It's the Weekend

Yippee it's the weekend, another week has flown by and it's getting darker and darker earlier and earlier! roll on the summer :).
We have my mum & dad, sister and her family coming over today for sausages, chilli and jacket potatoes before we head off to the firework display, I absolutely love fireworks, it's always me standing there ooohing and aarring :).

OH is doing a XC run today, I've a funny feeling he is going to get a little muddy :)

This is a different card from me today, I haven't used my usual Magnolias, instead I have used one of the Christmas Bingo Cards from the Handmade Holiday - Simple Stories Collection - I just love these, they came on a 12 x 12 sheet - 12 in total all with different headings on.

  I have used Adirondack Paint Dabber in Snow Cap to paint all around the edges and flowers, I have also painted the gold metal butterfly.

Tilda with Snow Heart

This is a quick post from me today, as I'm in a bit of a rush, nothing new there then!!

Here is today's little creation - Tilda with Snow Heart.  I think I now have the grand amount of 5 Christmas cards made!! I think I better get a wiggle on, we only have 46 days until Christmas - yikes

Don't forget to join in with aCaD blogging on FB, it's a fun place to visit and it's really lovely to see all of your creations.

Glassine Bag

Its a bit dreary here today, looks like its here to stay for a while.  I hate the wet it does nothing for my hair :)

I've been busy all afternoon, I've sat and stamped, inked and strung 80 tags to go out in the post!!  I've also managed to alter a glassine bag, I have kept it quite simple, although I have still managed to add a few flowers :).  These bags are fab for adding homemade biscuits or yummy treats, I will be adding the bags to the shop later.

I've got a zumba class a bit later on, my legs have stiffened up as the days gone on from doing a hill session with my running club last night, looks like I might be only moving my top half at zumba lol.

Hope the weathers better where you are.

Another card ....

It's another lovely day here, let's hope it stays like this for the weekend.
I have managed to finish off the card that i started the other day this is for the Card a Day Blogging FB Page.  When I coloured this little cutie, I didn't have visions of it ending up like this, I was actually after a very soft vintagey card and ended up with quite a busy card! never mind will try again next time.

White Dotty Organza Ribbon, Sparkly Curly White Ribbon, Roses, Cherry Blossom, Cones, Daisy Lace, Doily - Creative Treasures

Marvelous Mangolias is a new challenge blog which started up yesterday and I am very pleased to say that I have sponsored them this week for their very first challenge, if you love Magnolias hop on over to enter the challenge, you could be in with a chance of winning the goodies below.

Another thing to put on my to do list is to learn how to take photographs!! This time of year is a nightmare to try and get a decent photo or is that just me :)

I'm off now to make the dinner for this evening, I made Jamie Olivers Brisket Chilli the other week and it was delicious, it needs about 4 1/2 hours in the oven, Mmmm well worth it :)

Pulled brisket chilli

Enjoy the rest of your Friday.
