Well I did have a bubbly post prepared but due to some bad news this will be a short & sweet post. After being ill all week with this horrid bug going round I was cheered up to pick my PTI goodies yesterday.

So to get myself out of the gloominess of being ill I had to try out my new Limitless Layers Dies :) They are ABSOLUTELY scrumptious! I decided to play along with the A Passion for Papertrey Ink latest challenge HERE.

The challenge is to CASE something so I decided to case Debbie Olson's Tags HERE. Instead of using the 2010 Holiday Tags set which I also got, I decided to use 3 of the small images from Holiday Jar Fillers.

Below is a close up. You can see that I have cased the layer idea!

The sad news I got today was that my Uncle passed away today after a 2 year battle with cancer. May you Rest in Peace Uncle Syd with Mum, Nana & Grandad. I miss you all SO much.

This is a picture of my Uncle. He had a passion for walking.

Sweet Sunday Sketch


Tonight I thought I'd share a card I made for my neighbour. It is to say Thank you for their patience whilst we had our driveway done! I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch HERE for my LO.

I coloured the flowers using the Pure Poppy Copic Trio and then mounted it onto some Pure Poppy CS. I added some Hawaiian Shores CS and Bitty Dot Satin Ribbon to a White card base. Love this colour combo at the mo!

As I shared the card I thought I would share some pics of the NEW driveway & patio! The weather stayed dry for a little time this afternoon so I went out and took some shots with the Nikon!

Just one car on the drive today as K was at work but there is plenty of room for the Seat next to Volly the Volvo!

Nice shot of the freshly laid lawn from two different angles! It's so green and lush!

Here's the patio! Excuse the black tape! This is to highlight to the company that we are not satisfied that all the cat prints that are NOT Mr Cats have been sorted!

A pic from the house looking the other way! Bought the garden storage today which fir nicely in front of the shed! Garden needs a bit of TLC! Hopefully this weekend when the weather is supposed to be nice!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to watch Modern Family & Idiot Abroad now :)

A Passion for Papertrey Make & Take Day!

Hello there!

I am back! Life as always has been busy around here but I planned my time and was able to attend the A Passion for Papertrey Make & Take yesterday. It was such as fun day :) I travelled down to Sheffield with my friend Kerry to meet up with Kate & Aimes and the A Passion of Papertrey gang! I thought I would share a few pics of the day!

Above is Kate & Aimes who really planned and worked hard to make the day SO much fun and a total success. Hope they plan to do another one again soon!

Above is Aimes with the project she created for us to make. I really enjoyed using some of the PTI sets that are not in my collection yet!

The pic above and below are of some of the people who travelled near and far to come to the day! Here we are enjoying a lovely lunch break!

Below is me with total concentration of completing a project! I was totally unaware Kerry had taken this pic of me! Lol!
Finally here is a group shot!

It was truly a FUN day and it was lovely to meet people and put names to faces! Well after a day of creating I was inspired to carry on this morning! I thought instead of sharing the projects we made yesterday I would make a card for the current challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey - Autumn.

I thought it fitting to use my Falling Leaves stamp set which has seen little ink! I also broke out a couple of new products I bought in the last release. Fine Linen CS and the Tag Sale 1 die. It's the first time I've used the Eyelet Lace die and Terracotta Tile Ribbon and CS!

I had better get on with some other things as I have a list as long as my arm! Thanks for stopping by!
