Well have finally got round to making a card for a challenge....Its for the Pollycraft Monday Challenge which you will fine here There are some great cards entered. The theme was stripes and here's my entry, I used the new Winter Elves-Reflection rubber stamp, which I think is just fantastic, coloured in with whispers pens and water colour pencils.

Saturday Sit in....

Well cant believe its Saturday again, where does the week go, Not got much planned for today because Ronnie is working even tho I wanted to go craft shopping, but he's not going to be finished in time. So I'm busy doing housework AGAIN!! It never seems to stop. The 2 youngest are at their dads this weekend so at least wont have all the mess from the golf course and the footie pitch dragged in. Its Ronnies birthday tomorrow and I also wanted to go and buy him something little to open in the morning because he already got his Oasis tickets for a present. Was having a joke with the girls from docrafts last night about what to buy him and I'm sure he would love a couple of rubber stamps and some cosmic shimmer embossing powders...Going to make a start on my christmas stamping later so will go and get on and hope you are all having a great weekend wherever you are......Hugs

Had a good weekend, Ronnie went to the Oasis concert in Aberdeen with his mate and raved about it all weekend saying they were the best he has ever seen them, was secretly jealous because I really wanted to go but his mates g/f dont like them and I couldnt leave her on her own could I....
Have ordered myself some goodies to make up for it
Just a little catch up from to do some blog hopping and then get off to bed...
Take care everyone wherever you are.....

Thoughts for Thursday....

Well the weekend is almost here, the sun is shinning again here in Stonehaven but its very cold, have been sitting watching the birds feeding off a coconut shell filled with food in the garden, but need to buy another one to put lower down for the ickle birdies as I dont think they remember that they can
Just away to put some washing on the line, then mum comming round for a visit. Might get her to help with a few cards I have to make for the weekend....
I have got parents night for my youngest tonight and he managed to get the appointments spread all over tthe place so will most likely be there for hours, after that got to rush into town and buy laptop for son number 2, hes been saving since starting work just over a month ago and now ready to splash the him I'm really proud of him making such an effort and not wasting his hard earned cash.....not like older brother who gets it and spends
Then if I'm not too knacked after that going to the quiz night at the pub with son number 1....Ive been head hunted after watching the weakest link and eggheads.....he's realised that his mum does have a brain of some thinks thats it for just now. Hope all is well and dandy in your neck of the woods....hugs............

Chilly Stonehaven

Woke up this morning to snow on the ground but I went for a shower, blinked and it was
Not been online much because I hurt my back doing the daftest of things....don't ask!!
Now trying to get back to normal after hurting my back and being away to Blackpool for a few days, came home and have caught up on all the washing, now might have some time to make cards.....
Went to the craft show in Glasgow on the way back up the road from Blackpool, the weather was horrendous travelling up the road so my time was limited at the show. I did manage to grab a few bargains though and will be trying them out this space for all my goodies..
