At long last...

.....I have got round to making a card!!!
It seems forever since I had chance to go into my room and do something that I want to do.

We just seem to have been so busy with one thing and another - don't really know what!!

I have been busy though picking bilberries and making lots of bilberry pies which - I know I shouldn't say myself - were absolutely gorgeous!

Anyway I have made a card which I am entering in various challenges.

Here is the card:-

I am entering it in

Lili of the Valley Challenge - Fun & Games

Cute Card Thursday - For his eyes only

Allsorts Challenge - Free & Easy

Totally Papercrafts - One for the Boys

Totally Gorjuss - Punch or a Die
The Papers are from Stampin Up.

Thank you for looking and thank you to the new followers for following me.

Just in Time

What a wet evening it is today.

We were sat having our tea with the kitchen door open and it was absolutely bucketing it down outside. It reminds me of holidays in Scarborough!

Well I have a card for you tonight which will just about meet the deadline for the

Lili of the Valley Challenge - which is Pink & Blue.

I have used the sketch from this week's Sketch & Stash and I have used my new First Edition Up and Away papers.

I am also entering it in the Papertake Weekly Challenge - which is "Getting Cute" and I think this LOTV stamp is very cute indeed.

The theme in this week's Cute Card Thursday is "Circles" and I have two of them so I am entering it in that Challenge as well.
I went to the Craft Fair at Doncaster Racecourse on Sunday and thought it was really good - I wish I had more time to look round but we were going on to my daughter's at Retford afterwards.
We had to play at schools and my grandaughter was the teacher - it was very funny!!!

I have been pretty busy this week with appointments - the Osteopath on Tuesday, the Dentist today and the Hygienist on Friday. I have to say that I was very pleased when I went to the Dentist today because he said my mouth looked better than it has done for a while - that was really good news for me.

A few years ago I had to have a lot of treatment done - one 1/2 hour appointment each week for a year - due to going to, what turned out to be, a very bad dentist for about 10 years or more - but I won't bore you with all that.

Enjoy your evening

Hot Pink!

Well Hello, here I am at last with a card that I started sometime last week.

I have used the sketch from the Create4Fun Challenge

and I have used the theme from the Colour Create Challenge - which was Fuschia, Green & White

I am also entering it in the Papertake Weekly Challenge because the theme over there is Hot, Hot, Hot - and I think the pink is a pretty hot colour, don't you.
The papers I have used are from Pink Petticoat and the stamp is LOTV.

I have just been so busy this last week or so. Firstly, the Insurance people have wrote the car off so we have been busy looking for another one and actually got it last Friday.

Then we have spent most of the weekend looking round Nursing Homes for David's relative, Rene. The home she is in at the moment has not come up to scratch and the nursing part is being closed down so we have to find somewhere else for her. We have decided between two and left the final decision to her nephew in Canada.

Today my little grand-daughter, Florence, has been up so it has been quite hectic.

Hope you have all had a good weekend - I really will get round to looking at all your blogs!

My favourite colours - at the moment

What a funny day it has been today - the sun is shining now but we have had quite a few showers.

Still no further with my car and I am not right happy with the insurance people.

Anyway I have managed to build up enough enthusiasm to make a card for the Sketch Saturday Challenge.

Here is the sketch-

and here is my card.

The papers are from Nitwits - I just love these colours.

I am also entering this in the Just Magnolia Challenge - which is "Anything Goes" and also in the Allsorts Challenge - which is "Free and Easy"
Thank you for looking - I will have to go and make the tea now. I have made some wedges from the potatoes that I dug up yesterday so I am looking forward to those. We are also having home grown lettuce, radish and spring onions.

Mind you I think by the time I have done I could probably have bought them cheaper!!

C'est la vie!

Meri's Christening


Just had to share a couple of photos with you today.
The first one is of my son and daughter-in-law and my little Granddaughter, Meriel, who was one yesterday and got Christened today.

It was very strange because I was going to wear that dress last night but wore a different one instead, so I wore that one today (obviously!!)

Meri's dress was very similar to mine and she had a little pink cardi to match as well. What a coincidence.

The second photo is of my daughter and my other Granddaughter, Florence. I am so lucky to have such lovely little grandchildren.

It was a lovely day and everything went very well.

Further news about my car.

We had a visit from the C.I.D. who were investigating a robbery at Heckmondwike Co-op and apparently my car was used as the getaway car.

Busy Weekend!

Hi Everyone,

It is quite a nice day here again - it has been a good week really, weatherwise.

As you will see from the title, we have a busy weekend.

Tonight we have a rugby Presentation Night - and it is also my Granddaughter's Birthday today, she is one.

Tomorrow we travel to Newark for her Christening.

Here is the card I have made for her.

I thought I would enter it in this week's LOTV Challenge - which is Celebration.
Have to dash

Thank you for looking
