Let it Snow

Morning peeps, how is the weekend going?  Hoping to get a few jobs done around the house and then a relaxing afternoon - had planned that for yesterday but things never go to plan

The High Hopes stamp actually comes as a trio (but the reindeer image was used on my bags of reindeer poo) coloured with Whispers pens.  The circle sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.  Snowflake backing papers are from a Forever Friends paperpack.  Also used is square, circle & scalloped Nesties.  The challenges covered are:-

Hip to be Squared

Morning Peeps!  Woke with a spring in me step morning at 6am but never lasted long, have wilted already  never mind ... strong coffee and a brisk walk in the November sun will sort that out!

The fabby fun digital image and sentiment is from Bugaboo, they have a huge range of humorous ones if you are looking for something a bit different.  The gingham papers are from stash (on list to get more as it was my last scrap).  The faux stitching was done by my fair hand - can't you tell!! Also used was my Cuttlebug embossing folder and a Martha Stewart border punch.  The challenges covered this morning are:-

Things ... can only get better!!!

Evening folks, just checking how every one's weekend is going so far. Mine is going better as the day has gone on. Started badly as went out to the car this morning and ....... flat tyre ...... help! ... luckily Baza (aka Knight in shining armour) was on hand to change it over.

So now I was a running late to get to the Albert Halls, Stirling for our charity stall. We were that last ones to get set up, but we managed ...... even though in the haste to get the car packed up due to the above mentioned tyre we had forgot to pack the card display racks and boxes!! .... but with a bit of improvisations with cardboard boxes, tupperware and balancing we did the best we

At last, we could relax and enjoy the day, as every year, it is always a pleasure to go there and see alot of regular friendly faces from customers to fellow stall holders. Then ... crash .... one of our balancing display acts of gift tags toppled over and managed to spill coffee everywhere ... (mostly on my jacket ... thank goodness the splashes missed our stall goodies.  Then feeling left out, our jewellery display board started to get in the act by throwing itself off the table a couple of times when people went past! .... and  finally when moving the selection of gift bags across to the other side of the table... another coffee goes flying .... this time my cardigan got it!!

But after all that, it was still a good fun day and I think we managed to raise over £120 - woohoo!!! So now back home I have got my  feet-up and a wee glass of cheeky Red in hand getting comfy on the sofa to watch Strictly Come Dancing ....  come on Russell and Favia....

Evening peeps, hope you all are well here in Blogland. Nothing exciting to report in, I have been pretty boring really. Still no further forward with the mysterious water leak into the kitchen, so the bathroom remains ripped apart in case it happens again. Finished off some wedding favours last night that we, (the charity) were asked to do and tonight I should be really making a start on some "Reindeer Poo" for the sale we are having at the Albert Halls, Stirling on Saturday.

This card is a commissioned one that I was asked to do for a female bowler who likes a few games of bingo. The bowler is a Sizzix diecut with the bowling balls made with a circle punch and the bits out of a paper punchy holey maker. The bingo balls are made from funky foam and peel-offs with the bingo card being one from an old book. The challenges covered are:-
