Family Weekend

I used Pink Petticoat paper designs on this card I printed it onto a shimmery silver card. Then printed the text over the top in a purple although this photo makes it look like silver. Added a bit of sewing, bling and some ribbon. This is for my niece whose birthday is at the weekend. I am really hoping to do some christmas cards this weekend. Although my son is racing in his gokart so ill have to go and support him on Sunday.

I had a lovely weekend last week, spent it with my Mum, Brother and Sister in Devon. My Brother was going for a visit so I hitched a lift and stayed with Mum. We went out for a meal with my Brothers Partner and my Sisters husband which was very nice and my lovely Brother treated us all. I will be meeting up with him again next weekend in London for Champagne buffet at The Landmark hotel to celebrate my husbands Brother-in-laws big birthday so more family celebrations can't wait.

Return from Trip to Isle of Mull

Just returned from our annual trip to the Isle of Mull, one of my most favourite places. It is very beautiful, wonderful friends and lucky for us fab weather too. This year my hubby raced in the Mull Rally he started at position 79, had a few issues first night but managed to finish in position 29, his first finish of the rally after 7 attempts so very proud of him. We stayed with some very special friends and the photos below are the views from there new home so exciting and so jealous.
I made this thank you card for Mairi our wonderful host she spoilt us.

Xmas Pud Workshop

Firstly a cushion I have knitted for my daughters bedroom, its was nice to knit some cable for a change. Think I might do some more as I got 3 for 2 deal on the chunky wool.

 Here we are at the xmas pud workshop at The Landmark Hotel in London. We had a lovely day we was greeted with a glass of champagne. There was 8 of us in total doing the class with a French chef and Italian Cocktail bar man so all rather yummy including the cocktail! We mixed our puds and got to bring them home ready for christmas along with a lovely christmas apron and Chefs hat. We then made our own egg nog cocktail followed by a lovely lunch and pudding tasting.

It was lovely day spent with friends and family.
A bit retail therapy in there too although crafting supplies.
Well I need to get packing now as off to mull for a week hoping that hubby keeps the rally car in one piece. Bye for now x

Power Cut

Last night we had a power cut for 6hrs from 3.15pm oh how we all rely on electric especially as it turns dark! So whilst deciding what to do I remembered I needed to make a card for Mums birthday fast approaching as I am away next week. So by torch light I produced this card. Mum likes owls so I used my new ribbon from Hearts and Crafts, where I also bought the tag as well. Quite pleased with the result. Happy Wednesday everyone downward slope now to the weekend and already October so might start on some xmas cards soon.
