Sailing Boat

Hi,

Well what can i say - Amazing weather and we've won the Men's Wimbledon final for the first time in 77 years - i got to see the last game and a half, as we had gone out to buy Alan a new / second-hand car.
I'm so glad this week has arrived as i was so busy last week - Friday night i babysat for my friend, then on Saturday the local Arthritis group had a garden party, then in the evening i drove to Horsham for a meal out with my friend and 13 other people to celebrate her 40th Birthday and i was so shattered by the time i got home.

Today's image is fast becoming my favourite LOTV image - or is it the fact that i'm just so in love the fabby Maja Designs - 'Life By The Sea' papers - note to one's self to check out some more of this company's papers, the sentiment is 'Sentiments 4 You', Ribbon is Making Memories - 'Sam' (how appropriate !!) and the star brads are from my stash.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Patriotic', so as i'm British, i went for 'Red, White and Blue'

Lili's Little Fairies - where the Challenge is 'Red, White And Blue'

Totally Papercrafts - where Challenge No: 174 is 'Let's Hear It For The Boys'

Sweet Sketch - where they are up to Sketch No: 213

Crafty Ribbons - where Challenge No: 51 is 'Birthday Boy'

Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 276 is 'Stars & / Or Stripes'

Cards For Men - where Challenge No: 14 is 'Bingo' - I went for the middle row : Metal - Brad / Stamped Image / Ticket - Sentiment


Image - LOTV - 'Sailing Boat'
Papers - Maja Designs - 'Life By The Sea'

Ribbon - Making Memories - 'Sam'
Star Brads from stash

Gorgeous card Sam - love the LOTV image - I can see why it's a fav!!! And the DP's are fabulous - perfect for the image.
Sounds like you had a busy week hun - but sounds lots of fun too.
We went to buy a new car for me yesterday too - but decided on a second hand one instead - I get it on Weds and can't wait!!! But we did manage to get back in time for the start of the tennis - what a match - so glad he won :o)
Have a fab evening
