If you are viewing from one of the smaller countries or less known for their love of card making then I would love for you to leave me a message and make me believe the list is really real
I will close the "I never thought" competition tomorrow morning and then I will choose the best response. Thank you to all that have taken part. I agree with most things you have written.
My parents came back from Portugal yesterday, I went to see them today. They had a nice time, although the weather wasnt really great for them, it was sunny some days but they had days of rain and cloud. Just goes to show you just never know what its going to be like. they have been going to Portugal for many years at the same time of year and this is the worst weather they had. So much for global warming hey?

What did you think you would never be re-purchasing or purchasing for the first time?
Mine are :
I never thought I would be stealing my decorative scissors back off my 4 year old!!
I never thought I would be buying felt to make felt flowers with my cuttlebug.
I never even thought I would own a die cutting machine
SO please do post your "I never thought" on here. I will put together some pritty felt flowers and some plasma flowers for the best one :) UK, USA or whereever I will post worldwide.
CLOSED - NOW DRAWING NAME !

My clever little man. If I catch it on video I will share the link.
Today, I decided I needed to add two new members of the family.... Hmmm.. one would think, OK 2 dead fish, means 2 new fish?! Yeah, that would be the logical thing to do.... but nope, I was thinking cuter and cuddlier than fish.... and we are pleased to welcome. LINNY AND TUCK to the Counsell family.... those with young kids will recognise the names as two of the WONDERPETS! Yeah, we have named our two little guinea pigs after a guinea pig and a turtle! Ha ha They are cute as can be, I have always loved guinea pigs, these are two little boars, only about 7 weeks old.... Linny is white with black and tan, Tuck is black and white. When they have settled in I will share a photo. I just wanna hug them all the time, but I am being "adult" and am letting them settle in although its killing me!
I LOVE this card. It wasnt my idea to put the monkey in a grass skirt, thats Stampendous that did that, but how cute is he?
I love the sunset and the orange card. This was so easy to make and fun all the way.
Here are a few family pictures. Most days were spent in the pool, we didnt need to leave Darrens parents place. It was lovely.
My Baby boy Caiden celebrated his first birthday in Spain on 15th June. We had a little tea party to celebrate with lots of cakes and yummy things to eat.
We went to the park one evening. Harvey spotted a ride on car and we put both boys on it. Got some cute pictures of them together.
I will add more photos later. I dont want to loose all this info and its doing me head in how when you add the photos it jiggles and text about and you have to keep editing it!! ARGH!!
One thing, UK people, if you want these monkeys contact the Glitter Pot on http://www.theglitterpot.co.uk/ and tell them I sent you! They dont stock all of them, BUT they will certainly add to their order. Once again, please do tell them I sent ya!

See you on 17th we're not gone for long! I'll miss the blogging, emails and internet but I hope I can get some card bits made, I ovbiously cant take everything so will probably just colour some images and make some elements for my cards so I can complete them when back here ;)

This is my cricut table and 12 x 12 racking. I am terrible at keeping my papers tidy in this rack and really havent worked out a good system using this yet!
This is my second bookcase. On here I have my SU sets, storage for fibres, tag maker discs, fastenator staples and loads more stuff. This is the messier side of the room :)
I love Fluffles the cat, today was a time to revisit a few things including my furry friend. The other was my scalloped scissors. I long ago gave or threw all my decorative scissors away but since scallops are "in" I had to go out today and buy another pair! So I felt like making a card and using the scissors and saw my little fluffles stamp sitting on my stamp rack that is infront of me on my desk. I also purchased this weekend a Sizzix pad and new cuttlebug folder so I managed to work these into the card as well.
OK so I need more practise with the spacing on the scallops but I was kinda pleased with how this card turned out.

Had a fantastic day yesterday, went to worthing beach for the day with Harvey, Caiden, my friend Karen and Harveys friend Adam and his little sister Isobella. We all jumped in Karens people carried and set off at about 11am, we had a lovely time on the beach, Harvey paddled, I did for a little while but the water was soooo cold! I spent the rest of the time telling Caiden "spit it out" ..... Hmmm pebble beaches and almost one year olds do not mix! He must have sucked every pebble in a one foot radious!
We got back home just gone 5pm. Then it was a rush for me to get ready for an evening out with the girls. It was a "old Barny" meeting a bunch of talented Tutors who I used to work with at the Craft Barn. Corinne, Annie, Julie, Carol, Laine, Jane, Kim and Myself. We had a lovely time, chatting eating and laughing. Annie is leaving to live in Guernsey, we all wish her a fantastic life out there! There was much talk of meeting out there, B&B and crafting, this would of course be fantastic, watch this space....
On a totally different note, but going back to snap stamps a lady called Mary on the message board was willing to sell me her set. But another lady called "brooksmini" emailed me and told me that www.capturethemagic.biz had then in stock and the best thing is they are in the UK so that will save me the postage. So I emailed Mary, explained the situation, I told her if she still wanted to sell them then to post on the cricut shopping forum as I know there are lots of people in the USA wanting them. Anyway, I ordered my set from CTM and hope to ge them next week. So any UK peeps wanting them I suggest running over to CTM and ordering them now, their stocks are quiet good at present but I suspect there will me a rush for them soon! Oh and I "hope" to get something made with them this weekend, but its a busy one. More about that later.
Have a fantastic day everyone! Make the most of that sunshine. Caz

Players are :
I need you all to email me your addresses - to email@example.com and I will sort the materials out this weekend. If anyone wants to drop out because they dont want it to be so big let me know and I will take your name off. I will be sending a stamped image, paper and maybe some ribbon and other bits... Its going to be fun! Once you have completed your card you will need to scan it and email to me, where possible if you have a blog post it on the blog also so I can link them all to my blog so people can enjoy seeing what WE have done.
How fantastic is that?? :-D
