More sneaky peeks

Here's a few more sneaky peeks of the cards i made using the October kit from sarahscards. Don't forget if you sub to these kits you will also receive a stamp each month, all for just £11.50 a month.

Dublin's fair city.

DH and I had a wonderful few days away in the City of Dublin. We didn't manage to do everything, but sampled Guinness on the Guinness tour, and had a drop of Irish whiskey on the Jameson's tour, (at least we got our priorities right). We also visited Kilmainham Gaol, which was very interesting, and of course we had to go and see the most photographed statue in Dublin, that is of the famous Molly Malone.

Here's a few pics of our trip,

We're off...

yes tomorrow DH and i are off for a kiddie free mini break in Dublin. DS is eleven and this is the first time we've been away on our own! To say i'm excited is an understatement, but DS is gutted that he's missing this trip, but we've promised to take him one day. I still need to pack, colour my hair and paint my toes nails, then drop DS off at my Mum and Dads, and then have an early night ready for the off.
So by tomorrow lunch time we'll be having our first taste of the black stuff (Guinness) and seeing the sites of the City of Dublin.

Not just for Christmas

Last night Sarah advertised this kit on UKS, which will be on sale 25th October for the amazing bargain price of just £11.50! This kit was created with Christmas in mind, however to show just how versatile this kit is, i created four non-Christmas cards with it, as well as 6 Christmas ones. I can now reveal two of my cards in all their glory.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Yes i've been very busy creating cards for Sarah, i've had such a fun time with the kit she sent me, and made 10 cards, i just hope she likes what i've done. So here's a few sneak peeks of what i did with the kit that's coming soon.

It was murder.....

but so much fun. We had a total scream last night! I haven't laughed so hard for ages, today i hardly have a voice and my face and stomach aches though laughing so much. Everyone dressed up and looked fab. When we walked through the front door we were greeted by the victim laying in the hall with a stiletto through his skull, (just a dummy, made from pillows and cushions stuffed in a suit really, no-one had to play dead all night, lol). I won't say who the murderer was, in case any one reading wants to play this game, which i would highly recommend!

Here's Steve and i as Wilma and Marcus, doesn't he look a pretty boy! LOL.

Murder on the dance floor

Tonight there is going to be a murder! The weapon will be a stiletto heeled shoe.
Our friends are having a murder mystery party tonight, my character is Wilma Waltzwurk, and i'm gonna be wearing, a white ball gown, and a red feather boa. Steve is playing Marcus Hiley and he's gonna be wearing a bright pink, (we're talking BRIGHT!) and a touch of make-up. I'm really looking forward to it, and i'm sure the alcohol will be flowing freely, so i may be little delicate in the morning. Who knows i may even be the MURDERER.

Here's a card i made for my friends 40th next month, lucky girl is off to the Maldives for two weeks to celebrate! So i thought the tropical style flower was very fitting. Hope she likes it.

Postie brought me goodies!

I love my post lady, she brings me the most scrummy goodies, ( i just ignore the bills and forget that i've actually paid for most of it). Today she brought my prize from Leo, OMG, if this is a runners prize, the winner must have tought it was Christmas! Leo packed a jiffy bag with some really yummy treats. Thank you Hun.

Talking of yummy treats, postie also brought my card making kit from Sarahcards, it's absolutely packed with yumminess. I have ideas buzzing around my head already, so watch out for sneaky peeks of what i create with it here soon. Check out the current limited addition kits on Sarah's web site now, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Sarah for asking me to be the featured designer for this kit.

Runner up and peace at last!

I entered a comp on crafty templates ,(just for fun) it was to make a shaped card, i received an email Monday to say i had been selected as one of the runners up. Thank you Leo. You must check out her site as she produces the cutest templates, including some freebies.

Our foster child started pre-school yesterday afternoon, she was so excited, she goes again this arvo, so for two and a half hours twice a week i will get some ME time and hopefully get some crafting done.

Cameron went back to school today, he's just started year 7, so it's very quiet here today, or at least it would be if i didn't have L asking every five minutes if it was play group time yet. I'm looking forward to having my peace this afternoon.

Here's Cam looking smart in his new uniform.

I've been norty..

today i got carried away and ordered me a Cricut Expression from the US, well it just had to done, it was such a bargain. The machine was $275, minus 10% laborday discount the store was giving today and $50.70 shipping, so the total price in GBP was the amazing low sum of £151.61. I know i'll be stung by customs, ( i've been told around £40) but i paid almost twice that amount for my little Cricut this time last year. I was a little concerned what DH would say, but in the end i didn't have to tell him, as DS snitched on me the minute DH walked in the door from work, KIDS! He just laughed, phew. So now my Cricut is getting a big brother, he was rather lonely. :)

I've been bullied....

into putting a link to my blog in my sig on UKS, by Monica, (who is the most talented crafter in the world) so if you're visiting from over there, give me a wave.
Yesterday i had my crop that i run once a month, we have a lovely bunch of scrappers come along and we also have such a laugh and some even scrap!, and today one of my scrapping buddies and i went to a scrapbooking extravaganza at Hintlesham Village Hall, i don't know how it happened but i left with quite a few new 12x12 papers under my arm, don't get my wrong i did pay for them :). I plan to stroke them for a while, but will one day get around to actually using them.
