Hi there lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today xxx
Yayyy, finally it has stopped raining and there is a nice blue sky instead of the horrible grey mucky one that we’ve had for the last week or so. Rich is still on leaf patrol, bless him, but at least today they aren't quite as soggy and he has managed to clear the front garden For how long though is anybody's guess cos there are still leaves on the tress and they have to go somewhere when they fall off !!!
So it’s that time of the week when we head across the water and catch up with our friends over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week we have an
theme so it’s time to let rip with your creativity thingies!!!
This week we are showcasing Martha Stewart products . If you have them we would love to see them but it's not compulsory to use them if you want to join in :-)
As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …
… for one lucky winner to spend …
…right here (lucky girlie!!)
… this is what I did.
Again, like me, the layout is fairly simple!!!
There’s no colouring involved so it’s super quick to put together, which we like of course :)
I've used a Martha Stewart DECO FAN Shells Punch Around The Page and started out with a 6x6 blue card base. I punched along the bottom edge and then put a piece of 6x6 white card inside and glued it down. Then I cut another of piece of 6x6 card and trimmed about 1/2” off of the bottom edge, punched that and stuck it down on top of the card. Finally I punched a strip of blue card, trimmed it to 6” long, wrapped some ribbon round it and stuck that down onto the front of the card.
And that’s it.
Well girls, we live to drool another day cos the delish that is Dishy Dave is still in – I have a sneaky feeling that he will win it!! I was a bit sad to see old Rosie go because she is a loud, bossy, jolly hockey sticks sort of gal I know but I quite like her. She tells it how it is and she comes across as basically a good person as well. She wasn't so lady like when she was doing the bottom burp thing with Limahl thought was she!! I laughed so much that I nearly peed my draws!!
Not sure who will go tonight – maybe Hugo or Eric? We’ll see.
Right I have to go because I have to don my Santa hat and reply to the letters that Kyla sent to him on behalf of her and Thea. Kyla is still a bit scared of him because she is frightened of anybody who is dressed up if she doesn't know them. Last year Em had trouble getting her to sleep because she was so afraid he was coming into the house. Poor little sausage :( I’m not sure where she thought he would leave her toys!!!! She isn't so scared that she won't do a list as long as your arm for him with what she wants on it though!!
I am hoping that Thea isn't scared so that I can get to take her to Lapland – purely for selfish reasons of course lol!! . I’ve waited all my life to do this and sod’s law that I end up with a Kyla kid that hates his guts!! Well she doesn’t hate him but she won’t go near him!! So Thea is my last chance really, heeheeeee!!!
Right I best dash because I have shed loads to do today. I’ll be back tomoz with a card that is very VERY different so I’ll say tarra and see you then.
Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
