Haven't been doing too much crafting lately, just trying to slow down or stop on orders, so I can grab some time to organise myself for holidays.But, typical, I got some new stamps so I spent a lot of time playing!

With the weather so dreary, it was lovely to get some colour into the house and see it in the garden. The bouquet was from hubby for our 24th anniversary and the Laburnum is in full bloom outside. My Mother grew this tree from a seed and I just love it.

I did get one card order done for a ladies 80th birthday. I don't think there are many 80 year olds who don't like roses. so, I used some Papermania Signature Blueberry Hill papers for this card. The Rose theme was carried on to the insert.

A Champion Son

What a week. Robert's team "Dunshaughlin Youths" won the NDSL under 10's Championship and boy were they thrilled. They all got gorgeous medals and very importantly a CUP!!
They will be celebrating again when it's confirmed they've won the double. They still have matches to play but can't be beaten.
The proud team were brought on a noisy, horn tooting,flag waving tour of the village, and they loved it. Well done lads.

A few of this weeks makes

I had a couple of 16th Birthdays to do, so, I went for the covered chipboard numbers again.Very handy...they cover a large space and it's a great way to use up smaller embellishments. the wooden guitar is Jolees Boutique, as are the tux and wedding dress (I snipped the straps off this one)!!

PaperPlay Week 15

This weeks challange from Paperplay was set by Kate.
Rules: using real, drawn or stamped stitching.
I used mostly Making Memories Papers and frames, plus paper measuring tape from a travel sewing kit.
Thanks Kate - really enjoyed having a go.
