Well Hello everyone! I haven't forgotten you all...I have been busy nosing at all your wonderful creations that I haven't had time to blog...lol......so it's all your fault really you see! Welcome to my new followers too, I hope you will pop by regularly and say hi.......I love it when people connect.
So here we are starting the second week in June...it's summer here in the UK..........and the last few days have been better in the sunshine stakes, but terrible for the wind....! ( naughty, not that sort) It's battering all the little plants and the tall ones too and makes it still a bit on the chilly side.
Bolton last weekend (last one in May) was a good show and saw me part with some pennies so to speak....I did get some £1 bargains and some necessary bits (boring things like glue) and when I got home and looked I seemed to have very little in my bag considering what I spent! More added to the NBUS for the moment :)
The problem is you put it all in one bag to be green these days..... and instantly have less bags...so looks like less stuff, and lets face it a big box would look impressive, but not really apt for a small bottle of glue. Finished the day off meeting friends for a meal and a good catch up. Trust me there were people there with suitcases...suitcases!!!!! I mean think how many pennies they parted with...or perhaps it was full of a big box with a small bottle of glue! tee hee
Right before you get bored and move on ...a card...for my mum who celebrated 95 years yesterday! Yes she had me late in life being as I am only 21! hmmmmm........... Now thinking about it if I live till 95 my eldest will be 70!(work that one out).... yikes don't tell him he'll freak out! Anyway here is her card....
It uses the new Indigo Blu stamp..called Blue peeking which I stamped and embossed in wow superfine black powder.......what a gorgeous face this cat has. We had a black cat called Sooty when I was a child so it reminded mum of that. The background was inked with distress inks...tumbled glass,milled lavender and spun sugar and then die cut using Sue Wilson Noble Rectangles. Sentiment is computer generated and the rest from stash. Plenty of glamour dust in use though not obvious on the photos...sorry. Oh and the base card is adorable scorable embossed form Hunkydory. Quite pleased with the outcome and a change from a CAS card.
Mum had a steady stream of visitors bringing flowers and chocolates etc and we had a chinese takeaway to round off the day...lovely.
Well I have taken up enough of your precious blogging time so will let you go with the usual 'Thank You' for stopping by......and I would love it if you let me know you have been.
Take care, keep safe and well, and enjoy your week.
See you next time.
Hugs Carole xx
