A long long long wait ............... xxx

Hey everyone
Oh what a day, our plans just didn't go right! The van was booked in for its service and was to be finished at 12 o'clock!! So we planned to go to the cinema and maybe pop over to hobbycrafts sale ................ NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! At 1/4 to 1 they phoned to say they wouldn't much longer, about half hour! So we thought that fine, we're lucky garage is across the road so hubby was watching! At 3 o'clock we were still waiting and then ........... hey presto the van appeared to go for wee test drive! So when it appeared back we thought, few mins and we'll get a call no no no .......... So fed up hubby went over and appeared back at 4!!

As you can see we never made it to cinema but we did go off to hobby craft for wee nose hee! So not that bad a day! I got £50 worth of stuff for £27, not bad for hobbycrafts I thought! I also made a good start on all my stuff for the demo! Only a wee easel card and gate fold card to make up with the Blue Peter "stylely" bits in a bag!!

As promised I took a wee pic of my thanks you cards I made on Tuesday or was it Wednesday?? Eh cant remember now ....... never mine here there are, sorry pictures aren't the best!!


Ingredients:
Cardcraft card stock
Basic grey papers
Ribbons, flowers and buttons all from stash
peel-offs to finish



I would like to enter these into some wee Challenges

MAWTT - New and old Stash (papers new and everything else old)

Tomorrow is our first wee craft club of the year, cant wait hee! We're trying quilling out tomorrow, as I've done it before I've dug out all the bits I've collected over the years plus a week book I got today for £4 to keep us going!! Stay tuned for the pictures hee!
No plans for tonight but probably a wee movie as we missed the cinema! Hmm do you think hubby would watch Shrek again?? Nah Sherlock Holmes it is!!! Mmmmm Robert Downey Jr mmmm so yummy oh or is it Johnny Depp ......... decisions decisions!! Oh so you know my secret crush hee! I do love Captain Jack Sparrow mmmmm ............. ok enough of that!! Who's your guilty crush heee??
Have a nice night whatever you do!!

Hi Melly. These 'Thank You' cards are gorgeous. Sounds like you got a bargain at Hobbycrafts, unfortunately we don't have any hobbycrafts near us. Enjoy your craft club. Mine's would be Richard Gere. Have a good weekend. Donna
