Well did I wake up this morning to a lovely surprise or what??? I received an email from Ashely, owner and Design Team Leader of Made Especially For You telling me I'd made the Top 3 in their Paper Piecing Challenge with my Nikki card from last week...woot woot!!! I enter these challenges but never expect to win so I am over the moon :-D Now all I have to do is figure out how to put it on my side bar and I'm all set lol.
Remember my moan about my inbox filling up with Anonymous comment emails? Well it's sorted yayyyyyyyyyyyyy! My lovely blogging buddy Jane emailed me with a solution and it worked. So although I'm feeling less popular I'm not getting anymore Anonymous emails :-D If anyone else is having this problem this is what Jane told me to do. Go into your blog settings then Posts and Comments then scroll down to Who Can Comment? and click on Registered Users and voila! I'd never changed my settings so I'm not sure why all of a sudden these emails were going into my inbox instead of my spam where they used to go. I'm sure it must have been Blogger when it changed things recently hmph! Thank you Jane :-D
The honeymooners arrived back on Saturday morning from their most fabulicious trip to South Aftrica and Mauritius. They look fantastic and had an amazing time though home with a bump. A nail in their tire meant I was back to one of my old jobs...mom's taxi. Ben had to go up North to Aviemore for a friend's stag so I dropped him into town to catch the train then Nicole was going to the corresponding Hen party so after dinner I dropped her into town. As Ben was staying over night she was going to come back and stay with us. I left the key out for her in the usual place but a buzzing in my ear from my mobile at 4:55 am told me she hadn't found it! I dragged myself out of bed and downstairs to let my giggling girl in...I had to laugh as she'd obviously had a great time and was a little more than tipsy but when she kept demanding chips and cheese I put my foot down and packed her off to bed lol.
Here are a few stunning pictures from their trip...
I'll never complain about my butt again lol
For some reason when going through their pictures last night I didn't download any of the stunning scenery from Cape Town but the animals on their safari more than made up for it. The last 3 are from Mauritius.
That's me for today...nothing crafty but I'll be back tomorrow with my DLS's birthday card.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you have a crafty week ;-D
Catch ya later x
