Bah humbug-something new

A lovely day was had by all yesterday. The weather stayed lovely and Maddison had a great time at the Science Museum.  She loved looking at all the planes and enjoyed playing in part of one upstairs where you could see the cockpit. She pretended she was at the control and started all the engines, we had to pretend to fasten our seatbelt, and take off.  We had a picnic and a bag of chips in the little park then back inside to see all the experiments, she had a go on all of them twice. There was also some sports going on so she joined in all of those too. She won the obstacle race twice, mind you she was very compatative and there was some cheating. After all the exercise it was icecream time then back on the train. It was standing room only. Maddison had a different idea and lay down and nodded off. Must admit by this time I was wishing I could do the same.

Today I have had a lovely play with new things for the Bah humbug challenge. I have used one set of my stamps that I bought with my winning voucher. I used two cosmic shimmer sprays then overstamped with snowflakes. I used my snowflake die then glittered it and used  another of my set for the centre. Added some new ribbon and New gems from my prize. I have also made  8 cards from a new Fizzy Moon diecut pad called Festive Fun. It makes 24 cards, but I am using it to make 48 cards. I am making them this year to post without costing me a fortune.
I suppose I had better go and tidy my dinning room up now. It's a good job you all can't see the mess I've managed to make, also the massive pile of ironing I've been ignoring. Oh well it is my hols after all.
Thanks for visiting. Happy crafting. Hugs x ChrisB

  5. sounds like you had a fun day Chris - not surprised Maddie slept after all that! You have been really busy making all those cards - love the blue snowflake one

  6. Hi Chris, glad you had such a lovely time with Maddison but I can imagine you wanted to go to sleep with her on the way back, lol! I felt the same a couple of weeks ago after a day at the zoo with my 2 granddaughters. I couldn't nod off though as I was driving, lol!

    Blimey, you put me to shame with the number of gorgeous cards you've made. I just know I'll be panicking at the last minute as per usual come December.
