Missed You !


Well there seems to be an epidemic of Chicken Pox in our village, so to take me out of the situation, i have arranged for me to go to the school reception, and someone will take H to his class in the morning and in the afternoon someone will go and fetch him for me, on a more positive note, i found out yesterday that i had won the June Challenge of The Ribbon Girls (thank you ladies) and i'm so shocked and excited and can't wait to receive my prize, so i can start playing with it.

Normal service has been resumed today, with regards to the colour !!, I'm so glad that there are a couple of 'Metal' challenges around, as it gave me a good excuse to use some of the many brads i have !! I thought i would also try out my new Memory Box grass die, that arrived on Saturday - i have seen it being used on a couple of blogs including : Vicki (a very bad influence on me, as i also bought the small banner, after seeing what she had done with it). I wanted to use some green and white twine and out of all the colours i have, i didn't have that one, so i dropped H off at his party on Sunday and drove over to The Glitter Pot (about 20 mins away), to get some and whilst there i bought 5 PB's that were ex demo stamps and were on sale from £1 - £4 and a couple were Xmas ones that i thought i was going to have to order from the USA.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Simon Says Stamp - where the Challenge is Sporty / Or Patriotic - I went for Sporty

Crafty Catz - where Challenge No: 139 is 'Show Us Your Metal'

Here Comes The Boys - where Challenge No: 30 is 'Metal And / Or Embossing' - I went for both

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where Challenge No: 208 is 'Hot Metal'
