...and then two come along at once, lol!

Morning All!

And how is everyone today?  Hope you all have something lovely planned for the weekend?  Daemo and I had  yesterday off and went to Leeds Castle.  It's only down the road from us but we've never been in the castle before, only to see the fireworks on bonfire night!  Anyway, we had a fabby day and it was lovely to do something different  :o)

Onto my card and this is my Mum's Mother's Day card.  Probably not the usual stamp you'd expect to see on a Mother's Day card but as my Mum loves card making too I thought it was perfect!  Oh, and yes it's another Tilda.....just like buses ay, lol!  Here's my card...

Back again, just for fun!

Howdy Peeps,

Wow, what a beautiful day we're having down here.  Glorious sunshine and warm, it finally feels like spring is on it's way.  Daemo and I have the day off tomorrow too so fingers crossed the weather stays like this!

I made this card for one of my netball team mates who is just getting into card making.....talk about pressure, lol!  We've spoken about Magnolia stamps so I just had to use a Tilda, that and the fact that I haven't inked up a Tilda for sooooo long and I was desperately missing her, lol!  So here she is...

I hope you're all well and the weather is as beautiful for you as it is here?

See you all soon guys,
Much love,

Oops, it didn't last!

Evening,

Hope you're all well?  What's happened to the spring weather then, netball tonight was absolutely fffffreeeeezing!!  So much so that I stayed after our game to support one of our club teams and only managed to watch half of their game as I couldn't feel my hands, bbrrrrrrrr!  But another win in the bag for us and player of the match for me too, wahooooo!!  :o)

Onto my card and as the title suggests, my organisation didn't last long did it?  Lol!  I was sure I'd scheduled a post so I'm blaming blogger.....but obviously it wasn't blogger's fault, just me and my usual tardiness, ha ha!  So, better late than never here's my Pollycraft DT card, this week our challenge is...

SKETCH

...Nice and simples and a fab sketch too, here it is...

Sketch Saturday...on a Saturday wahoo!!

Morning All!

Yes I'm actually here on a Saturday can you believe it?!!  See, I told you I was getting organised...although I still need to catch up with you all, but that's what weekends are for right?!  Hope everyone is well?  My week has been pretty manic as per!  Working all week and I've been out three nights too - ooooo get me, no wonder I'm knackered poor old bird lol!  Daemo is home this weekend (wahoo!) so we're out visiting today and tonight but tomorrow will hopefully be a quiet one and we can get some jobs done.  Nothing exciting, just sorting out the kitchen cupboards (boring!) but you feel so much better when it's done don't you?!  See, I'm definitely getting old (am old!) lol!!  

Onto my card and this one I made for my Nephew Henry who was 15 last Sunday.  His birthday is the same day as his Mum's (my Sister-In-Law) so we went out for lunch, v nice!  Teenage boys cards.....have to be the hardest ones to make don't you think?!!  Here's my effort...

The sentiment was from a MME Paper pad, as soon as I saw it I had to use it for Henners as it's soooo true for him.  He really is a such a gorgeous kid, in looks and personality, love him!  This card is my Sketch Saturday DT Card, I did panic when I saw the sketch but I'm actually pretty pleased with how the card turned out  :o)  Here's this week's sketch...

I'm baaaaack!!.....

Coo-ee, Did you miss me??  

My Internet has been down for well over a week now, man it's hard to live without it!  You just don't realise how much you rely on it until it's not there anymore.....shopping, food shopping, banking and of course catching up with you talented ladies!  But not having any Internet meant some of the mundane jobs got done, like the ironing so I guess it wasn't all bad?!.....oooooo, it's so good to have it back!!

I hope you've all been well over the last couple of weeks?  Typically my Internet went down just as I had caught up with you all...and now I'm behind again lol!!  I'd love to go back over the last fortnight but I think I'd still be catching up in a week's time so I'm going to start from today instead!  

Onto my card and this is my Sketch Saturday DT Card.  I made this for our friends daughter who was 13 on Monday...

And here's this weeks fabulous sketch designed this time by my teamie Tracey...



Fun huh?  I had loads of fun with it!!  :o))

 Ok, I'm off to get a lemsip  :o(  I woke up with a sore throat today and I'm feeling pretty rubbish!  Hope you're all well?
