Coffee and Cream

Hi everyone

Hope you all had a nice weekend. I've had a really nice one - went to the SECC on Friday to the Hobbycrafts Show. It was my future daughter-in-law's first time and she loved it! Met the fantastic Kath and the equally brilliant Lorraine - can't wait for the next one so we can meet up again! We bought loads of lovely new toys, including the new Tim Holtz Distress Inks which Craft at Home had on special offer. They were £4.75 each which is good value right away but then if you bought 4 you got the 5th one free! How cool is that? I honestly have never known this shop to be over priced. Angela is so fair and they have always been fantastic with the kids. Needless to say I bought loads of new MME papers from Craftwork Cards. I'll look at them for a while before I use them; they're much too nice to cut up. The folk at this stand are always so nice and so generous in showing you how they have made their creations. You can see we had a lovely time!

On Saturday, Jack, Erin and I went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D. How good is Johnny Depp? It doesn't matter what film he makes, he just seems to get better and better, if that's possible. Kim's 15th birthday was on Saturday as well but she's 15 now so she wanted to disappear with her pals for the day. We all went to Suzanne's for the cake and stuff at tea-time. Beats cooking, doesn't it! Chummed Suzanne to take wee Steven to a fancy dress party on Sunday and Celtic had a nice wee win so all in all, quite a nice weekend. Anyway, enough rambling. Onto the business.

This card is a first for me. I've never made a tent card before. I was just about to attempt one of those easel card thingies (it takes me a while to try anything new!) but then I found the instructions for these tent cards and they were so clear I thought even I couldn't go wrong so I gave it a go. It's for my mother for the big day - I hope she doesn't look at my blog before then!
