Home from Hols

Returned from a week in Palma, which turned out not quite as planned as my Brother ended up in hospital on his birthday so missed his planned party sadly. After 24hrs in hospital he was released diagnosed with blood poisoning. But the next evening he proposed to his girl friend Ali so all lovely in the end.

I even had some time yesterday for some crafting made a couple of cards this one for a friend, as you probably guessed….

These Pictures were taken the evening before the party at a dinner which luckily did take place and my brother sat on our table which was great .

The Family, Pete, Christian, Me, Ben and Sam.
Daniel was busy back home working.

Doily Days

 Morning all, I used my Martha Stewart Circle edge punch on this card which is very effective. Makes a nice doily. Also the fishtail makes another appearance.

Hubby and Me lunch stop about half way ish I think. Amazing views.

This was me as we set off on our climb up Benmore as you can see the coats still on, but it soon came off as we made our accent.

The rest of our party making their way, next time I go climbing I will definitely be taking sticks, as Alexander did, the youngest in our party. The ground was very uneven and boggy in places.

Sewing of the Heart

Done some sewing last night at Hearts and Crafts a lovely little craft shop local to me. Bev and Anna are great hostess and teacher. Bev has lots of nice material and paper craft products well worth a visit. Please try and support local business.

Here are a couple of photos of my daughter and me before we climbed Benmore, the coats were soon off as we started are climb I will post some more shots soon of the wonderful scenery as we made our way up. Took us 3 hours to reach the top and just as long to get down.

All kitted up with camera and tripod.

New Arrival

I managed to have some crafting time yesterday, so made this baby card for my friends, daughters new arrival. I used Pink Petticoat background. Stamped the baby feet and embossed. I used my die cut again for the banner which I am loving and using loads. Printed sentiment from computer. Looking forward to meeting baby Louie soon.

Back from Hols No. 1

 Just some holiday photos today. We have been to Isle of Mull which is an annual holiday for us usually in October but we had a summer one this year but will also be back up in October for the rally week. These two photos were on our drive around Calgary bay. Like the patterns in the sea on the first one.

Oh and what an amazing colour the sea was at Calgary Beach.

This one is the view from our friends new house overlooking Tobermory, they are so lucky to live on this amazing island, just wish it wasn't so far away.

Catch up on diet well it ceased while away but I intend to get back into swing of it this week.
The weather has been very changeable today Storms and Sun I did manage a bit of crafting today so will be back with some cards to show soon. Have a great week x
