Penny Black inspired by Mac

Happy bank holiday Monday, hope your having a good day, I'm enjoying my last day's leave as I go back to work in the morning! Boo..............

Here is a card I made to give to my friend Sasha as a THANK YOU for having my dog Mac stay with her while we were on holiday, she goes to Egypt today but when shes back were going to the big craft fair down in Exeter, so I will put in some spends so she can treat her self.

This stamp reminds me of Mac, he loves sleeping on his back. I coloured the image with watercolours, coloured the flowers with shimmerz and mounted it onto some fun doodlebug papers.

I am entering the card into the following challenges: One Stop - Cute & Cuddly, Crafty Creations - The Farm (all farmers have a dog right? lol)

Home again......

Hello to you all, firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who left lovely good luck, congratulations and well wishes on my blog in relation to my wedding, so kind of you all we had a brilliant time and have just returned from Mexico.

Mexico was amazing, its up there on my must return to list, above is a pic of the view from our balcony - we were spoilt. Every thing about Mexico was amazing, we even swam with whale sharks - which was just brilliant - a definite once in a lift time experience. The whale sharks were amazing, so big, beautiful and peaceful, there markings were amazing. There must have been over 100 of them swimming around.

I am looking forward to getting crafty - I cant believe I missed it whilst away - so hopefully I will be quite productive once tonight comes round.

In the mean time - I'm am sorting out my house which I rent out the latest scum bag tenant trashed it - stole the rugs and didn't pay £1500 rent, along with just about every other bill there is to pay - so before the wedding I shut the door had the locks changed and decided to sort it out when I get back. Its a right mess and he was only there a few months - I don't know how some people can live like they do. However its not all bad - its only a small town where we live - Ive tracked him down so will be returning his skanky abandoned sofa later - I don't consider it part payment for rent lol!

The pics are starting to appear, these were taken by my brother and cousin, the cake was amazing, made by my sister in law Claire-Louise, each layer was a different flavour made from her secret yummy recipes, she did us very proud.

Thank you to every one who entered my blog candy and gave me so so many kind messages, it is really lovely of you all, I have not managed to visit all the blogs yet, but have found loads of new and amazing ones I will be looking at again and again.

I am apologising massively as I have not done the drew yet - all of a sudden my cool calm planning went totally wrong, and I have been a headless chicken since Tues.

So apologies again, I will do the draw over the weekend and let the winner know..........................

In the mean time I'm off to get married! x
