What a great weekend

I would thoroughly recommend a weekend away with the girls to create every once in a while! We had a blast completing 12 Christmas cards each as part of a Stampin Up, Stamp A Stack (if you want more details let me know) as well as a few other cards and a gift box or two and a couple of scrapbook layouts!!!!

Here are some of the cards I made - using mostly Stampin Up products.

Busy, busy, busy

I know, missing in action again - but I hope to have something to show next week as I am heading away for a crafting weekend with the girls - and boy do I need it!!

I have just started work after 7 years off with my kids and while it is not full time it still has me leaving the house with two kids at 8am which has never been an easy thing in our household. Oh well we all survived the first week and I am finding that I do quite like the work - still.

So I am hoping to get heaps of cards and christmas cards and atcs made this weekend and I am hoping to get some good nights sleep and a lie in too not to mention great friends and hopefully lovely weather for a walk along the beach.

Better go pack ...

Dragon Cake

Once again - not craft related but certainly tasty. Mr 6 had the Chicken Pocks when it was his birthday, so the sleepover that we had planned had to be cancelled. Finally I got around to organising another sleepover and then had to make a cake too. The boys were very good and didn't wake till 6 am (which is very early for this household!!!!)

Anyway here is the cake - I got the pattern from the internet - where else? Based loosely on the dragon from Jane and the Dragon a popular TV show around here just now.
