Hi there peeps and I hope you are all having a nice day today xxx
It's that time of the week when we head on over and catch up with the Papertake Weekly gang and this week our theme is
… and quite simply all we want to see is a bloom of some description included on your card or project. This week we are sponsored by the Stamp Fairy.
… this is what I did.
Julie had made some gorgeous samples and I just could not resist buying a kit or 3!!! They are really good value as you can get 3 wreaths out of each kit and they are very easy to make .
Instead of making one to hang up, I thought I would make one and use it as a topper.
There are 96 gorgeous die- cut flowers, plus ribbons and chipboard wreaths in every kit and you simply layer them up and stick them onto the chipboard wreaths – as the meerkat would say, simples!!
I used a 6x6 card blank but I thought after (how flamin’ typical) that these would look really stunning on an 8x8 base.
So that's my card done for today – oooh that was quick for me wasn’t it!!!
Time for a quick bit of waffle then :)
Did you all have a great time at the NEC at the weekend? I went on Saturday with my Nicola and we met up with Kath and those fabulous Ribbon Girl's Andrea and Mary. After our usual catching up sesh in Wetherspoon's - it’s practically the law - we went for a bit of retail therapy and I'm sure you'll see the results on here at some point in the future as well as today!!
On Sunday, Kyla took part in her 1st Remembrance Day parade, bless her.
She has been going to Beaver’s now for about 6 months and she loves it. Her pack were included in the parade and they had to ‘march’. Well, I cannot tell you how excited she was. We walked alongside her and I alternated between having a lump in my throat and sniggering every time I looked at her. Her little head was held high and she swung her arms and marched along as if her life depended on it!!! We've taken her to the parade for a few years now and she knows roughly what it's about – or as much as a 6 year old can I guess!!. Thea slept right through it all – the Sea Cadet band, the booming Seargent Major, the lot!!!! They are both in residence tonight as Emma and Tim are off to see The Killers. Now if only Miss Thea will sleep right through the night in the same way, Emma will be very happy. Sadly I don't think it’s going to happen. She is like me and my Mum, she’s a little lark and wakes up quite early most mornings which Emma the night owl just about loves (not!!!).
We’ve had another mishap here – this time it was Richard. He stood on a high pressure steam vent at work and the steam went through his work boot and all over the top of his foot. How it got through the leather I don’t know but it’s very badly blistered and looks awful. The poor beggar - I feel a bit sorry for him to be honest. He even had to cancel his game of tennis which is practically unheard of !!!!
Right I better go and do some work but before I go, I have a little giveaway for you. If you would like one of the Christmas Wreath kits …..
….this beautimous black and white Elegant kit here , then just leave your name with old Linky and I’ll get Mr Randomer to draw the winner next Tuesday :)
Have the fabbiest of days and if you get a sec, nip over and have a moochie at the challenge.
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
