Lazing in the sun

Well isn't this weather just absolutely lovely! I have spent the past two days lazing in my hammock soaking up the rays :-) with plenty of Fator 50 on as I am very fair skinned.

Fever has been lunged for the past two days as it is just too hot to tack up and ride. Yesterday she had a nice sponge bath to cool her off but today she is staying in her stable in the shade for a couple of hours. It will help to keep her figure a little more trim and hopefully save her from some of the fly bites that she is suffering :-(

We had a BBQ last night which was meant to be 'just us' but both eldest sons brought friends so it was a little more involved than I was thinking it would be lol. It's nice that they feel comfortable to bring their mates though without an invite.

Middle son is off to start a new job today. He leaves about 3pm to go and find his digs in Gainsborough and then tomorrow starts his new job as an Instrument Tech for EDF Energy. I am so nervous for him as he has been out of work since finishing his apprenticeship in August last year! Please pray that he finds his feet there and really enjoys it.

I have made a couple of pretty cards this week but I am not happy with the photos of them so I have ordered a light tent (Passionforcrafts recommended one) and will post them once I can get them to look nice.

I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather and taking good care of your skin too.

Coming along nicely!

Sorry there have been no new cards on my blog folks but I have been working hard :-))

I hope you like my new look blog? I have added a page to put all the candy offers on as my side bar was getting rather full. I hope this works and that people will still manage to find the offers on my blog. Please let me know what you think.

I have altered my background and even managed to create my own header! ooooh and I also added a counter at the bottom of the page! How clever am I??? lol

I have also managed to make some cards too and really enjoyed making some stepped cards that I saw on the DoCrafts website.

The first one I made is for my sons 18th birthday in July

I used the It's a man's world stamps and Promarkers to create my little men.

I have quite a few more cards to post too but the h*******k is calling so watch this space...

Fighting Fit!

Well here I am back to fighting fit again...well almost :)

Did a very silly thing last week when I accidently ingested some horse wormer! All I can say is after a day in hospital on a drip I am now free of all parasites ever known to man...or at least I had better be lol Managed to get Slimmer of the week at SW after losing 6lbs this week! Bit of a fraud really but they insited I have it :-)

So having not been able to make cards for a few days I was eager to get back to it. Spent a nice day at my mum's on Saturday getting our weekly fix.

This is this weeks Slimmer of the week card which I have made for the SW box:

It is Daisy and Dandelion paper on a scallopped card. Then a pink ribbon vertically in the centre of the page. A piece of blue card and more paper layed with a blue ribbon horizontally across them. I then added a ribbon to the top. The image is taken from my crafting magazine and stuck to card with promarker around the edges. I am also intending to use this card in Claire's challenge on DoCrafts :)

I am also always short of men's cards so made this one:
