the day we go on holiday!! Whoo Hoo!
A week in Wales with Alan and Harvey.
I'm dying to get Harvey on that beach and see him run and play!
(As long as he comes back)!!! LOL
So my wonderful blogging friends,
have a wonderful and peaceful week
'till next Saturday when I'll be back with some pictures of our holiday! ;0)

Well actually, we needed to get two 40th birthday cards made
for a friend of Pam's.
(Quickly becoming a friend of mine too). ;0)
I got three Forever Friends Bears stamps yesterday,
so Pam collared them and I played with my new Duet stamp
from Simon Says Stamp. Fantastic stamps and a really quick S&H.
(Got the Quartet at the same time).
Nearly all the components are from the stash I got from my secret sister!! The metal greeting is from Lakeland and the little gems are from a set Pam's husband, Dan brought me back from the US. The brad and ribbon are from my stash. I added a '40' sticker to the center of the brad. I coloured the stamp with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid and highlighted it a little with black ink.Added a strip of pink lace down one side too, just to be greedy.

Thanks for popping over.
I've been either looking after Mum, entertaining my wonderful friends, Having Danny over for the weekend helping BJ celebrate his 27th birthday, or just lately.....
being a bit poorly. Feel tons better today though, except I've been to the dentist 'coz I'm in agony with what turned out to be an infected ulcerated abcesss full of puss. Yewwwww.
No wonder I've been AWOL!!!! Don't want to be in agony on my holiday next week, so got some antibiotics to kill the infection and ease the pain, 'till I see my proper dentist on the 17th October.
Yak, enough scary stories. I HAVE managed one or two offerings during my eventful absence!
This one is pretty self-explanatory.
Here I've used an Elzibell stamped image I received from ?????

It's such a relief not to have to to and fro.
There are five lots of roadworks between there and here.
Nightmare. Not only that, the road was closed yesterday, due to an accident.
I didn't know an alternative route, so never got there. Grrrr
I'm fetching her about 3pm and expect
I'll be at her bungalow 'till after the carer calls at 6pm.
I've managed to make one card at any rate.
It's a 'no particular reason' card. (Most of 'em are)! LOL
I used common or garden pink card from Craft Central.
A piece of SU Christmas paper. Dotty side up, then it's not Christmassy.
The Nesty rectangle was done with a piece of SU card.
Then my Tiers of Treats stamp. ( I DO love this stamp). ;0)
I coloured the cakes with Marvy Le Plumes
and also the cherries that I stamped onto the pink card.
The sentiment is from the same set as the cherry.
(Hero Arts Birthday Cupcakes).
Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for visiting.
I do like navy on a Christmas card, so did these two.
I think this one needs no explanation. :0

Since Mum went into Hosptial last Thursday, It's been a bit hectic.
She isn't exactly ill, thank Heavens, she's had a small procedure done.
I say 'small', but it's causing lots of problems for her AND me.
The journey is taking 40mins each way!! It's rush hour(s) when I come out at 4pm!
PLUS, there are FOUR lots of roadworks going on between Macclesfield and Stepping Hill! *groan*.
I've made a few cards but not had the energy to blog them until now. :0)
I hope you think they were worth waiting for. ;0)
This one is an Anniversary card for my great friend Val.
Now to Christmas!! LOL
I added 'Prancer' as I thought the top left was a bit sparse.
coloured him with Crayolas and Sansador and just tied a ribbon round it.
Didn't think it needed anything else. ;0)
I love this little bird from Creative Expressions..
I think he's a bird for all seasons, don't you?
Today he's a cute little Robin.
Mounted on DP from the 'Plum Pudding' A4 pad.
(From Craftwork Cards).
Coloured, as usual, with Crayolas and Sansador.
The round greeting is a Cuddly Buddly stamp.
Paper trimmed with my trusty Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch.
These two are made with my Winter Scene Cuttlebug folder.
You can't see it hardly, but there's a lot of sparkle
(Glamour Dust) on the rooftops
and down the embossed line at the left hand side.
So, as you see, I HAVE been making some cards and with a bit of luck,
may have a chance to join in a challenge or two soon. :0)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
