Three guesses... to what I was doing yesterday and I bet you'll NEVER guess. Nope, uh uh, not even close! Give up? I was ironing OUTSIDE!!! Yes...summer finally arrived in Scotland yesterday...albeit briefly as today is overcast and much colder :-( I dropped Sharon to the airport in the morning and after a coffee and good-byes (we had a fab 2 weeks)  headed home, took the dogs to CB where it was roasting...poor Rocky and Ruby were panting like mad. The plan then was to 

go home and craft but knowing that we might not get another day as nice (point proven today) decided to kill two birds with one stone and do my ironing and get a tan at the same time!!! I'm pleased to say that after 3 1/2 hours my ironing was finished and I had a nice glow lol.

Friends of ours daughter got married a few weeks ago and this is the card I made...

Normally I personalize wedding and baby cards and I can't for the life of me think why I didn't with this one...I like it but it's definitely missing the personal sentiment. I used Just Married from the Love & Marriage digi collection, coloring it with my Copics

After the wedding invitations and place cards I said I didn't want to see another pearl forever lol but thought they were perfect for the felt flowers

I'd like to enter the following challenges...

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge - Let's Not Be Square
Top Tip Tuesday - It's All About Circles 
Crafts and Me Challenges - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Wedding/Anniversary

I didn't quite head straight home after I dropped Sharon off at the airport. Craft World is only minutes away and I thought it would be extremely rude of me not to pop in lol.  I hadn't been in since before the wedding and haven't bought anything crafty for even longer so after a quick catch up with June, Gail and Florence I picked up a few things....

I'm a sucker for paper pads and saw this one from Dovecraft...chocolate, mint and pink ... gorgeous {sigh}. CW had some new Die-namics dies and when I saw the corners I grabbed them. I've been looking for a good leaf die for ages...a lot of them are quite detailed and when using felt are quite frail but these ones will be perfect...I hope. A couple of sheets of Nitwits pp and 2 rolls of removable tape completed my shop :-D The trick is trying to find the time to play with it now. I have a few birthday cards (read that as late birthday cards lol) to do so might just use my new stash for them.

Ok, I'd better get this posted. I started this at 10 am this morning and it's now 14:52!!! No I'm not a slow typist lol...just too many interruptions!

Catch ya later x
