3 more sleeps ...

There are only 3 more sleeps until my Mam and Dad come home from their holidays and I am very excited. We usually spend most of our time together so I've missed them - lots! So has Haggis but we've been working on a suprise for Dad as it was Fathers Day last week but he was lying on a beach someplace in Southern Spain and missed it. Mary Fran over at NitWit Collections is just about my most favourite designer - I love every single kit she's ever made and I almost fell off my chair when I saw her latest kit, TailWags.

That lil' doggy looks just like my Haggis - so we used him to make Dad's card :)
His nose and eyes have been glossy accents'd and his tongue and little tag are both layered for extra dimension

For my Mam and Dad ...

... who are on holiday in sunny Spain. Just a couple of photographs of your baby to keep you going until you come home. He's missing you lots and can't wait to come and collect you from the airport in 11 days

For everyone else who was hoping to see a card or two - all crafting is on hold until my puppy duty is over!!

Packing Up...

The weather where I live has been glorious for the past week so why is it that it's gone from 26 degrees on Tuesday to only 9 degrees today with wind and rain and I am taking some of the children I teach on a residential holiday this week? If you are into thinking hopeful thoughts - or even doing a sunshine dance - please think of the 6 kids and 5 adults who are off to Kielder this week. I am trying to pack for all weathers but so far all I have is my fleece, my gloves and my blanket!
Amongst sorting stuff out for going away this week, looking after Haggis who is feeling a bit off colour (doggies, iffy tummies and cream carpets aren't a good combination) I have managed to make some cards

The Lilypad released their BYOC kits this week and I just couldn't resist this cute little submarine in Jacque's paper set.

Kate made some fab golf doodles which will be perfect for making the golf mad male family members birthday cards

And I nearly fell off my chair when I saw this house boot element in Krystals new kit over at the Sweet Shoppe so I had to use it for a new home card
