There's no place like home!

There's no place like home! - isn't that a lovely saying don't you think, nothing better than coming home and feeling comfortable and safe in your own surroundings . As much as I love going away and at the time wish I could stay forever it is still nice to come home and get in your own bed!!
Look at the glitter vision on the screen so sparkly!!
This is a card I have made my work colleague KT as she will be leaving work and setting up home with her boyfriend and moving to a new job as you can imagine she is way excited I hope they have many happy times in their new home together!!
As always, Well most of the time I have used an Elzybell image I think I have a stamp for every occasion by this make!! lol x
I will enter my card into
Papercutz challenge - anything goes
Make It Monday - anything goes
Ginger Loft - die cuts or punches
Have a lovely day in this beautiful sunshine!!

I survived!!

Good evening!!
Incase you were interested thought I would post a few pics of our week away.
1st up is me skiing downhill looking rather cocky but can't remember if I'm waving or signalling to put the blooming camera down as I'm out of control lol!!
Another of me stationery as I've just flown down the slope!!!
(not the one in the background silly the slope running parallel!)
Maybe next time I might tackle the steep one! (yeah right!!)
My other half Mark looking a little squinty think the sun may be in his eyes lol it was very hot and he come back with quite a sun tan on his chops and a little crispy too did tell him to wear suncream!!
Did he listen - no!!
A rare photo of Dumb and Dumber they had never snowboarded before and after their 1st two hour lesson decided they didn't need anymore apparently and for the rest of the week were boarding down slopes I wouldn't even walk down!!
The only time we saw them was at lunchtime to feed their tums - typical teenagers!!
We had a fab week, it was certainly knackering and I will remember to workout before I go next time as come the third day I couldn't even walk, literally I was in agony!!
As they say no pain no gain!!
After a bit of pampering in the jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and heated sun lounger I was back to skiing the next day.
It was the first time for us and would thoroughly recommend it although tiring it was fun fun fun!!
Looking forward to catching up with you all and hopefully get some crafting done!!

Shimmery and Sparkly Card!

Hi de Hi Campers!!!
I'm back with a very girly card this time using one of my birthday pressies from a very very special friend and this is the first time I have inked her - isn't she cute!
She is extremely sparkly as i have glamour dusted her and the flowers are lovely and shimmery due to being sprayed to death with pearl glimmer mist -ooh they twinkle a treat!!
I have followed the sketch over at Sweet Stampin they do the most fantastic sketches!
Have you seen my lovely new watermark, i'm so chuffed with myself that i managed to apply it, but then how could i go wrong as the lovely Lynne over at Sentiments 4 You gave me some easy instructions to follow so if I can do it so can you!!
You need to go take a look as she has some fab stamps and digi stamps at very reasonable prices - go see!!
Now as promised more hand made Birthday cards that I received

Look at these beauties from Tracy and Caz
and these scrummy pink ones from Jackie and my niece Anna!
This may be my last post for a week or so as will be going Skiing for the first time in my life, I am very excited but also slightly nervous as want to arrive back in one piece and not in a full body cast!!!
Please keep those fingers and toes crossed for me!
Toodle pop!!
