Phew, busy weekends.


How is your weekend going? I seem to be having the busiest time ever but it's definatley keeping me out of mischief. I seem to have had something planned for each weekend so far. That's why I haven't been able to blog much.

This weekend Lauren and I had been taken for a day out. We were taken to Cadbury World in Birmingham. It was an amazing day and certainly one I would recommend for any chocolate lovers out there. This photo is when we first arrived at the Cadbury factory and Lauren and her friend Becki where so excited, as you can see.

Even Bazill got in on the act!! He was in chocolate heaven too. : )

Any way, on to the serious stuff.
 Last week end I was invited to a friends wedding celebrations. They had got married in Las Vegas but had a party here to include their family and friends. I had been asked to make the invites for them but had also been asked to make a Guest Book for them. I took some inspiration from one my Stampin' Up Mummy Julie had done and made it compliment the invites I had done before. 

The colour scheme was Whisper White, So Saffron and Old Olive. I made the flowers using the Stampin' Up Flower Daisies Big Shot Die. The leaves were cut using the Little Leaves Sisslet Die. The sentiment was done on the computer. The ribbon on the front is a retired ribbon Daffodil Delight. I am really pleased with how this has turned out.

So, on with another week. Why not leave me a message to let me know you called by.

Have a good week.

40th Birthday Card


How is your sunday? The weather hasn't been great here so we are not able to get out and about much. Plus I am abit tired today. Lauren, my daughter, had her school leavers prom last night. It was quite a day yesturday, what with her getting ready but I thought I would show you the final result. I am not quite sure when she turned from a little girl into this young lady.

She had a whale of a time with her friends.

So on that note, I thought I would show you a card that I made for my friend Geraldine. She doesn't do the traditional girlie pinks so I looked for her favourite colours.  It was a big birthday for her as you can see. I have used the stamp set Every Little Bit. The colour combo is Craft Base card with Soft Suede and Choc Chip layered up. The stamped images have been mounted on to Baja Breeze card. The ribbon is just some from my stash that just worked. And if you look closely you can see that I have added the usual required bling.

Hope you likey.  Have a good week.
