I got a Pressie!

I have received this fab award from my mate Kim - thanks you really made my day!    If I can work it out (ha ha) I'd send it back to you because a) I think you're a pretty "wylde" woman yourself and b) you're a really smiley person and such good fun to be around - oh yes and a c) you HAVE  a teenage daughter......

It's the Wylde Women award and the rules are .
1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it's up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post.

2. Link back to this blogsite (http:// so Tammy can go visit all these wonderful women.and remember the Purpose of the Award: To send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.

Kim said : "I would like to give this award to Junie who is very new to blogland made me giggle so much yesterday I nearly fell off me chair whilst demoing...."

Wendy Horrod Class at CUL

These two beautiful girlie cards were made at a class at CraftsULove with Wendy.    They are so gorgeous.    I bought the die for the shoes but in the large 4"x4" and plan to cut them out using shrink plastic - watch this space as they say!

Alo, Elo, or is it Ello??????

I made these two cards for Kevin who celebrated and was awarded a medal for 22 years in the Met Police.   What a laugh the first one caused as I completely misspelt the word 'Ello?    I obviously didn't "listen veree kairfullee..."

Kim has done it again!

THANK YOU KIM!   I've done it - not perfect but I know what I'm doing now!!!!

Julie our Office Gem

Our wonderful Julie who is the 'oracle' of the Speech & Language Team celebrates her 60th Birthday this Summer and I was asked to make this card for all the team to sign.  Happy Birthday Julie!

Up the Hammers! Not really - always will be a True Blue!

This card was made for my friends husband - trust her, she wanted both Husband AND Ian on it!  Love you lots Paula!

All or Nothing!

I had so much information to be added on this order - husband/wife sharing 50th Birthday, Rotary 41 club members/evening suit attire - not my normal type of card but I don't think it went to badly in the end and Julie was pleased. 

Wedding Card

This card was made for my friend Colleen to give to her friends to celebrate their Wedding Day.    I've been going through a real crafting "drought" lately - I really hope it doesn't last much longer - I've got lots of new things to play with...

Teachers Thank You Card

This card I made for my son's teacher at the end of another fantastic year at his superb school. She always phones to say thank you for the beautiful card. I think she likes them better than the pressies!!!!!!!

CUL's Birthday Bash

What a fantastic day yesterday! Being "kids free" for the weekend I decided to spend most of Saturday at one of my very favourite places - CraftsULove! They were celebrating their 2nd Birthday and WOW did they put on a good time!

There were - as always - fantastic demonstrations by Kim Fee, Wendy Horrod, Helen Meighan, Stamping Caz and Paula Pascual. The sun shone, balloons were popping and Paula and everyone were running around like the proverbial blue **** fly but always with happy smiley faces.

I met up with my crafting buddies Sarah K, Sandra & Becca and we decided that we needed to refuel after sitting watching, talking and laughing (all in the name of crafting, of course!) so we popped off to the local public house for a very nice lunch in the sunshine and a damn good goss!

I need to unpack my purchases now and ooh and aah just a bit more....

What a Week!

It's been one of those weeks! I came home on Monday and narrowly escaped my bedroom ceiling falling in on top of me thanks to a leak in the loft - what a mess! I managed (with the help of my good friends Dave & Andi) to cover the hole with plastic sheeting but my room each night is full of "flying things" and the plastic shakes in the wind. Needless to say, I've not had a lot of sleep but have been able to sit and craft at very unusual hours of the night!

This afternoon I went over to Crafts U Love to see Kim Fee's demonstration - she's so lovely and her cards are really gorgeous. Wendy Horrod was there too - I felt quite priviledged to sit with two such talented crafters. I bought some of the lovely papers that Kim was using, but I'm really saving my pennies for CUL's 2nd Birthday next Saturday when there's going to be loads of demos and new goodies. I even won £10 on the lottery to help towards my spends!

British 10K Run - July 2008

This morning we left very early to support my friends here who ran to raise money for the Brighton, Hove & West Sussex Deaf Childrens' Society. Whilst we munched on our sausage and bacon sandwiches, they ran through the streets of Westminster in the rain. Congratulations to you all - Paul, Alan, Pete, Colin, Gill & Pauline - also to Geoff & Tina who went missing at this point!
