Living down South we had enough rain to last all summer yesterday or at least it felt like it, you would have thought I would have spent all day crafting, afraid not went to my sis and was trying to work out her video camera.

Look what I got, cool award from Tracey, thanks.
If anyone fancy a trip to Hobbycraft in Woking I can firmly recommend it or at least till they sell out of stuff. The few times I've been able to get to Hobbycraft it was alway half empty but I suppose cos they've only just opened it was full. The card and scrapbooking making is upstairs but there is a lift at the back of the store. I find lots of scrapbooking stuff I hadn't seen before from American craft, K&co and Making Memories. Some of the prices are quite dear especially for gadgets circut and cuttlebug, yet some were quite resonable. But it was noisy there was quite load music by the tills of all places.
So the second honeymooners are back today, I know this because BIL is cleaning carpets tonight with OH. These are some pics that my Sis sent to us on her phone talk about rubbing it in.
They had priority boarding, this was on arrival in Tiffany's lounge where Wine and a bit of lunch was served.Champagne and dressing gowns, don't you love the slippers.
On their balcony, it looks like it's large enough to have a party.
Hopefully OH is going to take me to the new Hobbycraft at Woking, it opened yesterday but OH was too busy to take me, I know the chains can be a disappointment but for essentials it could be handy.

And inside I made a little concertina book using Laura Ashley papers from Dovecraft.
And when you lift up the ribbon this is what pulls out, pictures of my brothers and sister with their other halfs, all dressed up in our posh gear for Damien and Rachel's Wedding last year.
Inside the bottom of the box is a blossom just to make it look pretty and I used the flourishes die from quickcutz and corner die for the cuttlebug.

I don't have any Halloween stamps, nor do I take pics at Halloween so why did I buy Halloween stickers from Poundland last year on my travels! At last, one of Kerry's stamps is of a witch and I just couldn't stop myself, the sketch is sort of based on Katharine's papertake weekly sketch and I used a piece of DCWV glitter card.
I'm such a lucky gal not only do I have some lovely bloggers who pop by my blog leaving some fabulous comments but they give awards too. This one makes me laugh, all I can think of is "Does my bum look big in this" and I'm pretty much sure my bum is that huge.
Thanks to Nikki (Bunny-Zoe's) and Beth for this great Circle of Friends award, everyone who visits my blog deserves it too, but a couple of Favourites Fran and Carole.

Isn't she gorgeous and we're not talking about my colouring but the stamp designed my Elisabeth Bell and turned into stamps by Funky Kits (they're waiting for more to be delivered). I thought they may be a bit fiddly for prisms and paper stubbs, so I got my watercolour pencils out. The hat cried out for layering and I use silcone glue so that its only slighty raised but enough to give it some depth. The papers are K & co and I used the amazing sketch from Katharine on Papertake Weekly, the border is matching paper using a Fiskars border punch which I had to blow the dust off after I managed to find them.
I've heard from the second honeymooners they're having a Fabulous time with champagne every day and Sis even managed to find a craft shop in one of the towns.

Now onto the Tilda & Co challenge to use beads, so I've used the dinky flowers I made ages ago that have beads has their centres. Paper pieced Tilda's dress with matching Making Memories papers.
Last but not least DCM challenge last Friday was for Animalia, I've used BG papers and bits of leather with a stampendous stamp of Giraffes the sentiment is a rub on, its a bit large cos it has to hide a messy blot.

Congratulations to my Sis and her hubby on their Ruby Anniversary, at this moment they are on board the Oceana visiting the Fjords. BIL has come up trumps by upgrading to a suite which comes with a butler called Andrew! The suite is full of pressies and flowers and I'm green with envy. Anyway back to business the above card is a Ladybug stamp designed by Rachelle Anne Miller as soon as I saw it I had to have it for their Anniversary. BIL has a thing about frogs and this stamp has Mr & Mrs Frog with their three little frogs and so has my Sis has three little frogs too called Louise, Mark and Timothy. This card I made for Mum to give to Sis using Joanne Sheen stamps love the elegance of these stamps .
This is the box that I made for the special project from a few weeks ago, I then had to make a box to put the box in so I could seal it.
Or the fact that if we so much has drop a flower from our baskets we would be for IT
Not too mention how slim everyone looks!
I think I did smile in ONE photo!
Ahhhhh don't they look sweet!
