Sunny Sunday!

Hi everyone! Well it's been a really lovely day here the sun has been glorious! Had a nice walk out with 'the boys' down the beach and of course the little monster Woody had to go for a dip in the sea..he can smell water miles away LOL Ollie takes things at a slower pace now he just walks around sniffing everywhere and lets Woody run for the ball because he can't be bothered. The seafront was totally packed everyone was out enjoying the sun but I think according to the weather forecast tomorrow is a bit colder ...so hope it's wrong! I made this card at my crafty club it's one of the LOTV printed images ..I really love these they are so quick and easy to use to make up a card. I have to say thanks to my lovely friend Soupie (as Darnell calls her) for sending me an LOTV rubber stamp that she had bought two of! We are meeting up again at Doncaster I'm so excited (not sure Doncaster is though Lol) Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post and also to my new follower :))) Take care you wonderful peeps and lots of hugglesssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well the weather has been really nice for the last few days so I'm hoping it stays that way...been pottering in the garden with my two 'helpers' one who keeps running off with my gardening gloves and the other whose nose keeps appearing in my face ! when I'm on my hands and knees lol . The old back is feeling it now though sheesh I hate this getting old malarky! I hope you and yours are all okay and if I find this lost hour I'll let you all know where it is!!! lots of hugglesssssssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Mother's Day/Special Lady with Sweet Stampin Challenge

Hi everyone it's time for our 'Just For Fun' challenge over at Sweet Stampin Challenge and the theme this week is 'Mother's Day/Special Lady'. I have used one of the fabulous LOTV digi's coloured with promarkers and I'm so pleased they have brought these out and the printed images!
I went to the craft fair at Harrogate last Friday with a couple of crafty friends and had a really good time it was only the second time I had been out since I was ill so I made the most of it LOL...I really didn't want much (nose growing a little lol) I bought some essentials like glue and cardstock but on the way out I just happen to stumble across the Gemini machine on special offer with lots of extra's soooooo I thought why not! I've been poorly and was in need of a boost hahahaha! and I must say it cuts really well and really helps with my old limbs:))))
Well I hope all you wonderful peeps are well and don't forget to pop over and join in our challenge! Take care and lots of hugglessssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxx
