New Home

At last our daughter Nicola is in her new home. We have had a very busy few days helping to move her in, it was such hard work, she has a bought a 3 storey New Build and it is very nice and spacious, but carrying all that stuff up 2 flights did me in. Who needs step aerobics, my calves are aching, and on top of all that we are decorating the lounge and having a new carpet fitted tomorrow, so we have just spent the morning moving out the Sofa and TV etc, hate to admit it but I'm getting too old for all this, anyway Brian is playing Golf this Afternoon so I'm escaping to my craft room for a little play, just got lots of new goodies to play with and had no time to play with them, trouble is feeling a little bit Brain Dead.
I made a new home card using a Nina B spellbinders set called Home Sweet Home and a stamp set match from The Craft's Meow call Love Dwells Here. Papers are My Mind's Eye.

Fun at Waddesdon

The last two days we have been looking after Grace, and for once the weather behaved, it been a lovely couple of days. On Thursday we went to Waddesdon Manor, Grace had a super time with Curly (her Build a Bear teddy) and also made some new friends as we also went with my friend Daphne who is a child minder. We later met up with Grandad and had fun with the mirror sculptures.
On Friday she decorated a wooden box which had held Turkish Delight, she did a great job and it made a wonderful Treasure Box.

TE July Kit

Have you been enjoying the games? I have and this is from a very unsporty person. Team GB are doing so well and it makes me proud to be British.
Here's a few of the cards I've made using the July Kit from Taylored Expressions. Had a lot of fun making these cards and love the paper which is Tea For Two by Cosmo Cricket.

And there's More

More Christmas Cards that is, I made these in between watching the Olympics. Two Golds for us today at last. Watching it as as much exercise I'm getting maybe that's why I've put on 1lb this week.
