Cottage Papers

I know I'm a bit behind the times but only just opened my cottage papers and put them to use. Just some simple little thank you cards I made for the ladies in my stampers 10 club, the sentiment is from "true friend" stamp set and the ribbon is ever faithful "old olive" and the papers are so lush they really didn't need anything else.

Thanks for visiting me,

Reach for the Stars!

Good morning to you all, or is it? The rain is coming down here, not too heavy at the moment so hopefully it will go off (fingers crossed!) Just thought I'd share a couple of pics with you, my youngest son caught in the act,

Now usually I would just throw away any scraps of paper or card but this time I decided to make a matching gift tag (normally I can't be bothered) and on top of that I even managed to get out my sewing machine and do some stitching too (now I've really pulled out the

Thank you so much to all my lovely blogging friends who have still stopped by to say hi, even though I've been absent ;) I really appreciated it!

Still Here!

Yes I'm still around and hopefully will be more often now the summer hols are approaching. I finish my temporary job on Tuesday which for those of you who don't now has literally taken over my life :( This working 30hrs a week lark just doesn't do for I'm only just starting to feel a little bit better after getting some iron tablets from the hospital, so this on top of the job, well life just didn't exist :( and crafting even less (OMG!) But good news is I've just been offered my ideal job as a school secretary, 3 days a week and term time only......Whoo hoo!!!!! Now what more could a girl ask for? I'm absolutely delighted and I've got all summer to recuperate (YAY!) as I don't start until September. They had 116 applicants and I made it ;) (very proud of myself) so this weekend I'm just going to chill - literally I think given the wind and the I shall be back soon with something to show, hope you all have a fab weekend.
