Another long but fun filled day.
We have been hanging bats and painting faces on milk bottle ghosts, but all that will have to wait till tomorrow.
I have been very glad to see the back of this week given everything that has gone on at work. At least I am ending it on a high note with a long weekend with the littlest Grandchildren. But where do the hours in a day disappear to?
They came and collected me after work with plans to visit my Mum, or 'PatPat' as she is affectionately known, before heading home to finish off 50 ghosts and several strings of bats for Halloween.
Unfortunately the motorway had other ideas, and by the time we got back home and had fed and watered everyone there is very little time or energy to do anything but sleep, so I will call it a night and try again tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by anyway.
I hope you caught Suz fabulous shows on Create and Craft today using the amazing new stamps from Paper Panda at Creative Expressions.
I have spent the entire day at work dealing with the repercussions from yet another power failure.
We had another 12 hours without power, which has caused us major problems as you can imagine, and not even hot water for a coffee. Thank goodness for a lovely crafty friend living next door with a gas hob and plenty of thermos flasks.
Memories of childhood this evening. We have just had a power cut which has meant that the Grandkids have had to play a board game by candle light, instead of being stuck to their phones. That will teach them to keep them charged up lol.
One of my favourite stamp companies is Altenew.
I love the layering stamps which make colouring in a breeze.
And the fact that lots of the sets have co-ordinating dies.
We had a class using them some time last year, and these are a couple of the cards that I made to inspire the Girls.
Of course I got my inspiration from Pinterest, an amazing place, but make sure that you have a few hours to spare since it is very addictive.
Here is a second card that I made, this time as a Thank You card.
Once again I used a stencil and some soft ink in the background.
I stamped some small flower sprays and leaves directly on to the card
before adding my stamped and die cut flowers, a die cut sentiment and some gems.
Thanks for stopping by. I had better post this before the power goes out again and the Internet won't let me lol.
We have a new challenge today over at CraftyCardmakers, which I'm sad to say will be our last.
I joined the Team on 3rd October 2011 for Challenge 53, and have enjoyed every moment of my time with an incredible group of crafty people. I will certainly miss the challenge of creating something specific to share with you although I'm sure that I will see you all around Blogland at some point.
I hope that you have had a great weekend. I feel like my crafty mojo has finally returned, hopefully for longer than a couple of days.
Just a quick reminder that the fabulous Jane Gill will be on Create and Craft tomorrow at 3.45pm and 6.45pm.
I managed to send a few cards to her for the shows, so here is a reminder of a couple of mine to look out for.
It's the weekend at last, and hopefully I will manage to get back into some sort of crafty mode. I am so far behind with everything, including a birthday card for a very special young lady who is 3 today.
Unfortunately I have need of yet another 'Thinking of You' card as one of the boys at work lost his Mum last night.
I do love a good spotlight.
Thanks for stopping by.
