Go Slow...

Hi All, hope you have had a great weekend!!

Yesterday was the Scrapbook Sisters Crop, and from there we went to a friends house for a BBQ/Birthday Party for their daughter.  The crop was fabulous as usual, and I caught up with loads of my crafty friends, not least Julie, who I introduced to the wonders of both Kenny K images and Neenah cardstock (which I get from here)

Today has been a lazy day, except for the washing machine which has been working flat out!!

HB has been working hard in the garage getting the Mini ready for the London to Brighton run next weekend.  We are umming and ahhing if to take my car as a support vehicle/kid carrier or all to cram ourselves in the Mini... it's a tough call, and I'm not sure my spine can take sitting in a Mini all the way up to London and then down to Brighton, and then home again, plus the thought of leaving the house at 6am on a Sunday morning, as opposed to getting another couple of hours in bed, and joining them somewhere along the route, and having leg room and air conditioning too!  I've no worry the car will make it, it's just whether I will :-) 

Either way it will be a gentle pootle down to the coast, so today's card is apt :-)

I won this image the other week from Karen's Doodles after I entered one of the challenges (seem to be on a bit of a roll recently as found out today I had also won the recent Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!!) and just had to colour him up, he's so cute!!  It really is lovely to win something or be recognised as having created something good by others in the crafting community!

I couldn't resist adding some sparkle onto his cake!

And I decorated the inside too

CS/Paper - Kraft and Swimming Pool Bazzill; Bo Bunny - It's My Party
Dies - Whimsy Ticket Die; X cut Border Die; Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities

I'd like to enter these challenges please

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!!
