Just Swinging By

Evening, a bit late in the day with my post but suppose better late than never!  Nothing much been happening here lately, have been having a bit of a declutter, a bit late in the day for a Spring Clean too but it's been great sorting bits out and getting rid of stuff I no longer use..or need!  lol

Took some time out to make a few cards including the one I'm showing off today, it's for an anniversary and I love this LOTV stamp - The sentiment which goes with it is Together Forever which is very apt I think for an anniversary card, but I'd got these lovely little postage stamp ones and liked the sentiment on that used the other on the inside above the verse!

Still got a few cards on my list of to do's but as it's the bank holiday this weekend I might have a bit of me time, hope you all have fun and that the sun shines on you all xx

On The Road Again

Afternoon all, hope you're all refreshed after the lovely Sunny Bank Holiday weekend. It's still nice and sunny here today but it's a bit on the windy side...defo not as warm as yesterday. Had a pretty quiet weekend, had a friend down from Scotland so we shopped on Saturday and Sunday was my eldest sisters birthday so we spend that up at my other sister's having a BBQ which was really first of the year!

Card today is another of the ones I made in advance. I'm well up on my card making this year...for a good job, been asked over the last couple of weeks for quite a few cards - mainly for anniversaries and "big" birthday's so I'm going to be busy with them over the next few weeks!

Back to work today, been a funny few weeks, had Easter week off (+ Good Friday) came back, then had a long weekend last weekend and then a BH off yesterday....I'll be going into shock next week when I have to do a full week!
