Take The Plunge!

Hi everyone and thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last post I really do appreciate them so much! This is a card I made for Ted our next door neighbour..he was 78 and he still loves to go scuba diving when he's on holiday lol so of course had to use this LOTV image and he totally loved it....and I'm pleased to say that his daughter's horse Grace has delivered a little foal who is the absolute double of herself and she has named him Beauty. I think he just found his legs yesterday he was running all over the field closely guarded and put in his place by Mum!!! it was a lovely sight. She was so gentle and she let me and Paul have a stroke and scratch which he seemed to love as he kept pushing me when I took my hand away LOL ...well best get my best foot forward...do I have one??? and get on with the housework which has been neglected while I was stumbling around with vertigo. Lots of hugglessssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm going to visit Di over at Pixie's because it's ages since I've been there and I used some white snippets of card for the sentiments xx

Well that's all the important stuff over with....welllll I'm fed up of seeing rain..one minute it's the hottest June on record and then it doesn't stop raining for three days! At least the garden has had a good water and it's saved me watering all the plants :))) Well the 'hubster' is so excited he is going out for 9 holes of golf today! he wasn't able to play at all last year. So I ordered him a buggy so that helps to get him around and his best pal is going to take good care of him. He is doing really well with this new machine and long may it continue! but I will still worry until he's home lol...the boys are both having a shampoo and set on Monday so they should be looking pretty and crafty club will be really quiet because Carol is going on her holibobs! (good thing she doesn't read this lol)  Our neighbours next door are eagerly awaiting the birth of a foal...their daughter's horse Grace is due to give birth..so we are all excited and can't wait to pop down and see it. Well I shall toodle off now and catch up with your fab blogs soon! lots of hugglessssssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxx

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Layers

Hi all you fabulous peeps! It's our weekly 'just for fun' challenge over at Sweet Stampin and the theme this week is 'Layer's'. I have used one of the new digi images from LOTV and I think she is just adorable! The backing papers 'Bonnets & Bowties' also from LOTV now (but sadly they no longer sell paper pads) but you can buy them from Nitwits Collections. So pop over and join in and see what the other teamies have made.
Well it's been back to miserable weather for the past couple of days. Lot's of rain and wet dogs! but at least the lawn has had a good drink. It's funny how the 'boy's' love the sea..and their paddling pool..but do they want to go out for a walk in the rain???? no chance lol so a little persuasion is needed. Everything here is nice and rosy (don't want to tempt fate) the 'hubster' is doing really well and me too..accept for the old aches and pains that is. Hope you are all doing fine and if any of you need some extra hugs here you are ..hugglesssssssssssss ...toodles for now Sue xxxxxxxxxxx

I hope all of you wonderful peeps have been okay in this heat...oh my goodness it's been so energy sapping but at least the garden is looking lovely right now..so we have been sitting out when it's been a lot cooler on an evening and the 'boys' have been loving their paddling pool and iced treats. My youngest brother lives in East Sussex and it's been even hotter down there! Lots of huggles to you all ...........Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx
