Yesterday at Sir Stampalot

What a lovely day I had yesterday.  First it was all day with Chris at Sir Stampalot (thank you Chris) and these are the thing I made.  A box with a drawer and a lovely decorated top and a nice little notepad.  The box took us quite a while but it was worth it.  Chris's Strawberry Cheesecake was to die for and I bought several of the new Molly Bloom stamps which are really cute - can't decide which I like most these or Tilda's - but some will mix and match nicely I think.

When I got home it was time to go over to some friends who were having a barbeque - I'm afraid I had too much Vino and felt a bit squiffy this morning - I told hubby I thought it was the hot weather but I don't think he believed me somehow. 

We're off to a fete this afternoon - I made some cakes to take with me but they turned out as flat as pancakes - not like me at all my cakes are usually very good although I say it myself - anyway hubbies been sent off to the supermarket to buy some and my son said he would happily have the ones I made!

Well cheribye for now - enjoy this lovely weather - Linda x

Bon Voyage

Hi everyone, I'm back - at least for this evening!  Been very busy with the family and our garden.  We've just opened a Caravan Club Certificated Location which is a site for up to 5 caravans for club members only - hubby has done all the hard work - me - well, paperwork - boring!  Anyway we have our 1st booking starting next week and hopefully we'll get a few more this year.  Take a look at the website which I've been working on.  My son uploaded it for me this afternoon but I need to make a few tweaks to it and add some more content.

ON TO THE CARD   I was asked to make this card for my boss and his wife who are emigrating to Australia shortly and came up with this.  I've used mainly royalty free clipart and a couple of rubber stamps.  Bon Voyage cut with my good old Cricut - Beyond Birthdays - and also the luggage label from Tags, Bags and Boxes.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Tea Dye and Tumbled Glass) on the tag and papers.  We presented it to them today and they seemed quite impressed so I'm happy! 

I'm off to Sir Stampalot tomorrow for a day with Chris so I'm double happy in fact!  Take care, Linda x
