Dressing up!

This week I have spent more time than enough taking my clothes off and trying on dresses! We have a family wedding next Monday (1st) and then at the end of August hubby and I are off to a stately home for the weekend with his work. So of course I NEED new frocks :-))

The little LOTV image on this card reminded me of myself looking this way and that in the mirror, thinking 'does my bum look big in this!' lol

I am entering this card into the LOTV challenge 'Fun and Games' as I used to love dressing up in my grannies clothes and shoes when I was little. The challenge finishes on Wed 28th July so hurry and get you entry in too!

Mini Mania

What lousy weather! Can you believe this in July, I am sat in a jumper with the lights on :-( Seems like the perfect day for some crafting but my house is full of lads so probably not much chance of any peace lol.

This week was my youngest sons' birthday (19) and also mine (46!) so we had a really busy but fun week. He is into Mini's and has restored and built his own as a first car. It really is lovely. He has totally rebuilt the engine himself , done all the welding and a total respray. I am very proud of him.
So when I recently bought the John Byers Classic car stamps I was over the moon with the Mini one. I decided it had to be a slider card and it was great fun to make.

I am pleased to report that he was dead chuffed with it :-)

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

Stampin Sisters in Christ #98 - A card with something that moves on it (Ends Sunday 24th)

Send a smile 4 Kids - A card for a teenage boy (Ends 5th August)

Sweet stampin - One for the boys (ends 23rd July)

Simon says Stamp - Anything goes (ends 20th July)

Love is in the air!

Sorry for the lack of posts folks. What a week we have had. I swear I have put half a stone on...I really dare not go to SW tomorrow! It was my youngest sons 19th birthday last Thursday and I was 46 on Friday so we have done nothing but celebrate all week! We certainly know how to party...we just don't know how to stop lol. I was sooo spoilt too as I got a new car and a really good exercise bike (I should really be on it now but you know...tee hee!)

Amongst our birthdays we also had a friend's 40th wedding anniversary celebrations. What a lovely family they have and we really enjoyed a lovely night with them all.

I actually loved making this card for them and even liked the card once it was made, which as many of you will appreciate we are seldom that happy with our creations...I wonder why?

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Stamp N Doodle - Love &/or Romance Ends Sunday 17th July (No 6)

Thank you for popping over and I hope life is being kind to you.

Oooo I had a little sale!

Yesterday we had my husband's sister and all her little ones come to visit. They live in Scotland so we don't get to see them very often. It was lovely to catch up with them and my husbands aunty came along too.

After tea his aunty asked me if I still did cards and if so did I have an anniversary card? So of course I grabbed my box of cards and showed her what I had. She bought FIVE and gave me £10! I was so pleased she felt them worth buying, although I did put one on the side which I had made for my MIL's anniversary and she picked it up and bought it. I didn't have the heart to tell her it was one I wanted :-O I will have to make more cards to replace them all!
