Feeling a bit autumnish!

The summer holiday seems to have flown by, and Megan is back at school on friday, have been getting the last of her bits together, and pretty much clearing the shelves of my local Rymans - just how much stationary does a 13 yr need!!!
So, onto a card, and I've had this one on my desk since the weekend waiting to be uploaded. The image is another fabby Dustin Pike. As we head into the autumn time of the year, I do like to use these warm, rusty sort of colours. I would like to enter this card into here come the boys challenge, the theme is orange and brown.
Catch you all soon!

card for my friend

This was the card that I had made for my very good friend Kay (the Incy one) for this months Docraft Friendship Swap.

This image is a donated H&S, coloured with pro's and just a dash of stickles added to give the champers a bit of fizz, the dotty paper is from Fizzy Moon, the flowers are cut with a woodware punch and the buttons with a Nellie die.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:

back with another card later xx

Just a quickie from me....

First of all, I know I have a few followers that are living in the USA, so I just wanted to say that I hope and pray you are all safe and well. Have seen on our tv news the devastation caused by hurricane irene.

On a lighter note, am a happy lisa today as I have picked as a winner for Cute Card Thurday, wedding challenge, for the wedding card below, which I am soooo chuffed about.

back with a couple of cards later xx

Hello all!

Not such a nice day here today, but the grey skies did mean that I didnt feel guilty about opting to stop indoors and craft instead of throwing the mower around the front garden.
This is a card that my step daughter asked me to make for some friends of hers, this image is a pre coloured one from Lili of the Valley, and I think it is just super cute. The papers are from a Fizzy Bear stack, flowers are punched from my yummy new woodware punch, sentiment created on my pc. I would like to enter this card into these challenges:-
Cute card Thursday - weddings
GlitterFairies - pretty in pink
I've been thinking, that usually started my christmas cards by now, so I guess im gonna have to get started - things could get very glittery around here!!!
bye for now xx

Every journey has to start some where.......

.......and I've got a pretty long one ahead of me! Dont worry folks, im not off and away, well not all of me. After Cameron was born I decided to do Weightwatchers, I lost nearly four stone in about 7mnths and was incredibly proud of myself, however, over the last couple of years I seem to have found my way back into the biscuit tin and what I lost, has returned - and brought along friends for company, so to speak! So i've decided it is time to have another go, not going to an organised class as such, but I have some fab friends at work who I know will keep me on track and give me hugs when I need them at kicks up the bum where necessary too. I know this is an issue with some of you guys too, so I hope i've got support from you all too. So wish me luck, im so gonna need it.

Almost forgot to add - lost 4lb in the first week.

birthdays are like buses.........

....and September is one of those months when loads arrive, including both of my kids! So thought i'd better make a start.
This is the card that i've made for Megan to give to Cam. Have used one of the Lili of the Valley coloured images that I won a few months ago. This little chap is a wee bit younger than my boy, but they do share the same scruffy mop of hair, so I thought this would be perfect.
I would like to enter this card into these challenges too:
Here Come the Boys - critters
Card Makin Mamas - birthdays
Pixie Dust Studio challenge - boys will be boys
Birthday Sundaes - birthdays
Hope you all have a lovely Saturday, we are heading out later to hopefully tackle the dreaded "school uniform shopping". Got time for a bit of blog browsing now though :)

Found my way back to blogland!

Cooeee, Im back, Hope you are all fine and good! We actually returned home from Scotland on Wednesday morning and, being the domestic goddess that I am (really!!) I have been up to my eyes in washing, ironing and getting the house back into a reasonable state of order - apologies for my use of offensive words here btw, So I havent had too much time for crafting or blogging.
Trying not to be a total holiday bore here, but thought I'd share a few snaps with you all.

This is travelling from Perth to Aviemore through the Cairngorms - one of my favourite drives in the world.

This is Megan and Cameron playing with my step grandson. He was 3 in May, cant believe how much he has grown up since we saw him last summer.

You're not on holiday till you've had an Ice Cream, and that includes Nippy, lol! Rizza's of Lossiemouth - your Ice Cream is awesome.

I absolutely loved Lossiemouth - lovely little town and some of the bestest doggy walks we've done! Nippy and I loved the gorgeous sandy beach.

So thats what I've been up to............looks like i've got some catching up to do on here now, lol!
