Morning sweet peeps and what fabulous weather we are having at the mo!!
It was like a summer’s day yesterday and today is looking like more of the same – wooohooooo :)

So before we do anything, I have to let you know who won my ribbon giveaway – the post is here – and that
lucky girlie is ………………………………………..

Well done to you and if you email me your deets,  I’ll pass them on to Mary & Andrea and hugest of thanks to them for a beautisimous giveaway xxx  Thank you also to everyone who took part and there will be another one next month :)

So what do we have today then?

Well it’s  Tuesday so it’s Papertake Weekly time and as it’s the last one of the month, it’s sketchie time  as well.

I got these gems from the NEC on Saturday from The Hobby House – absolutely bargainous peeps!!!

I also thought I’d add a bit of  Magnolia Lovely Fence Die for no other reason than I just love this die. You can get it from Simon Says Stamp of course.

I did the inside of the card to match the front.

And there you go.

Well what a fab time we had at the NEC on Saturday. I went with my Nikkie and we had a good old bead shop :) 

All we have to do now is make something with them lol!!!

I love going  to the NEC but not for the shopping.  For me, the best bit is catching  up with lovely peeps who started out as blog buds and ended up as friends, and  we had a very nice lunch in Wetherspoons.  A highlight this year  for me was finally getting to meet Mary & Andrea from The Ribbon Girl. and they are both every bit as nice as I imagined they would be. The usual gang were there including Kim Piggott and her gorgeous daughter Claire who had a good old non crafty chat with Nikkie, my cyber twin Kath (love ya Mrs K xxx) ,  Heather (who looked fab following her illness last year) , Jo, Tab and Kim Dellow.  Thank you one and all for a super couple of hours xxx  MIA though were Mummy Fairy Jacqui and Chris Dark  but hopefully next time girlies cos I really missed you xxx  

Well did you see the final of DOI then? Not a shock that Matthew won cos he was pretty awesome.  I did feel a bit sorry for Chico when he nearly dropped Jodeyne – that could have been really nasty!!! But that’s it for another year and I do hope that for the next series they replace Christine Bleakely – talk about smug!!! It may be me but Phil doesn’t seem to have the same chemistry that he had with Fern or Holly.

So now it’s  time for BGT.

Ohh my life, what about that young lad then? It actually made me cry when he sang.

If you didn't see it peeps, here’s a little clip …..

.. is he amazing or what!!

And you just know that he’s had a hard time of it because of his weight so if he ever was bullied – and to be fair, it didn't say that he had been but I did wonder -  then it’s one in the eye for them now isn’t. I’m sure that this kid will do really well.

Right I’m off to get some work done and then later I am baby sitting Miss Kyla cos Emma has parents’ evening. She wanted to come with us on Saturday but my nerves would not have stood it – I’d have been terrified of losing her.  I had to drop her off bright and early so we missed the baking thing but I’m sure we will make up for it next week.

Have a fabulous day and see you tomoz and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny,
Another stunner from you today using the lovely LOTV image.
I am sorry but I have to disagree with one thing, I love Christine and just think it has been settling in nerves, she knew everyone would be watching her!
As to the young tenor, wow, wow, wow. I hope he does go far, that young untrained voice was stunning so can you imagine what it will be like with a couple of years professional training and encouragement? He could be the new Pavarotti in training.
All the best Linda
