Just walking down the street.

Hi there,

Sorry I've not been around for a while - I've had to cover at work whilst my colleague was on holiday and also been getting my daughter ready for her first day at school. Emma has been buzzing for the last two years waiting to attend and the day finally arrived.

My cardmaking had taken quite a back seat for a few weeks, so now hopefully I can start to have my own regular playtime! lol

My card today, I have been trying distressing papers. Still have to get a little more heavier handed with my craft knife or invest in a distresser as on the card, it doesn't look like I have done much!

I think the weather has influenced my image and colour scheme ! - where was the summer?

Still not sure on colouring of black hair. I found the following challenges that it fits into:-

TOMIC - Browns and Creams.
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes.
Simon Says - use a song or film title as inspiration (can not think of the title but it goes ... here she comes just a walking down the street) ..!
Cute Card Thursday - Anything goes.

WOW - my first trip to Harrogate - what have I been missing .... me and two buddies took the 2 hour drive and were astonished. Elaine had told me ages ago how good it was and other bloggers had been saying that they were going. I thought that I may see on or two of you there .... nah, blind as a bat me..... too busy buying goodies and having my buddies say .... have you seen this ...... just look at that ...... wow must have one of these .... and half my time kneeling to get to see things! I did managed to see one or two demos. With being tall, I was at the back and still managed to see! Think that this will definitely be an annual outing now. How did your shopping do if you went there, what was your best buy?

Anyway that is it for me for now,



  1. I hope Emma enjoyed her first day at school..I'm sure the novelty will wear off soon enough!
    She is a really pretty little girl too.

    Beautiful card, the colours are gorgeous.

    Naughty you!! You should've said you were going to Harrogate and we could've met up for a coffee..I don't bite, promise!
    I thought it was a LOT quieter this time, which is good in my book, less queuing up!
    I didn't buy that much, some paper pads, punches and a few nesties. So spill the beans and tell what you bought too!

    Love Elaine xxx
