave the shops with Emily soon to hunt for a school leavers ball on a Bank Holiday Monday....ummmm not at the top of things I wanted to do today!

Had to make a quick card the other this butterfly punch - with it not cutting all the way through it makes a fabby flying look. edged with a Martha Stewart punch and there you go
Embossed the envelope
And made a quick House Mouse image gift tag -"Jobs a good un!"
Bought a new Mini Cooper the other day - and think Emily just wants to go for a ride in it...taken me ages to work out how to blue tooth my phone - instructions were sooooooo hard to follow...getting there....soooooo love my thing is that the girls are not insured on it...YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH. Gave Emily and Bex my VW polo and so far there have not been arguments...but they have not filled it up yet!!!!
Take care
