Bad Bad Blogger.......

Okay, so not sure what went wrong but I haven't posted for over a month. I thought it was only a few weeks too..... doh!! So I have been really busy in that time, I have made loads of cards, 3 small Baptism albums for 3 people in my church who have been Baptised, I will post these in my next couple of posts as I need to made the picture sizes smaller.
DD is moving into her new rented house soon which is actually a house my aunt rents out. It has always been rented and never been empty, so as there is a month crossover from when my son moved out of there into a flat that he is buying and my daughter moving in, my aunt has been spending lots of money refurbishing it. So in the last 2.5 weeks DD and SIL have been very busy, kitchen gutted, papered, painted, new units, tiled and the new ceramic tiled floor will go down this week, new cooker arriving next Monday. Bathroom gutted, new bathroom now fitted and in the process of being tiled, we needed to buy an extra box today, hopefully that will be finished tomorrow and then the floor can go down in their too. They have decorated their bedroom, just need the time to get out and buy a piece of carpet for it, the babies room has been painted but as DD is the demon laminator and she wants laminate flooring in there it will have to wait until she has had her baby due in 3 weeks time, although they have been and bought it today. Hall is in the process of being painted and they have a carpet waiting to go down. The lounge was already nicely decorated, it is just full of decorating stuff at the moment. So they have been really busy and hope to move in this weekend just intime for the birth of baby, although unfortunately the lady they have been renting from has not even advertised their flat yet, so that means they will have to fork out extra rent this month for both places as they had a six month contract on their flat which doesn't run out until 3 June, very unfortunate as DDs DH was made redundant last Wednesday, he had Monday and Tuesday off to decorate, went back Wednesday and arrived home a couple of hours later with a redundancy letter, so bummer to that!!
Anyway, here are a few cards that I have made lately.....

These last 2 cards were made for the Sugar Nellie Challenge blog here:- http://sweetsugarchallenges.blogspot.com/. You can find these cute stamps here at www.funkykits.co.uk.

I met a really nice lady a couple of weeks ago, her name is Sally and she was interested in seeing all my cutting machines as she runs a crop every fortnight and wanted to invest in a cutting machine. She came here and I showed her how they cut and she fell in love with the cricut expression. She is now the proud owner of a cricut expression imported from US. Her crop is every 2nd Wednesday at Writtle College in Chelmsford between 7 and 10pm. It costs £5 per evening and you receive a free protective page and use of equipment and papers on your first visit. Just ask if you want more details as everyone is welcome.

I was totally taken aback yesterday when I received a gorgeous RAK bag through the post. No name, so cannot thank this person in person (IYKWIM) but if you are reading this, a very big thank you. The items are lush, they include ribbon, chipboard shapes, photo corners, metal embellishment, bottle top, fibres, paper clips and much more, thank you so very much. It is my birthday on Sunday, so I will look on it as an early birthday present!!

Off to make some more cards and break open my new SU stamp packs.... lol

Have a good evening all xx
