I am doing as this stamp says and enjoying life. Am here in the sun in Spain with my Hubby, kids, Mum and in Laws. They had a good splash in the pool and it was FREEZING! I went in up to my knees. Maybe tomorrow?
I have made 4 cards so far. Its fun as its kinda of like a limited supplies challenge as I only brought a few bits.
Here is the first card.
Stamps are Stamping Bella from Dies to Die for, the paper, punch and colouring items are Stampin Up!
Speak later, gotta catch some sun.

So they are encouraging events and I thought Hmmmm I am booked every Saturday for June... How about a Sunday escape? Then I thought well I cant have hordes of people parking outside so I thought I would run small hour long sessions (pre bookable)
Come along for a cuppa, natter and of course make a card or project. Will make nice Sunday drive and Escape from the normal! You can come and meet my mad family and work in the Palace too! It will be a fun and relaxed card making meeting.
These are free sessions for 2 people so grab a friend and come for a play on
SUNDAY 29TH JUNE
10 to 11
11.30 to 12.30
1 to 2
2.30 to 3.30
I will be able to take orders and show you the items in real life that are including in the two offers (more info coming as soon as I work out how to add it!)
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and book on the Escape now! Of course if there are more of you in your little group I could take up to 4 each session but this would be if you are car sharing!

I had my class last night and that was really nice. Sat on tenterhooks watching the penalties on the footie last night. I wanted Chelsea to win, my Dad, dispite half his family suporting Chelsea and the other half Palace would have probably wanted Chelsea to win too, seeing that its a lot more local to us than Man U.
I got a lovely envelope from Stampin' Up! to congratulate me on going up three levels to Silver one and reaching my Stampin Start Programme. I got 4 certificates and three pins. I want to thank my customers and friends for helping me reach this goal and will be posting a special offer on my SU blog shortly.
Hope I might get into my Palace to craft tonight. I need to sort out what I am taking to Spain with me!
Oh and we might be getting a new addition to our family on Saturday, I will let you know!
I used a cute girlie stamp from Whipper Snapper, the flowers from Stampendous and Bo Bunny papers.
Got a busy weekend ahead, we are getting ready for a trip but I think I will have internet access. Lots to get ready. A party to take Harvey to, something to look at and maybe come home with! And I need to pack some crafting supplies. I hope to chat later with you.
Have a great day

You all must know Penny Black are my favourite stamps so it was fun to have two classes using their designs. Had a great bunch of ladies there, most of which have been to my classes before, we had a good laugh and craft!
I got this fantastic table top bin for my craft room. I saw these being used by some other ladies on a class at Crafts U Love and I had to have one! So I found out where they were from and ordered one...
The CRAFTY BIN is £7.99 with £2 P&P or local (Crawley area) They sit on the edge of your desk, the weight of the top part keeps it in place and the banded area keeps the pocket open and always ready for the scraps of paper, sticky fixer line, double sided tape liner and the odd chocolate wrapper!! LOL The designs will vary, but they seem to use bright and fun designs.
Harvey spent ages yesterday picking up little scraps off my floor, he loves new things like I do LOL
Contact details 07793 350605 or email email@example.com and tell them caz sent ya!

Here she is... simple but lovely if I dont say so myself!
Going to get Harvey in a mo, Caiden has woken up... maybe I will get another moment of "bliss" again soon.
To celebrate the fact that Diestodiefor and First Class Crafts are merging I decided to run a competition. Although I have not finished putting everything onto the DTDF website I am going ahead with the competition anyway.This is a one time only competition. Up for grabs is a 'on-the-go-tote' by AMM. This holds so much, it's just fab.Now as things are changing and I am getting lots of goodies in I thought it would be nice to give you an idea of what I am selling. So, also included in the prize are some examples of what you will find on the website.
20 sheets of 12x12 papers including Bazzill and Doodlebug
2 packs Craftime dress It Up
1 Creative Card Kit
1 pack sticky ribbons
1 pack fibres
1 pack of pale pink feathers
1 pack baby magic motifs
1 pack double sided tape
1 glue stick1 glue pen
1 pack flat backed bubbles
1 pack little sizzles - textures (leather)
2 packs rub ons
5 packs of stickers
2 packs panels
2 packs of blooms
a selection of die cuts
a pack of 5 cards and envelopes
a High Hopes rubber stamp (Bride and Groom)
5 metres of ribbona pack of tags
a pack of Craftime Alphanumerals
Wow, do you think that's enough?
Now all you have to do is make a card (so easy).Now with fathers day coming up I thought you could all make a male themed card. It doesn't have to be for Fathers day, just a male card from age 0-101, as long as it is made using anything listed in the prize. So for example, stickers, ribbon, papers. How easy is that. It doesn't have to have been brought from me at all. Have fun...
Rules:Please leave a comment to tell me where I can view your card. If you do not have a blog then you can email or even post your entry (if posting please enclose an SAE if you would like it back)If you have a blog then please link to here (the more the merrier)If when you are leaving a comment you leave a suggestion of what you would like to see for sale on the website, your name will be entered twice.I'm so sorry but I cannot post overseas as it would just cost too much (it's so heavy). You are still welcome to join in the fun though.This will stay open until 31st May and hopefully everything will then be on the website (yeah)
Happy crafting & GOOD LUCK!!

I used to not "get" images. I am the sort that wants the stamp, wants to stamp it out and colour but with the ever growing list of stamps I love, the ever growing bills to pay and the ever shrinking list of other stuff to do and lack of time I have enjoyed a few people sending me images. So here is a card I made that a friend Tracy sent me of the spring pack magnolias and also another card I made with my Shabby Chic stamps.
I coloured both of them in with Stampin' Up! watercolour wonder crayons, I do love to use these. These cards are a bit plain, I do try and jazz them up like all the stunning cards I see but it just doesnt look right when I do it.
Beautiful sunny weekend and a lovely day today. Took Mum to garden centre yesterday and she brought me a rose called "my Dad". I have planted it and at the moment it is just a bare stem so I have decorated the top with stones, of course in palace colours. Here is a picture of "my Dad" with stones... I have since of course spent much time rearranging the stones as Caiden enjoys fiddling!! LOL The rose when out will be a very large red rose so that sounds nice.
I just found a picture of how the rose will look...
OH and the Mums birthday is in May, all the best people are May you know!
