Good Morning Ladies,
It was so lovely spending the day with both of my dear friends yesterday, the first moment I thought about time was when Pat said "Omg it's ten to five"!! That pretty much sums up our day, Pat treated us to lunch which Paul prepared perfectly, we then got down to some serious crafting, all doing completely different things. Pat has very kindly left me her Gemini to play with while she is away for a few days, YAY!! (Although I don't think I will ever get used to the complicated plate combinations, it's less of a 'sandwich' more a 'smorgasbord') !!
Today's card is a real 'Clean and Simple' card, very quick and easy too, I almost feel a fraud posting it, but somehow it works and I love it, I think it's down to that stunning 'Definitely Dahlia' stamp, it's just such an awesome stamp, I have to force myself to not pick it up!
Definitely Dahlia Stamp
If any of you would like one just let me know I will add it to this current order. It's been an exciting week this week as Stampin'Up! Have been doing little sneak peeks of the upcoming Autumn Winter Catalogue, ooh there are lots of metallics, not all Christmas either, eeek, I can't wait to see the actual catalogue!!
Back to the holiday prep today, Brenda you had it spot on when you said that it makes the excitement of the holiday start earlier, it does take huge amounts of preparation and how Paul manages to shoe horn everything plus the kitchen sink into that car, roof box and trailer never ceases to amaze me!! I have to hide my smile though as almost every year he gives a deadline for having your bags in the lounge ready to pack in the car, just about every year just as he thinks he has finished one of the girls will come out with a bag of toiletries or hair dryers/straightners, they just look sheepish and give a little 'oops'!! He always manages to fit it in somewhere, it's like a huge jigsaw puzzle, we just hold out breath every time we have to go through customs, we did get stopped once, the guy just looked it the back of the car, shook his head and said 'Just don't worry' and waved us on, I think the thought of unpacking that lit was clearly off putting!!
I have a list of lists that cover 'To Do', 'To Buy', 'To pack' and a few more, I'm the Queen of lists I'm afraid!
Pat I hope your procedure goes smoothly today, I will be thinking of you my lovely XXX
Maria so sorry to hear your appointment was a waste of time, it's so frustrating. How was your SU party?? Hope you had a good time XXX
Sending love and hugs
