So, today's the big day......

For William and Kate, and 11 years ago it was also my wedding day, and whilst they wont have the pleasure of my hubby drunkenly singing "Flower of Scotland" at their evening do, im sure they will still have an amazing day...........and im sure they also wont have the awkward moment, the morning after when room service turned up with only one breakfast!!!! We were in the bridal suite for goodness sake!!!!!!!!
Anyway, enough of that and onto a card, this is my entry this week to the Less is More challenge, where theme of the week is "off centre". The gorgeous digi image is from Bugaboo stamps and has been a freebie this week..........woohooooo!

Anyway, sadly im off to work in a mo, doesnt seem right that the only person in my house that would actually like to have watched the wedding, has to work today :(

Hi all!

Hey all! Another gorgeous day here today, so hubby, kids, nippy and I headed off to the beach for the day. Had a fab time, at this particular place they have "installed" numerous keep fit thingys like cross-trainers and exercise bikies and the like along the sea front - kept the kids busy for ages! Did get a wee bit sunburnt but its not bothering me as much as the blister between my toes from my flip-flops.....grrrr
Anyway, enough of my rambling, made this card last night, and wanted to share it with you all. The stamp is from LOTV and is coloured with pro's, dp from a stack from The Works, ribbon and yummy dotty button from The Ribbon girl and card candy from The glitterpot - oh and I made the sentiment ticket myself! I used to love playing nursie when I was a little girl, so I love this image!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:-

Drip, drip, drop little april showers....

Dont know about you all, but we've had a couple of showers here today - where has the lovely sunshine gone? But still, it put me in the right frame of mind to make this card for this weeks Making it with Meslyn challenge, the theme this time is Little April Showers, Blue and Water. Off for a soak in the bath now, bye for now xx

Sorry if I keep confusing you all....

with my frequent blog makeovers, lol!! The little easter chick was getting on my nerves a bit, so I thought it was time for a change. Found this one, and absolutely love it, so I think this may stay a while! It is just as well that my "thing" for redecorating doesnt extend into my home - that could be highly dangerous for someone who works in a DIY store!!!!! Have a lovely day all xx

Happy Mothers Day and/or Sunday!

Hi all! To those who are lucky enough to be a Mum themselves or still have there Mums with them, I hope you all have a lovely day! For those of you that dont, then I wish you all a Happy Sunday. I will be visiting my Mum later, Cameron has promised me as many cups of tea as I can manage, and Megan said she will post me a message on Facebook - thanks hunni!!!! They had also got me a Harry Potter dvd too, which we'll be watching later. My hubby lost his Mum a few years ago, they were incredibly close so he finds today a bit of a struggle, so I do make allowances for him! Anyway onto some cards: Absolutely adore this digi from Bugaboo, I think he is called Deacon, he is coloured with promarkers, the dp from stash, birthday wording from a section of a bug folder (this is a fave of mine!) and brads added to complete! I would like to enter this card into:- Totally Papercrafts - one for the boys Digital Tuesday - for the kids catch the bug - anything goes Next up, and we ask the question "can Tilda do CAS?" - I think so!
