Spots and Stripes

Hello again :) - well it has been such a lovely week so far.  My OH is now off on holiday too and the sun has been shining.  On Sunday we spent the day in the garden with the kids and then ventured out to the park after lunch.  I then got an email asking for a birthday card for a motorbike lover - not having any motorbike themed items I trawlled the internet and found the following image which I used on the card below:

When I was making this card I really loved the colours from the Jovial Man collection on the Funky Hand Colour Me Happy cd I thought they went well with the digi image and with a bit of luck it happened to fit in with the Funky Hand challenge of Spots and Stripes! Yay So I have entered it in to the challenge.  I just hope the recipient liked his card!

After finishing this card I thought as it was a nice evening that we would go out for fish and chips at South Queensferry.  We had a delicious tea and then went for a walk (and ice cream) and my OH took these:

The ice-cream was delicious! Raspberry Ripple Flavour shlurp :)  Well I better go as I have a huge pile of ironing to do!  Got an exciting day out planned tomorrow too so will be heading to bed early :)  TTFN Vx

Zing Into Spring!

Hello blog land :) - Its nice to be back.  I have been so busy over the last couple of months getting ready for a Spring Fayre to raise funds for our local school.  The school kindly asked me to have a stall to sell my cards and crafty things.  It was a successful day and I made over £100 which was not bad for my first Fair!!  However, as a result of getting organised for the fair it did not leave me much time to do anything else - hence the lack of bloggage!  But I am here to change that and I will be a regular blogger again - promise :)

To celebrate my return I have made this for the Get Funky - Zing into Spring blog challange:

As you can see it is an easter sweetie bag filled with scrummy Cadbury Mini Eggs - delish.  It was a very quick and simple make - kids are on their easter holidays so I did not want to spend the whole day crafting and neglecting them - however, I think I just might cut out a few more of these and get them to decorate them on this wet afternoon :)  The papers are taken from Funky Hand Colour Me Happy craft CD.
Well I better go and get my ankle biters fed and watered - hopefully will be back soon!  TTFN Vx
