Tuesday 28th April 2009.

My goodness how the weather is changing at the moment, one day it's lovely sunny and warm, then today ahhhhh it's freezing!!!!! mind you good excuse to stay in and craft, not that I got much done, I ordered the new Cute Companions that were launched on Saturday and they arrived today, they are so cute, I have them all (it is an addiction), so need to get them all cut out and ready to use, Adam had taekwando tonight and came home with a slip saying he was sitting his first belt test in the grown up section on Friday night, i was shocked he only moved up about 6 weeks ago. So fingers crossed all goes well on Friday.

I want to share this card with you, I made it for the Skecth provided this week over at Whiff Of Joy Blogspot, and am ashamed to say that the image comes from the spring kit and this is the first time I've used it.

Tuesday 21st April 2009.

Well i do hate Tuesdays, I feel like a taxi service, what with the school runs and the boys after school activities, but i suppose I shouldn't complain I know where they are and what they are doing and it is exercise and not sat in front of the tele or computer (lol like me).

Anyway I have a quick card to share with you that has been sat here for a couple of days begging to be shared with yous all. It is for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge this week, which was to use Black, White and one other colour for the accent, not my thing black and white, but after going through my many stamps several times decided on this one............

Evening Ladies just a quick post as I am shattered and about to head to bed, Adam didn't do to badly at hospital today, it's not his fault his wee veins collapsed as soon as the nurse stuck a needle in him, so they had to get a paediatric doctor to come and get some, poor soul is all bruised you'd think someone had beaten him up if you saw his hands and arms, never mind all is well now after a trip to Toys r us, lol.

Anyway I've just taken part in the Scrap on Line organised by Karin over at Paper Craft Planet and this is my card made following her directions......

Wednesday 15th April 2009

Ok i am now counting the days until the boys go back to school/nursery, they have now spent too much time together and have now started fighting with each other all day, although I suppose I can't complain as there are only 2 more days of the school holidays, so they haven't done to badly.

Managed to sneek away for a bit this evening and have the following cards to share with you.

Firstly I hope you all had a great Easter Sunday and that you aren't feeling too unwell after all the chocolate of yesterday, lol, I was quite good and asked not to be given an easter egg, so instead I was given a box of copic marker pens instead, so I was much happier playing with them than scoffing down chocolate, although I did get some of the boys eggs as they had been given loads of them.
I have managed to make a couple of cards over the last few days, although the ironing mountain is growing out of control, the first one i have made is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge.....

Used to make this card were

IMAGES - Charlie and Castle from Medieveil Collection at Whiff Of Joy
COLOURED WITH - Letraset Markers
SENTIMENT - Clare Curds Signature Range of Stamps
DP - Clare Curds The Big One
RIBBON - Papermania

I have been colouring quite a few stamps from this Medievil Collection at Whiff of Joy and am waiting the delivery of the new images that were released at the weekend, as a mum to two boys they will be very handy to have for the numerous parties they are invited in a year, all boys love knights and castles.
I have also made another card using this collection for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge, (although I have only just noticed it's meant to have flowers on it, a well never mind, it's made now from the sketch provided anyway)....................

Ok I promised to come back and add the piccies of the stamped image file/box that I made at the Scrap on Line over at Paper Craft Planet well here they are.

Firstly the front of the file........

Now the opened file ................

Good Morning all, well I can't quite believe how quickly this first week of the kids school holidays have flown past, might have something to do with one having one child, and he's only been here since Tuesday night and even then he goes to sports club at 9am and does not get home until 5pm, so its been a very peaceful week, no kids fighting and screaming, its been bliss really.
Anyway it's given me a chance to get to a batch of images coloured in, I have been stamping up my Home grown boys from Sugar Nellie, more of the Gorjuss Girls set 1, The baskets and butterfly collection from sugar nellie also, just need to get my new guardian angels stamped up and that'll be me sorted, lol, well until Mr Postie arrives with the new Mary Halls and the New Elisabeth Bell "Daisy" Collection, oh me, rubber overload, and I still want the new summer kit from Whiff of Joy and can't wait to get my hands on set 2 of the Gorjuss Girls, Katharina and Karen what are you doing to my bank balance. LOL.
Anyway last night I took part in the scrap on line that Karin organised over on Paper Craft Planet, and this was the first time I've done one of these, but have to say I really enjoyed it, and we made an box/file for stamped images, so once the light improves I'll be back and post some piccies of my box for you all.
Anyways better go get Adam ready for camp, see yous all later.

Tuesday, 7 April 2009

Just a quickie to post to let you know I've just noticed this the summer kit will be open for pre-order Mon 13th April up to May 4th. Then kit will ship out on 18th May.
Now, if you thought the spring kit was good you will just need to get this one too, I know I will be preordering my set. Rumours are that Elisabeth as outdone herself this time. Here's a sneek peek of one of the lil beauties.
So if you like the look of this cutie I wouldn't miss the chance and it makes sense to get them cheaper as a kit, don't say I didn't tell you ;) Go to Katharina's for more details.
Good Evening, morning, afternoon, what ever time it may be that you are reading this post, well went off to collect my dearest sons from my mums this afternoon and ended up at Papercrafts boutique in Elgin today, this is the home of Sugar Nellie Sweetness, although Mrs M is off sunning herself in Glasgow I can honestly say the girls were busy cutting rubber like you've never seen before, mountains of it, couldn't believe the piles they were doing, just goes to showw how popular these images are as they are always selling out, thankfully I've got almost every image released to date(there are a few i still need well want maybe not need), anyway after a little (well ok not so little) splash on crafty goodies we headed home, only ofr the youngest son to decide he wasn't coming home until Saturday, ahhhhhh boys.

Never mind DH back offshore for a few weeks, so it's all quiet here just me and Adam, actually its very blissfully peaceful.

Gorjuss Girls Set 2

Ok the launch party may well be over, but you can still pre-order these fantastic stamps designed by Suzanne Woolcott for Sugar Nellie over at Funky Kits for a few more days, go on you really don't want to miss out they are fab, but then I am a Sugar addict and proud to admit it, and Yes i have ordered mine already.

It's April already

Well I can't quite believe we are in April already where is this year going it is flying past, I know I've not been on to blog much recently but had to go computer shopping at the weekend, so am now on line with new modem/router, computer and printer, so that should keep me going for a while, can't believe how I coped with the old one for so long it was so slow, am loving my new pc.

It was parents evening this evening and was pleasantly surprised by the glowing accounts given to us about both boys, knew Adam would get a great one, but Conner is his own person and seems to be going great at school as well.

My heart and thoughts are with the families affected by todays helicopter diaster, as a wife of a north sea oil worker I can only begin to imagine what you are all going through, take care of each other and stay safe.
