Merry Mac!

Hello there, thank you for visiting me much has been going on here recently, which hasn't left me with a lot of blogging time so I hope there are still some of you out there.

So, Saturday saw the day I've been dreading for the last few months....actually no, for the last 19 we took Megan off to Uni. Gosh, what a day that was, it was so hard to drive away and leave her there, we generally get on ever so well, and I am blessed to have such a special daughter. We had a few tears in the car before we even left our driveway but that was on the back of saying goodbye to the dogs. She isn't the most outgoing of people, and it can take her a while to come out of her shell, and she also suffers with a "nervous tummy" which unfortunately has played her up a little over the first few days. But she is getting on well with some of her new flat mates and people on her course, so I keep reminding her (and myself!) - Baby steps!!!

I was lucky enough to have an evening out with her last night, as she'd treated herself to tickets to see Wicked (again!!!) 4th time for her and 3rd for me, but it was the 10th anniversary of the London show, and it was a marvelous evening. The encore featured many former members of the cast, which was real treat.....If you have never seen this show, I would highly recommend!

Anyway, back to today's card, and I decided to find a sketch to kick my mojo into gear.........
Today's card features:

  • Christmas Mac from Digistamp boutique
  • coloured with promarkers
  • papers are random scraps "from the box"
  • dovecraft doily
  • original sizzix parcels die
  • LOTV mini sentiment
  • pearls from stash
I have a few challenges that I'd like to enter......
Passion For Promarkers - spots and/or stripes

Going to finish now, as I've got to take Cameron off to the orthodontist, bye for now xx

Saturday 10 September 2016


Hope the weekend has started well, it has been a busy few weeks here for me, so a bit of a lack of blogging time. I have been making the most of spending time with my daughter before she heads off to start a new adventure in two weeks. She did really well in her A levels and will be studying Mathematics at University of Hertfordshire. Massively proud of her, at what she has achieved but am obviously feeling emotional about her leaving too......we have had lots of shopping trips, coffee shop afternoons, walks out with the dogs and movie afternoons! Will miss her enormously, but if I'm honest our bank account could do with a little recovery time, lol

Ok, so I'm not entirely sure that Monochromaticalness is actually a "thing" or indeed a word, but we'll go with it, as it I think it sums up the new Crafty Friends Challenge
the theme is
