Well HELLO everyone!!

I can't believe it is a month since I last blogged, life takes over and I had nothing crafty to share......if you are reading this then thank you for staying with me.

My card I do have to share today is a one layer card currently winging it's way 'down under' (I hope) to my youngest son who will be celebrating his birthday in October. Also I have used NBUS (never before used stuff)  that I have had in my possession a while (hanging head in shame) so thought I would hop over to Darnell's challenge with this card......


Stamps.....Uniko 'Explosive Additions' and 'Simply Said Birthday' (Happy Birthday)
                 SON from stash.

Inks         Memento--- Bahama blue and Tangelo
                Versafine--- Majestic Blue for sentiments.

Glamour dust on large explosions...not showing well on the photo!

So what have you all been up to? I have been popping in on your blogs and admiring all the wonderful work out there....makes me feel very inadequate I have to sat you clever bunch.

Hubby had a weeks holiday earlier in the month and we spent a couple of days in Watford . We visited the Harry Potter Studios...Wow!!...A-maz-ing!!!! and I was also lucky enough to be able to go to Ally Pally (good planning on  my part don't you think?).... and spend way too much money! Now I reckon I could do NBUS for weeks and weeks!!! and need a lot of time and motivation to use it all.

I am currently digging out all my Christmas stuff from my craft room so I can see what I have and get started on those Christmas cards! Boy I have too much stuff!!!!....and still I buy more!! When I say to hubby I don't really need this he just smiles knowingly !!...know what I mean?

Ok well hope you are all well and Thank You so much for popping in to see me. I will try to be a better blogger but I do want to get back into my cross stitch this winter and nudge it a little closer to's been a work in progress for a few years now!

Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend......raining here and hubby is out chasing steam trains at the North Yorkshire Moors and I am meant to be in the craft ta ra for now and if you leave me a comment I shall be so thrilled to know you have stuck with me.
