I'm still around!!!

Hi Everybody,

I'm still around and yes I have been looking at everybody's lovely creations but time has just got the better of me and I still need to take things easy so thats what i've done!

Yesterday Viv and myself went off to Port Sunlight to meet up with some friends at the "Happy Stamper Show" we had a great day and I was really good and didn't end up buying everything I saw for a change! Oh yes while we were there we also bumped into another friend which we had lost touch with so that was another added bonus.

Anyway I hope that everybody is ok and it's lovely to see so many Christmas cards popping up on blogs now. Take Care and hopefully it won't be too long before i'm posting again!!!

I've just had a look at what Craftin' Up colours that i've got and it'll work so well with that too. So Well Done Dan.

Well I really must make waves today and get into my craft room but i'm helping out at holiday club this morning and tomorrow morning so it'll not be until this afternoon / evening.

Take care everybody and have a lovely day.

Good Morning All,

Viv and myself were away at the weekend staying with a great friend in Basingstoke and Boy Oh Boy what a weekend we have had ...... Lots of fun & laughter and of course we just had to go to the craft show at Newbury Racecourse on Saturday but goodness me it was just sooo hot - we don't get very much nice weather so that was a bonus.

Oh well it's back to normality now and hopefully i'll get a chance to do a little crafting later, sorry for the lack of blogging over the weekend but there just wasn't enough hours in the day.

Take Care,

I’ve been tagged by Barbara (Hunnybunnycards)

I have been tagged by Barbara so here goes!


I remember that I was in a bad relationship and looking to get out of it – although it took a little longer than I anticipated - I did myself sorted and thankfully today I’m happily married.


1) I really must get cracking on some “Thank You Cards” for Lisa’s teachers as she has just left school.
2) Show willing and have a quick tidy up.
3) Food Shopping – we need to eat occasionally.
4) Get my kit bag ready for a stamping day tomorrow.
5) Catch up with emails


Cheese & Biscuits
Kettle Chips


Buy a nice house with a specially adapted craft room.
Visit my husbands family in the USA.
Have a holiday in Goa.
Treat all my family to something they really want.
Oh the list is endless!


Born in Buxton, Derbyshire where I stayed until my late teens, then moved just a couple of times to London and Leeds then back to my home ground Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak, Derbyshire

Now who can I tag with this, I think I’ll tag Michelle – The Card Grotto, Tara – Tara’s Designs and Jennifer – Jennifer’s sweet designs. Hopefully you don't mind girls!!

Stampin Up Party Went Well

WELL ............ I'm back guys and guess what I only spent £10:00 yes thats right TEN POUNDS only because my sales were so high (almost £400:00)
I ordered the cutie pie papers, rose red ink pad, earth elements 12x12 cardstock, (Oh so lovely stamp set - hostess gift) and something else but I cannot remember what! ............... I have just remembered I also ordered the three for you stamping set in a lovely tin.

So all in all it was a fantastic day and cannot wait for the goodies to arrive on Thursday now. To think yesterday I was worrying in case it all went wrong - silly fool I am!

"Stampin Up"

Mornin' Guys,

I'm really having problems in choosing what to order from my "Stampin Up" party tomorrow - I NEED everything but funds won't allow that! Can anybody tell me what they think are the best things to go for right now ..... there are just so many nice Stamps, Ink Pads and Papers but unfortunately we have to draw the line somewhere.

Thanks A Million.

Good Morning....

Good Morning Everybody,
Sorry that i've got no cards to show today but this week has just gone no where and today i've got Viv coming which is always nice then later another friend is coming to do our hair. I've just thrown together a pasta dish for dinner so thats one thing less to contend with later.

My new circular Nestabilies finally arrived from "Cut at Home" yesterday - they took a little longer than normal because they were on back order first then I have any craft goodies delivered to Dan's parents.

Oh well thats all for now but hopefully i'll be back soon with something to show!!!

Take Care,

"Stampin Up" Sympathy Card

Good Morning All,
I've finally got around to using my latest "Stampin Up" papers that I got when I bought the 'Close as a Memory' stamp set. I'm definately going to order some different ones at my party next Saturday!

I doubt that i'll get any crafting done today because i'm looking after my friends little boy - it's a teacher training day today and she's a teaching assistant so has to go into work.

Oh well thats all for now guys ........ Have a lovely day and i'll catch up again later.

..... And a couple more

A Lil' Bit of What I've Been Upto.......

Hi Guys,

Phew .......... i've had quite a busy week but I've still managed to make a few cards. I may not have left many comments on blogs recently but I have been looking and WoW there are so many lovely cards being shown well done everybody.

When I can get Dan to sit down with me for 10 minutes he can show me how to use this new camera but time is very scarce right now so please be patient and i'm really sorry about the quality of the pictures.

I'm Back ............. Finally

Hi Guys,

Sorry that I haven't been around for quite a while but the headache's have been horrendous and Viv has had a friend up to stay for a week from down south so I have been over there quite alot too. Anyway hopefully i'll start getting back to my normal self now i've had a good rest.

I did manage to get one card made while i've been away from the blogs! It's a sympathy card that had to be done so I used my new "Stampin Up" sympathy stamp set. Sorry the photo doesn't do it any justice as I took the photo on my mobile phone and it the main cardstock has turned out brown but it was really green and the flower is very pale lemon.

Well thats all for today but hopefully i'll be back tomorrow - Take Care.
Love Pam xx

Tuesday, 27 May 2008

Good Morning Everybody.......


Sorry I haven't been around much recently but i've been kept quite busy and the headache's are still very frequent. Yesterday I went to my very first "Stampin Up" party with Viv and yes well ....... I can feel more money being spent - never mind! I ordered some gorgeous papers and a stamp set but i'm going to have a party myself so I can get more!

Hopefully today seen as though it's raining so much I think i'll just go and hide away in my craft room so hopefully i'll have some cards to show later.
Take care and have a nice day everybody.
