Snow joke and I'm a winner!

I don't normally enter challenges...only because it takes so long to enter all the links lol! I've only ever entered because Lisa keeps moaning at me so the first time I did I won a top 3 with Sarah Hurley :-D I entered last weeks project in a couple of challenges and it turns out I won top prize at
Integrity Digi Stamps!!!  Woo hoo...I've now bought a lottery ticket so fingers crossed I win something there!!

It was only Nic and I that got the train yesterday to get some lunch at Eat. The boys couldn't be bothered...their loss though it's not often my boys pass up a chance for free food lol. We hit the PO first then headed to the Deli. We picked the same thing...nut loaf in a tomato saucewith salad and Dauphinoise potatoes. Neither of us have had a nut roast before but it was absolutely scrumptious! I loved the texture and the crunch of the nuts. To finish we shared a piece of carrot cake and I had a cappucino :-D

It was a bit of an epic journey home as the trains were running late and the one we eventually got on was only going one stop then heading back into Glasgow. We were the stop after that so it seemed a bit unfair...we could have waited another 20 minutes for the next one that would stop but by that time I had no feeling in my toes (my fleece socks let me down badly) so Nic ordered a taxi to pick us up at the next stop and once there shared the taxi with another lady who lives in our village.

I had to go back to the PO today but it was a much better trip. No delays (though I missed the first train so went home till the next one an hour later) but I'm getting into bad habits. After the PO I headed to the deli and had a cappucino and a Belgian chocolate and walnut brownie. This snow is definitely not very good for my muffin top!!!

A friend ordered a boxed wedding card. I haven't made one in such a long time but this is what I came up with...

This is the front of the box. I used the Sizzix bride and groom die and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Down the sides are pale pink Swarovski crystals.

Lid off...

Again I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder and one of my favourite SU! stamp sets for the image. Ribbon, Swarovski crystals and the sentiment finishes it off

No glitter {I know!} but I used 4mm Swarovski crystals for the flowers on the cake.

My friend was delighted with the card so I hope the happy couple will be
too :-D

My flabulous co-ordinator Lisa {yes she who moans at me lol} has designed a new button for the December special offer which you'll find at the top right sidebar. Buy one one stamp get one half price, buy 2 get 2 half price and so on...what more could you ask for?? The cd tins are going fast....there are only 3 left so act quickly if you don't want to be disappointed.

The entries for the Challenge Blog are looking megamazing...remember you've got until 9am Monday to get yours in.

That's it for me. Thanks for stopping by :-D

Catch ya later x
