Infrequent blogger


I just don't seem to remember to post on here as well as on the forum! I have no idea if the visitors here are the same or different....so I apologise if you have seen/heard it all already!

Last week I took Friday off as it was my birthday, and I decided it would be nice to have a lazy day rather than working. I posted on the forum that I was doing nothing and Clare suggested lunch - so that seemed a good idea to me! I had already arranged to go to Bedford in the morning to see Sue at a pottery cafe called The Kiln. She wants to stock some of my cards as she has just taken over the place. She has some lovely new ideas and is really friendly so I hope that the business does well. Needless to say she was too friendly and ended up chatting far too much and was a bit late for Clare oops. We had a lovely lunch - and the weather even brightened up. I had a lovely lot of cards from the forum - which are now proudly on show.

Paul bought me my own DSLite in blue - so I can now play with Owen.....





I have been busy making cards - but nothing too exciting - as I needed to get some stock up. I made a batch of Golden Wedding cards - using the Robo to make the number 50. Was dead chuffed to discover that I could stick gold tissue paper onto card for cutting, as all of the metallic card I had was very thick, and I am sure the Robo wouldn't go through it. I stuck to simple designs - I do find if I go too fancy for this occasion they are not as popular.

I have also launched a couple of challenges on the forum - a pocket one and a Valentine one without red...so come along and have a play.

Owen is at the age where he has to choose his options - wow it is hard - and all of the subjects seem so different to 'in my day'....not sure how he will choose really

I don't envy Owen having to choose his options. These cards are fab - love the classy look of the top one. x
