Last post of 2007

This year has flown by. It doesn't feel like 2 days ago that 2007 started and now we're hours away from 2008.

Not going to get philosophical (can't even spell it LOL) about what I had planned for 2007 and what I haven't done. All I'll say is that it's been a good one. On the crafty side, I met up again a few times with my fab crafty friends and spent far too much money - the bad influences know who they are ;o)

I also joined a fab team over on Really didn't know what I was getting into but the Pink Glitter Girls have made it such a great experience and I look forward to earning loads more points for our fab team in 2008 and taking part in my first ever circle journal.

So I hope everyone has a great New Years Eve and I'll see you all in 2008!!!!!!

Glory glory days

I couldn't let this day pass without a special mention of the fantastic effort that the mighty mighty Spurs put in at the Lane today. Also, when I set this blog up, I did mention that I'd be having a rant or 2 about the Spuds.

When I woke up this morning, I had my usual Saturday morning wish - that Spurs would score some goals and all being well actually win. Who would have believed that I'd be sitting here now after Reading scored 4 goals at the Lane but we still managed to win the game. Yep, we won by scoring 6 goals.

Apparently, Reading's Dave Kitson is a life long Spurs fan. His family were in the stands supporting Spurs and him. His ambition was to score at the Lane. Well, he definitely did that as he scored twice. Thanks Kitson - you've obviously forgotten about how stressful it is watching Spurs!!!!!

Thankfully, super Dimitar Berbatov was on form - scoring 4 of our goals. Let's hope they remember the winning feeling against Reading as we play them again next weekend in the FA Cup.

New Arrival

Had really good news yesterday morning as my cousins partner had a baby girl late on Boxing Day night. So to welcome little Nicole Harding, I've made these 2 cards - 1 for the proud parents and 1 for the even prouder grandparents.

Chill time

Hope everyone has enjoyed their Christmas. Mine was non stop from having Christmas Day breakfast over my sisters, back to my house for dinner (bit of a panic trying to fit the huge turkey in my oven) & tea and then over to my parents for Boxing Day where we had the usual cold turkey and chips for dinner ----- yum. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Still wondering how my mum got drunk when she was only eating wine gums :o)

I got a few crafty pressies ---- Stampendous clear monkey stamps, 2 sets of Quickutz cookie cutters, Sizzix alpha strip, the new Doodlebug knife (pink) and cutting mat (black). Got a lovely parcel from my Secret Santa - loads of gorgeous pink Doodlebug goodies.

I did get some non crafty pressies ---- new gloves, mug, diary and t-shirt --- all Spurs ;o) Jason Donovan and Lewis Hamilton auto-biogs as well.

I love the time between Christmas and New Year. Was planning on getting loads done but hmmmm that might not happen. I've finally been able to have a "chill" and play day today LOL.

40th Bella

My cousin was 40 on Friday so I made this card for her birthday. I love my Bella stamps

Happy Christmas Eve

Well, I've finished all the housework and the washing is done so I've finally got time to sit on my bum, watch Ella Enchanted (soppy Disney movie LOL) and post on my blog.

I did this layout last night for Week 3 challenge over on UKScrappers. The piccies are of my new car which is a Vauxhall Corsa - made coming up with a title very easy ;o)

I used Pencil Lines #38 as inspiration.

This weeks challenge

What with making all those Christmas cards, it had been a while since I did a scrapbook page but I finally did one last week.

This weeks challenge on was the ideal oppurtunity to break the drought. The title had to be a Take That song and ~ as I love the boys ~ it was perfect.

A very proud auntie

Had good news today - Daniel, my eldest nephew, passed his driving test!!!

After failing it twice before, the advice I gave him was to not tell anyone when his next test was so that he wouldn't feel pressured ----- and it obviously worked LOL

He phoned me at work to give me the good news. Really pleased for him as neither my sister or BIL drive so he hasn't had any extra practice at home. Suppose he'll be looking for a car now - don't think I fancy his insurance premium though - 18 year old lad - it's going to be a bit high OUCH

The things I do for my dad

After a daft request last year, for a Christmas card with train on for his railway club, I didn't really think that my dad could get worse but yep he has. This years he asked for a Christmas card with a golfer on it for his golfing buddy. This is what I've come up with LOL

Chickens at Christmas???

Shouldn't that be turkeys??? Not if you're my friend.

As mentioned previously, here is the Christmas chicken card. When I saw this Penny Black stamp, I just knew that I had to have it. He used to have 2 chickens (Apollo and Zeus) but he's just moved in with his girlfriend and bought another one (Athradite?).

It's a very simple card but the image is perfect for him :o)

First of many Christmas cards

I made this card for mum/dad to send to their sisters and brothers. It really sparkles thanks to Doodlebug sugar coated card, Glamour Dust, Glossy Accents
