Catching up...



I hope you've all had a good weekend & yours hasn't gone as quickly as mine lol.  I thought I'd catch up with a bit of blogging while hubby's out watching the England football match.  We've been off work & out & about so I have lots of crafty catching up to do.  You will pleased to know (if you're interested lol) that I got a dress & fascinator (well it just a bow on a headband really but it very pretty) for my son's forthcoming wedding (28th July) just gotta get jacket, shoes & bag now :S  
I also had to go to the dentist (again) while we were off & am slightly apprehensive as I have to have a lil minor op as I have an infection in my root canal - so I'm back to work tomorrow & when I finish at 2 it's straight to the dentist, what a great way to start the week!

Anyway that's what's been happening with me the past week & here is a couple of cards I made recently for my brothers birthday & Father's Day.  As I have been so short of time lately I used Pink Petticoat sentiments & papers - I am such a fan of Pink Petticoat & their designs lend themselves to CAS.  I used kraft card blanks & the papers are from the "Big Fella" collection & I just finished off with buttons, twine, punched stars & pearls.


The challenges:
Delightful - Anything Goes
Crafts & Me - Anything Goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - About the Boys
Moving Along With The Times - Happy Birthday
Fussy & Fancy - Boy Attitude
2 Sisters - Anything Goes


Thanks for looking :D
