Lazy Summer Days


Well yesterday i went with my son and his friend Chloe (from nursery) and her mum to Fishers Farm (never been before) and a good day was had by all - even though i lost my stomach a couple of times going down a helter skelter slide and a fake ski slope on a rubber ring with son on lap !!!!

I have a confession - i forgot to say last week i had done some retail therapy - craft shopping of course !!!

1) Went to The Range on Friday and treated myself to DCWV - Linen Closet Stack (12 x 12), i was thinking of going for the 8x8 but it was only £5 cheaper ??? and a 6x6 pack of Dovecraft - Back To Basics

2) Some online shopping at Angel Crafts (i have never used them before, but i was impressed with them)where i bought Pink Paislee papers ( had never heard of them, until i won the lovely Helen's  blog candy and i now i just love them), Kaisercraft,  Fancy Pants and My Minds Eye (So Sophie Charming) and it was even better as a lot of the papers that i wanted were reduced.

Right on to todays card - when i first saw the challenge on Simon Says Stamp - to use either gingham or plaid i wanted to enter it - but could i find either, till i had a look in a folder of my 12x12 papers and came up with 1 sheet that was made up of 4 squares with gingham ribbon running through the middle of it with button on - ideal, hence now the challenges i'm entering are :

Simon Say's Stamp - where this weeks Challenge is 'Check It Out'

Penny Black At Allsorts - where Challenge No: 1 is ' A Burst Of Summer Colour'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to sketch No: 110

Sir Stampalot Challenge - where the Challenge is 'Lazy Hazy Days Of Summer'

Crafty Calendar - where Challenge No: 10 is 'Summer'
