Its Arrived

  • Yes, my gorgeous new Craft Robo arrived promptly this morning, which is why I'm making this post quick so I can go and install it on the laptop, will have to do the desktop another day as Jay has to rearrange all the sockets.
  • Quick knock at the door and whooo hoooo my new Canon 400D with extra lenses has just been delivered, what is a girl to play with first.
  • Just in case you're wondering if I won the lottery, the answer is no, but I'm still planning on winning it, my Grandad passed away (don't be sorry, he had a good life and died at aged 87) in February and he made a few provisions for me and the boys and said before his passing that I was to have fun and treat myself and that's exactly what I'm doing...he used to say about me 'if that girl had money in her pocket it would burn a bloody hole in it' he was quite right, I don't save and spend whatever is left in my Bank account and more if I can get away with it lol.
  • Two cards I made last night, first one is made from DCWV Birthday stack and my freebie embossing folder which I've chalked up and added Sakura for the sugar strands and a nice burgundy ribbon for added punch.



Second one is made using some scraps of Basic Grey Two Scoops, same embossing folder only this time I sanded the image away to reveal the white core of the cardstock, added a ribbon and hey presto, two cards all ready for posting onto friends :)



Right I really must go and play xxx

Hon, you're right to spend and enjoy. When I had my inheritance from my dad, we bought a small boat! (How else would we ever have afforded one??!!) When you do what you do, and use your new things, you'll think of your grandad, and remember him fondly. And that is the best legacy anyone could ever have. Looking forward to seeing much new crafty goodness. xx
