Things are moving on here. Yesterday, I had the oven professionally cleaned - looks wonderful now! But I mustn't use it - so I'm going to be cooking on the hob and mircowave for the next couple of weeks!! Today has been really good - I planned some "me" time and arranged for my hairdresser, Debbie, to come round colour, cut and blow dry my hair. She's a fabulous hairdresser and I'm absolutely delighted with the cut and colour - it's going to have to keep me going until I can find a new hairdresser in Northville!
I managed to get into my craft room this evening and did some initial tidying - I'm going to be giving away quite a lot of the "scrap" piles. It felt good clearing it all out this evening. After that I decided to make a few cards. You'll get to see the rest later this week.
My cousin, Neil, has his birthday on Friday and I suddenly realised that while I've made lots of cards for my Aunt, I didn't have one ready for me to send to Neil. So I used the colours from this week's Colour Q - cQc126 challenge and the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL179 to come up with Neil's card.
I've used some of my lovely new stash from Stampin' Up! to make Neil's card. I treated myself to a set of SU marker pens; it made colouring the sentiment so easy! This card was so quick to make and I'm really pleased with it. And it's one of the most clean and simple designs.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess set), Sprinkled Expressions
Inks: SU - Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig to position stamps and card from stash
I also want to share with you a lovely notebook that Vicky sent me last week (along with my SU goodies - my last Stampers 6 parcel). She made it specially for our move to America - it's fabulous and is the perfect place to record our adventures.
Don't you just love the sweet little plane? I think the journal title is absolutely brilliant! Vicky really is very creative! Thanks so much for the lovely gift, and for all my super goodies as part of the Stampers 6 Club. I'll be back in about 3 years!
Before I finish, I'd just like to welcome my newest follower - Susan - really pleased you've joined me! Do join me tomorrow with the new challenge over at St Luke's Charity Card Challenge. Bye for now!
