A fantastic day!!

Well I have had a super day today.
First, I got driven to peterborough by my amazing hubby and dropped off for 2 hours of absolute heaven with Chris and Lou demo-ing at sir stampalot. I tell you, these 2 ladies are just amazing, they made some yummy projects while I was standing there watching in awe, it takes me forever to do one nice-ish thing but Chris and Lou do oodles!!! thank you so much ladies, it was so nice to meet you in person and I am looking forward to when we can all meet up again xxxx

So this little baby sized card is from one that Chris was making and the photo on it is to try and pull in what lou was doing with her gorgeous Tilda photo on a card card, can't wait to see it finished . Lou led me astray and made me buy a swirly magnolia stamp ( well, thats what I told scott anyway!!!! he, he he ,he!!!!)

I had already started my ric rac challenge piece for the UK cricut crafters group over on papercraft planet but when I saw Chris make the tiddly litle step card I just had to have a go.

I love this picture. It is my great great Aunt Audrey and Uncle Dave in what was then thier pub, The royal oak in knaphill ,woking. Sadly Uncle Dave is no longer with us but Aunt Audrey is so this is a little gift for her. She is a bit poorly at the moment and rather old so will be pleased with a little bit of something I think. I added a couple of martha fronds and a paper flower being as I don't yet own the gorgeous cuttlebug quilled flowers die that Chris was using today. Omg, if you ahven't got one, you need it, its fab, of course you will also need to purchase Chris to make them but the die will be a start!! romfl!!!!

Heres a piccy from the side.

And here are the men in my life watching the aeroplanes that are at waddington airshow which is just across the field from my house. Mind you, Mo would only watch the quiet old ones, he took cover in the house or his tent for the big ones!!!

I try to get a photo of them every year watching the planes, same old scafollding but bigger little boy!!!
Thankyou for popping in on me, I love visitors!!
hugs Lou xxxxxx

  5. Wat a lovely keepsake for your Aunt, Lou! You're such a sweetie for making it for her! Cute pic of the boys! xxD

  6. Hi Lou, so pleased you enjoyed your day, it was so lovely to finaly meet you, and so great that you got inspiration from us both.
    your card is scrummy, and your aunt will adore it.
    your boys look to be enjoying themselves, I have seen a few planes today as we came to lincoln to see if we could find a couple of chairs, but sadly nothing fitted the bill.

    hope to see you again soon love chris xx

  7. I just thought I would leave you a comment as you said that when you watch others crafting they make it look easy & it's done in double quick time. then try doing it yourself & it takes a lot of faffing about.
    I love the photo of big & little boy, I try to take lots of photos as the children grow so quickly
    take care Mandy

  8. What a great weekend you've had. I love the card an so will your aunt. Can't wait to see these quilling dies for the Cuttlebug. Mo probably wouldn't have liked the big fireworks we set off tonight, but love seeing him watching the planes.

  9. wow what a fab weekend you had you lucky girl, your card is stunning and the photograph makes it extra special...that photo of your boys on the scaffolding is brilliant
