Eventing .......

...... with Stamping' Up in Northern Ireland.

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting up with other Stamping' Up demonstrators. We had lots of fun, ideas and craic. It was my first time at something like this and I loved every minute of it.

We had to make our own name badges ........

We made swaps .........

And I got to meet Monica .........

It was a fabulous day and I hope we can do it again in the future.

Sorry the photos aren't in the right place, I'm adding this entry from my iPod do haven't figured out the finer details of how to do that yet.

'til next time ........ xx

Flowers, flowers everywhere ...

...... now what else would you post on mothers day lol.

I hope all the yummy mummy's out there are enjoying their day and are being spoiled rotten.

Now then, such exciting news .... next weekend I'm off to a Stamping' Up training day. A first for northern Ireland I believe. Not sure what to expect but I'm quite sure it will be jam packed with activities and chat. And Monica will be there too, will be so good to meet up after talking for so long.

The flowers in the picture are for my swaps ...... can you guess what I'm going to do with them? No! I'm not telling you lol, you'll just have to come back next week to find out. I also have to make myself a wee name badge so I have a few ideas for that and again you'll have to wait to next week to see what I've managed to come up with.

Hope everyone has a good week ......... til next time xxx

Something special .......

.........for someone special.

Yesterday was my good friend Beverley's birthday. She is one of the "amigos" who i go on the occassional trip with. This is what I made for her :)

Aren't those wee bags so cute, they're popping up everywhare at the minute. Now, i'm not usually into that sort of thing, I normally just stick to cards ........ but ........ in my last Stampin' Up order i prchased the scorer for my Fiskars board ....... it works a treat and makes all these wee projects so much easier :)

The backdrop for the card is the gorgeous enchantment paper and the flower i just had to copy from Mummy Monica's blog. Isn't is delicious, and so simple to make. I can see these appearing frequently in my next projects.

I was out last night celebrating with the birthday girl so now that I have all my chores for the day done i think i might have a wee forty winks ...... sure thats what Sunday afternoons are for ;)

Have a good week everyone ......... 'til next time ....... xx
