Wow had a very busy weekend as we had Maddison  staying Friday, Saturday and Sunday until school on Monday morning. She was really good, we had kidnapped one of her dolls baby blue and left her a secret letter and map and clues around the house so she could solve them and find him. He was hidden upstairs in a little suitcase along with some treats, she had a great time finding him.  Saturday night we watched the final of Britains got Talent, which she loved watching. Sunday she was out all day with her Daddy. He was working all night so Grandad gave her a bath, then I dried her and it was time for milk and biscuits. After that it was my job to tuck her up in bed and  we finished reading the Faraway tree by Enid Blyton.  I was up bright and early Monday morning just incase her Daddy was late in from work. She was no trouble getting up and she was soon off to school with her Daddy.

I've just managed to get all my washing done and dryed today in the lovely sunshine. Mind you just after tea the heavens opened and we have had a  torrential downpour and thunder storm and hailstones. Glad I wasn't out in it.

I've been crafting tonight but can't show you what until tomorrow  as it's not finished, but I do have some cards I made  last week. The first card uses the new Phil Martin stamp I bought last week at the show. I have stamped and embossed it and also the sentiment. The flowers are made with Heartfelt Creation stamps and cut out by hand. I added pearls in the centres.

The next two cards are using images I have coloured with Promarkers and Die cut I have also used some stamps to finish the cards.

This next card as been made with the first ever die I bought years ago. I have inked the card with distress ink to colour it. Added a acetate window  into my cut apperature. and stamped my wording inside.

The final card for tonight is a card I have made for my Hubby for Fathers Day using one of the Happy hoppers. I have put glossy accents on the bubbles.

I also used a bubble stamp for my background.

I hope your week as started off well and that you have been enjoying the sunshine. Thanks for visiting. Happy crafting. Love and hugs x ChrisB
