Stamptacular Sunday & Charity News

Good morning everyone, sorry I have been a bad blogger lately.  Been a bit busy with some work for the charity which I shall tell you all about.  The housework is done, the wee jobs out the way so the rest of the day is my own and I am planning to play.  You lucky lot might be experiencing the warm sunshine but I have a cloudy, but dry, sky here so it is a good enough excuse not to go

Anyway, I thought I better post a card while I am gabbing on, It is a little quick card which suits the challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday - "A Penguin Celebration", unfortunately I didn't have a penguin so instead I used the black & white theme. The flower stamp is a Penny Black and the papers are from my never ending scrap pile.  My printer is broken again, so I am back to using peel-offs and pre-printed sentiments at the moment.

With the Brionni Trust work.  We finally managed to get the JustGiving link up and working as we have quite a few events planned for this year.  I can't believe this will be our 10th year going.  We have planned our 10th Anniversary sponsored walk on the 5th June which is what we originally started with - I can't believe though I am travelling back from holiday that day (bad planning!!!!!)  It is a such a great day and Brionni usually makes sure that the sun is shining for us. 

We have another Race Night organised for a few weeks time on the 8th May so I was busy trying to make the programmes up - that's when the printer broke!!!!   The day after the walk we have a craft stall at the Scribbler's Picnic in Stirling on the 6th June - again that it such a fantastic day (It is like a mini music festival with loads of bands playing) - but the weather is a bit temperamental  there so fingers-crossed..  The girls will have sore legs from the day before but they won't mind soaking up the atmosphere in the deck chairs - as I say - it is a great day there.  We have some lovely peeps giving up their time and energy and running in the Edinburgh Half Marathon on our behalf in July - good luck to them - and finally we do have other charity stall dates still to advised and a band night again later on in the year.
