Help find Madeleine!

Our thoughts are with her family and friends.

Please remember she may have had her hair cut and coloured and may even be dressed as a boy - but her eyes will give her away - LOOK!!


I played golf yesterday with the 'girlies' - we all actually played really well (for a change!- we are obviously fair weather golfers) BUT when we got back to the club house - ooooo we were sunburnt (nice t-shirt style sunburnt!). We thought the weather was nice - but OBVIOUSLY it was a lot hotter than we had realised!!
So on with the long sleeves today - as we all look pretty silly - with lovely T-shirt lines!!
Sun cream next week!!!!!!!

It's here!!

Meet '?????' the Mini (Still undecided on 'it's' name, as now it's here I think 'it' is a 'girl' not a 'boy' - and it was going to be called 'Monty' the Mini)
I finally picked her/him up on Wednesday 16th, Ros kindly gave me a lift to 'Sunny' Scunthorpe, as Chris was working (only it wasn't sunny- it poured with rain nearly all day).
I am sooooo pleased with 'it' - I can't believe how different it is to the old one. Amazing - it just puts a smile on my face!! I LOVE IT!!

Lilac moment!

Oooo I've had a lilac the bug to makes some cards over the weekend. The only colour that inspired me was LILAC!
Two were made with peel offs and the other with my new 'Farmyard' stamps. I have used Sakura 'Stardust' pens to colour everything in....they are my favorite pens at the mo....but I have just ordered some more to try.
And I know you don't see many lilac cows - but you must admit she is cute!

Wedding Acceptance card - handmade

Handmade Wedding Acceptance card.

A5 card folded longways. I used off cuts of pattern paper (all in Pink, white and black) and used distressing ink on the edges. Printed the word 'Acceptance' on the computer using 'Adorable' font. Added the bear cut out (paws are on 3d foam) - purchased plain from the internet and added ink, chalk and pen detail. (I love these bear heads - anyone want details of where to find them let me know)

Welcome - family from Hampshire!

Hi guys!

Great to hear from you. Thanks for signing my guest book (although you appear to have landed in the USA? Just for eveyones info - they are actually in Hampshire, UK).
Is the little lad your sisters son? Emily is a splitting image of her Dad! and very grown up!!
Many thanks for Sam's birthday pressies - he is off shopping to Lincoln next saturday - to buy some CD's.
As you can see from the blog - we got him tickets to his beloved Chelsea. He had a fantastic time.
Sam starts at senior school in September - can't believe where the time has gone. What year is Emily in now?

Bye Bye Maynard!

Mini's time to say goodbye to Maynard! Well actually he's already gone (I'm using Chris' car)...and I have to wait another 3 weeks for the new's due off the production line 19th May.

I'm not telling you what colour.....stay tuned and I'll post some photo's when he arrives....'it' might even have a name by then.

'Maynard' came from black and red midget gems - made by Maynard - as the car was all black and red (even inside).

Digitally scrapped using Helen Bradleys book.
