A rather fabulous day all round...

... hi, I've had a busy but great Saturday, hope you have had a good start to the weekend too :-)

I was up early (well, for a Saturday!) as I had to get my eldest son to meet the cubs as they went to Duxford for the day (I'll give you a synopsis of his review later!), from there I went up to the Scrapbook Sisters crop, and helped them finish setting up, then down to some serious crafting... ahem, well kinda...

We chat as we do, and we got onto one of the girls and her partners habit of sleepwalking/talking... now you know how these things go, we all have our little horror stories of this sort of thing (me about me included, but you had to be there... I'm not sharing that little gem on here!).  However, I have the sneaking suspicion that Julie got a picture of us all in the middle of me telling a story of a friend, who has a habit of sleepwalking... shall I share that one???   Oh why not!! ! Anyway, the short version of the story goes... so she wakes up and wonders why her bedsheets are muddy and there are leaves in the bed... her hubby tells her that he had to rescue her from the garden, where, in November, she was naked, holding onto one arm of the rotary washing line, and spinning round and round, going "wwwwwhhhhhheeeeeeee", like an over excited child, LOL!!!  Now, if that was me, I'd have kept quiet!!!  We were laughing so much (it's infectious!) and Julie had the camera out, so keep an eye on the Scrapbook Sisters blog as Julie is bound to put some pics up :-)

In between the hilarity I got four (yes four!!) cards done!! 

I think I've said it before, but these crops are so friendly... there is normally someone in the hall who has the doo wotsit that you have forgotten and is more than happy to share (or donate!), there are bits and bobs being passed from person to person, table to table all over the place, and it's lovely to see people helping each other... if you live near Kent, why not come along to the next one on 4th of December and have a fun day out with 80 or so fellow crafters??  Tickets will go on sale soon, so keep an eye on their website for them :-)

Right card, gosh sorry I'm really waffley tonight... you'd have thought I'd have had my fill of chatting for one day, but apparently not!


 I love to leave a bit more white space on baby cards than I normally do, no idea why, just me being quirky!!

And a close up...


Cute huh!!

This card is a perfect example of the SBS crops, as it has been made with bits I already had, some new things, and some that I have begged or, err, borrowed from people on my table :-)

Supplies:
White CS, DP - MME Quite Contrary; Pink Embossed Bazzill; Stampendous "Baby's Bath" Stamp, stamped on Neenah, coloured with copics, accented with Glossy Accents; Nesties Die - no idea which one but I borrowed it from Gayle (and unfortunately had to give it back); Prima Flowers (coloured with Chalk Eye); Epoxy Dot - Ladybug Crafts Ink; (White Tulle; Dummy Charm - liberated from Jakki's stash (but bought from a haberdashery shop in Rainham, Kent)

While I was at the crop, loads of people were giving me cards for my blog candy/card drive for Ovarian Cancer (click here for more info) - thank you - with these, the ones I have made, and those sent in from my blog friends we have over 70 cards already... there is still just enough time to make and send me a card though!!


Plenty more tomorrow... thanks for stopping by...

sweet card - love that scalloped nestie.
I had a colleague whose partner used to sleep walk like that and we often in stitches over his antics in the middle of the night ...

This is a cutie Sue and I do believe I have this stamp somewhere! I didn't sleepwalk probably more sleeptalked! I loved my bed so I would be in bed real early...didn't even need to be told lol. Mom would come in to put the ironing away and have a full conversation with me but I was sound asleep! She would talk about our 'conversation' the next day but I never had a clue what she was talking about lol. xx
