I have made some cards!

It was a friend of mine's birthday on Monday. I met Kim through the Crafters Reunited forum and we have been away a couple of times. A couple of months ago she pointed out a typo on one of my blog posts regarding ducks where I got my 'i's' & 'u's' mixed up!! Opps! and Kim being Kim couldn't let it pass without the odd comment here and there. So when it came to her birthday card there was only one thing I could put on it....The image is one I stamped at a meet sometime, coloured with promarkers. The greeting has been computer generated and layered onto yellow card from my stash cut with a nestie on the cuttlebug. A few gems and flowers added and there you go!

I have had a message from her and she liked it and thought it very funny :-)

This next card was a request from my hubby. His boss is retiring so he asked me if I could do him a card. Hubby works for the British Transport Police so he said 'Oh something with trains and police on'! So this is what I came up with!.
The images are from google layered onto blue pearlescent card cut with nesties. The greeting is computer generated, the buttons and cord come from my stash.
Well hopefully my next post will be across the pond from sunny Florida.

Quick Catch Up

Quick catch up time as not been blogging much recently. I am on my hols as of Friday and I am going to try and update my blog during my holiday as we are doing a few different things this time.

So what's been happening - last Thursday I went down to Southampton for a couple of days. We went down there to see a show at the Mayflower. We saw Ramin Krimlow. A fantastic singer who was in The Phantom of the Opera and Love Never Dies. He is taking over the role of Jean Valjean in Les Misarables at the end of this month. (One of my favourite shows) - Trying to persuade hubby that we need to go see it! :-)

Monday evening we went to Eastbourne to see Buddy the Musical - about the life of Buddy Holly - Fantastic show again ..... ooooo I do love musical theatre.

Because of going to Eastbourne on Monday , I had to go for a weigh in on Tuesday. I was a bit worried what with going away at the end of the week and eating out but I am happy to say that I lost another lb which brings my grand total to 2stone and 1/2lb lost :-), Just need to go careful on hols (but not too careful!!!!!!)

Also yesterday I had Leon for the afternoon as we won't be seeing him for 3 weeks. Again he was a delight to have. We went shopping in Tescos and he sat in the trolley and loved it. He is bery nosey though !!!!

Here are a few pics that of the many I took.

Here is is attacking his toy snake!
