Easter Bunnies

Hi everyone!
Sorry blogging has been a bit sporadic recently.  I'm only just catching up with myself since Mr C and I were down South visiting friends.  We had a lovely few days with them and the weather was sunny and warm which was an added bonus.  We came home last Tuesday and the time has whizzed past since then.

Yesterday I was at the Dancing on Ice Final Tour at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.  The show was wonderful and Torvill and Dean danced Bolero which was spectacular.  Unfortunately the venue left a lot to be desired considering it was only opened in September 2013.  I can only describe it as a football stadium with walls, dirty concrete ones at that.  Having travelled from Perth the first thing my pals and I wanted was a cuppa, not one cafe to be found with seats so we had a "fine dining" experience of eating chips on top of a bin ... class!  Rant over!

This morning I was busy doing housework, then I did some jewellery making to take to the school fair and now I'm trying to catch up with blog visiting and some DT work.  Goodness knows how I ever had time to work.  Enjoy the rest of your day.
Hugs

Round and Round

Hi peeps!
Hope you are all well and enjoying your day.  Nothing much happening in our household today.  Mr C is working until midnight and my granddaughter is staying over as her Mum is doing a nightshift so I suppose I'd better go and rustle something up for tea!

Catch up with you again soon.

Christmas Card DT - Favourite Colouring Medium

Hi peeps!
Another week has sped by and nothing done!!!  Going to have a day in the craft room today as Mr C and I are off on our travels again at the end of the week so I'll need to try to be organised.

Our theme at Christmas Card Challenges today is to use your favourite colouring medium and mine is using my Promarkers.  I don't have that many and I'm not particularly good at colouring and shading but I try!

Enjoy your Sunday.
Hugs

Get Well Soon

Hi everyone!
Hope you are all well this morning and raring to tackle another week.  This card is simply one I made and I've tried to fit it into some challenges.  The digi has been coloured for ages but I've just never got around to putting her onto a card!

Granddaughter has orthodontist after school then she's going to buy her Mum's birthday pressie and I've no doubt she'll want to fit in a coffee too!

Suzy Bee DT - White on White

Hi all!
Well, Oban was an experience.  If it had been dry and warm it would have been lovely but we had wind, rain, hail, sleet, snow, thunder and lightening ... all in one day!  Thankfully we had taken our waterproof coats and hats with us so all in all it was OK.  There were plenty of cafes to duck in and out of!

Here are two views from our hotel window -

Sleety snow!

Across the bay when there was a break in the weather!
On now to what I should have been doing before I left ... making this card for Suzy Bee!  I thought it was done as I'm a bit ahead of the challenges but for some reason this one got missed.  Anyway here it is now.
Hugs

Oban ... here we come!

Morning all!
Well it's blowing a hoolie and absolutely hissing down here in my little corner of the world!  Mr C and I are off to Oban for a couple of nights to celebrate his birthday tomorrow.

Unfortunately I don't have any creations to share with you while I'm away but I'll be back to share my Christmas makes on Sunday.

Be good!
Hugs
