Hi all you fabulous peeps! It's our weekly 'just for fun' challenge over at Sweet Stampin and the theme this week is 'Layer's'. I have used one of the new digi images from LOTV and I think she is just adorable! The backing papers 'Bonnets & Bowties' also from LOTV now (but sadly they no longer sell paper pads) but you can buy them from Nitwits Collections. So pop over and join in and see what the other teamies have made.
Well it's been back to miserable weather for the past couple of days. Lot's of rain and wet dogs! but at least the lawn has had a good drink. It's funny how the 'boy's' love the sea..and their paddling pool..but do they want to go out for a walk in the rain???? no chance lol so a little persuasion is needed. Everything here is nice and rosy (don't want to tempt fate) the 'hubster' is doing really well and me too..accept for the old aches and pains that is. Hope you are all doing fine and if any of you need some extra hugs here you are ..hugglesssssssssssss ...toodles for now Sue xxxxxxxxxxx

Just a quick post to show you all the great card that Ollie and Woody made for Father's Day LOL!! I hope all of you wonderful peeps have been okay in this heat...oh my goodness it's been so energy sapping but at least the garden is looking lovely right now..so we have been sitting out when it's been a lot cooler on an evening and the 'boys' have been loving their paddling pool and iced treats. My youngest brother lives in East Sussex and it's been even hotter down there! Lots of huggles to you all ...........Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

It's our weekly 'just for fun' challenge at Sweet Stampin and the theme is Monochrome...hmmm I found this one a bit hard lol Not sure the brain was in full swing after Stamp Magic at Doncaster and meeting up with my partner in crime Sue P !!!! So I chose one of the new printed image sheet from LOTV and because you have to 'stamp' something on I stamped the sentiment:)))
Had a lovely day at Doncaster...Mrs P looked really well and so did her hubby Graham...we never shut up lol of course we left the two 'hubsters' to chat while we got on with the job in hand that was buying lots of crafty goodies...but apart from cardstock and of course LOTV which I adore hmmm and some pinflair oh and whimsy stamps that was about it. Watched the lovely Faye colouring ! she is so sweet and her work is stunning...told her to say 'hello' to Mrs A from us both :)))))) but it was so sad to say bye to our friends..but we will be meeting up soon!!! I hope all your beautiful peeps are keeping well...lots of huggles to you all xxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi all you fabulous peeps! it's time for our weekly 'just for fun' challenge at Sweet Stampin and the theme is 'Use Some Old Stash' ...so I have used this cute little Penny Black stamp that I bought oodles and oodles ago when I first starting crafting. So pop over and join in and you never know what hidden gems you might find in your 'old stash'
Well phewwwwww hasn't it been scorching!!!!! the 'boy's have been out bright and early when it was cooler and only for a short walk ..no running involved at all and then back home. They have both been cooling down and splashing around in their paddling pool LOL and we bought them some cooling mats so they have loved them. The hubster has to put on the highest factor sun cream because one of his heart tablets make his skin turn blue if he doesn't but he has been relaxing because it's been too hot to do anything. I got in the car yesterday and oh boy did that air conditioning get shot on straight away!!! I went to the garden centre and bought some more plants....so I think that's it now I can't wait till they all flower. Anyway we are expecting rain and storms later on we have had a weather warning of flash flooding but at the moment it's hot!!! so I'm going to chill and do some crocheting. Take care everyone and lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hmmm not much to tell really this week...at the moment I'm sat with a dye on my head lol needed to cover the grey bits up! The hubster is sat watching football so I had to record my programmes...don't they just own the remote girls!!! but I have a cunning partner in crime 'Ollie' when he's not looking I tell him to go over and pinch it...he gives it to me every time but won't part with it for his Dad:)))) I need to train Woody to do it as well then there's three against one...but at the moment he just runs off with it into the garden!!! Cut the grass this week and stuck my fairy back on her tree stump for the summer now we are having a lot more sun. Ornaments all given a nice wash and some little long legged gnomes that sit on my wall have had a new coat of paint....tomorrow I'm going plant shopping so I can do my hanging baskets and some tubs so I hope it stays nice. Well I'm off to watch the telly now the football has finally finished!!! take care everyone and lots of hugglessssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
