Another week over

TGIF!!! How did we get to Friday so quickly? I think 2011 is going to follow 2010 and fly by.

I hope you enjoyed the blog hop on Tuesday...judging by the comments you did :-D My DT really pulled out the stops on this new release and since TLT I have received some of the cards/projects in the mail to take to CHA. The pictures do not do them justice and I wish you could see them IRL. I know I say that a lot but it's true. Suzy Q was over this morning to lend a hand and I showed her some of the projects/cards and she was gobsmacked by them and totally agreed with me.

Apart from the blog hop on Tuesday Elaine, Annette and I were very hard at work. Elaine and Annette brought over the Cricut machines and we set to work cutting out more ladybugs/flowers/vines to decorate my stand at CHA (did I tell you I was going???!!!) We did the same thing for Stitches last year so I'm going to use the same cut outs plus more as the stand is slightly bigger and I'll have more wall space to cover. I  have a table which I'll be able to put the projects that can't be wall mounted on and I've decided I'm going to have a' card of the hour' and display a card on an easel (note to self: go to Ikea at weekend) on the table and swap it over every hour or so.

Back to Tuesday....Elaine cut about 250 ladybugs and Annette set to work on the flowers. I glued the ladybugs together, cut and scored the covers of the giveaway and stuck the pp on the front cover and the PIN on the inside. These are just some of the keychains we've done. I've still to glue the crystals for eyes (thinking I shouldn't have bothered with that!) and a bit more sticking but should be finished them in a few hours...I hope!

Looky!!! My Skechers arrived yesterday :-D I put them on straight away...I think I'm about 6' tall with them on lol. I love them but my kids think they're pretty darn ugly but I don't care...if they do the job (over 100 reviews can't be wrong can they?) and I come back with a bum and legs to rival Cindy Crawfords I'll be a happy Ladybug lol. BFF IM'd (instant messaged) me this morning asking if I'd got them so told her yes and that I loved them. An hour later I got another IM saying she'd ordered hers and we'll look like super models when we come back! I just hope that once the legs and bum is done they'll start working on the muffin top lmao!

After all that I do have a card to share with you. I made this back in November last year for a friend who just had her second baby. You can see how long these images have been in the making.

I'd been chomping at the bit to show you this card but I wasn't ready to release it at that time.

Again I've gone for another simple card with lots of white...

Sleep baby is just so cute...I love the fact you can colour as much or little of the image you want and it will look flabulous either way.

 Don't you love those little tootsie's sticking out of the blanket lol.

I want to remind you that Hayley is having a massive sale at Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn!!! She has 100's of gorgeous papers, flowers, ribbon and other accessories!

 I got some flabulous stash on Tuesday and yesterday for my birthday from two lovely friends and I hope to make something with it over the weekend and show you :-D

Think that's all for now...hope you have a lovely weekend.

Catch ya later x
