Long time....

no post! I had a couple of days off last week and so I had a break from the net too. We went off to Hunstanton last Thursday for the day - it was so hot!! It was a lovely relaxing day. We then went up to Lincoln for a spot of shopping where I spent far too much money! Then on Saturday I ventured down to London to see Kylie at the O2 Arena. Boy she puts on a good show! She had me dancing all the way through from start to finish! Yesterday I literally could not be bothered to do a thing!

Back to work now. It's lunchtime at the moment so I thought I'd sneak a few minutes blogging and also do a bit of blog hopping. I nipped out to grab some lunch but soon ran back to the office as it was too hot out there for me - thank god my office is air conditioned!

Haven't made a card for days! So nothing to show you although I am trying to get photobucket to load! I was going to post a few older cards I've not yet shown but it doesn't seem to want to play :( Ah well hopefully I might post again later!

Here are a few more cards for you all to see:

The first was actually made to give to somebody!! It was my friend's birthday last week and this is what I sent her. I used Farmer Tilda which has to be one of my fave stamps.

Supplies: Magnolia Stamp, Crate Paper, Pink Petticoat Sentiment, Making Memories Clip and Flowers

The second card is using an Elisabeth Bell stamp from Sugar Nellie. I wasn't sure about these stamps when they first came out, then I saw more and more cards with them and then they bought out some new designs. I took the plunge and ordered a couple. I have now fallen in love! I'm so excited to see Elisabeth designing a new range of stamps for Katharina's new stamp company, Whiff of Joy. I can't wait to see the new stamps.

Supplies: Sugar Nellie Stamp, My Minds Eye Paper and flowers

The third was made for my dad to give to my mum for their Wedding Anniversay yesterday. It started as a sketch for the Friday Sketcher's Challenge but it wasn't working for me so I changed it slightly. Again I used one of the Sarah Kay stamps. I'm actually not too keen on it but my mum seemed to like it so that's the main thing!

Supplies: Sarah Kay Stamp, Basic Grey Paper, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Ribbon and Flowers
