I'm back......

Hi everyone, back from my hols and have missed you all!!!! Had a wonderful time apart from 2 pieces of bad news; the airline I worked for went into administration so I lost my job! I'm guessing you all know it was XL Airways!!! Then I learned that a colleague had passed away, he was the same age as me, so very sad news indeed.

Apart from that I'm in good spirits and hope to get back into card making soon, better start looking for another job first though eh?!!!

Meanwhile, a couple of snaps of the south of France. The one with the lake was taken because a group of Flamingos decided to land there outside our campsite one day!!!! (Note to self, must invest in a decent camera!!!)

Bye for now.

first and last...........

Hi Everyone, I must apologise for not posting for ages, I've been sooooo busy this week!

so this is my first post for a while and also my last for the next 4 weeks! I will be out of the country now firstly on hols then on business!

Anyway, so I will post 2 tonight... the first is my Daughters Birthday card, she'll be 18 tomorrow!! How old do I feel???? I used K&Co Roam Designer pad and Basic Grey Sugared, Doodlebug trim, chipboard embellishments free from Mag, Papertrey Inc Aqua Mist ribbon, Cricut Home Accents cart for flourish bottom right. Also finally got my Fiskars Water Threading punch!! so used that on velvet card at the bottom.

Second card is my first Christmas Card for this year, Magnolia image, papers from DCVW Christmas stack, red polka dot is Doodlebug, so is the ribbon, brad from Dovecraft and greeting from Craftwork Cards. Used tonnes of Glamour Dust on clothing and present, but I don't think it shows up much.....Used my new threading water punch along the bottom of the card blank again! Hope you like them...... See you when I get back.......... which will be first week in October!! OMG!!!
