Things With Wings xx

Hello my pretty people

Oh what s this darn weather like??
One day sun then snow and now today rain, sleet and hail the size of maltesers!! Well it is Scotland I'm in can't expect anything less lol! Maybe this time next week the sun will be back, fingers crossed!

Its been busy wee week with me getting orders finished and things ready for others! Even managed a trip to the cinema with hubby and wee naughty food treat too! Yesterday we spent the day sorted the garden, first day to properly weed and de-winter it! The sun was lovely beating on me while weeded, just what I needed!

Today sadly its indoors day! Ok not really that bad, DVDs and crochet with some card making is just perfect lol!

Going "Flapper" xx

afternoon all

I do hope you all had a good weekend and got to enjoy the sunshine before this wind and rain appeared again? We did! Off we went in the caravan for its first outing of the year! We had a blast!

What a view we had at Castle Point Rockcliffe

Yeah little me wrapped up in 4 layers lol

My handsome hubby taking pics 

I even mangaed to finish my wee minion "Dave" that will live in the caravan

tho Tillie wasn't impressed with him

The site was stunning and had lots of nice walks for us, plus just 20 odd mile from Dumfries! Just what we needed for the first break of the year lol! The owner was so lovely, such a nice wee lady so helpful and couldn't do enough for you!

Anyways enough of our mini break, here's a wee card I was asked to make

Its been too long xx

Well hello strangers

What can I say??
Things have been rough here for lil me but I'm still smiling lol!
I won't bore you with all the details but lets just say things have went from bad to worse to good and great and then worse again! Trips to hospital, falls, bruises and lots of blood taking then catching the dreaded flu for 4 WEEKS all with trying one med after the other!

But I'm not complaining, just getting bit bored with being ill and felling bad that everyone else is so worried about me! Wish I could stop them all from worrying! I just get on with it and hoe that "today" will be a good day! 

So enough of that!
Howe are you lot doing? I do hope you are all well out there and not suffered with the rotten weather! We've been lucky, even when the bad storm hit the council actually had our roads almost all clear within a few days!

In between bumps and bruises I've been spoiled by my wonderful hubby!

OMG! Isn't "Wall-e" just fab!
Yes I named it lol!! Its sounds a bit like my fav little Disney Character when its cutting away, making some lovely sounds! Not only was I so over come when I walked in to find this sitting in our living-room Valentines morning, I fainted lol! Too much excitement for me, I thinks!

Now you all know its time for another Challenge at Dream Valley Challenges and this fortnight we are proudly being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps! The theme is a good old fav


Something we all make! Whether its a gift of maybe handmade jewellery or a card we all have a lil Happy Birthday item that will fit the Challenge! Here's what I have 

I loved making this! The Art Deco theme was something I adored at school and the Stamps from Crafts and Me were just perfect to use! Plus my lovely "Wall-e" cut out the lil shoe lol!

I would like to enter this into the following wee challenges
Stampin For The Weekend - Anything But a Card
